Hello Shipyard Ale Society –
Halloween is just around the corner and we have all of your favorite pumpkin beverages. Track down Pumpkinhead, Smashed Pumpkin or this year’s Bourbon Barrel Aged Smashed Pumpkin using our Beer Finder.
If you are in Boston this weekend join us in Faneuil Hall on Saturday the 25th for The Great Pumpkin Party! Next week we’ll be back in Maine for Halloween celebrating at the Pumpkin Bash at Binga’s Winga’s.

The #ShipyardPumpkinhead contest is getting fierce! Join in on the action and cast your vote here before it’s too late. Pumpkinhead’s Greatest Fans will be announced on Halloween.


Coming this November to a store or bar near you: Shipyard GingerBreadHead!

Our newest winter seasonal is a full-bodied beer with a smooth malt character; accented with ginger, cloves and cinnamon. The essence of a spicy and rich gingerbread cookie dominates every bottle.

This seasonal brew will be available November through February while supplies last.

We love pumpkin everything during the fall and what better way to enjoy roasted pumpkin and your favorite pumpkin beer but in a deliciously creamy risotto. Our Signature Series Smashed Pumpkin not only makes a great ingredient for this dish, but the full bodied yet balanced character of this beer makes for a perfect accompaniment to this rich pumpkin risotto.
