Port Brewing Co.
If San Diego County had a craft beer church, it would be this San Marcos brewery where Tomme Arthur produces beer for both Port and The Lost Abbey. Port grew from a brewpub chainlet and now features beers like Wipeout IPA and Shark Attack red ale, both served from flip-flop tap handles. The Lost Abbey brews more Belgian-slanted ales “for saints and sinners alike,” including offerings called Devotion and Judgment Day that flow from holy cross-topped taps. All of these beers and more are available at the on-site tasting room, which is open Friday through Sunday, and features barstools crafted from kegs and hop sacks.
