West Salem is the side of Salem to the west of the Willamette River from downtown. Because of geography, west Salem residents are little isolated and have been left out of Salem, Oregon’s big brewery boom.

West Salem is home to one brewery, Xicha Brewing, known for amazing Latin food and Austrian/Bavarian beers.

Soon, West Salem will welcome a new outpost for those who crave local beer – the well-known Gilgamesh. At a new development at the corner of Wallace and Glen Creek, Gilgamesh’s west side bar/restaurant will open hopefully sometime this spring.

According to media, no brewing will take place in West Salem for Gilgamesh – as the 5,000 square foot location will be dedicated to food and drink.

I’m a fan of Gilgamesh’s South Salem location – of all the breweries in Oregon’s capital city, Gilgamesh has the best food menu and physical space. I enjoy sitting outside in the spring and summer at Gilgamesh South. I hope there’s outdoor seating when the new location opens up.

As far as neighboring businesses in the new shopping development, Gilgamesh West will be joined by a pet supply store and a medical office.
