This place is very casual in appearance and looks a bit rustic with warn furniture and wooden benches. When I arrived it was late afternoon, there were only a few people there. The employees did not seem to be very happy being there - but then again they were not directly unfriendly. Because I wanted to taste as many as possible of the 20+ beers on tap, I asked for a "half pint"; the bartender looked like I had just asked him to poke out his eyes and join a Satan worshipping cult! After phoning his boss and confirming if it was possible, I was served my half pint of Dawn Patrol mild, which were brilliant. As the evening progressed, and the place got busier, the people behind the bar defrosted a bit, however.

Pink Floyd where played, which automatically gives extra points on the ambiance, but interrupting it all the time, with the PA, announcing which dishes are ready to be picked up, nullifies that credit somewhat. The beer selection is great, with 14 of their own beer on tap - which all of the ones I tasted were good to excellent. The quest beers are pretty good too, and I enjoyed the Alpine Pure Hoppiness tremendously.

I cant say much about the food, as I only ordered a "portzel", which they claim is a pretzel. It is not. It was just normal bread - but pretty good anyway. It is a place that I would recommend for the beer, and nothing else.

I've spent many hours drinking some great brews at the port. Excellent selection of in-house and guest brews. Typically pour a full range of beer styles on draft, including many great seasonals. Their guest list usually includes selections from Bear Republic, Green Flash, Alesmith, Stone and Craftsman. The pizza is also quite good...very chewy crust and copious amounts of toppings. The attentiveness of the bartenders ranges from excellent to aloof. Overall one of the best brewpubs in San Diego (and quite possibly California).

This place is awesome. Not only do they have an amazing selection of brews that keeps rotating on a regular basis, but they have great pizza too. The atmosphere is unique too, in that its just a basic bare bones pizzaria, complete with self-service, picnic tables, and video games. My only real major complaint is that all of the beers are served in pint glasses. The beer is fantastic, but its hard to fully appreciate it to the fullest when its served up with poor barware. I understand the cost savings and Iíd rather have it taken out of the glassware than out of the beer, but really - I find myself brining home growlers of the stuff simply to retaste it from the proper glassware. Hmm... maybe thats their strategy.... Anyway, an amazing place - I make the two hour drive down just to visit on a regular basis because its that good. The best beer of any microbrewery I have visited to date.

I visited Pizza Port - Solana Beach a few times in the past, and I thought I rated it right after the first trip. Guess not. I mustíve held off on rating the place because it seems to be the San Diego areaís go-to brewpub destination and I guess I didnít feel a need to weigh in. The beer and food here are spectacular, and Pizza Portís popularity is well-deserved. However, that popularity also brings a lot of squares, douches, and families to the place, which makes finding a seat a danged nightmare most of the time. The GF and I were here on the night of the Holiday Bowl, and the crowd really ruined the experience for us. Iíd love to hit Pizza Port on an off night to kick back and actually enjoy its awesome tap selection.

While living in the infamy of bigger brothers, itís still not a bad place to check out. A bit too trendy (area), but as to be expected, good food and decent beer when I was there, cheers..

My favorite pizza port. Always nice when you used to bump into Tommee before he moved up the ladder even more. Great brews and pizza

Great surfer bar. Nice place to grab a pizza and a beer. Small place and draft list on my visit was disappointing. Not much on tap, house and guest list. But, the pizza was outstanding. Friendly and helpful staff.

Cool spot in SB to go for lunch and an eye-full of beautiful women dressed in beach gear. Greg and Yiga brew some truly incredible beers out of this little joint. Picnic tables on the outside are sweet and a bit quieter than the inside. Vid games in back, gets mad hectic during luch sometimes. Iíve visited here many times and got to enjoy some guru, sharkbite, ipaís, good shit from the two madmen brewers! Pizzaís are bomb and they usually come out pretty quick. Nice place to be, right next to the sweet pacific ocean~

The staff, patrons and location make me feel like I am stuck in fast Times at Ridgemont High, but being a stoneís throw from the beach what do you want. That being said there beers are bad ass, right across the board. Shark attack being my absolute favorite followed by the Hasselhoff Weizenbock. Itís been a bit since Iíve had the pleasure but when i find myself in so-cal this is a must stop for me. Oh yeah their guest beers are always on point too, I love when brew pubs have the sack to serve stuff from other breweries. Pizza is what it is, it fills me up so I can keep on drinking!
