This is one of my must-go places any time I'm in San Diego. The pizzas are delicious, and they have about 30 fresh craft beers on tap. The atmosphere is extremely laid back - huge pub style tables, surfboards hanging on the walls, loud rock music coming out of the speakers. You can even get a big 64oz glass jug of beer to go...it's awesome! Try the Rhino Chaser, one of my favorite brews around.

My brother is a huge Pizza Port fan, having frequented their booths at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, so we had to eat and drink here during his visit to San Diego. It was Friday night around six, thus it was loud and crowded. We decided on a divide and conquer approach (which I highly recommend): two adults get beers, one adult scout out a table, one adult order the kids' pizza and an appetizer. Beers are excellent, and I recommend getting a variety and getting some extra plastic cups so you can make your own sampler. The pizza is very good, but really, it's about the beer. We ordered a pepperoni/jalapeno pie and the La Haina pie (like a deluxe Hawaiian). Both were very good. I actually flipped a slice of one on top of the other and made a sandwich-the pineapple helped tame the heat of the jalapeno for me. I definitely want to try some of the more veggie-centric pizzas on a return visit. Their wings are okay. Note that they are baked, not fried, so the texture is softer than a traditional wing. As for atmosphere, think German beer hall with long picnic tables and people of all ages eating, drinking, and being merry. Fix your own fountain drinks, get your own paper plates & plastic utensils, bus your table when you're done. Adults and kids left full and happy.

This is the second of the Pizza Port's that I have visited. The pizza is excellent. It is a must-visit for their beers. They have an amazing selection of PP Ocean Bach beers, as well as beers from their other sites in Carlsbad, San Clemente, etc. They have some great "guest" taps from Russian River and others. The atmosphere is casual and you'll be sitting on a picnic table. Lunch special is a great deal. Go here.

This place is too popular for us to feel comfortable-squeezing into long group tables and lineups for beer and pizza.

Just stopped in to have a microbrew at Ocean Beach. They make a very good IPA with a very nice arooma hop finish. If you like drinking better than average beer, this is a good place and fairly cheap.
