Downright Pilsner was the first lager to become a Port City flagship. It debuted in 2012 as our first summer seasonal. This beer is a light gold in color and medium bodied with a soft round malt profile and crisp, spicy hop character on the finish.
The lager is brewed in the traditional Pilsner style, using authentic Pilsner malt and noble Saaz hops. Our unique twist on this beer is the dry hop addition of Saaz hops. This additional infusion of hops gives the beer an extra refreshing bite on the finish. Downright Pilsner gets its carbonation completely naturally as it lagers in our fermentation tanks for six weeks. 4.8%
Port City Brewing Company is proud to revive, celebrate and continue this rich brewing history in our modern artisanal brewery right outside of our Nation’s Capital. We started the brewery in January 2011 because we found that the DC area needed more choices for great quality, locally produced craft beer. We are committed to producing world class quality beers without compromise for the DC and Mid Atlantic market.
