Maryland Blogger: Port City Beer Tasting at Kingsview Liquor & Wine

Port City Beer Tasting at Kingsview Liquor & Wine

Port City Beer Tasting at Kingsview Liquor & Wine


The Montgomery County, Maryland Department of Liquor Control is offering free wine, beer and liquor tasting events in their many stores. Chef Dolores and I attended a recent tasting of three Port City Brewing Co. beers at the Kingsview Liquor and Wine Store in Germantown. The Port City brewery is located in Alexandria, Virginia and their tasting room is a good place to visit. Click on the link to view the Port City website.

We sampled the Optimal Wit, a Belgian style white ale, 4.8% Alc. by Vol., the Monumental IPA, Port City's flagship India Pale Ale, 6.3% Alc. by Vol. and the Colossal Seven Scotch Ale, their 7th Anniversary Scotch Ale, 8% Alc. by Vol. 

All of them were good. My favorites were the IPA and the Scotch Ale. Dolores' favorite was the Scotch Ale and we purchased a 6 pack to take home. 

If you live in the area, you may wish to check the schedule for the weekly tastings.
