Residents of Boston’s North Shore were first introduced to Ipswich Ale during the spring of 1991. With 25 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.

Here's what people say after redeeming their Nift gift.

John and Roy were great tour guides. Lots of information was provided. Great tasting beers. We don't drink IPA's, but theirs was very good. We will definitely be back. I would highly (5) recommend this brewery.

One of, if not the best brewery tour we have ever been on, and the food was great as well!

Nate is great! I've done this tour twice because my friend had a Nift as well. But I was so excited to do it again. The info received during the tour gives beer drinkers a detailed background in how the products are made. Along with that, the beer you drink during the tour equates a tall glass if not more! I don't know how you can complain about that. Nate himself is very informative. He also doesn't get annoyed with all the questions asked. The conversation is very fluid and fun. #nateisgreat

I haven't done many brewery tours but this one definitely knocked the others out of the park. Out tour guide Nate was absolutely fabulous. We started the tour off with some tasty drinks and an in-depth history of the brewery and brewing beer. Nate was patient and informative and didn't mind the multitude of questions we had. I'm definitely going to be a larger purchaser of Ipswich beer now.
