Portland Beer Abroad

Maine Public has published a report on Shipyard’s exports to the UK where their beer is in 900 pubs.

This international marketing strategies appear to be paying off. Coles says sales of the American Pale Ale have grown 30%, year over year in the UK- 50% for the IPA. Marston’s even has plans to lead a group of visitors from the U.K. to Portland later this year in order to visit the original birthplace of Shipyard.
