Port City has created a new beer for the occasion: ALX275 IPA. According to the brewery website:

Join us on May 9th at Port City to kick-off Alexandria’s 275th summer! This is the first time you will be able to drink and take home the ALX275 IPA, brewed with 275 pounds of hops in honor of 275 years of Alexandria. This commemorative brew is packed full with a variety of flavors, notably cashmere, el dorado, and strata hops, for a bright and bitter brew.
