Wonderful experience with helpful and knowledgeable staff! Lots of beer sample choices on tap (over some other Brewery's) and they seem to be frequently changed so you can visit more often and try new things. It also doesn't hurt that the beer is amazing.

The staff was great, the beer was only ok. Staff knowledgeable of the product and generous with the pours. More of a gift shop. Did not take the tour and not sure if one was offered.

Stopped by on a whim and was greeted by awesome staff, a nice little shop, and a great tasting room. The gentleman doing the tasting was knowledgeable and did a great job.

No tour, but free tastings at the back bar. Super bartender-comedian who only adds to the experience. He'll just keep up the tastings and there are plenty to choose from. The Sunfish beer is a great summer choice but there are loads of choices for every taste. Cheers!

This place is mostly a store. There's a video about their process you can watch as well as information about their beers and awards. They have free beer tastings, and the man working the counter when I was there was knowledgeable and kind.

Stopped by and had a sampling of their beers. You could try all that you liked for free no less. They had a story and a good explanation for everything you tried. There were root beers to try for the kiddos (or adults). You can also pick up some merchandise if you please!!

This is an excellent attraction for anyone who likes beer. The tasting consisted of a total of eight different beers ranging from mild to stout. It was very hard to decide what I liked best, so I got several...

We visited the Shipyard Brewing Company on a Sunday when they were having a free tasting. We got to sample every beer on tap and take home a growler of our favorite (Sun Fish). Will was very knowledgeable about all of the different beers and definitely engaged the crowd while we were there. They also have a small shop out... More

If you enjoy craft beers this is the place for you. Shipyard Brewery is one of Maine's finest and offers a wide selection of craft beers for you to try. After your sampling the shop offers Shipyard shirts, hats, t shirts and of course your favorite beer.
