Stopped here while in town to try the numerous beers on tap. The staff was helpful suggesting beers I might enjoy. I was pleasantly surprised with a tea berry brew special they had on tap. Would have bought if bottled. Their chocolate stout and blueberry stout were awesome! They also have Cap'n Eli's soda on tap for kids to try... More

Shipyard gets 5 stars if they're not located a half-mile away from anything else in the city and in a shady part of town (looks like this is improving though, based on all the construction around it). I'd have loved a brewery tour here, but the tasting hall and the gift shop are both so good that it didn't matter.... More

Came here this afternoon. Great location. I had the 4 beer tasting for $4 bucks. I had the 4 IPA s that were on tap. Nothing special though. The IPAs were just a little off. Good, but not worthy of spending money on a 6 pack.

We stopped here while walking through town. We didn't do a tour (not even sure if they offered any), but we did stop in to the their tasting bar. We got 2 flights; one with beer, and one with soda. I thought the soda was great. My husband enjoyed the different beers he tried. They have a cute gift shop,... More

We didn't do a tour (although there was one going on), we just visited the tasting room. At $4 for a flight, it was fun and affordable. Close to the downtown area. Closes early so best to go for happy hour.

Hubby and I went by Shipyard and spent a little time. The $4 flights are a good deal. This brewery is close to the wharf area. We did not go on a tour because they only do those after the brewery stops for the evening. There is a line of sodas, so the kids can have their very own flight.... More

My husband & I really enjoyed the tasting room at Shipyard! We went there to kill an hour between our Peaks Island trip & our Lobster boat tour with Lucky Catch. This was my favorite activity of the day. The guy manning the bar was so friendly and helpful! After asking what I liked (light & fruity), he recommended 4... More

Bartender was extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Easy to walk to from Old Port. Good variety of beers (In neat tasting trays). If you don't like beer, they have a wide variety of craft sodas to try. Comfortable and open seating area. Good take.

I don't drink beer because I don't like it, not because I am restricted in any way. My husband loves it though so I tag along to a lot of breweries for samples. This place is absolutely the best because you can get flights of craft soda! I was so excited to not only have something I like offered, but... More

If you have read previous reviews then you will have learned all about how you order your beer. The place is very popular and you will probably have to queue to get your beer. If it is your first visit then go for the taster tray. The chalk is on the beer cask/table just away from the bar. Check your... More
