This week, I’m giving away THREE wicked cool prizes, courtesy of Portland’s Shipyard Brewing Company.
The Shipyard Brewing Company was founded by Alan Pugsley and Fred Forsley. Shipyard first began in 1992 at Federal Jack’s Restaurant and Brew Pub in Kennebunk, which is one of Maine’s original brew pubs and working breweries. Within two years, demand for Shipyard beer outpaced the small operation and, in April 1994, Forsley and Pugsley opened the Shipyard Brewing Company in the heart of the waterfront in Portland, Maine on the site of the former Crosby Laughlin Foundry. Now, Shipyard is among the largest craft breweries in the US, and shipped 1,137,465 cases of their beer to 38 states last year.
Next Tuesday, I’ll be giving away some Shipyard gear to three randomly-selected readers. First prize is a large Shipyard Cuban Shirt, second is a ceramic stein from Grey Fox Pottery, and third is a Pumpkinhead cap. To enter, comment on this article with your favorite fall beer by 11:59 PM EST on September 20th.
