Our Tasting Room
Our Tasting Room, capable of accommodating several hundred people, is where you will find some of the most passionate and enthusiastic of our followers. We constructed 3 large bars staffed with courteous, knowledgeable Beertenders ready to guide you through both of our brands and the many styles that they comprise.
On our 42 tap system you’ll find many of our regular and seasonal releases available in 4oz. tasters, 16oz. large tasters and 64oz. growler fills. Many of our bottles, including limited special releases (depending on time of year), are also available for purchase in the tasting room.

Guided Brewery Tours
On Saturdays we offer free informal guided tours of our brewhouse. Generally there’s one 20-25 minute tour each hour or so from 12-5, but we’re fluid based on how busy the Tasting Room is. If you would like a tour, just ask a member of the Tasting Room staff and they will be happy to take care of you. Reservations are not required.
Tastings, Bottles & Growler Fills
Approach any of our three tasting bars and enjoy up to 24 different Port Brewing and The Lost Abbey beers freshly made, right on-site. The Tasting Room offers individual tastings as well as taster combinations of our beers. Tasters are $1 each per 4 ounce glass; Tasters are also available in larger portions for $4 to $5 per glass based on the beer (some special releases may be more).
Most of our regular bottles (and occasionally special releases) are available for purchase in the tasting room. Prices range from $4.99 to $15. There is a 10% discount for full case (12 bottle) purchases on select beers.
Most of our Port Brewing products are available in 22 ounce crowned bottles. Our beers carrying the Lost Abbey label are available in 375ml and/or 750ml cork-stoppered bottles.
For a complete list of our regular beer releases currently available in the tasting room, please see our year round bottle list.
We’re pleased to also offer ½ gallon (1.9 liter) growler fills of all regular release beers on tap. A new, re-usable growler costs $5 and a growler fill ranges from $12 – $18 based on the beer.
Please note: By law, we cannot fill a growler that doesn’t bear the Port Brewing and/or The Lost Abbey name and address. As such growlers imprinted with another brewery’s name, blank growlers, or those that have had labels placed over the original printed name cannot be filled. (Sorry, we don’t make the laws, we just have to live by them.)
Tour Groups & Private Events
We are pleased to welcome groups ranging from 15 people to 100+ to our tasting room during our normal, daily public tasting room hours.
For tour groups we recommend three local firms, Brew Hop San Diego, Brewery Tours of San Diego and Scavengers Beer & Adventures Tour. All of whom are excellent services and will work with us (as well as other local breweries) prior to your tour to ensure the best brewery experience possible.
If you are coordinating your own visit of 15 people or more, or are working with a private transportation company, reservations are not required. We would however be happy to add you to our daily calendar and simply request that you contact us at least one week in advance with your group size and approximate arrival time. You can contact our Hospitality Department by visiting this page.
As fun as having the Abbey to yourself would be, we are not currently able to offer private events due to on-going brewery operations. The Tasting Room is open seven days a week and special occasions are celebrated here each and every day. Please feel free to join the fun on your special day too!
