We took our two year old across country and he loved this place. The beer and tap room were great. Lots of seats and options. Our 2 year old was entertained by the others kids too. Very family friendly.

We went to the tasting room, which is right behind the brewery shop. You get your own flight board and write in chalk which beers you want in the flight. We went on a snowy day so it wasn't crowded but there seemed to be a lot of tables which is good.

Our English friends had come to the states to visit. A day in Freeport is always on their list, especially at Christmas. Their daughter Georgina, had wanted to visit some breweries, so on our return home, I remembered Shipyard. It was perfect! The 5 of us ordered 4 flights and proceeded to be true tasters. We were completely relaxed and... More

Visit this Brewery every year to sample the new beers. Was very disappointed to find out that they charge for beer samples. It used to be free samples, 1 pour per tap, now they charge you $6 for a flight or $4 for a glass. Still reasonable prices, gift shop also has many interesting items to pick up. Always packed,...

The tour was okay. It was loud throughout the hour, couldn't hear the guide very well. The tasting room had plenty of great choices, my favorite was the sea dog, which is owned by Shipyard. If you want some gifts they have tons of merchandise if interested.

Shipyard Brewery was a recommended stop on our Foodie tour of Portland. From the moment we stepped into the building I could tell this was a very creative group of people. Believe it or not, Pumpkin beer was one of my favorites! If you're into craft beers try this place out.

Unique tasting experience with 4 glasses and a chalkboard:) you get to write in which beers you want to taste. Tastings are $4 for 4 beers. Reasonably priced. Knowledgeable bartenders. Good selection. Ample seating. They also have a store where you can buy beer to take back to where you are staying if you like something. A good place to... More

We visited on a Saturday afternoon and the place was packed. They had lots of seating so we didn't wait long for a seat. My husband enjoyed a flight, and I enjoyed a Pumpkinhead on draft!
