I attended a wedding reception this afternoon and was able to grab a couple Shipyards as it seems to be the beer that all the local function halls have for people that do not enjoy the Bud, Michelobs and Miller Lites. Overall not a bad beer but certainly low on my list if I had a long list of beer available. I think it is the slight hoppy aftertaste that spoils this one for me. It is certainly best when enjoyed with a meal as that tends to dampen the aftertaste. Had a great time at the reception and anytime you can have a beer surrounded by great people having fun it is a good day.
