Breweries

The PNW and craft beer go hand in hand. Even in Oregon wine country this is no exception. Rogue Farms Chatoe in Independence pours twelve draft beers each representing the ingredients they cultivate locally. And by locally, we mean right there. The Honey Kölsch is brewed using honey from bees that are raised on the property and fresh jalapeños (also grown on site) are used to give certain Rogue beers their signature spice. Santiam Brewery in Salem offers fifteen home-brewed beers and a series of guest wine taps. They also offer a full menu and minors are allowed until 9pm so feel free to bring the kids in for dinner. Salem Ale Works, created by two former wildland firefighters, pride themselves in using local ingredients to support the growth of the community they love. As they pronounce on their website they, “put the ale in Salem.”
