Vagabond Brewing in Salem, Oregon is undertaking a project that will help rejuvenate Salem’s brewing heritage, bringing Salem craft beer, a beer garden, and live music to the space to be called Victory Club. Our state’s capital has not been known as the best beer city, though it has been getting much better thanks to breweries like Vagabond, Santiam Brewing, Salem Ale Works, and Gilgamesh, and it will soon be the home of two cideries. Salem actually does have quite a bit of brewing history; in 1866 Samuel Adolph founded “Pacific Brewery” that burned down three years later, but was rebuilt and renamed Salem Brewery. In 1885 the Salem Brewery was renamed “Capitol Brewing” after Adolph sold the brewery to two employees named Maurice Klinger and Seraphin Beck.
Bend, Oregon’s award-winning Sunriver Brewing is one of many breweries forced to alter their beer lineup due to the Coronavirus shutdown.
