It all began 50 years ago on February 26, 1971, in a tavern known as the Ram Pub located in the Villa Plaza shopping center in Lakewood, Washington. When our 29 & 30-year-old founders opened a “Deluxe Tavern” in 1971, they probably never imagined their company as a full-service restaurant and brewing business in 2021. Cal Chandler and Jeff Iverson, friends, fraternity brothers, and football teammates at the University of Washington, decided to make a go of it serving warm pub food and cold beer. Part of their motivation was their shared experience working at Shakey’s Pizza Parlor in college.

In September 1995, they opened our first brewery in Salem. The Great American Beer Festival happened two months after the Salem brewery began production. They entered a porter and, amazingly, it won the Gold Medal! First entry and a gold medal! This started a continuing trend of medal winning beers. The brewer who made that porter had given it the name Total Disorder Porter.

“Bigger, Better, Fresher” is more than a slogan at the Ram; it is our promise. Our focus on quality, consistency and drinkability has been rewarded over the years with guest loyalty and industry recognition having been awarded numerous medals including accolades from the Great American Beer Festival, World Beer Cup and prestigious State Competitions. We also were recognized by The GABF for being the Brewery of The Year!

The perfect harmony of award-winning ales and lagers coupled with great menu items that are transformed into delicious beer infused creations. A new experience found on every plate, pint, growler and keg. Award-winning burgers, featuring our newest introduction-The Prime Burger, made from Black Angus prime tenderloin, ribeye and filet-truly remarkable flavor and taste.

For food that’s too good to be true (and service that is nothing short of fabulous), The RAM – Rosemont in Rosemont serves up tantalizing tastes of the very best.
