Pizza Port Ocean Beach - A Drink Come True

I drove by the Pizza Port Ocean Beach (PPOB) location this morning and saw that the chain-link fence was down.  A short time later I read comments from J Rhode and The Hop Daddy that PPOB had its opening yesterday - the first day in about three weeks I did not bothered to drive by.  So, I missed the opening - what a douche bag.

I ran over early this afternoon, and PPOB was packed - inside and out.  I ordered a Jetty IPA and absorbed the atmosphere.  There is no upstairs patio, as it's reserved as an apartment for the owner - must be nice.  The restaurant is big, with five lines of typical Pizza Port picnic tables, as well as tables along the windows and outside on the Bacon Street patio.

There were thirty-eight taps working - and more taps that were not hooked to kegs.  Amazing.  I took a few pictures, but there were so many people, I didn't feel comfortable shooting restaurant shots.  I will try to post more at a later date. 

My first impression is that this place is awesome.  The tap list - both Port/Lost Abbey and guest taps - is stellar, and it is only going to get bigger.  The term "No Crap on Tap" is over used, but it sure applies at PPOB.

The Beer Rovette came up with the title to this post sight and tap list unseen.  It's the most appropriate title this blog has ever used.  I think I'm going to like it here.

(I apologize for the crappy pictures, I will get better ones after the crowds subside.)

I am glad that they are now open. It is like a road away from home! This is going to be a nice hang out!

I suspect even the non-peak hours will see a good crowd. Weekends will be crazy, especially as we enter summer.

What a dream come true. Now I won't have to drive to Solana Beach to get some good beer and pizza. I will only be going there during the day and probably during the week as its sure to be packed at all times on the weekend.
