Cerveza. Comida. Cultura.
Xicha Brewing [chee-chah] [broo-ing] is a new brewery located in West Salem, Oregon. We aim to offer an inclusive, family-friendly cultural environment by creating community around high quality, fresh Latin American food and house-brewed European ales and lagers. Our goal is to honor Latin American traditions while constantly seeking out opportunities where those traditions creatively collide with new ideas.
Tuesday - Saturday: 11am to 9pm
Sunday (brunch): 9am to 9pm
As inspiration, we draw from an entire hemisphere's worth of culture, which is how we get some of out most intriguing ideas for both beer and food. We aim our beers both at craft beer drinkers who enjoy crisp flavors, and at folks seeking a cultural experience that honestly and creatively reflects a combination of tradition and modernity.
One of the most exciting parts about this project is the team that makes it work. We have Ricardo and Margarita Antunez, current owners of Pura Vida Cocina based in McMinnville. Ricardo is the chef, while Maggie is heading up the front of the house. Matt Dakopolos is our Head Brewer, and Ben Mendoza is our Business Manager. There are several others that have helped us along the way that we consider part of our team; a few of them are pictured below.
