beer cheers

Did you know that there are over 1,500 breweries in the United States?

They produce everything from light lagers to chocolate stouts.

If you would like to enjoy a pint, visit one of these destinations near our Kingstowne apartments where you’re sure to spend an evening to remember:

Port City Brewing Company

Port City, located a 15-minute Uber ride away, boasts that it puts the “Ale” in Alexandria. Established in 2011, it celebrates the city’s rich brewing history, which dates back to the nineteenth century. While the beers are distinctive, they’re all easy to drink and well-balanced. The taproom features a welcoming atmosphere, and if the pineapple is above the brewery’s sign, it’s open for business. Year-round offerings include Monumental IPA, Downright Pilsner, and Essential Pale Ale. 

New District Brewing Company

When New District opened in 2014, it became the first distribution brewery in Alexandria County since 1916. It started as a home brewing hobby among friends and now offers 12 to 14 year-round beers. The brewers use the finest ingredients and strive to make the most innovative creations in town. Guests can watch the process as well as play games such as Jenga. Brews include Ginger Saison, Potomac Paddleboarder, and 1821 (a customer favorite). New District Brewing Company is a 17-minute drive away.

Right Proper Brewing

Right Proper, located 29 minutes away by car, produces soulful, balanced beers for its neighbors in Washington DC. Thor Cheston established the brewery after leaving medical school to follow his passion for beer. He envisioned a place with ever-changing brews and good food for less than twenty dollars. The cozy taproom draws a crowd, and features murals and reclaimed cherry wood. Beers include So It Goes, Raised By Wolves, and Cosmic Nightmares. 

These are just a few of the breweries near our apartments in Kingstowne, VA. If you’re searching for a place to call home, please contact us. We will schedule a private showing where you can see all our vibrant community has to offer.
