Mass. breweries and their top beers
Mercury Brewing Co.
Top beer: Ipswich Ale
The Mercury Brewing Co. was founded in 1991 by Jim Beauvais and Paul Silva. Owned by Rob Martin since 1999, the brewing company now distributes Ipswich, Stone Cat, Cisco Brewers of Nantucket, and other beers. The most popular remains the original Ipswich Ale, which operations manager James Borau called, "a beer for all kinds of people."
"Its a rather dry ale with a little hint of fruitiness to it from the yeast. Its just a great all around American style pale ale," he said.
