Forget barn-raising, we've got a bar-raising! The Venti's Taphouse opens later this week. The construction is wrapping up and they are elevating the standard - for themselves and for everybody else.
There's no better summer news for Salemites who love beer.
And to celebrate? We repeat a suggestion from a little over a year ago:
Brewers, someone should brew an homage to Salem beer! Beck's Bock, Adolph Doppelbock, or Klinger Kolsch beckon! Salem Beer would make a great brand, too!
Another homage that should happen: Someone should brew a doppelbock for Venti's! They're Italian, the Paulaner monks were from Italy, there are tons of puns available to them on "bock."
Even better, the German naming convention uses the suffix -ator, like Celebrator, Salvator, Optimator...so it's obvious: Salem needs a Ventilator beer!
Waiter, I need a Ventilator, stat!
So, you know...how about a Ventilator?
