Shipyard Brewing Company has been brewing for over 20 years and is a family owned brewery based in Portland Maine. Brimming with innovation and rooted in tradition their award-winning beer is handcrafted by a team of brewers who learned their art from world-renowned master brewer, Alan Pugsley.
Shipyard Brewing have come a long way since entrepreneur Fred Forsley and master brewer Alan Pugsley started Federal Jack’s Restaurant & Brew Pub in 1992. Based in the picturesque seacoast village of Kennebunkport Harbor, the birthplace of Shipyard ales.
The launch of Federal Jack’s coincided with the birth of America’s craft beer industry and, just two years later, demand outpaced the brewing capacity at the pub and Fred and Alan opened the Shipyard Brewing Company in Portland in 1994.
Shipyard is now one of the fastest growing craft breweries in the USA, ranked as the 25th largest craft beer company in the U.S. and 31st overall.
Shipyard Low Tide Pale Ale (0.5% ABV) is a juicy, tropical Pale Ale, with a fullness that belies its low alcohol. Generous quantities of hops are added throughout the brewing process and it is those hops that deliver Low Tide’s richly fruity hop character, with tropical fruits, and notes of subtle citrus and blueberry.
