I live in Alexandria, within stumbling distance of Port City Brewing Co. When the recent derecho ripped across the region, power went out for days.

The beer in my fridge is one thing, but when Nature pulls the plug on the the power cooling the beer in Port City's vats, that is another matter entirely!

Here is a great story about how the threat of losing beer united a community. The story appeared in Neighborhoods - The Atlantic Cities.

And here are some follow-up articles about the result!
