East Regiment Brewing Company Planning to Open Brewery and Tasting Room in Salem

Yet another new microbrewery may be on its way to the Greater Boston area, with this one looking to open on the North Shore.

According to a couple of sources, East Regiment Brewing Company is planning to open in Salem, with a Facebook post from the Salem Digest confirming this, showing that the brewery hopes to open on Church Street in the downtown section of the city. The post says that the business would include a tasting room with outdoor seating, while the brewery itself would be in the basement of the building which also includes Nick's Firehouse Coffee Shop. The note says that all existing businesses in the building (including Nick's) would remain open.

Currently, Salem is home to two breweries--Notch and Salem Beer Works--as well as a cider company called Far From The Tree.

The address for the proposed East Regiment Brewing Company is 30 Church Street, Salem, MA, 01970.

[June 25, 2019 update: According to its website and social media pages, East Regiment Brewing Company is now open.]
