PRESS RELEASE / February 1, 2019 (Ipswich, MA) – Following a growing national trend of craft brewery mergers, Ipswich Ale Brewery is proud to announce its partnership with the Newburyport Brewing Company. The partnership will allow both breweries to maintain separate product portfolios, taproom spaces, and events while utilizing shared resources for production, sales, and marketing.
“We’re extremely excited about our new partnership with Newburyport Brewing – in a very short time the brewery has become an iconic New England brand, and we’re pleased to be able to help them meet their production goals,” said Ipswich Ale Brewery President, Rob Martin. “This relationship is also great for us, it enables us to utilize their 7-barrel system to innovate and experiment within our own product line.”
“Working together to bring world-class beer to the market will now be both more efficient and more fun,” said Chris Webb, Co-Founder and CEO of Newburyport Brewing. “We are currently building a new brewery on the oldest farm in the industrial park in Newburyport. Our vision is to create an amazing destination brewery that will combine our love of music with the ability to innovate and brew small batch beers.”
Newburyport Brewing Company will begin production at the Ipswich brewing facility on February 4, 2019.
Residents of Boston’s North Shore were first introduced to Ipswich Ale during the spring of 1991. With more than 25 years of history behind it, Ipswich Ale Brewery’s portfolio of beers 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 an onsite restaurant, the Ipswich Ale Brewer’s Table, which features 15 tap lines of Ipswich beers and an eclectic lunch and dinner menu.
