Essential Pale Ale® is a great example of a true American Pale Ale. It has intense fruity hop aroma of peaches and apricots, and is refreshingly crisp with a clean finish.
DC is known as the City of Monuments, and our Monumental® IPA is a fitting tribute. Monumental IPA is distinctive for its complex aromas and flavors, and it strikes a perfect balance between hoppy bitterness and malty sweetness.
Enjoy summer year round with our refreshing take on the Belgian Wit beer. Crisp and refreshing, Optimal® Wit tastes like Sunshine and Happiness!
Smooth and silky, our flagship Porter is sure to wrap you up in its complexity and invite you back again and again for another taste of its robust flavors.
Downright Pilsner is our take on a traditional Bohemian style Pilsner. This perfectly refreshing lager will delight all year long! Downright is done right.
Our traditional Märzen style lager is perfect for welcoming in the fall season. Enjoy with football, a brat or two, and it'll have you saying "Prost!" like a genuine Bavarian!
The holiday season is filled with celebrations, mirth, and your loved ones. Share Tidings® with friends and family!
A traditionally malty brew, our spring seasonal has a deep, copper color with fruity accents and a delectable roast caramel malt flavor. Crafted with a hat-tip towards Scottish beer in the 1800s, we're sure you'll drink our Tartan for strength, good taste, and great times this spring.
Mid-Summer, 2012, a violent derecho windstorm barreled through DC, leaving one million people without power. The storm left us a gift in the form of this Derecho Common™, our California Common beer.
The Limited Ales
Long Black Veil a dark beer with a lot of (hop) character. Centennial and Magnum hops contribute citrus and floral aromas and an aggressive hop flavor. The Long Black Veil is jet black in color with a crema-like head. Port City uses generous amounts of dark malt for balance alongside the hop character. The complex flavor and textures lead to a satisfying and refreshing finish.
Port City Brewing Company is hopped-up and pleased to present our first double IPA – Maniacal™ IPA. Our brewers devised this new craft beer with hop maniacs in mind, and this brew is all about the hops!
Our very limited edition Revival Stout, only available at Port City Brewing and select oyster houses in the DC Metro area, is part of a perfect equation between the Chesapeake Bay, conservation, and beer. Teaming up with War Shore Oyster Company, we've crafted a standout brew that hints at the Bay and its many treasures while excellently pairing with your next bushel of oysters on the half-shell.
We brewed COLOSSAL™ ONE to celebrate our first anniversary and warm us against the cold of the Mid-Atlantic winter. This beer was a perfect fit for an important milestone. It is now an Occasional brew.
As our anniversary falls in the middle of winter, the darkest, coldest days in the Mid Atlantic, we have brewed a strong, dark ale to warm us against the cold.
COLOSSAL™ THREE is our Heller Bock, a beautiful tawny-hued result of choice hops and malts aged at 32 degrees Fahrenheit for 8 weeks. Enjoy the winter's cold with a one in hand.
