Pizza Port Brewing Company Carlsbad – Bottom Line
Pizza Port is not your normal brewery, they primarily focus on making great pizzas, but at the same time make a great variety of beers. Of the four Pizza Port locations, the Carlsbad location is my favorite; it is large, has a nice patio, and a friendly atmosphere. Every time I go to Carlsbad, I make it a point to swing by Pizza Port, as it is one of the few lively places in sleepy Carlsbad on a Friday or Saturday night.
The pizzas they make are are gourmet pizzas, with toppings you often will not find at Pizza Hut on pizzas such as the Lahaina, which includes Canadian style bacon, pineapple, bell peppers & onions, or the Carlsbad, which includes Pesto, mesquite grilled chicken, sun-dried tomatoes, artichoke hearts, & feta.
Each Pizza Port has a unique line up of beers because the beer is brewed at each location, and the recipes at each location are a little different. We think this variation by location is great, as it makes each location a destination and unique experience. The Carlsbad Pizza Port location is one of the larger locations and it is not uncommon for them to have 20 house beers on tap and 10 or so guest beers on tap.
The bottom line on Pizza Port Carlsbad is great place to go hang out with friends and have some good pizza and beer.

Isn’t Pizza Port the same company as Port Brewing Company?
Its complicated. The founders of Pizza Port started brewing in the back of the restaurant in 1992 and serving the beer to their customers, but the Pizza Port’s beer became so successful that the brewery was spun off into it’s own company (Port Brewing Company) in 2006, and Pizza Port Brewing Company lived on serving pizza and beer at their four Southern California restaurant locations. The two breweries still share some of the same legacy beer names (i.e. Wipeout IPA), but the beers have gone in different directions under the supervision of different brewmasters.
