2020 is a leap year, meaning February has 29 days rather than the more common 28.
Port City is hosting Leap Beer Day from noon-10 p.m. at its Alexandria brewery (3950 Wheeler Avenue).
“On Leap Beer we will be celebrating with an additional 5 oz taster (of any beer available) for all flight and pint purchases,” the company said in an event description. “We are calling that additional taster a Leap Beer! If you are a ‘leapling,’ ‘leap-year-baby’ or a ‘leaper’ then enjoy a percentage off your total equivalent to your Leap Year age. Born on Leap Day in 1960? Enjoy 15% off! Happy 15th birthday!”
Additionally, anyone buying one case of Port City (starting at $47) gets a second case for $29.
Food truck Basic Burger is also scheduled to be parked outside the brewery.
