Port City – Monumental IPA

Monumental IPA is a rich, clear copper in color. Our flagship India Pale Ale exhibits floral aromas and flavors of citrus with piney-resin all in combination with malty, toasty caramel background notes. Our unique twist with this IPA is that it demonstrates the delicious, yet elusive perfect balance between a hoppy bitterness and malt flavors.

We believe that Monumental IPA is a great example of a complex and perfectly balanced East Coast style of IPA.

Port City – Porter

Port City Porter is all about the bittersweet chocolate and roasted coffee notes evident in every step of drinking from the nose to the taste to the finish. Our Porter is dark chocolate-almost black brown in color with a complex malt character that enhance the aromas and flavors of roasted coffee and dark chocolate. Our unique twist with the Porter is having it be robust yet have the smooth, refreshing character on the finish that doesn’t weigh down the palate.

Port City – Optimal Wit – Belgian-Style White Ale

When something is optimal it has everything it needs and nothing that it doesn’t. The optimal amount of spices, wheat and hops is found in our Optimal Wit. Brewed as a traditional Belgian style witbier, it is crisp and citrusy with layers of flavor that evolve in the glass. We brew this with Virginia grown wheat and use Spanish orange peels and coriander, which are traditional wit spices. Our unique twist is Grains of Paradise, which gives it a subtle peppery character on the finish.

Port City – Essential Pale Ale

Essential Pale Ale is a deep golden color with bright aromas of summer stone fruits that leap forth from the glass.
