New Session IPA Takes You to Your Island Time

Our new session IPA is now available! Island Time Session IPA is a new, easy drinking year-round beer built with a variety of Northwest hops which contribute to the grapefruit and pine nose and spicy hop finish.

Our 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.”

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

Island Time will be available nationwide in bottles, cans and on draft beginning this May.
