Front Street Brewery – Mid-May News & Brews – Featured Beer: Port City IPA

Front Street Brewery Masthead

Front Street Brewery | May 15th, 2018

Featured Beer:

Port City IPA

New and improved! We’re more than a year into ongoing revisions to create the perfectly crushable IPA: light-bodied, not too bitter, bursting with juicy citrus-and-tropical hops, yet dry and quenching on the finish. Our approach emphasizes the hops’ bright flavors rather than their bite. Enjoy one of the most balanced, delicious IPAs in the South, a gold medal winner at the Carolinas Championship of Beer, and let us know how we’re doing.
