The f/stop Fitzgerald - A Gem in Salem

I've been meaning to write this post for the last week, but life got a little busy and time got away from me.

Salem's teeny, tiny, cozy little pub with the great patio had it's one year anniversary this month. Yay for f/stop Fitzgerald! It is a wonderful and welcome addition to Salem's beer and cider scene. They now have eight beer and cider taps and have a great selection of local brews. Plus, its where all the cool kids hang out.

If you've never been to f/stop, you should really make it a goal to get there and check out the laid back, cozy atmosphere with a friend, a group, or just by yourself. People are friendly and welcoming in this little establishment and on most evenings you will find a fire out in the firepit on the patio.

The f/stop is a little off the beaten path, but that's part of what makes it so neat. It is a neighborhood pub, north of downtown, smack dab in the middle of a neighborhood and an industrial area. It's in an old house, so it fits right in and its hardly noticeable unless there are a load of people drinking around the firepit outside.

It's a destination pub, if you don't happen to live in the neighborhood, but, in my oh-so-humble opinion, it hovers right up there at the top of the best places to hang out in Salem, Oregon.

So, check it out. Just don't steal my seat by the firepit!

f/stop hours: Wednesday through Sunday 4:00-Whenever people wander home (11 or 12ish or later if its busy)
Location: 335 Grove St NE Salem, OR 97301

I've wondered about this place every time I pass by it! NOW I know, and I can't wait to go.
