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.

We opened the brewery with the conviction that the DC market needed more local choices for great quality craft beer!

Was on a tour with a group of friends to see how they make beer. The tour guide, a Junior High school teacher who also works there showed us the vats and explained the various steps to making beer. It was both fun and educational.

We come to this brewery every weekend to fill our growler! They have great selection of beers and exceptional staff. There is a food truck outside the pub in case one gets hungry. Very happy place!! 🍻Cheers!

Great Saturday drinking tasters at Port City Brewery! From a light ale Whit to the deeper notes of Colossal Five! There was a BBQ food truck there today which was a great addition to the beer tasting. One of our favorite craft beer brands!

While I'm no beer connoisseur, I must say I enjoyed what I drank. Clean and fresh tasting. I was attending an event, and found the venue accommodating, clean, and interesting. I recommend giving it a try on a day when they have food trucks there...

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.

You have to try this place. Industrial park with a gravel parking lot outside. At prime times there's a food truck outside. Good size room with several stand up tables and a small bar. It can get very crowded. Cooler to purchase beer to go....More

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.
