Shipyard first began at Federal Jack's Restaurant and Brew Pub in Kennebunk, Maine, and within several years of opening the restaurant, the demand for the beer became too great to handle.

The company prides itself on brewing handcrafted beers that feature consistent flavors created from the freshest ingredients.

Today Shipyard produces 17 types of English-style and seasonal ales as well as seven different types of pop. Shipyard operates several restaurants and breweries, and prides itself in being active throughout New England as well as remaining connected with the community. The brewery is one of the largest in New England, and its production is behind only Harpoon and Samuel Adams.

Shipyard Brewing Company produces a wide variety of beers, two of their most popular brews being Export Ale and Old Thumper Extra Special Ale. In addition several of their other beers include Shipyard IPA, Shipyard Light Ale and Blue Fin Stout. Some of their seasonal and special beers include their Barley Wine and their Smashed Pumpkin.
