Such a fun place to try different beers! The options are all in front of you on the boards, you grab a piece of chalk and make your choices! Kind and knowledgeable staff, and the pumpkin beer was fantastic!

Great place, staff so super friendly and knowledgeable. I am not a big beer drinker but the blueberry is FABULOUS, I still sampled others and was really impressed. I will continue to visit every year.

Hi Kimberly, so glad you enjoyed our Sea Dog Blueberry! It's a favorite around here, and you can definitely find it out in retail stores in the meantime...and we'll look forward to your visit next year!

We aren't beer drinkers but really enjoy craft soda. Best of the day was Blueberry Pop, closely followed by root beer. Cola was okay and I'd steer clear of the ginger beer. Cool experience, nice gift shop.

Thank you Margaret for taking the time to review our Capt'n Eli's Sodas! Many people do come for the beer and are pleasantly surprised to find these all-natural soda offerings - glad you got to try so many. All the best!

Hi Karen, please accept our apologies for having your Tasting Room experience cut short - that's certainly not the kind of visit we intend for Shipyard fans. We're going to work to make sure that we more clearly communicate the arrival of tour groups to...More

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!
