We are honored to have been a part of your community and your history.
When we opened Portner Brewhouse in March of last year, we sought to give a piece of Alexandria’s history a home in the West End and provide a community gathering place to relax and enjoy the company of friends and family. While this chapter in Portner brewing history may seem short-lived, it will remain with us for the entirety of our lives.
In realizing the changes to the surrounding landscape, we pushed for appropriate changes to our lease agreement, which were temporarily provided however, permanent change could not be achieved. We did everything in our power to sustain the company it for as long as possible, which is why we are sharing the conclusion to this chapter with you today.
Whatever the future holds, keep us in your thoughts, drink really great beer and hold family dear.
Catherine, Margaret, and the entire Portner Brewhouse Team
P.S. We have been overwhelmed by the response we have received and thank you very much for your support! While the brewpub at Modera Tempo is now closed, we are working with excellent partners to determine what the next iteration of Portner Brewhouse may look like.
