Become a Yardbird
"Shipyards do not build ships, ships do not fight battles. It is the people who build ships, people who fight battles." -- anonymous Mare Island Yardbird (civilian shipyard worker).
Two releases per year (spring and fall). $125 per release. Each is a "mixed craft case” (12 bottles, mostly 22oz’rs). Yardbirds can pick up their shipment at the Pick-Up Parties, have it held for later pick up at the Ferry Taproom, or have it shipped (as a member, you'll receive 50% off shipping).
Rotating limited-availability seasonal brews including: Monomoy Märzen Lager, Nuclear Sandwich Double IPA, Six Buckets Russian Imperial Stout and more.
Additional Yardbird-only, reserve level tiny-batch brews crafted specifically for our beloved Yardbirds including: General Order No. 99 and Murphy the Pig Fresh Saison.
Each release, Yardbirds and their guests can purchase tickets to our rockin' Pick-Up Parties held at our Coal Shed Brewery on the waterfront of Mare Island. Parties include catered food, beer, live music, an intense and highly anticipated game (usually the highlight of the event, water balloon launchers have been involved), and of course, your release will be ready for pick up.
YARDBIRD ONLY EVENTS
Multiple, fun, Yardbird-only events throughout the year: The Winter Feast, Yardbird Brewer's Bootcamp, 4th of July Fireworks viewing, SF Giants game, Historic Mare Island Brew Cruise, Crawfish Boil, and more. (See the calander below!)

Join fellow Yardbirds for our narrated historic brew cruise around Mare Island and surrounding areas. Historian and author, Brendan Riley, will provide the history narration while we'll provide the beer and a taco bar (both included with your ticket) on the boat whipped up by our own Chef Scotti! Come to enjoy some rich history, delicious food and drinks, and a stellar sunset on the water with us! Yardbirds can bring up to 3 guests.
Our "Winterfeast" last Spring was a huge hit (think Game-of-Thrones-worthy feast), so we've conspired with Chef Nicole (of local/beloved League of Chefs) to put on a large Crawfish boil, complete with beer pairings, right out on the waterfront in front of the Coal Shed Brewery. Tickets
include beer, food, and a ton of fun.
Welcoming all Yardbirds and guests to join us at the Coal Shed Brewery for our Fall 2018 release Pick-Up Party.
We'll have live music, catered food, and per tradition, our Yardbird game. Of course, your Yardbird shipment will be ready for pick-up at the party.
