The Robert Portner Brewing Company was once the South’s foremost and largest pre-Prohibition brewing company, headquartered in Alexandria, Virginia, where it eventually became the city’s largest employer. The brewery operated from 1869 until 1916, when it closed due to Prohibition. (Virginia went ‘dry’ before the rest of the nation.)

Founder Robert Portner’s great-great grand-daughters Catherine & Margaret Portner have set out to re-launch The Robert Portner Brewing Company as Portner Brewhouse, a brewpub, breweriana museum, and craft beer test kitchen, in Old Town, Alexandria, Virginia. They will be recreating some of the old Portner recipes and working with other craft beer entrepreneurs to help get them started.

The Portners are seeking crowd funding of ,000 via IndieGoGo.

"This crowd funding campaign is a piece of a larger funding puzzle. The total amount required to truly launch this concept will be .3 million – daunting but very possible. The remaining funds will be supplied by personal savings, outside investors, and commercial debt. Some 75% of the total raised will be used for developing the property and purchasing all of the equipment for the brewery restaurant. The remaining funds will be put to use securing staff, implementing technology, marketing, and, artifact preservation."
