They don’t call it the Great American Beer Festival for nothing! We met a ton of great people and drank some pretty delicious craft beers this weekend. Thank you to everyone who stopped by the Shipyard table to say hello and check out our brews!

The star of the show was our Bourbon Barrel Aged Double Scottish Ale. This limited release ale from our Barrel Aged Series is a people pleaser, packing a nice malty, smooth character and finishing with a dry, subtle bourbon spiciness. If you are trying to track down this tasty beverage near you, check out our Beer Finder.

Learn more about the Shipyard Barrel Aged Series here. Coming soon to the lineup is a Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Stout. Look for it this winter!

Trail to Ale 10K: The Original Shipyard Beer Run

Monday, September 22, 2014

Congratulations to the over 1,400 runners who stuck out the rain and mud to make for another great Trail to Ale 10K. You guys rock!

This race is near and dear to our heart not just because we have seen it through its infancy and into the sellout race that it is today, but because all of the proceeds from the race and beer sales go right back into the community. Portland Trails uses the funds to maintain the beautiful trail systems that you see throughout Portland. If you live in or around Portland, you probably know how great these folks are but let us remind you why you should love Portland Trails as much as we do:

Portland Trails is a nonprofit land trust that preserves green space for public access. Since 1991, they have been working to create and maintain a network of trails that connects people with some of the most beautiful places in greater Portland.

Pumpkinhead Cupcakes

Thursday, September 18, 2014

Who doesn't like cupcakes?

Shipyard Pumpkinhead Cupcakes have been a popular recipe over the years, so we took to the kitchen to whip up a batch of these decadent cupcakes featuring cream cheese frosting. 

The spiced clove and cinnamon flavor and aromas of Pumpkinhead are a perfect match for such sweet cupcake goodness.

For those of you who prefer a good old Maine whoopie pie, Pumpkinhead makes for a similarly stunning ingredient.
