Portner Brewhouse Under Construction in Alexandria, Virginia

This is an update to this post. The Portner Brewhouse is opening at Modera Tempo, the 360 unit mixed-use apartment complex at South Van Dorn Street and South Pickett Street in the Van Dorn neighborhood of Alexandria, Virginia.

We had heard this was to be a June 2016 opening. We now hear this will be an early fall 2016 opening. As you can see, a LOT of progress has been made on the new brewhouse.

Co-founder Catherine Portner says “We are greatly looking forward to joining the Alexandria community this year and celebrating the return of Portner beer after a 100 year hiatus! Presently, we are projecting our opening towards the end of the summer/early fall due to unforeseen permitting delays.”

Catherine wanted to remind our readers that, like me, you can get the latest updates from the Portner Brewhouse by joining the FREE Taste Test Team.

Amidst the construction and after a brief hiatus, the Alexandria Historic Breweries Walking Tour & Tasting returns on Sunday, October 2nd. Join local historian, Garrett Peck and Portner Brewhouse co-Founder, Cat Portner on an adventure around Old Town. Local homebrewer, Justin Lee, will be pouring his New England Style IPA & Saison. Tickets are available NOW.
