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. We went there on a Saturday afternoon. They seemed to be doing brewery tours every hour, so the taproom would fill up, then they would do a tour, and it would clear out. (266 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)
