The long-awaited second location of Salem-based Notch Brewing is now open at the Charles River Speedway!
The new taproom occupies a 3,766 sf former horse stable, from when the Speedway was a racing complex. Where possible, elements from around the site were salvaged and integrated into the Notch space. Reclaimed beams and trusses were turned into standing top tables in the bar area, and you can find old horse rings mounted to the bar. Timber from demolition at the Salem location was used to face the bar and repurposed into tables and benches.
Outside, visitors can enjoy a massive 2,000 sf year-round beer garden to drink, gather, and/or distance.
