Federal Jack's - Kennebunkport Brewing Company
You could spend many an hour watching the boats arrive and depart at Federal Jack's prime Dock Square restaurant.

Federal Jack's is a veteran among the many Kennebunk restaurants and Kennebunkport bars. Bars in Kennebunkport, Maine are like all other port town bars, packed with people trying to grab a pint. And what better place to serve them than to start a craft beer brewpub.
KBC brewing was founded in the early 90s, with the restaurant being named after a locally built ship. Federal Jack's is a family friendly full-service brewpub that really nails the views. With outdoor deck-level seating, and an indoor brewpub-as-a-restaurant vibe, there is something for everyone.
Dock Square parking availability has declined over the years, so you will probably have to valet the Caddie with a young 20-something.

What started in 1992 quickly blossomed into a distribution-quality production in Portland, the Shipyard Brewing Company. The Kennebunk Brewing Company does offer a tour, so check it out.
A few of their craft beers are:
- Goat Island Light
- Shipyard Blue Fin Stout
- Shipyard Export Ale
- Sunfish Wheat
Seafood, obviously. Burgers and fries, typical American pub fare. And, a Sunday brunch. A decade and a half ago, they had a luxurious pineapple upside-down cake on the menu, if you will allow such a thing to be considered luxurious.
