Salem Ale Works was founded by two college friends and former wildland firefighters; Justin Ego and Jake Bonham. Their shared experiences and love of great craft beer gave rise to the formation of a nano-brewery in 2013; through which they bring well-crafted and enjoyable beers to the Salem community and beyond.
At SAW we honor the rich history of Salem, striving to have fun while passionately writing the latest chapter in our capital’s brewing legacy. Our beers are hand crafted in small batches using as many fresh, local ingredients as possible. We brew beer for you, our neighbors and friends; continually working at “Putting the Ale in Salem”.
