True North Ale Company
Breweries & Distilleries
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 coastal communities.
Founded by the father and son team of Gary and Jake Rogers, True North Ales has a unique perspective on brewing beer with a multi-generational group of family and friends working together to produce 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.
Voted Best Brewery on The North Shore four years running by the readers of North Shore Magazine, True North Ales has earned major international accolades, including a Gold Award at the 2018 World Beer Cup, a Gold and a Bronze Medal at the 2021 Great American Beer Fest (GABF) and a Silver Medal at the 2020 GABF. Newly built and opened in the fall of 2017, the brewery Taproom offers a welcoming environment to thirsty locals and out-of-town visitors, and a gathering place for business and community groups. The North Side event space is available for large and small group gatherings up to 250 guests, ranging from fundraisers to corporate meetings to weddings. Our beers will also be found in bars, restaurants, and on store shelves throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire.
