Typically my beer odyssies involve me, my girlfriend or some combination of friends; but this time it involved the girlfriend and her family. On our way down to San Diego (my first time( I made sure that we had lunch at this particular Pizza Port location.
The location doesn't initially strike me as a beer destination. The restaurant seems like a great place for families to bring their kids for dynamite pizza while parents can knock back a few pints. The crowd was a mix of mostly families and 20 somethings and beach town dweller types and hesher types. Not what I imagined, but I went with it.
The beer selection was pretty awesome. Not being a noob to the Pizza Port offerings I was really glad to see few brews that are widely available in 22oz form. I tried their Yakima Wet Hop cask IPA which was PHENOMENAL, and I mooched some of my ladies heff which was also very good. I was also surprised to see a separate menue of guest taps, including Fat Head's Rye Ale, which was also really good. The fam weren't the biggest beer drinkers, so I was limited to two pints (but I later got more Port beer at Hamilton's a few nights later).
The pizza was also great. I had something with a wheat crust, which I didn't expect to be as good as it was.
Overall this place was pretty fucking rad. If I lived in the area it would be a go-to for sports nights. Pick up a few pies, a growler and I'd be good to go.
