Our first stop in Portland was Shipyard and was it a great choice! Even though they don't have tours of their brew house, they do have free tastings of their beers! Shipyard also sells growlers that you can fill up and take home so you can have brewery fresh beer with friends and family!

It was my first time at the Shipyard and i was pleased with the service and food. Great choice of beers and craft beers. Great choice for appetizers as well. My burger was quality meat and was fresh and tasty as hell.

This was my first visit to Shipyard. It was alot of fun. The staff was friendly and informative about the beers. Samples are free by the way. The apparel and items in the gift shop are affordable as well

We rushed to make sure we made it to this location before closing because friends of ours had been and enjoyed it. We made it with a half an hour to spare! We had a fantastic free tasting. The staff was very friendly and would let you try whatever you want. There is a large store that has everything Shipyard.... More

The brewery is located at the eastern edge of the waterfront area. Very nondescript building. Not impressive. That is until you enter the store. Once onside they have a well done bar area with free samples. They also have a nicely done gift shop with reasonably priced tees, sweats, beer and accessories. Cool place.

Nice store with lots of items to choose from. We saw the video, very informative. We had a tasting after the video. The gentleman who did the tasting was very informative. He provided a nice sequence in the tasting. Became a fan of this brewery after the tasting.

A great tasting room with plentiful options for every beer lover. Friendly staff to answer questions and let you try whatever you'd like. Easy walking distance from most of Portland. We didn't do the tour, so I cannot comment on that.

So many beers to sample and they were all good from pumpkin ale to chocolate stout. Our server was amazingly efficient getting samples for all the people in the tasting room. And she was extremely informative although a very fast talker, so one needs to listen up. And, one may request seconds. The gift shop has a huge variety from... More
