    Brewer Cellar Person Job Description
    Who we are:
    Port City Brewing Company is a fast- growing, award-winning craft brewery in Alexandria, VA. We produced over 16,000 barrels last year, and took top honors as 2015 Small Brewery of the Year at The Great American Beer Festival. We are a busy facility and work hard every day. Our beer is not pasteurized or filtered so sanitation is of utmost importance in our brewery.
