Hello Shipyard Ale Society –

With the big day of thanks just a week away, we are reminded of just how grateful we are to the beer that built Shipyard Brewing Company: Export Ale. It was 22 years ago in Kennebunkport, Maine that Alan Pugsley created this North American Golden Ale for your drinking pleasure. Little did he know it would lead to a portfolio of over 20 different styles of beer. Today, we continue to raise our glasses in thanks to this well-loved beer and all that it means to the people who have enjoyed one or two over the years.



Thanks Export and thank you Shipyard Ale Society for keeping Shipyard a part of your celebrations for over 20 years!




Share your Shipyard Export stories with us across the web.


Shipyard GingerBreadHead

We are spicing things up for the holidays with the newest addition to the Shipyard lineup, Shipyard GingerBreadHead! This rich brown ale, with a hint of molasses and spicy fresh gingerbread on the nose, has a smooth malt character, accented by a ginger, clove and cinnamon spiced finish.

This spicy new offering is available nationwide this winter. Find it near you, while supplies last, using our Beer Finder.

Interested in the history of spiced beers? Check out this blog post by Shipyard Trade Brewer, Bruce Elam.


Santa is hitting the town for the 4th Annual Santa Pub Run on Thursday, December 18! Santa will be with the Shipyard Crew popping into pubs in Portland’s Old Port raising funds for Pine Tree Society to send a lucky child to camp this summer.

Everyone is invited to join us for the run or just stop by one of the pubs to make a donation right to Pine Tree Society and enjoy a pint with Santa. A list of participating pubs will be announced on the Shipyard Facebook Page.

To learn more about the great work that the people of the Pine Tree Society do, find them on the web here. If you can’t make it out to the Old Port on December 18th, join us in spirit by making a donation to Pine Tree Society here.



Ever wonder what it would be like to brew on a larger scale?  We offer the unique opportunity of brewing vacations. From January through May, book a Maine Brewing Vacation with Shipyard and learn with some of the country’s best brewers. Find everything you need to know here.


Get ready for the holidays with this treat! Spicy, sweet gingerbread goodness cannot be beat this time of year and GingerBreadHead only enhances this gingerbread cookie recipe by offering a bit more depth from the malts and spice added to this beer.
