Right in the Little Italy neighborhood of San Diego, Ballast Point was easy to find. Parking around the area was more difficult, but if you go during the day or don't mind throwing down a couple shekels for parking, you shouldn't have to walk too far.

When we walked in it was bustling with people (nearing 2PM), luckily we a table of people was getting up from there spot and asked if we would like to sit down. The drinks were ordered right up front when you walk in and the list is displayed on two big flat screen TVs that rotate, which makes it difficult to find what you are looking for if you go through in detail (like I tend to do). But eventually I went with a flight of beers (IPAs, a smoked scotish, and a lager if memory serves).

Food is done in a hybrid-cafeteria style, order with a window then you get a number and they bring it out to you. The food came fairly quick, about two sample size beers quick any way, and was tasty.

From our spots you could see the brewing equipment encased in a glass room, shiny stainless ready to go. I would have liked to talk with one of the brewers, but the place was super busy. The beers where fresh, but nothing mind blowing, they did have a very wide selection.

Overall a great spot for a night out, lunch or just to stop in for a pint.
