Perhaps the best beer experience I have ever had. No joke! Strolled in here on a Monday at lunch time with my wife, sat at the bar, ordered up two pizzas and life was good.

Atmosphere was cool,m laid back, chill and relaxing. Servers were all cool. Dan at the bar was just AWESOME!

Quality..its Port so Yeah it was really good.

Service. Dan was on top of it and really knew his beer stuff to. Not only was smart on beer but the local scene and he was just a bad ass. We really liked him and thanked him alot. He convinced the bottle shop to open 5 hours ealry so that we can go visit. Now thats cool.

Selection was top notch. They had Double Doroado, Ten Fidy, Top Sail, Victory At Sea, Frankenwine, Kaiser and much much more!
Pizza wa awesome and the Portzel was really good too.

Value was reasonable. This is a must! Best beer bar/brewpub I have ever visited south of Seattle!

I absolutely loved this place. We dont have many of these places on the East Coast, nor many places with such an impressive selection of taps.

That atmosphere was great, very lively, open, fun friendly kind of place. Seating was very casual at picnic tables. The mother in law didnt like it, but she really doesnt like much of anything that isnt in New Jersey and doesnt have white tablecloths.

The draught selection was awesome. I went there twice out of my 3 days in Carlsbad just to try some more. There were about 12 or so Pizza Port brews and just as many brews from local CA brewers...also Alaskan Barleywine, which was awesome. I was fortunate to have the plant to pint IPA which was incredibly fresh. About 5 or 6 out of 12 Pizza Port taps were IPAs.

The food was great, pizza awesome actually. Wings were awesome too, but a bit soggy bc theyre baked not fried.

And the staff was super friendly, helpful, etc. It was very nice to see such a place with a big West Coast personality. you certainly dont see that in Baltimore.

Without a doubt, this is my favorite brewpub in all of Southern California. I have not been to the Pizza Port in Solana Beach (I can't believe I haven't) because some say the Solana Beach brewpub is even better than Carlsbad. That's hard to believe. Every beer I've tried here I rate from good to excellent. They even have some high quality guest beers on tap, such as Ballast Point IPA and HopTown IPA. The pizza is very good, fairly inexpensive and they serve it in large portions. Surfboards on the ceiling give you a real California beach city ambiance. Keep your eyes open because you sometimes see celebrities here. Recently I saw Tony Hawk enjoying a pizza with his family, and a few years ago I saw Rick Pitino, basketball coach for University of Louisville, enjoying a takeout. Pizza Port is also home to the annual San Diego Strong Ale Festival in December. This place is a must if you are in the San Diego area.

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.

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!

I finally got to check this place out and it did not disappoint. Located on the main drag in Carlsbad. Large dining area inside as well as several tables outside to enjoy the great SoCal weather.

You order the beer at a separate bar inside. They had around a dozen of their own house beers. They also have about 15 guest taps with a great selection. Lots of rare domestic crafts such as Alpine, the last 3 years of Bigfoot, etc. Also several excellent imports. Every beer lover can find something on their board to make them happy.

We ordered the Carlsbad pizza which was very good. Good crust and good quality toppings. The salads were very good as well.

I really enjoyed this place. Some of the best beer you'll fine anywhere as well as very good pizza. You can't ask for anymore that that.

Arrived for lunch on a quiet Monday afternoon in October fresh on the heels of this place's GABF award for best large brew pub and 7 or 8 medals for their beers.
This place is the real deal for beer geeks. Nicely situated next to a quiet beach. Perfect place for lunch and tasty brews. Didn't count but they had about 10 or 12 of their own brews which included a nice array of styles including belgian golden, hefe, wiezenbock, red ale on cask, double red, a fresh hop IPA (excellent), belgian IPA, dIPA (ridiculously tasty). All were very good but the hoppy stuff was what stood out the most.
Guest tap list was quite impressive also featuring Sierra Nevada Estate Harvest, Alpine Pure Hoppiness (very very nice), Alpine double IPA (also impressive), Ballast Point IPA, a couple of Belgians, other goodies.
Pizza was very good by West Coast standards. Its a walk up and order place for your pie or slice with a separate bar area which worked efficiently for lunch time traffic. Could see it getting congested on a busy night. Atmosphere is laid back, beach-casual. Bar staff was friendly, patient and knowledgeable.

Awesome location, food is the same as all other PP locations (really good), but the beer selection here is sick thanks to a "beer store" next door. Get your food, walk next door and grab a special/rare beer and hang out in the back garden area. Perfect way to enjoy a San Diego evening.

This place is great. Pizza, amazing beer, old school video games, an outdoor patio, and an awesome bottle shop next door. What more do you need?

Huge beer selection. Lots of great Port taps and many great guest taps. You can spend a week here and not try everything. High praise for the beer selection at this spot.

Pizza was very good and having multiple beers along with the pizza did not hurt.

Crowd was great every time I've gone. A lot of families, along with groups of serious craft beer drinkers. Nice mix. Service is very good, very efficient. Like the way they have it set up with food and beer lines separated.

Absolutely make it over here if you are in the area. Wish I could go more than once a year!

This place is much larger than the Solana Beach place. Same great pizza. Same system of buying your pizza and then finding a place to sit on your own. Just keep an eye and ear out for your pizza. After ordering, we went out to the beer festival next door and when my gf went back to get the pizza, apparently some thief had come by and claimed to be the bf picking up the pizza. The Pizzaport guy was good about it, and made up a quick pizza for us.

This place felt like it was even more packed. Nice high ceiling makes it less stuffy than Solana Beach. Locals seemed a bit friendlier.

They've got parking lot next door that they use for the beer festivals. And I guess they store a lot of bottled beer there too for distribution or whatever.

Was here on vacation a few months ago. We walked in and they were running old school surf movies on the tube(a good sign). Picnic tables are in the middle and the bar runs down one side. This place rocks, had a super selection of their own brews, plus local socal favorites. I loved their Franks, hopsack, and wipeout ipa. They also had a very passable kriek which they use like 250 lbs. of cherries to make! Pizza was delicious and their wings are great. You pick up your own food and grab beers at the bar if you have a table... I loved the casual attitude here.

Great Dank pit for a pie and a couple pitchers or pints of some freshed brewed or Pizza Port beers or local brews.
The food is Okay, comming from the Northeast pizza doesn't compare but after a few pints it's true, pizza is like sex, when it's good it's good, when it's bad it's still pretty good.
Never the less I like the chill atmosphere and picnic table seating. The beers are the really good. The Sharkbite Red, Carlsbad Chronic, California Honey, and my favorite the Bombshell Barley Wine.
Go on Wednesday for 25 cent wings and cheese sticks.
I'm alsways checking their calendar online for their monthly beer fests like the Strong Ale Fest and Belgian Beer Fest. Great drink and food specials.
It's worth a stop in on a Saturday afternoon for some tastey grub and grog!

Went again last yesterday for some beer and baseball.
Enjoyed a small pizza, came out really well, better than in the past really doughy.

Had two pints off cask, Wipeout and Redtide.
They also offered some autumn brews, an Oktoberfest and a Dopplebock, they where really good.

Good friendly crowd Friday night. I had a awesome time!

Stopped here on the way down to Pacific Beach

Really regreat not trying Russian River IPA while I was here, just knew it would have been too good and I would have too many, making me unable to drive to my buddy's house

Had two tasters while here, Sticky Stout and Devotion, both that I had later that same night at Tap Room once I had other transportation offered

Same prices as San Clemente, just with twice the beer, three times as many guest beers

Awesome place, need to go Solana Beach's location next because it is supposedly better than the other two locations, but this one would be hard to beat

Pepperoni and sausage pizza was very good, they also had great pretzels

Got a growler of Nightrider Imperial Stout to bring home and it was fantastic

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.

This is one of my favorite, must-go-to brew pubs. First, the atmosphere is fun and very relaxed, with a So-Cal surfer vibe, and a packed house that is always there to have fun and relax with a beer and some pizza.

The quality of the food and beer are both exceptional. Their house beers are what you'd expect from one of the best breweries in Southern California with an emphasis on their hoppy pales and IPAs. Not to shy away from being adventurous, they also brew many stouts, and English styles brews, and pretty much a Kitchen Sink approach to craft-brewing imagination. Upon any visit, I can expect something wonderful from them. Their guest list is usually very fine as well.

The service is generally very friendly, with regular tenders that I recognize from a few years back are still around to this day, suggesting that this is a family like crew who are passionate about serving good beer.

The selection is not as expansive as some bars, but there's usually a something for everyone inclusiveness, so no matter what kind of beer you're in the mood for, there's something very fine to be had.

Food: the pizzas are some of my favorite in So Cal and features very eclectic topping choices, including house recipes and create your own combos. The "Beer Buddy" bread sticks are also terrific if you simply want a snack with your yummy beer.

The prices are all very reasonable, with pints priced in a normal range, even with several 9% and above ales. But still others will be served in smaller glasses. But where else can I get a 16oz. pour of an Imperial IPA for a normal price? Excellent!

This place is located about 3 blocks from the ocean in Carlsbad. It has a parking lot in the back. There are a few tables out side near the parking lot. Inside, it is quite a bit more spacious that the Solana Beach location. From the out side, you can look through a window and see the brewing equipment. There are picnic tables packed inside, and booths along the wall. There is a bararea with about 10 barstools. The games are located near the back exit. The beer selection is different from the other Pizza Ports, but there are a few beers I was familiar with. The food menu was the same. The pizza was very good. Just like I have come to expect from any Pizza Port. The beer was very good also. They had a wonderful selection of beer. The staff was friendly and generous, also a Pizza Port trait I have come to expect. The price was very reasonable. I am always impressed when I walk out after a few pints and a pizza and only spend $30. This place is definately a place to stop at. I live in Chula Vista, so it is a bit of a drive, but I plan to come back often.

Pizza Port Carlsbad is as good as it gets for craft beer and the food supports it nicely. The beer lineup is outstanding. With about 18 of their own and 10 guests, they have a lot to choose from. We went with a Wipe Out IPA and a couple Poor Man's IPAs. The Por Man's IPA, a double IPA, was absolutely outstanding.

The atmosphere is a close second to the beer. With the surf shop atmosphere, pizza parlor offerings and a varied social buzz, it's perfect. We hit it on a Friday night and while it was quite busy, it was worth waiting in both the food and beer lines.

The food was solid and really backed up the beer. The pretzels were cheap ($1.50) and provided a nice starter. The pizzas were solid; especially the BBQ Chicken.

Pizza Port has it all.

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.

As this was the "Host Site" for the Strong Ale Fest, I had the opportunity to sample a bunch of their brews, all exceptional. Won't get into them here, so just read my reviews, but the food as with the Solano Beach Pizza Port a real diet buster, excellent price, quality, just plain "Wowed" me. Nice atmosphere, fairly spacious, a great tap set with mostly their magnificent creations. Service was as quick as could be expected and quality top notch. Once again 10 to 12 taps with the bottle selection as I did not check them out quite good as I was clued in by a few regulars. Once again a must try if your anywhere near Carlsbad.

Nice! Been here several times. Only just before the Real Ale Festival's held here [sort of next door in the open area outdoors].
Pretty darn good pizza. Awesome beer selection, i mean what other pizza place [that I've been to at least] has so many IPA's and Even Double IPA's as well!! As i was eating my pesto chicken sun dried tomato pizza, they must have changed the brew list two or three times! {just added HOP 15 man i missed that!}

Service is friendly, but it's always pretty hopping [pun intended] and so not much individual attention, in fact, you kinda had to really "grab" their attention. But once gotten, they take care of you and deliver!

Wish i came to Southern California more often!

A must see!

Stopped here Monday, Dec 15, for lunch on the way to Stone.

Probably got in around 12:30 or so. Very easy to find just off one of the main streets in Carlsbad. Not much of a got a bit more crowded by the time we left but I was a bit surprised. I guess not that many people go get a brewski on their lunch break. Nice big open place, plenty of TV's with sports and other stuff. They keep the bar and the food separate, but that's a good idea IMO. Service was really good...everybody was friendly and helpful. No complaints there.

Got a pizza and some beer buddies...between two people it was only like 12 bucks, and it was plenty of food. Beer buddies are the best deal going, and they're good as well. Got a BBQ Bacon Hamburger pizza...and it was freaking awesome. Their crust is just fantastic.

I can't remember exactly how many beers on top, but it must been 30-40...1/2 Pizza Port stuff and the rest guest brewers. They musta been having a Sierra Nevada thing going on, because they had a lot of SN on tap, but pretty much all harder to find stuff. Good variety of their own beers as well...everything from a lager to a quad, IIPA, bitter...pretty much whatever you were looking for they had. I had the Beech Street Bitter, which was solid...and then a taster of the Hop Suey (really good) and the Quad (nice flavor, probably will be even better in the future as it was still a bit harsh). Would tried a lot more stuff, but still had to do some driving, and the rain was pretty bad.

I liked this location more than San Clemente (although I suppose I wasn't hung over this time, which might bias me a bit). It was just more open (as far as the setup) and the tap selection was bigger and better. My only comlpaint was the bottle shop wasn't open...wish the hours were a bit longer. Sure wish there were a place like this in LA though...not that I don't love Blue Palms and the like, but it'd be nice to have a good, laid back and cheap pizza joint that just happens to brew freaking awesome beer.

I loved this place. Seemed like a great college bar. There are 2 separate hut looking places (one to order beer from and the other food). There are long picnic benches all down the seating area and a few booths by themselves along the wall. Great selection of beers on tap and their pizzas are great! They have a lot of their beers on tap along with a good selection of other companies (including RR Blind Pig, Sierra Nevada Harvest Ale, RR IPA, one or two Alpines, and a handful of others). Just a great bar to hang out in if you are looking to have a fun time. It is more of a self serving place but the bussers are very efficient and clean up the seats and your empty glasses pretty fast. Wish there was a bar like this near me!

I was in San Diego on biz and made a point to make a pilgrimage to PP as I'd not been there for a decade or longer. They're still holding strong, with more suds goodness on tap than I reasonably [and safely] could enjoy. I had a superb Citra IPA, a coffee/chocolate laced Stout and a dandy ESB. I appreciated PP's laid back scene and the friendly atmosphere; the place was full of families, bikers, beach hounds, and beer fiends just like like me. If that appeals to you, by all means, stop by. I'm sure it can get pretty crazy during the peak summer months but whatever delays you endure will be worth it.

Pizza Port is an excellent place based on quality, service, selection, food, and value. It can be an excellent destination for atmosphere if you go at the right time.

Starting with its strongest points, the quality of their beers is amazing. Regardless of your personal preference, they have a beer on tap for you. Their service is absolutely excellent. Everyone there knows their stuff and is more than willing to impart knowledge on their customers. Great selection with numerous beers on tap, and like I said, I haven't found a bad one yet. Food is reason enough to head over to Pizza Port. Some of the best pizza I have ever had. Not too expensive either.

The atmosphere could range between a 2.0 and a 5.0 depending on when you go there. Personally, I am preferential to having my own table or booth. The seating here is all long picnic tables, similar to cafeteria seating. This is all good when the place is at half capacity. However, if you get there when the place is packed, you'll spend half an hour creepily hovering over seated diners waiting to snag their seats. Then again, the fact that the place is so packed despite the lack of seating is testament to all the things that they do right.

Another San Diego (area) stop. This place was a lot of fun. Food was very good, nice selection of beers and our bartender was very engaging. Spent a lot of time with us explaining how things ran and just talking about the brand itself. Would love to spend more time.
