Beer aficionados and food gurus do not want to miss out on catching their team’s next big game at Pacific Beach AleHouse — a local hotspot with a stellar lineup of fresh, handcrafted brews, friendly customer service and a scrumptious game-day menu to fill up the whole crew at a reasonable price.

Not only can AleHouse boast at least 16 high-definition flat screens throughout its venue — a must have to catch all your favorite games — but the place is simply oozing with its very own signature beer in everything from the dressings, sauces, batters, desserts and, of course, the ice-cold house craft beer accompanying your meal.

With a range of styles in uber-local names to choose from — like the brewery’s Amber Wave, PB Porter, Whitewash Wheat, Crystal Pier Pale Ale or Good Times Gold — AleHouse’s taps can supply pretty much anything you are looking for in a local, quality beer.

The bar also plays host to a few rotating guest beers and daily specials to cater to any appetite.

“[We have the] freshest beer at the beach,” said owner Joe Picciuca. “[Also,] 16-plus HD TVs with sound for various games, as well as two outdoor patios to enjoy the San Diego weather.”

A few crowd pleasers on game days include the buffalo popcorn chicken, Hog Board with three different types of meat — spicy peppered bacon, beer brats and andouille sausage beer-braised bratwurst and the chili bread bowl.

Monday Night Football games also couldn’t possibly get much better than at AleHouse with a $5 burger deal from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. and $3 pilsners from 5 p.m. to close.

The lodge-like ambiance at the restaurant-microbrewery — including the natural wood and stone tile materials, cozy couches, and outdoor fire pit on the lower patio — exudes a friendly, comfortable feel that makes locals and out-of-towners alike feel right at home. What’s more is that the local favorite – located just steps away from the beach – offers unparalleled views from its rooftop deck, which overlooks the Pacific and Crystal Pier, for those who want to soak in more than just the game.

Although PB AleHouse plays a range of games throughout the weekend and welcomes fans of all affiliations, expect to see quite a few Buffalo Bills fans donning their signature royal blue and scarlet, cheering on their favorite team each Sunday at the AleHouse.

“If you’re a Bills fan you’ll love it,” said Picciuca. “Not so much Brady fans.”

Pacific Beach AleHouse, located at 721 Grand Ave., is open Mondays through Fridays 11 a.m. to 2 a.m. and Saturdays and Sundays from 9 a.m. to 2 a.m. For more information, visit www.pbalehouse.com or call (858) 581-2337.
