Mercury Brewing to release first 20 cases of its Imperial Stout
Happy New Year from your friends at Mercury Brewing Company!
2008 proved to be another solid year at the brewery. Beer production once again topped 14,000 barrels, while soda production stayed consistent at over 1,000 barrels brewed.
With 2009 already underway, we are excited to announce some of the new projects and growth that we have in store.
2009 marks the 375th Anniversary of the town of Ipswich. As part of the festivities, Mercury Brewing will be releasing, in limited quantity, 1.5 liter bottles of strong ales. The first in the series will be the Ipswich Imperial Stout.
The first 20 cases, or 80 1.5L bottles of the Imperial Stout will be sold right out of the brewery on a first come, first serve basis.
Join us at the brewery located at 23 Hayward Street on Saturday January 17th from 11am to 3pm to buy one of the first bottles off of the line!
Keep an eye on our first ever Ipswich Ale Brewery Blog, as we hope to begin construction on the new brewery in early 2009. The blog will contain pictures, updates, and progress as soon as construction gets underway.
We also encourage fans of Ipswich Ale to join our Facebook Fan Page. This site is updated weekly with company happenings.
