A friend and I took their brewery tour which is $7 (I think) and includes 5 tastings. Their brewery is nice and new with lot's of open space inside the tasting room and the actual brewing area. The tour was average. My friend who likes beer but doesn't know a lot about the process didn't come out any more educated. It got surprisingly crowded in the tasting room (not bar crowded though) in between the tours but quickly subsided. We hung out for a couple hours drinking our samples. We actually ended up with 7 samples because of a couple free pours they were giving. The beers were above average and I went home with a growler of the Porter which was very good. The only thing I would change is to have some seats in the tasting room, people would probably stay around a bit longer. Overall its a nice local brewery to drink a beer!! (837 characters)

Great stopping point outside DC in Alexandria VA. Wide open tap room, with well designed process for working through all their brews. $2 a taste, and to run the table you get a book of tickets to pace yourself. Food trucks stop by and you can bring the food inside. Growlers, min-growlers, and SWAG to go. (305 characters)

I really enjoyed visiting Port City. Their taproom is very nice, and their beers were very good. (96 characters)

What you basically want when visiting a small brewery in suburban setting. Food truck outside, band ready to play, people inside and out (unfortunately you can't walk outside to food truck with beer or relax at table due to commonwealth law). Lots of people, crowded, however not too noisy and bar area not crowded so not a problem with beer time waiting. Bartenders know their beer, they're quick, don't mind helping you out, they have a nice sample deal (6 6 oz samples for $10) so while it's simple/no frills you can't go wrong here. (536 characters)
