About Us

SincE 1992

Our Story

This award-winning restaurant and brewery was built on the site where, in their heyday, Kennebunk’s historic 19th century shipyards built schooners known throughout the world for their grace and speed. Federal Jack’s was named for one of the most famous ships built on this site in 1908.  

– The Federal Jack 

One of Maine’s first brew pubs, this popular restaurant is also the birthplace of Shipyard Brewing Company’s award winning-line of handcrafted ales. In 1992, entrepreneur Fred Forsley and master brewer Alan Pugsley established the Kennebunkport Brewing Company (KBC) and Federal Jack’s. Word of our fine ales spread quickly throughout Maine. Demand quickly outpaced our size and in 1994, Shipyard Brewing Company was built in Portland, Maine.
