Port City is a brewery a bit off the beaten track but it is well worth a visit, it has a good varied selection of beers brewed on site and I heartily recommend the Port City Porter.

A pretty fun brewery with a good selection of beers and a pretty expansive seating area. There are multiple bars so that helps service move along quicker.
