This was a great place to visit and have some local brew. Took a free tasting but skipped the tour, since it was so long. Also took some brew home!

My husband and I recently drove up from Boston for the Brew Vacation and had a blast! We spent the first day brewing beer in the birthplace of Shipyard and a) yes they literally brew by hand as we can attest to and b) they let you do as much and get as dirty as you like! We actually brewed... More

A group of 5 of us traveled to Portland, Maine for the weekend to celebrate a friends birthday. I love myself some shipyard so we started at the Shipyard Brewery. The movie they start was really cool and the tasting afterwards was really informative. The guy there was awesome! Very nice and took care of the birthday girl. My favorite... More

Really nice guy and showed us the production area as well (they were actually making soda that day) Very... More

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
