Ipswich Summer Ale & Upcoming Events
Beer & Food Pairings: Ipswich Summer Ale
With such a wide range of flavors and aromas, you can pair beer with food just as wine aficionados have been doing for years. Our Summer Ale, an unfiltered Blonde ale that still retains a subtle hop flavor, goes great with lighter summer foods like chicken, Salmon, and salads.
Don’t forget to take advantage of the summer harvest! Pick up some fresh veggies at your local farm stand, mix in some shrimp or chicken for delicious barbecue skewers, and you will have the perfect meal to go with Ipswich Summer Ale.
