Shipyard E-Mail Newsletter


Hello Shipyard Ale Society!


We are officially welcoming summer to Maine, which means it’s already summer in the rest of the country. The brew house is working full tilt to make sure Shipyard fans are ready for beaches, golf courses, BBQs, and patios! With the addition of Shipyard Summer Ale and Export Ale in cans and the release of our refreshing new Melonhead Ale, all of your beer needs are covered.


Let everyone know where you are finding Shipyard cans near you on Facebook and Twitter #sipashipyard.

Cheers from The Crew!

Melonhead Has Hit Store Shelves!

Thank you to Clarke Distributors for the photo of Melonhead in action!

Melonhead has officially made its debut as the newest addition to our seasonal lineup of headless horsemen ales. At 4.4% ABV this beer has a refreshing essence of juicy watermelon on the nose and a crisp wheat ale finish.
Check out our beer finder to locate you nearest Melonhead and let us know what you think!
