COVID-19 STATEMENT – Tasting Room closed until further notice.

An Open Letter to our Community:

Effective Sunday, March 15, 2020, we will be closing our Tasting Room until further notice.

We are doing this to help the community try to get a handle on the spread of Coronavirus.

While this will negatively impact our customers, coworkers and the business itself, we feel it is the right thing to do given the current circumstances. We need to get ahead of this public health problem, and one way to do it is to eliminate large group gatherings. Our craft beer is best enjoyed with friends and family, and our popular Tasting Room is known for just such public gatherings – saying this, we feel it is best to close the venue to the public for the time being.

Port City Brewing Company has always done what we can do to be a good neighbor and a responsible business community member. We appreciate your understanding during this difficult time. We look forward to raising a pint with you all in the Tasting Room, hopefully in the near future.

During this time we are equipped to sell beer to go in our parking lot, and are happy to load it in your vehicle. Read here for all information on Curbside Pickup at Port City, effective March 16, 2020. We are now also offering Port City On Demand beer delivery (within a 5 mile radius of Port City to VA residents)

Here’s to your health!

    Hi – A couple of questions. Do I have to preorder for pick up? The description on a Modelo bottle says “Golden, full flavored pilsner-style lager with a clean, crisp finish.” Can you recommend a Port City that’s close to this? Thanks.

      Hello Mary,

      We do ask that you pre-order for pickup but it’s not required. Here is the link to information on Curbside pickup – https://www.portcitybrewing.com/events/curbside-pickup-at-port-city/ .

      We would recommend our Downright Pilsner or Golden Export Lager as something close to the beer style you are looking for.

      Thank you!
