No idea how I could have missed reviewing this place in the several dozen trips here. Most recently visited on April 27, 2013.

The beer is usually good, never bad but not always amazing. As with all Pizza Ports they do hoppy well. Ryan (the newest brewer) did a beer a coffee stout a while back that was very good for the style. Not sure if they make it anymore since it was made by the old brewer but the IPL / Claudieís Lager was really good and Iíd drink that every time I went if it was available. They usually have a few guest beers as well but those are pretty random and normally not anything I really care to drink (with the occasional exception of Pliny or Blind Pig).

The food is always good here, however fattening. Eat here, drink here, and walk to the beach from here. Complaints include food taking forever to get made, the place being packed, and the setting sun blasting you while you try to eat, oh and the food is not cheap.

Visited at lunchtime on 17th July 2014. Bar and brewing equipment one end, a mirrored wall and benches the other end, in between there is a spiral staircase with the kitchen and food counter behind it. Fading whitewashed walls and red tiled floor. Upstairs is a smaller bar and more tables and seating, a car park on the roof. Out front are two covered patio areas. Mixed bunch of customers, with noisy children arriving in droves just after we arrived. Shannon was the bar lady and she poured me two flights and wrote down the beers for me, pleasant and helpful. Beer and food in great shape, 14 of their own in house brews on tap with 14 more guests, 1 cask offering. I liked the vibe of the place, could have done without all the children but otherwise a very good beer venue.

Beer selection is the winning formula here. Great beachside atmosphere with very good pizza and salads. Only minor issues include noise (difficult to have a conversation) due to kids in bar and need to add a beer server to alleviate cue times.

We visited the first time on 4.1.2014. I am a big Pizza Port fan and love their other 3 places as well. This brewpub is located in the beautiful San Clemente. You can enter the pub from two different levels, a nice bar upstairs. Walking down to the lower level you can see the great brewhouse. Downstairs you have a great view to the sea, especially beautiful during sunset. The bar is located directly in front of the brewhouse, which gives a great beer ambiente. Beers are great as in all Pizza Ports. Pizzas can be ordered at a separate counter. Compared to Carlsbad this pub is smaller and also a bit louder. Slightly prefer Carlsbad, however love this pub as well.

Pizza needs work. Ceasar salad is good. I loved the beers. This is a Hop forward joint.

Well, the brewpub doesnít look much good, but it was sort of nice in there anyway. Quite a few exiting beers on tap, both their own and guest, and also quite a few rather boring ones. Not much service, but friendly what was there. A quite nice place, but not worldclass.

Very cool beach town brewpub! Most of the Pizza Port locations can be classified as such, but you really canít overstate how awesome it is to spend a day at the beach and then saunter over in your flip flops to a world class brewpub. Stellar! Great beers on tap. Very good pizza. Vacation destination at itís best. Cheers!

We stopped by this Pizza Port location as we were doing a self guided beer tour of California. Nick was the man behind the bar and he made sure we were well taken care of. We had 2-3 samples in front of us at all times until we had sampled their whole line up of beers. The pizza was great. This was a great stop for us.

Not sure whats not to love here, odd double bar, pick up counter layout with surf boards and picnic tables a plenty.. good house beer, good guest taps, reasonable prices 10-20 dollars for varying size pizzas, bartender was willing to chat beer and be friendly, parking was no problem thanks to some great local tips. I really enjoyed it, the only thing to push this from an 80ís joint to a 90ís would be samplers of house beer in legit sample size glasses, not 2oz ones.

Maybe this one is not the best but is the only one that i visited two times during my stay, loved it cause i think there is nothing like surfing in San clemente and then have a beer and a slice of pizza! The girl at the bar was very friendly and i bought a growler that i finished on the sea! For sure iíll be back as soon as possible!!!
