Downtown Carlsbad may be a little village by the sea, but it boasts big brewing prowess! Pizza Port’s brewers are not just good, they’re great. Jeff Bagby (now head brewer and restaurateur of the very tasty Bagby Beer Company in Oceanside) passed the reins to the masterful hands of Head Brewer Mike Aubuchon, who continues the rich tradition. Aubuchon and his crew repeatedly knock out dream-about brews. Not only can you belly up to the bar and drink from an incredibly deep and wide guest beer and house-brewed tap, Aubuchon is also known to bottle limited-edition beers for special occasions. Most recently, a blended stout aged in bourbon barrels that packs a big oak nose; a smooth, velvety, and rich finish; and delicious hints of chocolate and vanilla. Plus each bottle is topped with a whiskey-wax dip that’s perfect for a special gift or to brighten any occasion.
Pizza Port is now in five locations, including Bressi Ranch where they can the beer for distribution, too. If you’re visiting SoCal and love beer as much as we do, make sure to stop by Pizza Port or search for one of their beers in stores.
