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!

We stopped in on 9/25 to check additions for our hat/Tshirt collections. We've toured breweries before, many..., so another tour wasn't desired. great girls in the shop, very attentive and helpful. Found some great prints on the Tees and Sweats. Snagged a Portland Head Light hat and a pumpkinhead Tee for Halloween. A nice stop.

We stopped by the Shipyard Brewery on a day when there was no full guided tour. Instead, we watched the short informational describing the company and its products. It was a well made video, and I found it more interesting than a tour of the facility. We have visited several breweries before, so we were aware of the general process.... More

They have a great store with all their wears. The tour is a little lacking, but great beer tastings afterward. The staff is all very friendly and helpful.

Visited Portland for an overnight to tour some local breweries, Shipyard's location is fantastic and very quaint inside. Lots of merchandise, great tour, and awesome tastings. Their Pumpkinhead is one of my favorite pumpkin beers, and we got to try a bourbon barrel pumpkin that was decadent! Well worth a stop if you're in the area.
