Port City Brewing Company

Vintner Bill Butcher traded grapes for grain when he opened Port City in January 2011. The first brewery in Alexandria since Prohibition takes its name from the city’s role as a colonial seaport. A former lighting-supply warehouse holds the immaculate brewing operation, where tour leaders invite the curious to sniff hops and admire the “hopzooka.” A tasting room offers samples of brews like the crisp Optimal Wit or briny Revival Stout, plus T-shirts, glasses and growlers to go. $9 (tasting and tour)
