Port City Brewing Company to Release Rivershed Ale

ALEXANDRIA, Va.Port City Brewing Company announces the release of a new Limited Release brew, Rivershed Ale, a Dry-Hopped Pale Ale with 100% locally sourced grain.

Port City BrewingCompany has always believed in a strong commitment to quality and whenever possible sourcing high-quality ingredients locally. Rivershed Ale is brewed with the same wheat used in our flagship Optimal Wit since 2013 – proudly grown in Virginia in the Northern Neck on the Chesapeake, and packaged by Bays BestFeed.  The beer also features Delaware grown barley called Violetta, sourced from Proximity Malt in Laurel,Delaware.

Rivershed was brewed with Loral and Centennial hops – creating a fruity, floral and citrus aroma, and notes of dark fruit and berry on the flavor profile.  The beer was dry-hopped with HOPZOOKA, our patented method that uses CO2 to force hops into our fermenter without exposing the beer to oxygen.

To celebrate the release of Rivershed Ale, Port City will host dozens of events in D.C., Maryland andVirginia.

“These events range from Tap Takeovers, In-Store Tastings, and fundraisers, to Beer Dinners culminating in our first ever 5k run at Port City, Rivershed Run,” says Events andMarketing Manager Emma Quinn, “Post run we are throwing a Memorial Day Party at the brewery that will celebrate all things local along with the beer release!”

The post-run MemorialDay party will feature a pig roast, along with other food offerings and bluegrass throughout the day.
