His plant was destroyed by fire in 1869 and rebuilt on a site now occupied by the municipal water office. Come 1871 and there were two breweries in Salem: the Pacific and Pioneer. Between them they supplied Salem's 13 saloons of that time and had plenty of lager for private distribution. About 20 years later (in 1889 to be exact) the town had but a single brewery, the Capital owned by Klinger and Heck. In 1885 they had ac-1 quired the site now oocupictl by today's local brewery structure j and were fulfilling needs for the ! local barrel trade as well as supplying beer for a beer bar lo-1 cated within their plant. Bulk and barreled beer were produced until 1899, the year that n small bottle shop was installed at the Klinger and Beck plant. In 1903 the plant was operated by Mrs. Beck. That year, however, she sold her interests tn the Schmidts and Kola Neis. These interests formed the Salem Hrcw-ery Association that flourished until prohibition times. May 31, 1915, Salem Brewery Assn., interdicted by prohibition, wound up its affairs in Salem and the plant later became the home of Loju, a widely advertised but not very acceptable loganberry drink. Following the repeal of prohibition Salem Brewery Assn. reincorporated in 1933. These, however, were times of adversity and many small breweries had entered into production. For various reasons the new corporation was not as successful as the old. Kmil Sick interests acquired the plant during October o( lt4:l and initiated a series of improvements that continued almost until the time the local brewery was closed about one and a half years ago. Steve Tabaechi, now owner of Valley Distributing Co., was last brewmaster in the old plant. II W . ST tell, in 5 j mm l& p vAvN?;' :.'' '. 113. II II SiiP - liliffll I A'Hii'ji''SCji REG.
