Shipyard Brewing (Portland, ME) has leased a space all the way in Tennessee in order to expand the overall capacity and introduce cans.
“This is a very exciting time in our growth,” stated Shipyard’s president Fred Forsley. “Our brewery in Portland is at full capacity and this allows us to meet consumer demand for our products.”
The new space in Memphis, Tennessee is created to open top ferment, and can Shipyard’s offerings. Export will hit cans this month in Maine and then markets around the United States. This fall? Pumpkinhead in cans.
Shipyard also has plans for a second Florida location. The brewery already operates a nano brewery in Winter Park. [PressRelease]
