Right out of the 50s/60s - except thereís good beer. Pizza you design yourself. See the pie spin in the air. Lots of taps. Lots of bottles. The pizza guy came over to consult several times, and he brought stuff to put on to enhance the flavor. Beers? 3 dor 4 I hadnít rated. At least. Great service. Venue is open front with high tables and stools. Excellent. Parkiing can be a problem. Surfer dudes abound.

Great selection on tap. Hot bartender, but the atmosphere of the place leaves a bit to be desired. Pizza didnít look good and if you are there at the end of the night, they will give it away to have the next morning. We passed. Still not far from OC PP , so worth a stop over if in the area.

Deliscious pizza and odds and ends, fantastic beer selection constantly changing around local brews at great prices. I had a Pizza Port beer on cask that was not even supposed to be released yet. Great place, right on the beach in a very fun area.

Small little joint in the hippie beach area of Ocean Beach. The selection is not bad at all. They have about 12-15 taps and their motto is "no crap on tap", and while this is generally a true statement, the beer selection IS better at other establishments, but this is by far the best beer selection in Ocean Beach. Today, they had Arogant bastard, Ruination, Stone IPA, Speedway stout, Old Rasputin, Alesmith Grand Cru, Coronado Hoppy Friar, Steelhead, Firestone, Port Session Baja, and a bunch of others. The pizza is actually pretty good.

Keep in mind the context - this is a beer bar that happens to service pizza by the slice. The location was nice as far as proximity to the beach, but dear god donít come here in a decent car with decent attire. In fact, many patrons were missing items of clothing - shirts, shoes, etc. Beer selection was among the best in San Diego. Hands down, excellent. Actually it was almost too good - too many of the rare, limited release high ABV beers. This is a non-air conditioned pizza joint, itís hot, and everything is high ABV and/or very hoppy. Oh well, we had local hoppy beers and passed on the rare stuff. Pizza wasnít anything special. Wasnít bad. Selection of pies for your slices was good though. Service was alright. Very inexpensive.

Joint is full of hippies. Lots of bum locals that were chased off the beach when the alcohol ban went into effect. Very earthy types here. Pizza is very good, order by the slice. Very hidden little beer joint that doesnít get a lot of press but has some good bottles (FW 12 was only $20 back then) and the tap list rotates and is always worth a stop in when visiting OTM in OB. Checkit, checkit often, hoepfully when PP OB opens it wonít drown this place out of business, but I think thereís enough hippy love to support 2 beerínípizza joints.

Pizza and beer. What goes better together then those two things? Nothing I tell you, and this place is as simple as that. Of course only serving beer, they have an awesome selection of tap and in bottles. Including great west brew and some Alaskan beers on tap. The handmade pizza is incredible. And youíre with in shouting distance of the ocean.

this is a hidden gem in SD. Now boasting 21 taps, (up from itís previous 16), this place has taps everywhere, has fantastic pizza, and is a good replacement for those missing the Liarís Club being close to the ocean and within reasonable driving distance of SD. Nestled on Newport Ave on OB itís a perfect beachy vibe mixed with amazing brew will leave you wishing youíd heard about it sooner. I canít wait to go back next time I visit SD

NOTE: As your standing at the register looking at the big row of taps, be sure to look at the taps to your right, theyíre the high alcohol ones. Beers like Speedway, Old Crustacean, Chimay White, and Aís the Kaiser are over there. The place is pretty well kept up for being in Ocean Beach. Nice tile and decor, bathroom was OOS though and I had to pee bad. Selection of beers was good, I was almost expecting a little bit better, especially the local stuff, but they still lived up to their No crap, on tap motto. Not a fizzy yellow domestic to be seen anywhere. Beer tasted good, it was a reasonable price $3.75 I believe for a pint, TV, OB, Pizza(didnít try it, but it looked quality), surf, sunshine, whatís not too like.
