On my way back home to Albany
after taking care of some business in Silverton,
I swung through Salem
to continue my McMenamins Passport adventure,
enjoy some good food and drink, and get a few more Passport stamps.
My first stop was downtown at McMenamins’ Boon’s Treasury
pub. It was built by John D. Boon, Oregon’s first state treasurer,
in 1860 as the capitol city’s second general store, where he conducted both state and store business inside its brick walls.
The next destination on my McMenamins Passport adventure was Thompson Brewery and Public House,
located 3.3 miles south of Boon’s Treasury on the same Liberty Road in south Salem.
I took 18 pictures during my short outing in Salem; the best 9 on on display in this tiny album. I think I’m going to really like this McMenamins Passport adventure! Good food, good drinks, good rewards, and most important of all, good photo ops!
