What is Noble Wave?
Noble Wave is a little food and beverage company (currently), with big aspirations (always).
We’re looking to open a brewery, restaurant, and bar (a ‘brewpub’), in Salem, Oregon. This will be Noble Wave’s first brick-and-mortar location and hopefully it’ll be open by the end of 2018.
While we are on the hunt for a location for the brick-and-mortar operation, we currently operate a ‘mobile kitchen’ at a few locations around Salem. (The ‘mobile kitchen’ is, essentially, a tricked out hot dog cart we’ve outfitted with substantially more cooking firepower.)
Where are you located?
Salem, Oregon. (Although the Noble Wave concept was originally developed in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.)
Are you open yet?
Yes! Well, sort of.
Our mobile kitchen is fully operational and you can find it all over Salem throughout the week. Its schedule is posted here on our website but the easiest way to keep track of the mobile kitchen’s whereabouts are to follow us on Instagram and Facebook, where we post the updated schedule weekly.
Our brewpub is not yet open - we’re currently on the hunt for a location and are aiming to open by the end of 2018.
What’s a brewpub?
A bar and restaurant that brews its own beer. We’ll brew and store our beer on site. We’ll also have a kitchen producing a full menu of food. You’ll be able to consume it all fresh on-site.
What kind of food do you serve?
Via our mobile kitchen, we’re currently serving cheeseburgers, authentic Louisiana poboy sandwiches, a variety of fried seafood dinners, and fried appetizers like hush puppies and fried pickles. We’ve also got a pretty cool adaptation of 'beignets’ for dessert. You can actually check out our entire current menu right here.
Once we get our brick-and-mortar brewpub location up and running, we’ll be able to expand our food offerings considerably. Adding Louisiana staples like jambalaya, gumbo, and red beans and rice, as well as Southern classics. We’ll also add a number of salads, sandwiches and entrees featuring grilled proteins, and additional vegetarian and vegan options.
What kind of beers do you brew?
We’re looking to offer 12+ Noble Wave beers on tap at any given time, representing a variety of tastes and styles.
We’re all big fans of hoppy beers so there will definitely be an emphasis there. West Coast, New England, we like them all. But we’ll also have some darker and more malty beers – we have a great milk stout that we’re planning to serve as one of our year-round flagships. And then other traditional styles like a light American pilsner as well as trendier styles like a hazy American wheat ale where we experiment with various fruit adjuncts depending on what’s in season. We’re really excited be in the Willamette Valley and have the opportunity to feature some of the great crops that are grown nearby, from fresh hops to adjuncts like fruits and nuts.
We’ve got nearly ten years of homebrewing experience and worked with some professional brewers back in Louisiana to develop recipes. We’ll also be adding a full-time experienced head brewer to our team.
Are you going to serve any beverages other than Noble Wave beer?
Totally. A lot of great Oregon wines by the bottle and on-tap for glass and carafe fills. Some local ciders and kombucha. Soda. We’ll feature some of our favorite beers on tap from other breweries. And depending on our location, we might also consider serving cocktails and other spirits.
I have additional questions or comments. How can I contact you?
