I went on the tour here a few years ago and remember it has being one of the most interesting, informative tours I have been on. Obviously this depends on the guide, our was a former brewer so he knew a lot of the details. They have a some unusual methods, which were fun to see. The beer is pretty mainstream/old fashioned but itís not gross or anything. I donít remember if I had to pay anything for the tour, but it was worth it.

When I was stationed in Maine, I sometimes visited this brewery after work or even sometimes after other events in downtown Portland. Itís a decent clean atmosphere of a brew shop - nothing wrong with this place. Staff seemed okay for what they knew, serviceable. The selection is obviously based on their brews. The value, well itís downtown Portland, Maine, go figure, in other words, decent. Overall, decent brewery and super quick tour. Last thing Iíll say is that Allen Pugsley studied in the UK under the British styles so if you donít like the British styles, quit drinking their beers and trolling a company that doesnít cater to crapheads.

Directly next to our hotel so I stopped in and picked up a brewery only bottle of barrel aged smashed pumpkin. The shop area was nice but, overdone with gimmicky crap (doormats, placemats, etc). They offer tours every hour with a video of their history and beer samples including 1 full beer. I didnít stay for a tour. Nothing special here but, ití was literally Iím between out hotel and the parking garage. Very touristy.

This place is definitely a tourist trap. The tour consists of sitting in a room with church pews, watching a 5 minute poorly made movie, and then sampling some beers. The shop and bar there are very nice looking, but overall I was just let down with everything. Prices were on the higher side. Furthering my point of a tourist trap.

Fun tour, and like someone said, speed dating for beer. Tour guide was quite funny, and he poured lots of beer. None of the beer blew me away, but none were bad either.

The brewery tour was the beer equivalent of speed dating, 8 or so beers in 15 minutes, just rapid fire. But that was OK, because we wanted to move on to some other places anyway. Beer was not terrible.

About a mile walk from the water. Small tour with tasting and huge retail area, anything Shipyard youíll find here. If your in Portland for beer (who isnít) a stop here is worth it.

Nice enough tasting room with plenty of free samples.. the tour was the worst, boiler room was 100+ degrees and we were in there for 10min, right after being in the cold room! terrible tour

Mediocre tour - watched a lame video and saw the bottling line. The gift shop is big, but I think Shipyard should spend less time making t shirts and more time trying to improve the quality their product. Enough with the ringwood yeast!

Located close to town, their gift shop almost feels like a cheesy tourist shop -- thereís a handful of Maine-related trinkets along side the complete array of their beers (I bought 7 22 ozíers). Again, wish they had a tasting room (Maine standard).
