Residents of Boston’s North Shore were first introduced to Ipswich Ale during the spring of 1991. With over 27 years of history behind it, Ipswich Ale has been in existence longer than nearly every other craft brewer in New England. Since that time, the Ipswich Ale portfolio of brands have developed into a tradition shared by not only the residents of eastern Massachusetts, but across New England. In January of 2016, the Ipswich Ale Brewery opened their onsite restaurant the Ipswich Ale Brewer’s Table, which features 15 tap lines and a diverse menu with a mix of tastes ranging from brewpub to New American cuisine.


They are known for great tasting all-natural beers for people who love music and the great outdoors. Chris Webb and Bill Fisher founded the brewery in 2012. As the first brewery to can their entire line of beers in Massachusetts, NBC became one of the top 10 fastest growing breweries since prohibition in year one. After four years, they are a top 10 brewery in MA and top 250 in the country. The brewery features a tap room in Newburyport, live music, and multiple great-tasting beers sold across the region!
