Ballast Point Brewing
Ballast Point Brewing has been around for 21 years and has won numerous awards. What began in 1996 as a small group of homebrewers who just wanted to make amazing beer has grown into the Ballast Point team of explorers they know today. Ballast Point is a pioneering brewery that was founded 25 years ago within the hallowed, hoppy walls of San Diego’s Home Brew Mart. The whole art of the craft is in Ballast Point’s DNA and informs both what’s inside and what’s on the can. Ballast Point is known for adding its touch and questioning if there’s a better way, whether it’s adding four varieties of malt to an amber ale or inventing the breakthrough gold-medal winning Sculpin IPA.

“Great atmosphere and amazing view. We’ve been here twice already and tried different things each time on the menu and we weren’t disappointed. I love the ordering concept with the QR code on the table, you order and pay right on your phone and the food gets delivered to the table. No need to wait to have your orders be taken and I think it’s very efficient.” – Richard S.
