Wow this place is a total hidden gem. When I saw and empty bottle of Isebella Proximus promentently displayed behind the bar I know this place was gonna be good.
Great beer list. About 20 taps none of which are macro beers. Mostly a American beers but a few rare Belgians on tap.
I went with two buddies and we had the following beers:
Nugget Nectar (ON CASK!!!)
Mad Bitch De Dolle
Haverill Black IPA
Lou Pepe Kriek 2008
Quite a selection indeed. They actually had 2 vintages of the LP Kriek 2007 and 2008! Wow.
The food was great too. Had some Corn Lobster and Crab cakes which were great. My burger was cooked to order perfectly.
I noticed that the had an Allagash dinner coming up and in looking at the food and beer pairing and it looked like a top knotch event.
I am pretty far from this place so I don't know how often I will get back here but I would highly reccomend this place. The best beer bar I have ever been to on the North Shore for sure.
As good as any of the big well known Boston beer geek bars only out in the burbs.

I had heard so many great things about the Ale House that I just had to pay it a visit. My girlfriend and I went for the beer selection and got exactly what we had expected. A lot of taps with great choices for each of them. The bartenders were knowledgeable about each one and offered their recommendations and gave the correct glassware for each beer. Their service was just alright, nothing exemplary or anything. One of them was just one of those employees that didn't seem as if he wanted to be there but luckily it was at the end of his shift and the new bartender was better and I felt we were taken care of.
The food was really good but nothing outstanding. They are more known for their tap selection than their food so my expectations were pretty middle of the road. I got the haddock sandwich which was good and I loved their fries. I forget what my girlfriend ordered but they allowed her to substitute the fries with their fried pickle chips which made her day. She really enjoyed her meal.
Even though this place is about 45 minutes away from me and I can't get there too often, I will be paying them another visit in the near future. Really great place, nice and clean with a good amount of space. Definitely worth going again.

Oh Amesbury Ale House, how things have changed.
Prices used to be downright reasonable for the area. In the last year they've crept into Boston Beer Bar territory. $7.50/pint for Nugget Nectar and Green Flash WC IPA? Also, all beers are served at one temperature (COLD) and casks are left on for far too long (6+ days in some instances).
Food used to be more hit than miss, last few times have been a definite miss all around. Burgers overcooked and dry. Flavorless short rib.
The service has always been suspect, especially when busy, lately it's been worse.
In the area, it's a great spot to hit for a beer and conversation, but I no longer go out of my way to stop in.
