This is where it all began nearly 25 years ago. Even though it’s the smallest of the Pizza Ports, Solana Beach is the one with the most history (and some would say “character”). The brew system is tiny compared to those of its Pizza Port siblings, but it’s been used to brew more magic than all the others combined (Solana Beach was GABF Small BrewPub of the year in 2003 and 2004, and many of the Pizza Port staple beers began here).
Naturally, Solana Beach is a favorite with the locals and most days you’ll find it crowded eclectic mix of families, surf rats and craft beer geeks enjoying the grub and grog in its original setting. On weekends and during the summer it’s not unusual to see people spilling out the door and onto the sidewalk patio enjoying a pint and a pizza while watching the world go by on the Coast Highway.
Local’s Tip: Solana Beach’s brewhouse is actually sunk into the floor. If you take a seat to the right of the taps on brew days you’ll get a bird’s eye view of the brewers in action.
