Shipyard Brewing Co. in the UK
Shipyard Brewing Co. and Ringwood Brewery have been collaborating for almost 20 years since brewer Alan Pugsley left Ringwood to move to America. Shipyard continue to brew Ringwood Old Thumper for the American market, along with an American specific variant, Double Thumper.
Since Ringwood joined the Marston’s Beer Co family in 2007, the relationship has developed further with Shipyard collaboration brews such as Independence Pale Ale regularly appearing on the seasonal guest cask ale programme.
With the launch of the first permanently available Shipyard American Pale Ale in May 2013, the partnership goes from strength to strength with more beers planned to satisfy the thirst of British drinkers for American craft beer.
