The lineup for this tasting:

 

 

Port City - Downright Pilsner

DOWNRIGHT. DONE RIGHT. NO HYPE.

Downright Pilsner was the first lager to become a Port City flagship. It debuted in 2012 as our first summer seasonal. Downright Pilsner is a brilliant gold lager, medium-bodied with a soft, round malt profile and crisp, spicy hop character.

 

We brew Downright in the traditional Czech Pilsner style, using 100% Pilsner malt and noble Saaz hops. To further accentuate the spicy aroma, we dry hop our pilsner with additional Saaz hops. Downright Pilsner gets its carbonation completely naturally as it lagers in our fermentation tanks for six weeks. www.portcitybrewing.com

Port City - Optimal Wit

TASTES LIKES SUNSHINE AND HAPPINESS

When something is optimal, it has everything it needs and nothing it doesnít. Our witbier has the perfect amount of spices, wheat, and hops. Brewed in the traditional Belgian style, Optimal Wit is crisp and citrusy with layers of flavor that evolve in the glass. In addition to classic wit ingredients like Virginia-grown wheat, Spanish orange peels, and coriander, we brew Optimal Wit with Grains of Paradise, which adds a subtle peppery finish. It tastes like Sunshine and Happiness! www.portcitybrewing.com

Port City - Essential Pale Ale

REFINED BITTERNESS AND FLORAL, PEACHY AROMAS

Essential Pale Ale is a deep golden color with bright aromas of summer stone fruits that leap from the glass. The first sip brings a firm bitterness, carried along by subtle sweetness and culminating in a refreshingly dry finish. What makes Essential stand out from its pale ale peers is the tantalizing peach and apricot flavors that come from the blend of American hops we introduce as dry hops using our patented HOPZOOKAÆ. www.portcitybrewing.com

Port City Monumental

IPA A BALANCED EAST COAST IPA

Our flagship India Pale Ale exhibits floral aromas and flavors of citrus and pine resin, balanced by toasty, caramel malt character. Monumental IPA pours a rich, clear copper with a tight white head. Neither astringent nor sugary sweet, Monumental IPA serves as a great example of a complex and perfectly balanced East Coast style IPA. www.portcitybrewing.com

 

ABV 6.3% | IBU 57 | Scores: 3.53/5 BeerAdvocate 3.59/5 Untappd

Port City Porter

MALTY AND CHOCOLATEY, YET REFRESHING

Smooth and silky, our flagship Porter pours a dark mahogany with a firm cap of tan foam. The complex malt bill imparts bittersweet chocolate and coffee notes and a depth that bigger beers aspire to. And unlike many of the stronger, sweeter dark beers in the market, Porter remains robust while having a refreshing character that doesnít weigh down the palate. www.portcitybrewing.com
