Thursday, April 28, 2016

PORTLAND, MAINE – (April 28, 2016) – Shipyard Brewing Company announces the release of Shipyard Island Time Session IPA.  This new year-round beer is an easy drinking IPA built with a variety of Northwest hops which contribute to the grapefruit and pine nose and spicy hop finish.

Shipyard’s vice president of sales and marketing, Bruce Forsley says “while there is still a place for highly-hopped, strong IPA, many IPA lovers are moving to fresher, easier to drink session IPAs.” Bruce notes that Shipyard’s latest IPA “strikes a beautiful balance by delivering the citrus and pine element of pacific hops and moderate alcohol strength.”

Shipyard will be celebrating the launch of Island Time IPA in Portland, Maine at $3 Dewey’s on May 5th from 5pm-8pm.
