PORTLAND, Maine — Shipyard Brewing Co. has leased space in a Memphis brewery to make its Shipyard Pumpkinhead, a wheat beer available in Maine from September to October.

Blues City Brewery will help the craft brewery meet this fall’s expected high demand for a seasonal beer.

Shipyard president Fred Forsley said the company’s Portland brewery is at full capacity and brewing in Memphis will allow it to meet demand.
