Visited this place over two days including the 12 Hour Belgian Party in 2007.
OK- so the selection was amazing to begin with not to mention the stuff available next door at the fest. I liked being able to drink big Belgian malt bombs and lambics and stuff and then hopping back and having a double IPA! Even during the fest this place was packed, the only time it was quiet was the following morning at 11 when I was the first or second one in there but it started to fill up about an hour or so later for lunch. Excellent food here, just as at Solana. I think the beer list here was slightly better too and I believe that there were a few more to choose from. There’s pretty much no reason to not go here.

The beer selection is fantastic along with the ambience and vibe. San Diego surf feel with good photos, video, and boards on the walls. The Nightrider Stout, Poorman’s IPA, and Lost Abbey ale are first rate. Pizza is good too.The best call is have some beers at Pizza Port and then walk down to Knockout Pizza on the Coast Hwy. for some of the best NYC style pizza in town.

This is the top ranked of the chain, even according to staff, in terms of beer. It is twice the size of Solana and also in a swanky area. It is a family oriented place, very well-managed, everybody knows their job and smiles. I would think they are paid above average. There were a lot more taps than in Solena including guest taps, I believe I was told 39. Both Pliny the Elder and the Younger, whereas only (!) the Elder at Solena. To get here took some planning as you had to figure the Coaster schedule and I had to make a cabbie deal, if you can find one, to get back the 15 minutes to Solena. People were not as knowledgable about beer, either the patrons who were friendly enough and from everywhere, or the staff, and the bar being so much bigger was less conducive to chatter.

Surf atmosphere. Busy and packed. Excellent selection, however, one of their beers was a diacetyl bomb! Prices were fair and the pizza was excellent!

Beach shack like atmosphere, surfboards everywhere, press wood walls, looked pretty beat up, but friendly. Strange setup for a brewpub of this quality and reputation, but it had a certain charm and was undoubtedly a nice change of pace. Bar section is to the left, with the menu on top. There were about 20 Beers available, I was really impressed by the range presented, Everything I had was fantastic and fresh. The crowd was a mix of both young kids and older guys on their lunch break. Our bartendress who was welcoming, helpful and on the ball about what they had to offer served us promptly. Even though I spent more time at their other location further south and Beer quality was quite similar, overall I preferred this locality. It was more spacious, it was quieter and the variety offered was superior. Probably in my top-3 favorite US brewpubs.

Very good beers, very good pizza. The tasters were small, but I compensated by having 12 of them! I was there on a Sunday around lunch time. It was fairly crowded with people of all ages, but not overly hectic. I look forward to going back first chance I get. The two stouts I had were really excellent and their barleywine was the best I’ve had anywhere.

Arrived at Pizza Port after a short walk from the Coaster Station, where the security guard overheard where I was headed and stopped to give me directions and endorse the place. I met not one, but four of the brewers, one of whom was wearing a Stone’s t-shirt. Voluminous beer menu, great pizza, pleasant customers at the bar - I’m already planning a return trip the next time I am within 500 miles.
