Stopped here for dinner and beer after making sales calls on a recent trip to San Diego. Located a couple blocks from the beach on a somewhat quiet street with a mix of businesses and residential buildings. Parking is on the street only and seems like it could be difficult at times, but we were pretty lucky and found a spot about a block away. Pretty large inside with basically one wide open room - brewery and bar on the left, kitchen straight ahead and the bulk of the room lined with picnic tables to form kind of a beachy feeling beer hall environment, communal seating type place. Bar is small with about 6-8 seats and also a small rail type area with a few more seats available. A giant 60ish" tv is behind the bar, the whole time playing crazy 40' wave type surfing video. Good selection of beers with a mix of Port's own house made beers and a good selection of guest beers mostly representing other CA breweries and of generally high quality. Service was fast...seemed like there was quite a bit of staff while we were there (especially for the small group of customers at the time, but it was early, so maybe it gets busier later). Hardly any wait to get a beer. Bartender was knowledgable and helpful with suggestions and let us sample several beers to help us find something to our liking. Pizza is surprisingly? good...a deeper dish type pizza that is quite filling but complemented the beer nicely. Crowd was a mix - mostly younger, 20 something locals seemingly from the neighborhood, a couple of families with young kids...basically, I was the oldest person there, probably by a good 10yrs, but never felt out of place or uncomfortable. Great place for a casual, low key meal and a couple of beers. Another place I'd definitely come back to.

The place is not small but it's not large either. When it's crowded you may have a hard time finding a seat. But the atmosphere is very chill, laid-back OB vibe which is nice. The service is friendly and I had no complaints. It's kind of a serve yourself as no one will come to your table to take your order.
The beer selection is by far one of the best. So many styles represented, and many different breweries to choose from.
The pizza was quite good. One of the better pizzas I've had in San Diego. And they have a gluten free option for those who are into that kind of thing. Prices were super reasonable. Definitely somewhere I'll be back.
