The West Salem Brew Coffee & Tap House has closed after almost four years in the space.
Owners Cathy and Mitch Teal announced the closure of the combined cafe and taphouse on the business’ Facebook page. They cited familial obligations, including caring for their twins and parents, for closing the location.
Their location in Independence remains open.
“Simplifying our lives was a necessary move,” they wrote. “We have made so many friends at our West Salem Brew location over the past 3 1/2 years, so this move is very bittersweet.”
The location served coffee, cocktails, beer, cider and an array of snacks. It also had spacious, dog-friendly outdoor seating and unique speakeasy interior décor.
In the same post, the Teals announced there will be a new local family taking over the space and “running with what (the Teals) have started.”
There were no additional details of what was to come. The Teals did not respond to requests from the Statesman Journal for comment.
