PionEers of true
Refreshment & taste
Shipyard Brewing Company is a
family-owned brewery based on
Portland Maine for over 20 years.
Rooted in tradition and brimming
Innovation, our award-winning
beer was originally crafted by a
of brewers who learned their
art from world-renowned master
brewer, Alan Pugsley.
We have come a long way since entrepreneur Fred Forsley and master brewer Alan Pugsley started Federal Jack’s Restaurant & Brew Pub in 1992. Based in the picturesque seacoast village of Kennebunkport Harbor, the birthplace of Shipyard ales.
Fred very nearly failed before getting the brewery off the ground, but remained resilient, persevered, invested and grafted on what became an incredible adventure.
Our journey wasn’t an easy one, and we wouldn’t have wanted it any other way - something earned is always better. Hard work, tenacity and belief sit at the centre of what we stand for.
Whatever your challenge, nothing beats the satisfaction of a job well done. Shipyard exists to bring you refreshing, full flavour and easy drinking American craft beer, so you can reward your efforts.
