Review: Ipswich Ale Brewery Pumpnickel Rye Porter

Going local – it’s a trendy theme going around the beer industry these days and for good reason. Sourcing local ingredients has its benefits. It adds a unique regional flavor to specialty beer offerings and gives the brewer a chance to tell a compelling story when selling in to retailers. Ipswich Ale Brewery introduced a new lineup at the end of last year that uses at least one ingredient grown within 5 miles of Ipswich and 50 percent Massachusetts grown ingredients.
