So over at Farmer Brewing, the guy behind the blog is an apprentice brewer who is from the mid-valley who is doing his apprenticeship up in the Tri-Cities area of Washington.
In his post titled “Is it Time, Salem“, he talks about how Salem is in need of a microbrwerey and asks whether we’d like a brewery here. My answer (I left a comment) was a resounding YES, PLEASE!
As you can see by this site, I love good beer. I really enjoy going to Bend, Oregon because there are 6+ microbreweries in and around town. Corvallis has two breweries including Block 15 and Flat Tail Brewing. Why can’t Oregon’s second largest city have it’s own locally owned brewery?! We can, and we shall!
So, if you’re so inclined, head over to his post and encourage this young brewer to come back to Salem and open a microbrewery here in Oregon’s capital. Let’s do this!
