Tap Handle #66: Sea Dog (Shipyard) - Blue Paw Wild Blueberry Wheat Ale

A great-looking tap for lovers of dogs or anything blueberry, with a very nice label. The dog is a Great Pyrenees named Barney, who was the "apprentice brewmaster" and figurehead. Although Great Pyrenees normally don't like water, Barney loved to swim, and was sailing at the age of three months, earning the nickname "Sea Dog".

Sea Dog Brewing was founded in Camden, Maine in 1993 by Pete Camplin, Sr. Camden was a historic shipbuilding town, and Sea Dog's brewpub and brewery overlooked the waterfall of the old Knox Woolen Mill. In 1995 they opened a second location in Bangor on the Penobscot River. In 2002, brewer Alan Pugsley and entrepreneur Fred Forsley, the owners of Shipyard Brewing, bought Sea Dog. Eventually the Camden site was closed, but two other brewpubs were opened: one in an old mill on the Androscoggin River in Topsham, and another in South Portland. The Sea Dog and Shipyard brands are partners under the same ownership, but the brands are still separate from each other.

Blue Paw Wild Blueberry Wheat Ale is a winter seasonal that features the nuttiness of a wheat ale balanced by the subtle fruit flavor of wild Maine blueberries. Weighted average on is 2.88 out of 5.
