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!

We brought about 12 people over to the Brewery on Sunday afternoon on President's Day Weekend. Some of us did the sampler and were very happy with the range and quality of the brews. Others just bought a glass of their favorites. No one was displeased. They also had a food truck outside and several people munched on some of... More

Port City is a local jaunt for us. We love to bike there, fill growler, hang out, etc. place is great! So why the 4 stars, not 5? Atmosphere...come on gang, the place is always filled. Invest some money into the decor like other breweries. Maybe a few more high tops and some really cool branding that is in keeping... More

I absolutely LOVED Port City. The best part is probably the space itself. It's awesomely decorated and basically like a beer clubhouse with proper tasting room, picnic tables right in the production area, and upstairs area with comfy couches, TV, etc. So much more pleasant than other breweries I've been to which only offer 1 large, overcrowded tasting room with...

I was in town for the weekend, and came in on Friday 10/28 to celebrate my husbands birthday. It was pretty busy. Patrons came in Halloween costumes, live music, and a food truck. The Puerto Rican food truck was pretty mediocre; so I wouldn't set your heart on having actual dinner here. Maybe a snack to keep you going, but... More

Shared a tasting (6 tickets for $12) of Port City's best and came away happy. Monday night food truck had a delightful chicken and biscuit. Lots of fun and way low key.

Flight of 6 for $12- get tickets and choose beers at your pace. The Porter is excellent- others are very good. Fun afternoon activity. Great service!

We love riding our bikes to Port City to fill our growlers. Where else can you go to play free Donkey Kong!!! They often have great live music and an eclectic mix of clientele to people watch...from running groups to bachelorette parties, all ages, all manner of attire. Everyone's friendly. You see it all at Port City and we always... More

the beers and the staff were outstanding. Super friendly and accomadting staff. We were there on their Oktoberfest celebration so it was crowded and the weather was brutally hot and humid. In spite of that, they were very good. We went on a tour which was okay. It's not that big so the physical part is very easy. The guide... More

I have to ask, is beer made any better than PCB? Every friend that I bring there is completely astounded by how good their beer is. If you asked me to go to any brewery on the planet...this one would get serious consideration!

If you haven't heard of Port City, you should've by now!!!! This brewery is the real deal and we just moved here from San Diego, the beer mecca of the world. Great people, tasty brews, and fabulous atmosphere. This will be a regular stop for us. Just wish they had the awesome sample wooden boards!
