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 didn’t stay for a tour. Nothing special here but, it’ was literally I’m 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 you’ll find here. If your in Portland for beer (who isn’t) 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 -- there’s a handful of Maine-related trinkets along side the complete array of their beers (I bought 7 22 oz’ers). Again, wish they had a tasting room (Maine standard).

Big warehouse-looking building on the edge of downtown Portland with a couple giant Shipyard signs on the sides and a keg at the top of the flagpole- nice touch. You enter in the ground level into the store, which has a good selection of Shipyard bottles, merch, and sodas. The tour is basically just a video and a peek at the bottling line, followed by a tasting. Would have liked it if only the tasting was available without the "tour". That Maine law sucks. Staff is friendly here.

Went for the tour on a hot Saturday in July. They show you a movie that is a bit of propaganda for Shipyard, but what else would it be? It was fairly informative and not bad. I don’t know if it was the fact that they are very busy in the brewhouse, but you only get to see the bottling line in the brewery. You do get a nice selection of their beers as part of the tasting at the end, which included one of the Puglsey signature series. They also had their sodas available in the gift shop for tasting. Very large gift shop with a large selection of Shipyard stuff. The tour/gift shop staff was very nice and helpful. Beers available for sale also.
