First thing you notice when you belly up to the bar (each stool is a bag of grain over a keg) is how many taps they have. I had no idea Port/Lost Abbey had so many beers. They guys are excited to pour them, and rightfully so. Incredible brewery, with kick-ass beer and tons of it. Its a must stop if you are in the SD area.

If you have not been here, you are missing out. Pull us a sack of grain and enjoy all the awesome beers on tap. This is always a great stop after a hard day of work!

Was one of the nicest brewery visits back in 2006. As soon as the owner and staff realized we are foreigners to come here only to visit their brewery they treated us greatly (have never had an experience like this during all of our other brewery visits). They gifted us with T-Shirts, beers, ...... They have built their brewery on the old Stone premises and have two themes: Port Brewing - California type ales and beers as you can drink them also in the Pizza Port locations and secondly Lost Abbey which is specialized in Belgium style ales. Very good beers overall.

Best beer in the country! The brewer is creative and just when I think it canít get any better, they come out with a new beer that I love. Friendly staff and knowledgable patrons make for fun times.

Iíve been to The Lost Abbey many times, on weekends when the bar is open, during the week just to buy bottles but most memorably to their 5th anniversary party. Itís sometimes difficult to find a seat but thatís ok because you can walk around and see all the barrels and tanks. The selection is great as long as you are looking for Lost Abbey or Port Brewing beers, but they have everything they brew year round and many seasonal and special beers as well as a vintage bottle list. Prices are very good. You canít beat $1 4oz tasters of almost everything they have on tap. Older Viscosity will be more. Service is excellent. You do have to wait to get a drink sometimes but thatís because it can get very busy. The tour is awesome, just ask any bartender when the next one will start. Great place friendly people, stop by when in the area.

The temple of good craft beer, the sour ale like framboise de amorosa make the trip until there worthy. Port brewing Hop 15 can be paragonate to a divine hops nectar, what else can i add? go there and try yourself

My most amazing beer expiriance to date. I drove down from Los Angeles to pick up beer for a friend from the Patronís Isabella Release. I ended up arriving two hours early, but the door is open. I walk into the brewery and recognize the man behind the makeshift bar to be Tomme. He is there with an older couple from Arizona just chatting, and offers me a drink, which I readly exept. Basically over the next two hours I get to pester Tomme with questions and get a tour from him along with the older couple. Amazing expiriance and I was able to try some amazing Port/Abbey stuff that I would have probably never been able to try otherwise. All in all I was offered and excepted samples of: Moonlit sessions, Judgement Day, very fresh Wipeout, Amazing Grace, and Burbon Barrel angel share. Tomme and his crew are amazing people. This is beer lovers Nirvana.
