I visited the brewey on a rather slow Sunday. Rob the bartender was very kind and enjoyable to chat beer topics with. The other female bartender was a little rough around the edges. The flight tester is very reasonably priced with large samples and you get to keep your sample glass. The tasting room is spacious however lacks bar stools. The beers were decent and it seems the brewery goes for milder and more drinkable and safe brews which is fine. My only knock was that there was one beer that wouldn't be available on tap until the weekend but it was available to try on the tour. They wouldn't allow me to try it unless I stayed an extra 45 minutes to attend the tour which I felt was a little unreasonable but rules are rules I guess. If you are in the area you might consider dropping by.

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

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.
