Seven Brides Brewing has a very interesting and unique history. There was dearth of breweries in the quaint city of Silverton and hence few friends got together and brewed beers in their backyard. The quality of these home made brews was excellent and the group thought of marketing it. Out of the five partners, three had daughters and they needed funds for their kids marriages and other expenses, hence they started the venture and named it Seven Brides Brewing. They even have beers named after each girl, for instance Emily's Ember and Maggie's Marzen. You can savor these flavorful libations at the brewery's tap room located at the First Street. And, it serves delicious treats and snacks too that perfectly complement the chilled beers. For tours and special events, call ahead.
