Franklin Bottle Shop - Preview

A new bar is open downtown!

On first Wednesday Franklin's Bottle Shop had their grand opening at their location in the historic Electric Apartments on Liberty Street.



There were two beers on draft and an assortment of bottled brews.  Have patience as they launch, I think eventually they're going to have quite a selection of local and hard to find beers!

I'm not sure what their food options will ultimately be but many of the patrons had pizza from Straight From New York which is conveniently located next door.


Wednesday night they were also putting on their second weekly fun run with Gallagher Fitness.  Runs start at 7pm and there is swag for participants.

We played on a couple of nice dart boards that are set up in the back and noted that it's nice for Salem to have a new place that won't go dark at 10pm.  Go check them out!

Great place. Wonderful people - FANTASTIC customer service. My husband and I LOVE New Orleans! And one of the things that we enjoy when we are there is Dixie Beer. But, sadly we've never been able to get it here at home in Salem. My husband went into Franklin's and struck up a conversation with Nick about the beers they offered and about our love of Dixie Beer. Nick said he would see if he could order it. We got a call one week later that he had ordered it and it was already at the shop. How impressive that he was so willing to help us and really "jumped on it". Needless to say - we will frequent Franklin's Bottle Shop on a pretty regular basis. Great Beer - even better client service!

Mulligan Family, Capital Market on the corner of State and 14th carries Dixie beers, including the terrific Blackened Voodoo which we discovered last year in New Orleans. Great stuff!

Capital Market's beer storage temperatures are not always optimal--great selection, great atmosphere (if you're into retro time warp film noir slumming) but be sure you check the freshness dates. Unfortunately I've definitely had some skunked and oxidized beer from there.

Capital Market - is a really run down dirty joint. The last two times I was in, my clothes smelled like a deep fryer when I walked out.

Run down and dirty is part of its charm, if only they kept their beer colder, I would always buy my beer there.

I tried the Creme Brulee stout on draught last night. It is tasty, but $5.00 for a 12 oz. seemed a little steep.
