Ipswich, MA – Here in Ipswich we’re lucky to be surrounded by beautiful landscapes. It’s only natural that a town known for its plentiful outdoor recreational activities has a bustling brewery providing a refreshing end to a long day spent on the trail or on the water. “Protecting our water supply is protecting our beer. We take these things seriously,” says owner Rob Martin.
In celebration of Ipswich Ale’s 25th Anniversary we are pleased to present Ipswich Riverbend Pils, an easy drinking, refreshing Pilsner. We take proper German malt, traditional Czech Saaz hops and add a touch of Lemondrop hops for a bright aroma. A true American Pilsner, we use a touch of flaked maize much like our brewing forefathers had to do when they discovered American barley was too high in protein to replicate the pale pilsner styles coming out of Europe in the 1800’s. This clean, pale lager will be available in limited release 22oz bottles and draft throughout the summer.
A portion of the sales of Ipswich Riverbend Pils will be donated to the Ipswich River Watershed Association. The river system that the Ipswich River is a part of is the source of drinking water for more than 330,000 people in 14 communities – one of the most important natural resources in Massachusetts. Ipswich River Watershed works to protect nature and make sure that there is enough clean water for people, fish and wildlife, today and for our children and theirs.
A release party for the new beer will be held at the Ipswich Ale Brewer’s Table restaurant on Monday, April 11th from 5:30-7:30. The beer will be available on draft and for purchase in 22 ounce bottles. Brewery staff and Ipswich River Watershed Association representatives will raise a pint together and be available for questions.
About Ipswich Ale Brewery:
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 MA, 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.
