Port City Brewing Company is celebrating the expansion and grand re-opening of the Tasting Room by hosting the first “Port City Pint Party” on Sunday, July 1, 2012 from 12 PM-6 PM. The renovations include adding a second Tasting Bar and an express growler filling station. The Tasting Room will also begin serving full pints in addition to offering tasting flights of Port City beers. Port City’s Tasting Room is one of the first breweries to serve pints on site due to changes in the Virginia Alcoholic Beverage Control laws allowing breweries to serve on the premises, effective as of July 1. Port City will continue to offer educational public tours of their state-of-the-art craft brewery on an expanded schedule and will be increasing opening hours as well.
