I had a far better experience here than at Allagash. Great selection of taps (PUMPKIN BEERRR) and nice service. The gift shop was also pretty cool and left with a few good things. Only wish it closed later.

We went for a beer flight. The prices are decent and the staff were friendly. The beer is good, but not the absolute best.

This was not on the itinerary but sure am glad I stopped by. These folks know how to make good beer. The blueberry aged in bourbon barrels is good stuff. It was packed the day I visited. Will definitely stop by on the next trip!

Shipyard has beer tastings, tours, and a gift shop. Very friendly employees! $6/flight of 4 beers. 14 choices! Also available are flights of sodas for $1. We enjoyed all of the beers.
