  • I love this place! Great beer, good space to hang out at, and they have a food truck available every time I've been. They seem to have events happening all the time so I hope to come by again for one of those. Plenty of room for big groups!
  • Great brewery. Food trucks show up on occasion. Brewery folks are cool. Take the brewery tour. Good place for big groups.
  • Really great beer. Award winning. But doesn’t stack up to some of the other places I’ve been to for ambiance. One food truck and the barbecue was just OK. Lacking, but if you’re coming from the beer, go for it.
  • Port City has a few really good beers and some mediocre ones. Outstanding IPA, British IPA. Very good Belgian Blonde. Nice Robust Porter. Mediocre wit, Doppel, Double IPA, Rye Session IPA, Czech Pils.
  • If you like strong beers or are an IPA fanatic then Port City is for you. I personally am not a huge fan because they lack variety - everything tastes pretty similar with a real bitter aftertaste. My friend, whose veins pump IPA also felt indifferent and the only reason we came back was because we had remaining tasting tickets. We returned on a Saturday where it was in the 90s and it felt like the AC was off. We had to leave after 3 tasters because I had sweat through my shirt. The staff is really nice and engaging but I can name 5 breweries off the top of my head that is rather go to in the area.

Where to stay in Alexandria

Old Town boasts a number of high-end hotels that provide easy walking access to some of Alexandria's most popular restaurants, bars, and attractions. However, these are not typically budget-friendly; those looking to save a few dollars should consider a hotel or motel located on Jefferson Davis Highway. Though not technically within the city boundaries, these accommodations are considerably cheaper and often within walking distance of the metro. Alexandria is also home to a number of charming bed and breakfasts, several of which are located inside historical buildings.
