Reading is a truly remarkable cheese. First let’s speak of its flavor. Based on the Swiss Raclette, this aged semi soft has a butter rich texture, amazing balance of sweet spice and salt, and a caramel and toasted nut flavor profile that is balanced and complete without flaw. It is made in an open copper vat in the traditional Swiss style, and is an absolute treat for those lucky enough to get a taste. Those attributes of flavor and craftsmanship are more than enough to secure it as a staple tomme of the New England cheesescape, but the aims of the cheesemakers and the unique structure of the farm where it is produced absolutely deserves recognition.

We created 5 Mile with the sole purpose of creating exceptional beers using local ingredients. 5 Mile’s mission is to use at least 50% MA ingredients while always having at least one ingredient from within 5 Miles of Ipswich.
Equinox Pale Ale was brewed with oats grown at Alprilla Farm down the road from the brewery. The oats were roasted and caramelized at Valley Malt and combined with barley from Hadley, MA. “We finished off this brew with copious amounts of Citra, Crystal and Simcoe hops, because who doesn’t enjoy a kick of hops these days?” says Head Brewer Dan Lipke.
This medium-bodied pale ale has a unique malt characteristic, and is balanced off with a citrus-like bitterness and fruity hop palate. The beer pours a hazy light amber color and goes down smooth at 4.8% ABV. We only made one batch so when it’s gone it’s gone!
