Growing up in San Diego and loving beer, when I came back for a visit, I had to hit the place where all the magic happens. Hopped by there in July '12

Located in an industrial park near Mirmar

Cool little tap room. Lots of stand up tables and a nice wooden bar. Can see the vats in the back.

I think they had about 15-20 items on tap. I did a flight plus a couple extras. As usual, the quality of the brews was awesome. BP always has great stuff, and to get it right where its made is even better.

I ate too much Indian food before I got there, otherwise I would have had a few more selections, but I was stuffed. (617 characters)

after a stressful day and hour drive home where people driving slow refuse to move from the passing lane because they apparently own that lane it was nice to cook meat on a grill and have a high quality beer that made me appreciate whoever created it nice quality hops and a 10% alcohol content were getting closer to hoffbrauhaus in Germany they have 20% beers .thank you ballast point you made my day worth the money (419 characters)

Basically a noisy brew pub. Hard to argue with the quality of the beers, though. (80 characters)

Black Marlin Porter made my day! Ballast Point has great brewery atmosphere with bustling tasting room and 7 regular, 8 limited, and 6 research beers on tap! Service is excellent. Grab a street taco on the patio. (212 characters)
