Finally visited the long-awaited brew pub in Ipswich. Cool look inside and out, with exposed brick, mini-bus behind the angled bar, windows into the brewery, classic rock piped in, etc. A dozen beers on tap, including a few you supposedly can't get anywhere else. Service was fine. Didn't eat, but the food smelled good.

As Ipswich has brewed many of my favorite beers for many years, I've visited the brewery (old and new) many times. The release events were always low-key and they were very generous with the beer. Today was my first visit to the Brewer's Table, the new brewpub. It looks amazing, very nicely done, the trademark tap-truck is the behind-the-bar beer engine. Windows into the heart of the brewery are everywhere.

15 brews on draft. Started with a special brews flight: Pilsner, iBelge, Revival & Dry Irish Stout, (4/$8) I had never tried. All were very good. Followed with a Smoked Helles and an Original Ale. Pints are $5/16oz. The burger was great, a nice salad was substituted for fries. And the service was excellent.

Took quite a while to get this operation in motion, but it was worth the wait.
