About Port City Brewing Company

Port City was founded in January 2011 to provide the Mid-Atlantic market with innovative, top-quality beers made from the best possible ingredients. Some of their most popular varieties include:
  • Optimal Wit: a Belgian-style white ale with a crisp and citrusy finish, brewed with Spanish orange peels and coriander.
  • Monumental IPA: an India Pale Ale that strikes a perfect balance between bitter and sweet, designed to represent the East Coast IPA brewing style.
  • Downright Pilsner: One of Port City’s flagship beers, this medium-bodied pilsner has a spicy, hoppy finish.
