Port City in Alexandria, Virginia served as our rest stop on a drive from Petersburg, VA to Glen Burnie, MD. It’s a brewery, not a brewpub, located along a commercial stretch of light industry. As we parked and strolled in we expected a typical, sleepy little tasting room. We were confronted by a packed, loud party of twenty-somethings. For a moment we thought we must have entered a private party (one where we could blend in and score some free beer!). In actuality, this was just a popular spot for imbibing. Port City was recently voted Best Local Brewery in a Washington City Paper poll.
The beer was excellent, the setting was energizing, and we were on our way to crab cakes in Maryland!3950 Wheeler Avenue Alexandria VA 22304 703-797-2739 Port City Brewing Co.’s Website Port City Brewing Co. on Facebook
