We brew award-winning craft beer. We are open for tastings, pints, growler fills, six-packs and kegs seven days a week. We have tours Thursdays through Sundays. Every Friday night there's live music and food trucks on Fridays and Saturdays. Look out for special events like Firkin Fridays, a Suspicious Package on tap, Lagers & Joggers with Pacers, Beer Yoga, Pedals 'N' Pints, Trivia and more... History: Established in 2011. We opened the brewery with the conviction that the DC market needed more local choices for great quality craft beer!

Port City provides an excellent selection of beers and ales raging from English bitters, to Belgiums, and typical hoppy American craft beers. The are consistently good. The brew pub is a bit out of the way for visitorys, but you are rewarded for your efforts.

Award winning brewery with the BEST IPA's I've ever tasted, and I have over 50 on my list. My wife and I really enjoyed the friendly atmosphere and super service. You should hold classes on service and teach some of the local restaurants.
