A Beer Road Trip: Washington DC to Richmond VA – Day 3, Port City Brewing

After the celebrations were complete, we made our way back to DC with a bit of time to spare before catching our flight.  So we decided to hit up Port City Brewing where we tasted the full gamut:


Ways and Means: Peppery, not bitter, but not for me.  IPAs are not my style

Monumental IPA: Smooth, English/East Coast style IPAs are more my speed

Revival Oyster Stout: Clean, crisp with a nice minerality from the oyster shells, a hint bitter, but stoutie

Colossal One: Love this! High abv but not in your face about it, bakers chocolate and coffee with a bit of frutiness.

Colassal Two: A bit too smoky for me, dark, thick and roasty too.

After a solid amount of time spent sidled up to the tasting bar, chatting it up with our “beer guide,” we started sharing beer geek stories, tasting notes, pictures of our beer collection (yes, that’s a thing, we take pictures of beer we are saving haven’t yet opened…).  Over the course of our chat, it became clear to him that we were serious enough to be shuttled to the back room and taste 2 experimental beers directly from the cask!


Borracho Smokin’ Brown Ale: Not overly smoky, reminds me of a campfire. In a really great way
