This was one of my favorite stops on my SD trip. Even if beer isnt on the agenda the food is very good. A good tap selection of Pizza Port brews and a few other local micros. A small place with a good atmosphere. A must visit
This place was kind of freaky. I had lots of difficulty finding the place to order the beer and figuring out what the hell they had on tap. Pair this with special needs kids running around making awkward noises and saying awkward things, and it was quite a weird experience. The brewer Tomme was there and is a nice guy. He trusted me enough to ask me to deliver some Goldings to the brewer at Oggis in Vista. For this favor, he gave me a bottle of Mother of All Beers. I didn’t care for the appearance of this place. Indoor picnic tables and dark lighting with 80s arcade games in the back, Just seemed kinda tacky to me. The beers on tap were nothing overly special. Pizza was decent.
Pizza was quite tasty as was the beer. After eating I wandered around the beach for a few hours. Definetly a good time!!

SoCal beach crowd casual ambiance. Great pizza aroma. Good selection of guest and house brews and some bottled to go beers. Really good grub and grog, but I can’t believe Tomme can produce such world class brews in the worlds smallest "Micro" brewery.

I just realized that I hadn’t rated this place yet.
This is a tiny little pizza joint w/ a killer selection of beers on tap (and some for sale in bottles).
Their selection of Pizza Port beers is slightly better than their Carlsbad location and much better than San Clemente. They had 750ml bottles for sale of their Dubbel & their Imperial Stout. Those will disappear quickly.
The pizza is very good. Parking a bit of a challenge. If you’re in the area, you should hit this place up.
Stopped by here on the way to San Diego from LA. Typical looking pizza place. Lots of TVs. Good pizza. OK beers on tap @ the time. I was expecting more from the beer, but hey, the Real Ale Fest may prove me wrong.
Spent the afternoon here with Tomme Arthur, so my comments might be a bit biased. The feel is the same as the Carlsbad location, except in a smaller, more homey feeling. The standard pub beers are very good, Swami’s IPA being my standout, but what makes this place special are Tomme’s unique Belgian-style creations, world-beaters in every case. This man is doing incredible things and will put his mark on the brewing world I am sure if he gets a bit more exposure. The pizza is as marvelous as other PPorts which is why I recommend you have a meal here. You’ll be able to have more beer!! And please, do not be afraid to pay the 10$ or 12$ for the 750ml bottles they sell here. There is an enormous chance that you will be buying one of the rarest, soon-to-be international superstars...

The smaller but slightly better cousin of Pizza Port - Carlsbad. The selection of beer seemed a little smaller than at Carlsbad, but the quality of the beers they had was better. Lot’s of high abv stuff the day I was there. I only had three beers during lunch and ended up with a killer hangover by the end of the day. The atmosphere is generally the same, plenty of tv’s and games to go around. The pizza is great; I still like Pizza Port’s Pizza better than any other pizza I have had in So-Cal.
