Pizza and beer are a classic combination, one that Vista's Backstreet Brewery, along with its counterpart Lamppost Pizza, seem to have mastered. About as casual and laid back a spot as you'll find, this no muss, no fuss establishment features a large dining room with plenty of TVs, games for the kids, and lots of communal seating, a la Pizza Port. The bar area has a unique identity of its own, trading bustling families and video games for serious beer drinkers and 2 levels of brewing equipment. They truly offer something for everyone. I was really impressed with their pizza. Opting for a classic, the large cheese pizza was one of the best pies I've had in a long time. The crust was the star, but the pizza as a whole was absolutely delicious. The daily special of $4 off any large pizza was pretty tasty as well! I use the term "solid" quite often when I describe beer. That typically means that the beer was good, and lived up to its particular style. This beer was solid. I enjoyed 2 IPA's on my visit. Cale's Ale, an American IPA, and My Peeps, a Black IPA were both very good. Each were extremely drinkable and paired perfectly with the pizza. I look forward to trying other selections on future visits. Future visits that are guaranteed, as this will be a regular stop on my growing list of North County pizza and beer go-to spots. It should be on your list, too!
