ALEXANDRIA, Va. – Port City Brewing has brought back its limited edition summer seasonal, the Derecho Common.

The brew traces its origin to the 2012 derecho that hit the D.C. region just before the Fourth of July holiday and kept power customers in the dark for days, including the Alexandria-based brewery.

The seasonal is a California Common style beer with a deep golden color and is available now at the brewery, 3950 Wheeler Avenue, Alexandria.
