Pizza Port Brings Pizza & Craft Beer To San Diego's Imperial Beach

August 22, 2022

After almost 4 years of development, Pizza Port opened its newest location in San Diego's South County community of Imperial Beach. 

Founded in San Diego's North County community of Solana Beach in March 1987 by brother and sister Vince & Gina Marsaglia, Pizza Port initially focused on the food side of business while tinkering with home brewing in the restaurant's storage area. It wasn't until 1992 that the eatery offered its first house-brewed craft beers, and today, the brewery component of Pizza Port has won over 91 awards and is regarded as one of San Diego's leading breweries. The company expanded to a second location with the opening of the Carlsbad outpost in 1997 and hasn't stopped since, opening in San Clemente in 2003, in Ocean Beach in 2010 and in Bressi Ranch in 2013. In 2006, Pizza Port founders took over Stone Brewing's old brewhouse in San Marcos for the launch of The Lost Abbey, an Old-World-style craft brewery that has garnered a significant reputation over the years.

In September 2018, we broke the news that Pizza Port was moving into the 3,168 square-foot retail building in Imperial Beach that last housed Luna's Beauty Designers, TNT Surf Shop and West Coast Cafe for the company's sixth San Diego location. After a substantial build out and redesign, the 6th Pizza Port branch soft opened over the weekend but is still waiting on its liquor license to be fully operational. Like other outposts, the family-friendly brewpub will serve a simple menu of tavern fare and pizza in a fun and relaxed setting with arcade games and picnic tables, as well as plenty of West Coast craft beer options coming from the onsite, 7-barrel brewhouse.

Pizza Port is now in its soft opening stage at 204 Palm Avenue in San Diego's South County city of Imperial Beach. For more information, visit
