A really nice brewery to sample the many beers they make. Pumpkin is my favorite but it's not in season. Nice gift shop and store. My wife loved the cream soda.

As a big fan of Shipyard, I stopped in on my visit to Portland. I did a sampling and found new beers I enjoyed. I also was able to purchase souvenirs and Christmas presents. Staff were friendly and helpful.

This was a great final stop on our visit to Portland. Don't miss it. Perhaps I'm overthinking it, but I swear their beer tastes even better there than at home. We visited while we were waiting for a table at Eventide. It's an easy walk.

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!
