This is a must-see in Portland. I'm used to a local brewery near me that offers full walking tours of a large plant, so this was a much smaller scale, but they have a movie that shows what you're not able to see in the one room they let you visit. For a small brewery, they do a great job,... More

I just had to stop here on my visit to Portland with my wife. I was on a hunt for beer swag...Shipyard being one of my favorite breweries. The store staff was fun and friendly, how could you NOT be? Any ways, lots of things to buy! Couldn't make the tour, but wanted to! Beer lovers unite!

They advertise tours 11-5 daily. No mention of having to sign up in advance. We got there about 5 minutes before the next scheduled tour and were told we had to sign up. Then we were told the tour was full and we could sign up for the next tour in an hour. When we declined and stated we did... More

We went here for the tour and was not disappointed. After a quick Video, the tour guide took us to the BAR where we tasted a lot of different beers. She explained how they are brewed and when they are brewed. it was very informative. It also made me realize how much I like Corona Beer!. But everyone was friendly... More

Free! If you want a full tour they only offer them on Tuesday and Thursday, and you have to book online from their website. Do it early, because the fill up quickly. We didn't get to do the full tour, but we went for the short tour and tasting. Youcan go there every hour not the hour for a short... More

I loved the tour of the brewery. The guy who led it had serious personality, was funny, and kept us interested. It didn't hurt that they provide a free tasting of their beers on tap after the tour. We enjoyed ourselves thoroughly and left after purchasing far too much beer.

The tour isn't the greatest, but it gives you a company history and some interesting facts about Shipyard. The best part of course is the sampling. You get to sample a bunch of different beers. On both tours we've ended up buying some of what we've sampled.
