We had a private tour because we arrived between the hourly tour. The tasting beers included a choice of any 4 for $6. Beer is delicious, staff is friendly, food is not served here, just bags of snacks available for purchase.

Shipyard brews now come to me and I enjoy them 3 hours away from Portland 3-5 times a week. I drink the Shipyard Seasonal Night Wind and the Monkeyfist.

With the many local breweries in the Portland area the Shipyard Brewery has not kept pace with the times. The service can be great to downright rude. The Beer is just average.More

A really nice brewery to sample the many beers they make. Pumpkin is my favorite but it's not in season. Nice gift shop and store. My wife loved the cream soda.

We brought our 2 year old with us on our visit - didn't try the tour, but had a nice time in the tasting room. They even have a soda tasting that might be fun for your daughter!
