Well I should first state that my husband and I are two 50 somethings on vacation in the area for like our 20th time so we are aware that this area is busy, busy, busy during the summer months,
so we expect a lot of families. However, we did not expect the experience to be quite so loud, crowded and jam packed with kids, mostly under the age of ten. If the arcade type games at the back of the establishment were taken out, they could add additional seating, which is desperately needed. The pizza was good - not great, but decent. The beer we choose was not to my liking,
advertised as a summer ale, however it was very bitter. My husband thought it was ok and he is the beer drinker in our house. We also have visited numerous breweries throughout the U.S. and we only drink speciality beers at home. So we do have a point of reference in our opinions.

Tons of local beers on draft with knowledgeable servers. Pizza is excellent as well, with many non-traditional options. Have been to both the Solana Beach and Ocean Beach stores, and basically are very similar food/drink-wise. Kind of prefer the ambiance of the Solana Beach store. Order at the counter and find a seat--can be crowded and you'll be sharing a table. Great SD experience; we eat here often with no issues.

I love the pizza here. Thick, chewy crust. Be sure to get a portzel as a nice snack. The beer is really good too! Be prepared to fight over or, at a minimum, share your table with others. But its a friendly crowd. Good for takeout or eat in if you like the smell of beer spilled on the floor.

The Caesar salad and the portzels and beer buddies are awesome. Pizza is pretty good and the micro beer selection is wonderful. the place can get really crowded. This is a small chain and they are all fun but have their own character. In Encinitas i see people getting cited for smoking in front. be careful they are serious about smoking regs. This is a great place for guys or friends hanging out in the evening and during the day for a friendly get together or little league. they have a lot of video machines. Not my thing but my son loves it.

Good basic food, excellent pizza, and proper surf culture but the real draw is that this is one of the long time brew pubs in San Diego County. Every year they take home numerous awards for their excellent brews.
