About True North Ale Company

The True North Ale Company is located on Boston’s North Shore in historic Ipswich, Massachusetts. The word “True” of True North Ales has special meaning to us and reflects our core values of integrity and honesty in all that we do. “North” refers to Boston’s North Shore, our home. And “True North” reflects the nautical and maritime heritage of Ipswich and the surrounding communities. 

True North Ales has a unique perspective on brewing beer with a multi-generational group of family and friends working together to produce some highly creative craft beers. Our team is excited to be brewing juicy American IPAs, sophisticated Belgian ales, classic German lagers, cutting-edge sours, and many more traditional and experimental styles.

Newly built and opened in the fall of 2017, the brewery boasts a 15,000 square foot facility with state-of-the-art brewing equipment, a high-speed canning line, and on-site taproom and patio. Our taproom offers a welcoming environment to thirsty locals and out-of-town visitors, and a gathering place for business and community groups.

The taproom serves pints and flights of the True North Ale Company core brands, as well as batches found exclusively at the brewery. Growler fills and packs of cans are available for retail take-away from the taproom. Our beers will also be found in bars, restaurants, and on store shelves throughout the region.
