The Solana Beach-based companies joined together to celebrate a thriving San Diego cultural scene that includes many world-famous biotech companies and craft beer breweries.

“Pizza Port is not only a pioneer within the craft brewing industry, but they’re also recognized as long time business leaders in San Diego,” stated Kevin Lustig, PhD, CEO and Founder of “Since our offices are located just a stone’s throw away from each other, it seemed natural to come together to celebrate two of San Diego’s most famous attributes - biotech and beer!”

Nearly 30 years and numerous brewing awards later, Pizza Port now has five locations throughout southern California.
