About Thompson Brewery

6 Barrel Brewhouse
Established: January 1990

2016 Brewery Production: 595 barrels • 1,190 kegs • 147,620 pints

The Thompson brewery, which opened in 1990 in a house built 85 years earlier for a Civil War veteran, is the longest-running post-Prohibition brewpub in Salem. A succession of brewers with big, strong personalities created a number of beers with big, strong personalities. All of which satisfies the big, strong personalities of Thompson's regulars just fine, thank you very much.
 
Black Widow Porter, featuring a healthy dose of black licorice, is one such brew of distinction. The Widow (as well as a sweet woodruff-infused version known as the Black Widower) still ventures out into the light every year around Halloween. Beer behemoths such as Old Cthulu, Romulan Imperial Ale and Pole Ax are all big ideas that grabbed hold and found voices in the Thompson's old stainless Grundy fermenters.
 
Today, Thompson Brewer Jennifer Kent keeps cantankerous resident spirit Franklin at bay while creating all kinds of interesting and unique ales. Here you will find such concoctions as Ginger Red, Spanish Coffee Porter, Magnuson Strong Ale (a tribute to a Thompson regular lost), and Bumble Blue Pale Ale. Jennifer's fine ales also represent at outside events like the Yamhill Lavender Festival.
 
Thompson's annual Barley Cup Brewfest is held every June and is sure to delight with live music on the patio and a variety of beers from McMenamins and guests alike.
