Visited 8.11.11 and previously in 2009.

Located on the main east-west drag in Carlsbad, IMO this is the epicenter of the Pizza Port brewing empire. More than capably manned by Jeff Bagby, King of SD-style IPAs, this is a must stop for the traveling BA.

The primary room features several communal picnic tables which would comfortably hold about 20-24 patrons and several smaller tables strewn about. A very family friendly environment. The brewing system is located to the left of the front door, with the main bar right behind it. The selection, of course, is top notch, featuring a number of choice guest taps (Dogfish Head, Stone, Victory) along with the killer house beers. My buddy and I shared a pitcher of Poor Man's DIPA, one of the best IPAs on the planet. Service at the bar was quick and attentive, he poured me a taste of a more esoteric offering when asked.

The main difference between the Carlsbad and San Clemente Pizza Port outposts is the pizza. Carlsbad is much superior, in large part due to the utilization of real pizza ovens, as opposed to the conveyor belts used at SC. Moreover, the crust was quite tasty. We had a vegetarian offering on whole wheat crust, and this was one of the best whole wheat pizzas I've had since BoJo's in the Colorado mountain town of Idaho Springs.

While the prices are a bit on the high side, the quality of the product is impecible. We were so smitten we ponied up $24 for a growler of Poor Man's for a weekend tasting. To be honest, while this doesn't have the atmosphere of the Stone garden area, I'd be a happy camper sitting here for an afternoon drinking Mr. Bagby's fine offerings. Highly recommended.

On a recent baseball and beer long weekend to SD (better luck next year Padres -ha!) I pursued an aggressive agenda of visiting as many breweries and brewpubs as possible. Thanks to my sister as our DD for 3 days, I was able to move from the city to mid-county to north county to east county in the alotted time. We only had time for one Pizza Port and as it was north county on Sunday, I chose Carlsbad for lunch. This was a really good choice. Just a few blocks from the beach and themed as a surfer bar, the place was really a large first rate family-friendly pub with high airy ceilings and the warm Pacific air blowing through. The house brews here on this day included this year's Anniversary Ale, a huge double IPA with a reduced pour size -- and after one I needed to reduce to something more all-day oriented. So by the time the absolutely killer pizza was ready I was well into the pub-only Poor Man IPA, huge floral hop head possibly citra and/or simcoe dry hopping. It's exactly what I crave for breakfast.
Watched the women's World Cup final first half while the place quickly filled with soccer fans. Had nice conversations with locals who just smiled and nodded when I commented on the greatness of their local pub and how deprived we are up in the Bay Area. "At least you have a good baseball team", one commented.

What an atmosphere! It accommodates both the kid and the adult (or at times, the kid in the adult :). Surf boards everywhere hanging, pictures, brewery stickers, and photos advocating the surfer in each person. A cheers is heard everywhere, Laughs, Smiles, and the place is full of great people!

Quality... Well.. They poured their beers into chilled glasses... I asked and they didn’t have any unchilled so I didn’t bother but this could have done something to these beer’s characteristics. I thought it was good either way.

Service. Wow! Talking about helping yourself! I loved it though! Gave me time to look at both the Beer Menu and the Food Menu. They of course clean your tables but you have to walk to get your own beer, soda, food, and tokens for arcade games.

Selection. Can I start will saying excellent without having any detail? Over 40 beers on tap and half of them were guest taps. They did a great job of letting you know with the magnetic signs up above the bar to which were available in Glass/Pitcher as well. Perfect set up and presentation!

The food was good but nothing better than a neighborhood Chuck E Cheese. Enjoyed the wings, Hawaiian Pizza, and Pepp. Pizza and when it came down to it, I felt like I could have made it myself!

It was all very cheap and the beer had fantastic pricing! I’m excited to come back here again and next time check out their Bottle Shop in Carlsbad!

This was the first stop of a San Diego brewery tour. We parked in the back, and they had just opened for lunch, so there was only 4 other people in the place when we walked in.

Upon walking in, the space is pretty impressive. Large vaulted ceilings, wood tables, bar, with surf boards hanging from the ceiling. Some island and water art on some of the counters and walls, along with some old black white surfer photo's round out the atmosphere.

Beer selection was also very good, I think 24 taps, maybe more. Ordered a Sticky stout, and a Knight rider. Pizza was very tasty, and really hit the spot. Reasonable prices as well.

Not really anything bad to say about the place, but have to give a slight ding for service. Everyone there was cool and friendly though, and it's not that any of the service was bad, but the place is practically like a Shakey's (but WAY better food AND beer) You order up front, pay, and you self pick up to take to your table, be that food or beer. So in terms of service, it's not as though your being 'waited" on like a restaurant. Not a bid deal this trip, since there were no lines, but on a busy night, I can for see long lines at the bar. With that said, everyone had a smile, and things were smooth.

Great time though, good food, drinks, decor, in a spacious, comfortable, and laid back place.

Awesome little place in what looks like a typical surf town. Drove down from Long Beach after a couple of recommendations to do so. Glad I did. Atmosphere was nothing short of perfect. Lots of people scattered around but plenty of places still to sit. Service was great with both bartenders very accomodating. Met a nice local at the bar who was friendly and offered some good recommendations. Food was good. Ordered a Roma pizza and couldn't finish it all. Got a take home box for tomorrow's breakfast. Beer selection was long and extensive. I only ordered a couple of brews from Pizza Port. Had a $3 pale ale pint on special. Overall my bill came to a little over $20. Not bad for 2 beers and a pizza.

Excellent place to visit and glad to have checked it out.

I've been to this place a fair amount of times and I'm always pretty impressed by the quality of their beer and the guest beers they're able to get on tap. I was just there last night and they managed to get a cask of Three Floyds' Topless Wytch in. While it may not have been Three Floyds' best, it's the first time I have ever seen a Three Floyds beer on tap in the state. If the beer isn't enough, the pizza here is absolutely incredible. I love this place. Hoping to move very close to here soon.

I went in for a light lunch on a sunday afternoon and then I headed over to the bottle shop. Pizza Port Carlsbad's speciality is Pizza so I got a small pizza and split one half with my dad. I was expecting a sit down and have a waiter come by so I was pretty surprised when I walked in and had the line almost to the door and watching people order then go find a seat. The bar and the kitchen are separate so when you order food you go and stand in the line for the drinks. I didn't get any beer since I just came from Green Flash and just wanted water. I had to wait a little while for the pizza since it was busy but when the pizza came it was worth the wait. I wanted some Mongo but I didn't see it on the list. Next time I'm down that way I'm going to get a beer. My only complaint is that you have to wait in the line for the food then in another line for drinks so when it's busy you're waiting a while but everyone was kind.

Casual, fun vibe. Great pizza with a good selection of toppings. Love Port's beers, too, and they always have a good selection of guest beers on tap. Haven't made it for lunch but they have a bitchin' special: pizza + salad + beer for $6 or something ridiculous.

I've had problems with one jerky bartender - he's fluctuated on the scale between ok and rude - but aside from him everybody seems cool and overall the service is decent. (Granted, there's no table service, but you know.) Definitely a place I'll go out of my way to visit.

Pizza Port Carlsbad is one room that is very open with tall ceilings. The bar is on the left, with two boards showing the tap options above it. The food service is straight back. The middle of the room has long communal tables, which take up most of the space. Around those tables are a few smaller tables.

The whole place has a laid back beach vibe to it, which I liked. Lots of surfboards and surfing-type things decorate the walls and hang from the ceiling.

There is no table service here, although both the bartender and the man who took orders at the counter were friendly. Every few minutes a new name will be called to signify that their food is ready.

The pizza port beers (of which there are about 20) would be good for a production brewery, which means they are very good for a brewpub. The other beers, which number about 15, are focused on mostly CA breweries, with a few West Coast brews thrown in along with a couple of Belgians.
I probably would have given the selection a bump if the bottle shop were open for lunch, but it is not, and so my grade is based on the taps only!

I really liked the pizza here. My friend and I got one of the specialty pizzas with lots of veggies and home made bacon. Damn was that bacon good.

This place shines in the price department. Ours beers were 4.50, and the pizza (with about 7 toppings) was 19. I'm really glad I stopped here, and if you want a beach atmosphere with good beer and good food at good prices, then stop here.

Stopped in here while visiting San Diego and frinds in Carlsbad. We walked in on a Thursday night to a very busy place full of patrons, ranging from families with kids in tow to tables of military haning out and drinking beer. We had already eaten so we made for the beer line. Standing in line there is a beer board that shows all of Pizza Port Carlsbad beers and then another list of local CA beers. I opted to grab a Hop Suey and my friends grabbed a pitcher. We found out way to an empty table and sat down. The atmosphere was cool and very active. Bummed I didn't get to try any food as it looked and smelled great. The staf was decently friendly. I'd like to go back and visit again.

Right on a main thoroughfare in Carlsbad Village you can find this stellar brew-pub.

Boasting a long bar, high ceilings, a few HDTV's, and a plethora of wooden tables, this place has a comfortable and friendly atmosphere that attracts a large variety of people. Additionally this place is very clean which is always a plus.

The rotation of Pizza Port taps keeps the selection fresh, and there is always something interesting on the guest taps. Additionally it is the quality and selection of the beers served here that really makes this place shine.

As far as pizza is concerned, which is the only food I can comment upon, it's definitely good but nothing amazing. Price wise this place hits a sweet spot that remains competitive, averaging $5 for a beer and around $20 for a large pizza.

Overall, Pizza Port Carlsbad is definitely one of the best brew-pubs I have spent money at. If you are looking for some high quality beer and good pizza to soak up the alcohol, you would be hard pressed to find a place nearly as good for the price.

I did a comprehensive brewpub/beer bar/beer store tour of San Diego over a three-day weekend in mid October - all the highest rated BA establishments.

The short version is that I've been to 201 brewpubs/breweries and Pizza Port is tied with Russian River for the two best (no house sours at PP but better guest tap list). It's one of the few brewpubs that I found difficult to leave and found myself returning on the way back north to LA at the end of my trip. Fittingly, it was my first and last stop of the tour.

In fact, I liked it so much that I also stopped in at PP Ocean Beach (2nd place) and PP Solana Beach (3rd place).

Positives from my notes...
Laid back beach vibe.
Tall ceilings and big windows.
Exposed brewing equipment behind the bar.
24 house taps including two on cask
14 guest taps (Sierra Nevada, Ballast Point, Kasteel Browerij, Green Flash and Great Divide)
The overall beer selection was exceptional.
Food was very good (I ate at the OB location but it seems all the same).
Ability to buy half pints (and pitchers of non high gravity beers)
Friendly people/locals at the bar.

Some of the house beers I had were: Plant to pint wet hop, Whambo IPA, Revelations golden ale, dry Irish Cow stout, cask sticky stout with cocoa nibs.

If I had to reach for a drawback it's that because they don't have table service, the announcement of names for food being ready is pretty loud and happens often.

I provided a review for their bottle shop. In short, with all the beer people this place attracts, it may be hard to find anything unique or in limited supply at the bottle shop.

Summary: Is it a family pizza joint or a world class brewpub? Who cares, the beer and food are both very likeable, even if the frenetic kids aren't.

Stopped in on a Wednesday night and the place was starting to fill up at 4:30. First time to any of the PP locations. Parking lot in back was full, so I parked in the public lot diagonal from the place. Judging by how full the lot was, and the availability of on street parking, I'd guess that you'd have a rough time finding anything on a busy night. Turn with your back to the bar and the atmosphere is big beach pizza joint. Lots of families with kids. Turn 180 degrees and you're in a top notch brew pub. Lots of (what appears to be) local regulars. A bit on the loud side, but it's a big place with high ceilings. Counter service, well done with knowledgeable staff and samples on request, but still counter service. A few dozen taps, around half of which were PP brews. A nice variety, as well. Should make any beer geek happy. Food was inexpensive and tasty. My one beef is that there are limited choices for one. Smallest pizza was 10", which is more than I can eat. I'm not a wing or cheese stick person, so I wound up with a Caeser salad (hugh, great croutons, and not drowned in dressing) and a Portzel (pretzel with garlic, sundried tomatoes, and feta - very good and only 1.50). Food and 2 beers set me back $20 before tip. Overall, it was a very good experience and worth a second trip.

Note: Free wifi available with limited places to plug in.

My most recent trip to SoCal I decided to stay in Carlsbad. Pizza Port was a few blocks away. I neglected to check out reviews before I went, so I didn't know what to expect.

It's a 'must' if you're anywhere close. It's perfect for an 'after Stone' or 'after Lost Abbey' stop before heading back to SD proper. The pizza was very good and the beer was fantastic. Sitting at the bar was the best plan, but if you have your family you will be welcome and comfortable as well.

It's a bit chaotic, but the selection is pretty wide (15ish taps) with beers of all types. Hoppy, roasty, sour, whatever you want, they can get it to you on tap. I could have spent nearly my entire trip here and at the attached bottle shop.

Service was ok, but the knowledge of the beers brought it up a tick. They get pretty busy, so be prepared to flag down your bartender before you're empty.

Loved it.

The past few times I have been to Pizza Port in Carlsbad I have been very dissatisfied with their service (Most recently in the past week). I have been treated rudely by the bartenders even when the place isn't busy. They seem to have people working there who don't value their customers very much. They make and sell great beer, but I can think of many other places who do the same in San Diego County. I know that they get lots of business year round, but they don't have to stop treating customers well. I don't think I will be going back there again or bringing friends from out of town to Pizza Port.

Ah one of many Meccas. Cool surf vibe, like all Pizza Port's, picnic benches throughout, industrial fridge and brewing equipment as well. Stickers all over everything. Suh-weet.

Always the largest variety of their own brews, as well as an impressive selection of guest taps. I mean, super rare sometimes. The pizza is always delicious, some of my favorite in the country, easily top dog on the West Coast or anywhere that makes beer. The bottle shop next door doesn't hurt. Patio is cool, nothing exceptional, the place is on the main drag, which is always nice from a convenience of finding the place viewpoint, its right off the I-5. Watch out though if you're directionally challenged, you can still miss it.

Service is ok. Its always busy, so what can you do (other than hire more employees).

My detailed notes say that I was here on F, 17 July 2009 as part of my visit with my cousin and his wife in support of The Beer Pest column in the current (June/July 2010) issue of Ale Street News. Who am I to disagree?

A day at the beach, courtesy of The Coaster, a local privately-owned light rail system that dropped me off a scant few blocks away. Pizza Port (Carlsbad) sat on the corner of Carlsbad Village Drive and Roosevelt Street. The entry, overhung with a striped canopy, was in the center, with the brewhouse in the left-facing window.

The wood bar, fronted by Captain's chairs, began just to the left of the doorway and continued snaking its way around to the far left side of the building. A cooler with ice cream and sorbets (!) sat in the centerline, followed by a short, wooden dividing wall which separated the bar area from the restaurant area and with its own series of Captain's chair seating. Continuing on the left side, beyond the brewhouse and behind the bar, was the entrance to the cooler, followed by the first bank of taps, a glass door to access chilled glassware, another set of taps and another glass door. A pair of stainless steel boards were mounted above the glass doors and second set of taps and detailed "Beers Brewed Here" on the left side and "Guest Beers" on the right side. The far left wall housed the pizza (and salad) kitchen.

Over on the restaurant side, picnic tables were the norm. The theme on this side was surfing - boards in the overhead, murals along the counter, portraits on the walls. Also in the restaurant area, against the right wall, were a series of video games.

Beers: Fourteen (14) house - Port Van Porter; Palapa Pale Ale; Great American Brown; Wipeout IPA; Carlsbad Cream Ale; Carlsbad Chronic; California Honey; None the Weisser; Revelations; Night Rider Imperial Stout; Borough Market Bitter; State Beach Blonde; Poor Man's [D]IPA; and Party Pants Pilsner.

Cask: Parabola Pale Ale

Guests: Twenty-eight (28) plus a guest cask.

Service: I am always reluctant to mention my server's physical qualities, but I was struck by my heavily tattooed slip of a woman and this coming from a short-statured guy with thirteen tattoos of his own. Hers were much more traditional than mine and included her back, chest and knuckles. Zounds! Very friendly, personable, helpful and attentive - all good qualities in a server.

Shopping: Work shirt, growler, and stickers. Perfect!

This place was huge with seating all over the place. It was packed with little kids and families to the brim. You could still get beers in a timely fashion, but you should order the pizza first as it may take a little time. The beer is really good, but the atmosphere was too much for me with so many people around and it was so loud, so I'd suggest going for lunch if you're like me. I like the back open area pretty well because it had more air and it was a little less crowded, but it was still lacking in seating with so many people. So, overall I loved the pizza and the beer, but the atmosphere wasn't as good for me.

We arrived right when it opened on a Monday and it was pretty chill with the World Cup on. I was very excited to see the Poochie still on tap and got a nice pour although the bartender seemed a bit unenthusiastic about his job. The pizza is INCREDIBLE. Wow! Taplist otherwise was very good and there were probably 6 can't miss beers on there. The space inside was nice and would probably be a fun place to spend a night watching sports and hanging out. Overall I think the Pizza Ports are highlights of the SoCal beer scene.

I'd previously only been to the Solana Beach Pizza Port. This one seems quite a bit bigger - almost a bit too spacious and bright inside. However, it has a good sized outdoor patio, which is my complaint about the Solana Beach one. Their standard bench-style seating, with a small bar.

Beer selection, quality, and food are all really good and on par with the other locations. Great pizzas, great salads, and great beer - lots of their own brews, plus some others.

The service wasn't quite as friendly as it could be, but still nice. Granted, it was on a Saturday afternoon and a bit busy too. Also, not sure if it was a fluke or because of the time we were there, but there were a bunch of mid-20s rich-kid loser d-bags getting drunk and being annoying as hell! It was rather distracting and frustrating.

This can be a stressful stop if you come here during peak hours. All seating is first come first serve and you can see people hovering around like vultures waiting for people to get up and leave. The service is average... basically just moving the line along and flinging pizza at people. The bar tenders are more attentive and are happy to answer questions and get tasters for you.

The Pizza is great, better than any take-out place in the area and they have nice toppings. My usual is whole grain beer crust with pesto sauce, tomatoes, sausage, and garlic. GREAT with a nice IPA.

Beer: very nice selection of guest beers with the usual showing of San Diego breweries and usually some from Russian River, Avery etc. the real draw is the house beers. IPA heaven, and usually a couple stouts and Belgian styles. Two hand pumps serving cask conditioned ales. Pints, pitchers, and growlers.

This is a great place to go with a small group mid weekend afternoon or a week night. If you go fri/sat night be prepared to cut-throat some table space. Don't forget to check the outdoor patio and you may not be aware that you can eat your pizza in the bottle shop too... *taps nose* *winkwink* Be ready to wade though a mess of surfers, Marines, and birthday parties to get your beer on at Pizza Port Carlsbad.

Arrive at Pizza Port for your first time on a Fri/Sat and you might be overwhelmed. It will be packed and the seating is first come, first serve. If you don't have a large group, you'll probably be meeting some new friends as you share a table. The atmosphere is very laid back, expected of the Carlsbad community. The line at the bar and the line to order food routinely intertwine. The pizza is very good, but my favorite are the beer buddies. Mainly your seasoned bread sticks, they of course go hand in hand! Carlsbad Pizza Port is my favorite Pizza Port, they brew beer on site and have beers you can't find any where else. My favorite is the Carlsbad Cronic and is a must if you make it down here.

Great selection of house and guest taps on my visit, including a few excellent offerings from Russian River. I had hoped for more of the unique Port beers to justify the drive up here but the good ones were also available at top beer bars in San Diego.

I like the order and sit approach since it's so hard to get service anywhere. Their speaker could be louder so you can actually hear your name being called. Beer bread "beer buddies" were tasty, and our pizza had a great crust with numerous fresh tasting toppings.

Bartender was fairly patient with my questions and a couple samples before selecting my pints. Prices are reasonable for SoCal.

No doubt I'll return, but likely only if they're offering more special stuff on tap here that I don't see in San Diego.

I really dug this place. A perfect beach pizza shop. Industrial, high ceilings, open windows and doors with a great ocean breeze wafting in. Smokin' hot bartender with some sexy ass tats. All the brews were high quality. Had a Trigger Hoppy Belgian IPA which was great. Not the biggest selection but there was plenty to drink. Selection was fast and friendly, and did I mention she was smokin' hot? Prices were fine and the pizza looked pretty cheap. Didn't eat but it looked great and if it's anything like Solana beach's food then I'm sure it was very tasty, too.

Went here on a Sat. and from reading previous reviews i was pleasantly surprised to see no line for Pizza or Beer, The tables were pretty crowded, but we were able to find a spot no problem.

The beers i ordered were a SN Brown Ale, and Alpine Nelson. I didn't get any Pizza Port beers but I have no doubt they would have been nothing short of exceptional.

The pizza was large and it was among the best pizzas that i have ever had. The dough was so soft and it smelled and tasted as if only the finest of pizza ingredients were used.

It was an absolute delight to visit this place, and I will surely do so every time i'm in the area.
