Ballast Point is the ideal San Diego Brewery.

Sculpin is and should be the benchmark for westcoast IPAs

Awesome service. Not to much of a scenery, but who cares when you serve good beer.

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!!

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
