Une brasserie immense, j’étais presque sous le choc quand j’ai vu ça la première fois. À l’intérieur, rien de surprenant, c’est comme le reste de la famille. Au moment où on se parle, j’ai goûté les bières les plus décevantes dans mes saucettes Pizza Port mais tout peu changer extrêmement vite.

Visited on Friday 14th November ’14, around 5.30pm, thanks to GT2 for supplying the wheels! This place is a modern facility and unlike the other 3 PP’s I’d previously visited, not a dive bar feel at all. Brewing facility on the left as you enter. Split over 2 floors, with a bar on each, the place was booming this Friday evening. Plus points over OB and SB, it has a solid guest list similar to Carlsbad perhaps 12 to 15, allied to 25 or so house beers. Usual good range of PP beers spanning some solid IPA’s and dark numbers to run of the mill wheats and browns. I settled down for a CDA from Societe which was a nice find. We stood upstairs where the service was a little slow, 2 guys taking orders for both food and beer and struggling to cope. We had to wait nearly 10 minutes to get served. Now the one downer for this Pizza Port (and others I’ve visited early evening) is the fact the place is over run with screaming kids (I guess this is just as likely on a weekend during the day time through early evening). I mean there was even a fucken kids birthday party upstairs, nowhere to sit but kids running amok and trays of fucken cup cakes laid out on the empty bench tables while I had to tick standing up - the bastards! Of all the PP venues surely this one could provide an adult only/21+ area in the separate upstairs area? That said, still a solid venue but I’ve learnt from this visit to CA to avoid them in the early evenings due to the brat factor.

Really big place that is surprisingly crowded in the afternoon. Lots of their own beers on tap, some of them really nice. Impressive tap list. Very nice but maybe a bit too noisy.

A big eating area, lots of picnic tables. Limited seating outside. Good pizza and beer as usual. I liked the fish tank made from a fermentation tank. Seems kind of sterile or corporate feel compared to the other Pizza Ports.

The location is off in a new-ish looking business/industrial park setting. After getting inside it has the same sort of set up with the food ordering area straight ahead, picnic tables and the beer ordering area separate and off to the left. Above the taps I can see part of the massive brewery space, wow. To the right and above the kitchen is more seating. Looking around they have surfboards hung from the ceiling and right next to me is the small fermenter-fish tank. Nice. I don’t know what it is; maybe the bigness of the overall space but this lacks the character of say the OB or Carlsbad location. It has more of a big box store (Target) feel to it. I think I just need to come back many more times to develop a better feel for the place :)

Huge brewing complex with a bit too much of a corporate feel. Very busy on a Thursday afternoon, I’m not a fan of the one line for beer, takes too long to get anything. They only had 4 beers on tap actually brewed at this location. A little too busy with no much available service. The two ipas I had were pretty excellent. Cool spot, but with Carlsbad so close I can’t see visiting this one.

Another great Pizza Port spot. I don’t know what’s not to love about these places. This one is massive and the attached brewing facility, too, is huge. Typically unpretentious vibe, picnic tab,e seating. One bar for beer, one ordering area for the ’za. Nice lineup of beers. Friendly bartender. I would love to have a place like this as a local. Worth visiting.

Visited October 2013.

Brand new location, brand new menu items, brand new beers, and brand new record set for most annoying kids in one place at one time. Ugh. This is a beautiful area, especially if you sit outside and look out over the valley. The industrial park and wannabe surfer bros do their best to detract from the experience but it’s nice. The only negative that successfully brought down my opinion of this place was the dozens of little kids that were running amok. Yeah I get it, it’s a pizza parlor so kids should be welcome (the curse of every Pizza Port) but put those disease bags on a freakin leash and don’t let them knock over drinks and scream all the time. Better yet, make a play center like McDonalds did and confine the families that can’t control their kids to that area.

All that aside, and IF you can find a parking space, the beer is good as is the food. They have a new pizza called the Bressi Ranch pizza that was pretty good. Kind of odd, but good. Sunflower seeds, pomegranate seeds, kale (that’s been baked with the pizza), and goat cheese make for an interesting combination. I think this is the only one of the pizzas named after a Pizza Port location that doesn’t have meat on it.

I’ll definitely come back at some point but San Clemente and Ocean Beach seem to have the least amount of obnoxious kids running around so I’ll likely go to those first over this place, not to mention that it’s a bit out of the way.

Big new Pizza Port located in an industrial building. Large brewing system, with canning line. Good beers mixed between all the pizza port locations and some guest taps. Same food menu as all the others, which isn’t a bad thing. The ambiance is a little to clean and industrialized for pizza port though. Still worth a visit.
