I am not a fan of flavoring.. whether it is Beer or coffee or Potato chips. Plain is ok..All these things don't need. Added flavor. Flavoring hides or masks the true taste. Good or bad. My perception of Shipyard is the beer passes all tests, naturally. And flavoring it enhances this product. Very few Breweries can achieve such world class... More

This is a very fun place to do a free tasting and grab some beers to take home. There is no tour per se but there is a video tour you watch and after you get to do a tasting. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable.

Whenever we stay up in Portland we usually stay at the Marriott next door, So we have taken this tour 3-4 times. (Shipyard Export is one of my favorite beers so no complaints by me) The tour is just "Ok" Most of it is watching a video of the history of the company and then you go downstairs to see... More

Enjoyed the history of Shipyard & Sea Dog Brewing. The staff was fantastic even though it was 10 in the morning. They were all drinking coffee and we all wanted to taste beer. Shipyard in Portland is open 24 hours a day to help keep up with demand. They are located on the site where American Poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow... More

This is our 2nd visit to Shipyard Brewing Co. and we enjoyed it as much as the first visit. Beer tasting and explanation of the different beers was great and as always, we took a few cases home to Philadelphia with us. Great place to visit!

The place itself is small and off the main street. It has a very small parking area. The tours are virtual only and were all booked up because a cruise ship was in town. They offer many things to buy and you can sample the beers. I would return when there was less people so I could take the tour... More

It's all about the beer- of course it's good ... Like Norm from Cheers said,"I never met a beer I didn't like"... Seasonal pumpkin beer is great...

This was a great stop we watched a very short video then got to try every beer they had on tap for free. The guide explained each beer and really enjoyed her job! Good prices on growlers as well!
