Ipswich Ale's brew pub opening set for Nov. 1

IPSWICH — Ipswich Ale’s long-discussed plan to open a brew pub downtown has stirred a lot of interest over the years. Now, it seems about to become a reality.

Rob Martin, president and owner of Ipswich Ale, said a restaurant partner has been hired, and the pub is expected to open by Nov. 1.

He said the restaurant will have about 120 seats, but an architect is still drawing up plans. The space will offer nearly panoramic views of the production inside the brewery. The space is ready for construction to start once the plans are finalized.

“They will be able to look out and see what is going on,” Martin said. “They will be able to see the whole operation.”

As for the food, Martin said the restaurant will offer fare more “higher end” than a typical pub.

“Everything that goes well with our beer,” he said of the menu.

For drinks, the pub will offer all the beers brewed in the facility, including about eight different microbrews that are produced there.

“I think Ipswich Ale, especially on the North Shore, has become a favorite local brewer that people feel a sense of pride when they are drinking,” Martin said.

Steve Argersinger, president of the Ipswich Chamber of Commerce, said the new brew pub will be a boost to the downtown and help draw newcomers to town.
