Essex County Brewing Company


Peabody’s first nano brewery launched in 2018 with the goal of creating the highest quality beers possible. While the list changes frequently, expect to find several New England–style IPAs, alongside anything from a French saison to an American stout. To-go cans are a popular option if you can’t linger in the welcoming taproom.

True North Ale Company


National accolades poured in almost from this brewery’s first release, with their Vincianne Belgian Blonde Ale taking the Gold Award at the 2018 World Beer Cup. Pick up cans of that and other core brands around the North Shore, or visit the 15,000-square-foot facility, kitted out with state-of-the-art brewing equipment, a high-speed canning line, and a taproom, for special releases.
