Port City Brewing Co. to Release Tidings Ale

ALEXANDRIA, Va. On November 4, Port City Brewing Company welcomes back Tidings Ale, a strong, spicy Belgian-style blonde ale brewed with local honey and Virginia-grown wheat. These local ingredients store away the essence of summer to warm you during the cold winter months. Gently spiced with coriander, cardamom, fresh ginger, and grains of paradise, Tidings balances complexity and drinkability like few other beers can.

“Tidings Ale is always a huge hit,” says founder BillButcher. “It’s perfect for people who love the flavors in our best-sellingOptimal Wit but want something a bit bigger and bolder when the temperature drops. And Tidings is a wonderful accompaniment for classic holiday meals.”

Port City will welcome the beer back starting with a release party at the brewery on Friday, November 2nd, with market releases shortly following.  In anticipation of the 2018 Tidings release, Port City will tap a special keg of 2017 Tidings aged in white wine barrels on Friday, October 26th.
