I may have geeked out a little too much, but I love their beers so much that being where they actually make them was a religious experience. Also, I know I will regret this for the rest of my life, but, I went to visit with my wife and kids, no other real option unfortunately...so as I am there ordering, a girl rings this bell and gets on a mic to announce that they have one more spot on their special distillery tour, and she looks straight at me..I freeze, then look at the wife...then frown and shake my head while looking down at the floor as I disappointed the beer gods and my dignity died a little. Long story long, DO IT...without the family if possible, so cool and so down to earth. Highly highly recommended, and if you like beer at all...then you MUST!

This Ballast Point is located at the far end of Little Italy. It's a fairly spacious location with both interior bar, tables, and an outdoor patio. They have many taps but from what I saw they were all Ballast Point beers.

I went around 9:30 p.m. and it was busy, crowded, and loud. They had some merchandise in the hallway. I didn't buy any food since I was in Little Italy and went to an Italian restaurant down the street that had incredible pasta.

I only had a glass with Wahoo White since I already visited Stone earlier in the evening and Bottlecraft across the street.

If you like Ballast Point beers, then this is obviously a great place for you. Maybe I will return and try some food.

Nice place to hang out.

Busy but friendly place, with a lot of different stuff on tap, including a number of R & D offerings. Not expensive and decent food.
