We might be biased, but if you’re planning on visiting the North Shore, Amesbury is a non-negotiable must-do.

One of the reasons we love living here so much, and a major driving force behind starting Bryony & Birch, is the number of brewers, bakers, makers and shakers that call this beautiful pocket of Massachusetts home.

It doesn’t matter if you’re looking for craft beer, chocolate or a coconut lime margarita, the below five local spots have you covered!

Scroll down to discover the best places to eat and drink in Amesbury.

The North Shore’s Best Food & Drinks

Brewery Silvaticus

As lovers of craft beer, we often have to remind our hearts to be still when we walk into Silvaticus. Owned by the Head Brewer, Jay Bullen, you’ll find brews such as Classic Bavarian Hefeweizens, hoppy lagers and, of course, their award-winning sour ale.

Open Wednesday to Sunday, they have a fantastic taproom for tastings and an epic beer garden overlooking the Powow River. You can stick around for delicious food and a refreshing pint or fill up a growler (or two) to-go!

Be sure to check out the Silvaticus Events Calendar because they often host run clubs, yoga classes and even Makers Markets.
