Second Salem Brewing Company is a one-barrel nano-brewpub located on Cravath Lake in beautiful downtown Whitewater, Wisconsin.
In the early 20th century, locals referred Whitewater as “Second Salem” due to its reputation as a site of witch gatherings at the Witchtower (the Starin Park water tower), strange murders, unearthly creatures in the lake and other unexplained phenomena. Southeastern Wisconsin is also the historical stomping ground of the Beast of Bray Road, a werewolf-type creature that was sighted on numerous occasions in the early 1990’s and the Wild Man of La Grange, a strange character apprehended by local authorities in 1929. These events, figures and architecture are part of a collective past that makes our town unique and provides a rich variety of stories to translate into extraordinary beer. Show Less
