Always enjoy trying out a local brew pub when visiting an area and was really impressed with the beers I tasted on our visit. Our appetizer, burgers, and fries were delicious. The Witch City Red ale was one of the best red ales I've ever had. The Ploughman's Ale was excellent. Our server was kind enough to let me taste... More

We tried this restaurant on the recommendation of the owners of our B&B. It was a short walk a few blocks away and as it was a Tuesday night, it wasn't very crowded. The interior is modern and can hold a fair number of people. We sat near the bar and ordered from an extensive menu. We also sampled a... More

Salem Beer Works is a wonderful, fun establishment. The staff are great and the beer is even better. The watermelon beer available in summer months is served with a large slice of fresh melon on the side and is not to be missed! YUM!

I was in a meat and potatoes mood, so I ordered the steak tips. My girlfriend ordered the fish and chips. I wish I had done the same, I just didn't feel like dealing with a whole plate of french fries. The fried fish was excellent, just the way I remember it from my last visit a few years ago.... More

We are locals but we had not been to the Beer Works in many years so we decided to check it out. Obviously the huge draw is the many varieties of beer- if you are into that I would say this is a must-do. We are not drinkers, but the food was very good. The menu is huge with lots... More

My girlfriend and I came to eat here and we were excited to have a few drinks and some food. Well that didn't happen. The waitress was great but after we ordered our food one of the managers came out to deliver it and told us that we shouldn't have the dog on the patio and that we should have... More

We've been coming here for years. Husband often orders a special, I get a salad, burger, or sandwich. He loves the selection of beers.

Annual trip to New England means stopping in Salem Beer Works. Never disappointed. Food is great, beer is great. Leaves you wanting for nothing except more time and more room in your stomach for more of their delicious food! Will always come back!
