Established in 1992

Often referred to as the most picturesque pub on the waterfront, Federal Jack's Restaurant and Brew Pub is well-known for its spectacular views, creative pub fare, and award-winning hand-crafted ales. 

Jack's, as it's known by the locals, offers a brew with a view overlooking the Kennebunk River. 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 the birthplace of Shipyard Brewing Company's award winning-line of handcrafted ales. In y 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 Shipyard Brewing Company was built Portland, Maine.
