Silverton, Oregon has much to offer. Known for its beautiful landscape of Silver Falls State Park and home of the Oregon Garden, it is rich with color and flavor. The town is lined with antique and coffee shops, restaurants and murals, but no micro-breweries, until now.
Seven Brides Brewing is changing that aspect.
Several years ago, three dads and two uncles would gather on a Saturday in one of their garages to master the art of home brew. Before long, the salesman of the group said, “You know, this is good enough to sell.” So the friends set out to do just that.
The name “Seven Brides” actually came from the dads’ kids. Between the three of them, they have only daughters. With the rising cost of wedding nuptials, the guys decided they needed to sell enough beer to pay for their daughters weddings. Each of the girls has a beer named after her.
With five business partners, each of the guys brings an important element to the company.
Josiah Kelley is president of the company, bringing many talents with him.
He is a custom fabricator, physical plant engineer,
and is able to step in wherever needed.
Josiah and his wife have three of the Seven Brides.
