The location was a little tough to find. Sort of in an office park. The beer selection is solid. The service was top notch. The server constantly provided me with samples and wanted to make sure I was able to try as many of their brews as possible since I was just passing through ans live 3000 miles away. I felt the beers were good though no one beer really stood out to me to mention here. That being said, I enjoyed them all and if they were available/distributed in my area, I would definitely continue to purchase their product. Overall the service really stood out to me.

I was lucky enough to be in San Diego the week of 11/11 - 11/16/2014 (craft beer week) and decided to check out Ballast Point Brewery and tasting room. They did not disappoint and I had a great time. Food was also very good with local fares such as yellow tail fish taco's. The best of course for me was the beer... I loved their Barrel Aged Victory at Seas, they had 2 different versions, one was oak barrel and the other brandy barrel.. both excellent. The brewery was very clean, fun, lively and you could tell a good crowd of regulars and visitors such as myself. For take home, there is a place next door with great craft beer selection called Bottlecraft, highly recommend also.
