Gold - San Diego Beer Festival 2009
Pizza Port begun as a pizzeria in 1987, handmaking hot and tasty pizzas for the beachgoers of Solana Beach in California. As beer lovers themselves, Pizza Port decided to try their hand in crafting their own beers to go with their pizzas and served their first handcrafted beer in 1992. The response was incredible. As Pizza Port's fan base grew, so did their awards – "Small Brewpub of the Year" in Great American Beer Festival 2003 and 2004, then "Large Brewpub of the Year" in 2009, 2010 and 2011 – Pizza Port is now the most medaled brewery in San Diego, with over 90 awards!
