Went to shipyard since it was next to our hotel. The beer was good and the tasting price was reasonable for the 4. I would recommend getting there before 3. Once it's last call it gets crowded. Overall a good experience

Wonderful beer, people, and space. They offer free brewery tours where we learned all about the history of the brewery and how they brew their beer. The tasting room is awesome! They have a bunch of games so you can play games while drinking your flight. The gift shop has some really cool stuff as well.

I came here with my wife, her dad, and her brother. We did a flight of beers and they were all really good. I had an IPA, and they had a pilsner, some sort of tea beer, and a pale ale. The place has a great scene. It's definitely worth seeing when in Portland.

Went to the shipyard brewery with a friend. There beer was delicious and reasonably priced. The service was great. The bartender was full of recommendations and delivered fantastic service. When in Portland I would definitely recommend stopping by for a beer flight!

While this certainly wasn't my first New England brewery visit and won't be my last, it was, to this point, my fastest. I don't recommend arriving on Sunday at 4:03pm when last call is 4:30pm, but if you do, don't fret, take a seat and enjoy some of the fine libations that SBC has to offer. I could sit here... More

We had the best tour guide, Bruce, who was incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. He was open with any questions we had and really made us walk away with a much deeper appreciation for the brewing process. After the tour we were able to pick your own flight flavors (4-4oz for $6) it was a great way to relax and experience... More

Warm inviting atmosphere with many choices of yummy beers. There were card games on the tables to keep the fun going. Nice quick stop for a tasting.

The brewery tour was nice, they only do it once a day at 11am so make sure you are there if in time. The tasting room had a great selection of beer and soda for the non-beer drinkers.

Great brewery to visit in downtown Portland. The range of beers at Shipyard will ensure there is something for everyone. They also have sodas on draft for non-drinkers. You can sample a flight of 4 beers have a pint of your favorite. There is plenty of seating. The store is in the same location and they have a great selection... More
