Authentic Alexandria

Experience Alexandria quality and passion in locally made goods. Port City Brewing Company, the city's pride and joy of the beer world, has taken beer lovers by storm, bringing quality craft beer to tap-houses and retailers and reviving the commercial brewing tradition in Alexandria. The Old Town Farmers Market is an Alexandria essential still going strong since the days of George Washington, where each Saturday, talented artisans sell originals like goat cheese, textiles and hand-carved wooden bowls. The ultimate in authentic Alexandria is found at the Torpedo Factory Art Center, a collection of working studios and galleries and that has become a Mecca for some of the best artists in the mid-Atlantic.
