From Notch Brewery’s web site:
“Launched in 2010 by Chris Lohring, Notch Brewing was the first brewing company in the U.S. to focus exclusively on Session Beer. At the time, we simply wanted to brew the beers we loved to drink, and finding them was a challenge. Being a professional brewer since 1993, Chris knew that session beer had been enjoyed in every great beer brewing nation for centuries, yet in the U.S. it was overlooked. So he set out to brew the world’s classic session styles from England, the Czech Republic, Germany and Belgium, as well as explore how session beer could fit with the U.S.’s hoppy beer infatuation. Six years later, you are sitting in a brewery that was built on the back of session beer. It’s proven one thing, that beer consumers like options, and session beer is a great one.”

From Bit Bar’s web site:
“There is something exhilarating about finding one of these machines forgotten in a basement or barn, you can clearly see the 35 years of both love and abuse. The feeling you get when it lights up for the first time after years of neglect is hard to explain. The knowledge and parts needed to fix them are quickly becoming part of a bygone era. However, it is clear that as a culture, we have a deep emotional attachment to these games and groups of passionate people have sprung up to keep them a playable part of our shared history.This entire time we have had our eye on opening a permanent arcade restaurant and bar. A place where friends can gather to play the classics, grab a craft local beer and delicious food. Arcade bars are a proven concept nationally but something that the greater Boston area has been missing. We aim to put our own stamp on this concept by sharing our love for the art, music, and culture of classic games. We also are looking for ways of connecting with the heirs of this legacy, independent game developers, with a dedicated space for them to exhibit and special events for presentations of new creations.Building on Bit Fest’s overwhelming success and the excitement and encouragement of our amazing supporters, the Bit Fest team is thrilled to now bring to Salem—greater Boston area’s very first Bar-Arcade—Bit Bar!”
