We stopped by for a barrel-aged beer event, and they had I think 47 different beers on tap on the very large back patio. Huge tap system, looked like it had been brought in for the event. Great selection, including some 3-F, an unexpected surprise. The crowd was laid back and friendly even though it was crowded. The staff was friendly during the event, but then turned pushy as they ushered us to the exits at 5 minutes past 5 when the event closed down. Still worth a stop, however.

busy Friday afternoon visit. 12-15 taps including a half-dozen guest beers. decent quality, small pours available, samples aplenty. the chicken wings were godawful and the pizza looked pedestrian.

Been here dozens of times over the past 5 years. Lots of house beers on tap (including some from other Pizza Port locations) and usually a fair amount of guest taps as well.

The food is always good, the beer is almost always good, the service is hit and miss. Usually its not an issue since you have to stand in the massive line for anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes to get served so you probably wont be making much small talk when you get to the front anyway.

Atmosphere is great. Lots of seating. Interesting mix of families, regular bar goers, and drunkards. Next door is the bottle shop which is convenient.

Prices are good, except growler fills.

This is a dual review for both the brewpub and the bottleshop next door. The bottleshop: The shop is a small place, but there is quite a bit of beer there. I grabbed a few things (Achel, Brew Dog Punk IPA, Lost Abbey Lost And Found, and a Pliny the Elder just because it was so fresh). I would have liked to grab a few other things, but I had already spent way too much money at the other breweries. I found a few things that I don’t often see in other places, but a lot of the beers I can find at Lone Hill and Walnut Liquorette, so I was not "totally blown away", I guess you could say. But, if you aren’t as fortunate as I am to have great bottle shops by you, then this place will be your wet dream. Some of the prices are a bit high, but I guess you pay a bit of a premium for the selection. The brewpub: A typical pizza joint. You walk up to the counter and order your food and then (try) to find a place to sit. The place is generally packed and fairly loud, but with good reason. The beer list is, of course, long and full of great choices. I personally had an Alpine Duet and my girlfriend had a Fox Barrel Cider. They have plenty of guest breweries (obviously) and do growler fills. The service is good, but nothing special. You pick up your food from the counter (expected), and the bartenders are pretty quick and generally friendly. The pizza is the best of the food items (again, expected). Some very interesting pizzas, and very good tasting. If you’re in the area, I would definitely recommend stopping in for some pizza and beer, and then head next door to the bottle shop for a great selection.

Dinner stop. I really wanted to try BA Night Rider during my visit. Pretty neat place with ample seating and a full tap list of both PP brews and guest taps. Prices are reasonable, and the pizza is excellent. Definitely worth a stop while in SoCal.

The setup of this Pizza Port is pretty much identical to the Ocean Beach location, but without the proximity to the ocean. Pretty much everything was of extremely high quality from what we sampled. Pizza was kickass, with a lot of variety, veggie / vegan options, as well as salads if you don’t want pizza. Service was quite good - nothing amazing. Prices are normal. Worth a stop if in the area, but there’s nothing really different about this location compared to the Ocean Beach location.

I was not as impressed with this Pizza Port location as some of the others, this one seeming smaller and cramped. The service was OK but not spectacular, and the beer selection seemed standard and uninspiring. I am sure the pizza/food is fine as it is in all of the other locations.

Top draw establishment a few blocks (5 mins walk) from Carlsbad Village station (Amtrak/Coaster). PP Carlsbad is a medium sized venue filled largely with picnic and high bench seating and room for 15/16 folks around the bar where I Settled down for a 2 hour tickathon. Couldnt believe how busy this joint was for 1215 on a Monday, perhaps only 40% full but not many spare tables. 40 beers on tap, 21 of their own (4 beer taster =$7) plus 17 guest taps (not available in tasting flights). PP house beers are solid, nothing top world class IMHO but the consistency is high, all weighing in at 3.5/3.6/3.7 for me on average. Service was good, bar only, I just kept slipping the guy pieces of paper with my tasters of 4 scribbled on them. Guest beers included offerings from Left Coast, Alpine, Societe and others. The pizza was top draw, fluffy dough, juicy toppings (pepporoni, artichoke and olives), great stuff, set pizzas or create your own. Warning - I had hoped to combine this visit with a trip to the bottle shop but they didnt open till 5pm, i imagine this is different at weekends! Overall a top notch venue - you Dont need a car to visit if based in SD, 50 minute train ride for $11 return.

Fantastic spot. Lively and friendly with an insanely good tap list featuring both house beers and other top rate breweries. The value is decent and you can get four-beer flights. The quality of the Pizza Port beers is generally high, especially on the IPAs and strong stouts. A must-visit place in Carlsbad. Get here.

Visited a few different times during a week long vacation in Carlsbad, early June 2011. The setup was the same as the Solana Beach location I visited 2 years previous. Tap selection was pretty broad, 10-12 Pizza Port taps, about the same number of guests. Super fresh, good service at the bar. Pizza was good, nice outdoor seating section. This spot seemed a bit better for younger kids, which I have. Good mix of people, everyone happy to be drinking great beer.

88 = ★★★★ (best in area, a must for locals and visitors)

I only use the total score, not the component parts.
