    I googled and only found vague mentions from spring of last year that a canning line was in the works.
    Well, the first label approval for Swami's IPA in 16oz cans just came through.

    Found on beerpulse.com

    I'm assuming they are going to be doing this out of their new facility that's being built? How close is that to completion?

    Furthermore, any news on Bagby Beer Co. in Oceanside?

    They're moving the tanks/fermentation equpiment into Pizza Port #5. Head Brewer will be Yiga from PP OB.

    Bagby has a location in Oceanside and I think they're planning it now?

    Yeah their new facility in Bressi Ranch will have a canning line as well as a brewpub. Expected completion was sometime in the next couple of months (although I don't know if the project has been delayed at all.)

    Bagby's new place will probably be done sometime towards the end of the year - they found a location, signed the lease, and have started the construction process.

    Can someone please enlighten me on how pizza port is related to port brewing (if it even is at all). I'm uninformed.

    Tomme Arthur brewed for Pizza Port back in the day. He left to start Port Brewing/The Lost Abbey in 2005ish???

    They are owned by the same people. It all started as Pizza Port. Then the owners Vince and Gina, along with the lead Pizza Port brewer at the time, Tomme Arthur, started a separate brewery and production facility called Port/Lost Abbey. A lot of Port's beers were initially created at Pizza Port then scaled up to production at Port.

    Now, Pizza Port is a different company brewing different beer with different brewmasters (although the same owners). This is their first production facility.

    I am pretty sure that Tomme is not related to the "Port Brewing" part of their business. Essentially, they are just sharing space, right?

    MacNCheese Initiate (0) Dec 10, 2011 California

    It's complicated? I have no idea if we'll see Wipeout or Mongo in cans, as those are Port beers.

    I think it just depends on who the owners are. I don't believe (and I could be dead wrong) that Tomme has any stake in the Pizza Port line.

    Still wish Port would force carb their beers.

    No I think it's more of a Toyota & Lexus type deal.
    Same facilities, production areas, and parent company. Different Products/Marketing/Customer base.

    He's one of the founders of Port. This is explained on their website (which is down, at the moment.) I'm sure he still plays a part in production, if only to oversee it.

    Think of each "Port" as a semi-independent brewery, with equally independent brewers. Pizza Port Brewing/Lost Abbey just doesn't make pizza and has a different owner/corporate structure.

    Pizza Port should've opened up in the space next to Beachwood. That would've made me explode

    Port and Pizza port have nothing to do with each other anymore except for the owners (Vince and Gina). There is no production facility for Pizza Port beers...that's what is being built right now.

    BeerAdvocate has their relationship screwed up in the Breweries/Beers description - they shouldn't be listed together. I have already submitted a request to have this changed, but apparently it's not high on the list of important things to do for the Bros. They'd rather police the forums than fix the site.

    Hope they can Mongo or Wipeout, as those are Port Brewing staples.

    That would be fine, but it will have to be after Lost Abbey does 750ml bottles of Dusk Till Dawn.

    Pizza Port is building the canning line and canning Swami IPA.
    Port Brewing brews Mongo/Wipeout, it is a separate company and has no canning line.

    Now I'm totally screwed up. I thought the new facility was to expand the Port Brewing capacity, distribute all the restaurant supplies, as well as house a Pizza Port brewpub. I even went to an event at the new site. My bad.

    If they can Mongo I hope they use clear cans so you can see how many inches of sediment there is before buying.

    Mongo is made by Port Brewing, not Pizza Port. I'm sure they won't be canning/bottling any of Port's products. They have the same owners, but are separate companies/breweries.
