Bagby Beer Company Restaurant Review

: Oceanside is quickly becoming a craft beer hot-spot with several key destinations around town, and now the talented Jeff Bagby (formerly of Pizza Port) has opened his massive brewery, tasting room and eatery, further elevating the scene. Bagby Beer Company is a sprawling beer-centric establishment with multi-level dining, a barrel-side tasting room, four bars, a giant outdoor patio and decks with ocean views. Beers rotate, but one can potentially experience more than 18 Bagby selections in the tasting room (open Friday and Saturday at 5 p.m.), or while enjoying chef Brad Davis' (formerly of Pacifica) gastropub fare. Take your pick of wings, shrimp po' boys, pork belly sliders, bratwurst, burgers, tacos and pizzas --- perfect nosh with the array of beers that run from refreshing Belgian-style blonds to English Brown ale with notes of malt and chocolate. For lighter cuisine, there are salads and vegetable bowls. Playful desserts include fried PB&J and an ice cream sandwich sampler with handmade chocolate chip cookies plump with espresso, mint chip and bourbon butter pecan gelato.
