About Thompson Brewery & Public House

Make beer, not civil war.

In 1905, when the South Salem Hills were planted in orchards, a splendid house was built along the market road to Eugene as a dwelling for Civil War vet Franklin Thompson. Today, the Thompson Brewery & Public House is the first brewery in Salem to be established post-Prohibition.

Is it any surprise that the interior echoes with the laughter of an old friend? Nothing, it seems, hangs heavy in the air in this comfortable, century-old building. There's always a welcoming easiness extending to all. The deck at the Thompson is a perfect place to enjoy a meal and a housemade McMenamins pint.

Thompson Brewery & Public House allows pets in the front yard and picnic table ares only.

History

The Thompson Brewery and Public House is a remarkable place! These old walls have witnessed more than a century of colorful occupants, the remnants of which are still clearly visible throughout. From an early country home to a preschool, and from quiet family gatherings to traditional German folk dancing, this comfortable old house has played host to many wondrous manifestations....
