Overview

Shipyard Brewing Company is a family owned brewery - rooted in tradition and brimming with innovation. Our award-winning beer is handcrafted by our team of brewers who learned their art from world-renowned master brewer, Alan Pugsley. We are committed to cultivating a new generation of creative, passionate brewers. Our team is constantly exploring innovative and diverse styles of beer through our pilot system at our Portland brewery and our 7-barrel system at Federal Jack's Brew Pub in Kennebunk Harbor. Established in 1994, this family-run brewery set up shop in what was once a maritime foundry on the waterfront of Portland. Starting with our flagship Export Ale, we've produced over 65 handcrafted, traditional beers in the heart of this vibrant Maine community.

I am no beer connoisseur for sure, but I loved this stop. The Melon —watermelon wheat ale and the Sunfish with peach and grapefruit satisfied me! Hey I’m a Georgia gal-what can I say??? Great atmosphere and great beer.

Our afternoon of beer tasting ended at Shipyard Brewing Company saving the best for last! Shipyard offered by far the most variety of beer styles in a laid back atmosphere! A "must" on the craft beer trail.......

Stopped here for lunch while passing through the area. Service was poor, food was overpriced in my opinion. The beer was fine, however as mentioned before service was below standard, once again my opinion.

We enjoyed our lunch at the airport location. It was very clean and the service was prompt. Our sandwiches were quite good but I'd skip the chips. The burger and caprese sandwich were quite tasty.

We brought our 2 year old with us on our visit - didn't try the tour, but had a nice time in the tasting room. They even have a soda tasting that might be fun for your daughter!
