Maine Eats: Shipyard Brewery @ Portland

View more posts from our 1st anniversary trip to Southern Maine!: Markey’s Lobster Pound @ Seabrook NH; Blue Rooster Food Co. @ Portland ME; Shipyard Brewery @ Portland ME; Mike’s Clam Shack @ Welles ME; Congdon’s Doughnut Shop @ Wells ME.

While walking around in Portland, a lady at Cabot’s Farmers Annex told us about soda-tastings (and beer-tastings of course, but that did not apply to us) at Shipyard Brewery! This was a longer walk from the Old Port area, so we drove and easily found parking (for free!)


Shipyard brewery from outside!


It says “beer” outside!


Closer to the entrance, you can have a tasting of some of Eli’s sodas. The root beer is supposedly the 2nd best root beer in the country! It was very good! We also tasted the blueberry soda, black cherry soda and cream soda. My 2nd favorite was the cream soda!


Just add beer! Pancakes and bread mixes!


Right at the back where a short door separates it from the gift shop, is where you can taste some beers and get your growlers filled.


Here’s how much growler fills cost. Pretty decent, right?
