This place ROCKS and it is my favorite place to be when I visit the surf soaked city of OceanBeach. The tap selection is always insane, with hard to find breweries like Nimbus, Mendocino, Angel City and Mission Brewey along with tons of other outstanding breweries. The pizzas are all kick-ass with the Ron Jeremy, (i call it the John Holmes, personal preference) being my favorite. You can also enjoy a miriad of 42 different vintage Nintendo 64 video games on the big screen, where else can you find that and enjoy a killer beer? The wait-staff is second to none and always are on top of empty beers ready to fill you up again. The standout people are of course the one and only Johhny Henry with his encyclopidic knowledge on every beer in the universe and his evil counterpart Miles slinging the dough. Just watch out if you go to Newport on Halloween, there may be a manic in very obscene short shorts who may try to touch you in an inappropriate fashion, visit at your own risk and try drinking something in the 11-12% neighborhood~

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.

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 nice beach community bar. The selection was very good and the staff was friendly.

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.

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.

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.

First things first, as a one-time east-coaster, I feel qualified to say that by California standards, the pizza is excellent. Good enough even that it would not be out of place in downtown Philly or the Bronx. As far as ambience goes, this is truly a pizza joint. Brightly lit, tiled-floor, no formica booths, but some saloon-style tables. But more importantly, there are sixteen taps. They do a great job of bringing in new stuff and keeping a vast array of styles on draft. Some macros and organic stuff in bottles. Hereís what they had on tap tonight: two Green Flash beers, two Left Coast beers, two Bayhawk beers, Old Rasputin Russian Imp. Stout, two Lost Coast brews, Hemp Ale for the hippies, Hoegaarden and Hacker-Pshorr Weisse for the sissies, Kronenbourg 1664 for the liters, Alaskan Amber, three Deschutes, including Inversion IPA, and Maudite. Not too shabby.

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.
