This was our first stop on a trip to all 3 Pizza Port locations in one day. From outside this place looks like any other restaurant with a nice patio. Inside there is a winding staircase and a bar to the left situated right in front of the brewing area. The beer at this location was the the weakest of the 3 locations, but it is not bad, the others are just better. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the bartender was friendly but lacked some ber knowledge. They had about 10 of their own brews on tap with a few guest brews from other breweries. It is worth visiting this brewpub beacause they have their own unique brewery and some beers that seem to be a work in progress. Though he wasn't there when we visited, the head brewer seems very accessible because people were coming in and asking for him by name. And I guess it makes sense since all of the brew tanks are right behind the bar.

Always enjoy stopping by Pizza Port's San Clemente location. There's an upper and lower bar, with mostly in house Pizza Port selections, though they do carry a handful of guest selections as well. Solid pizzas, just like Pizza Port's other locations. The worst aspect, the place can get noisy; the best aspect it hosts great beer fests from time to time (that manages to stay a bit under the radar).

Definitely get the Swami's IPA when you're there, its an OG IPA from the earliest days of the San Diego brew scene.

Very cool vibe. I was there on a bright sunny day, so the view was gorgeous. Chill pizza place right off the beach. Eclectic decor, a lot of beer related decorations.

House beers were great quality, as were all the guest taps. Great overall beer list. Pizza was really tasty and fresh.

Service was okay, nothing special but nothing negative.

Selection was great. As mentioned, the beer list was awesome in quality. The quantity was there too with a wide assortment of styles. I did a few flights to get a look at the kind of stuff they were making and was impressed.

Stopped there twice in one week while camping just outside of San Clemente. The first time, we had pizza and I had a Swami IPA. Very good experience. The people there were very friendly and the food was solid. It was family friendly and plenty of food to pick from. Same for beer. I had higher expectations for the guest taps but I guess you just have to be there at the right time. Regardless, there was still a lot of beer choices, especially their own. The second trip once again was outstanding. It was in the middle of the week and during the afternoon so it was quite and slow at the time. We ate at the second level and ended up talking to a friendly couple that sat at a table next to us. Overall, it was a very good experience and recommend any family to visit the place for the food and beer.
