Hello Badassbeer!
We are brewing in high gear as we wrap up the summer months and head into Pumpkinhead season. It’s hard to believe our annual Maine Pumpkinhead launch party is tomorrow! We’ll be spending the evening at the Stockhouse in Westbrook, ME with GOGO the card magician, enjoying live music on the deck and sipping on $3 pints of Pumpkinhead. If you can’t make it to Maine, keep your eyes peeled for Pumpkinhead Parties near you.

We are also excited to be bringing back two other fall favorites – Smashed Pumpkin and Bourbon Barrel Aged Smashed Pumpkin. Both will be available at our brewery store and in select markets this fall.

New this season is our rye IPA, Little Horror of Hops, which will be hitting bars and package stores next month. Find more on this new addition below!


The Crew


Pumpkinhead is back for the season and we’re reminded of the variety of ways people like to spice up their Pumpkinhead.

While some like a shot of spiced rum and others prefer vanilla vodka, we opt for Pumpkinhead straight up in a pint rimmed with cinnamon sugar!

We have compiled all of the variations on the Pumpkinhead beer-tail for you to try. Let us know what you think!


The newest addition to the Shipyard line-up, Little Horror of Hops, is a hoppy Rye IPA balanced by a complex malt blend. The peppery spice notes and robust citrus hop flavor complement the dry hop finish.

You may recall this beer from its debut during Portland Beer Week last year. Well, now it’s back for the fall season.

This September find this hoppy beverage near you using our Beer Finder.
