Ipswich Ale Brewery


One of the oldest craft breweries in New England known for its award-winning flavor

Ipswich Ale Brewing has more than twenty-five years of history behind it, first introducing its brews to the residents of Massachusetts in the Spring of 1991. Today, Ipswich stands as one of the oldest craft breweries in New England with a portfolio of classically styled beers that have become quite the local tradition.

Ipswich Ales are unique in that they are produced completely unfiltered and unpasteurized. This natural brewing style results in beers that maintain a greater level of freshness, mouth feel, and full flavor - it’s no wonder Ipswich has been awarded an astounding number of medals, including having their Original Pale Ale ranked among the World’s Ten Best Beers in Wine Spectator magazine.

Brewery President Rob Martin is thrilled with the recognition and success Ipswich Ales has garnered, and looks forward to further growth in the future. Martin has been behind the Ipswich brand since 1995 when he began as an employee of the original owners; brewing, running the bottling line, driving the delivery truck, and doing just about anything else he was called upon to do. He enjoyed the company so much that he bought the business in 1999 and has built the craft brewery into the hugely successful entity it is today.

Working with Head Brewer Tom Villa, Martin oversees the production of his distinctive New England beers and shares a great deal of pride - both in the effort that goes into making the, and bring them to market.

Recently, Ipswich Ale Brewery opened an on-site restaurant named the Ipswich Brewer’s Table, which features 15 tap lines and a diverse menu with a mix of food offerings ranging from brewpub to New American cuisine.

This month, we are happy to offer Ipswich’s Route 101 West Coast IPA and Dry Irish Stout, a pair of Ipswich Ale favorites. Enjoy!
