Much smaller than their tasting room and kitchen, but their knowledge and ability to answer and share what you are tasting. One of my favorite places by far!!

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.
