In 1987, siblings Gina and Vince Marsaglia bought a pizza place in Solana Beach. By word of mouth, they turned what used to be a struggling restaurant into a local favorite. Vince started home brewing, and finally began offering craft beers to Pizza Port customers in 1992. In 2008, they opened a premium bottle shop in Carlsbad. The following year, Pizza Port won 9 medals at the 2009 Great American Beer Festival and Pizza Port Carlsbad was named Large Brewpub of the Year. Pizza Port is just blocks from the beach and is well known for its signature foods and handcrafted beers. The Bressi Ranch location even has a canning line! The company has seen a lot of growth over the last few decades, but they still hold true to the mantra “Good Food and Good Beer Bring Good Cheer!”
