Ballast Point is another craft beer favorite of mine and we got to watch the sunset over beer samples and pretzel bites in Little Italy. The beers I tried included – Indra Kunindra, Coconut Victory at Sea, Orange Cream Vanilla Ale, Unfiltered Sculpin, Piper Down, Manta Ray, Tart Peach Kolsch, and The Real Dill.
Since this brewery is a research and development location it was fun to try some new and creative beers. Some that were really good and one that was not – looking at you Real Dill. Overall this is a great stop and with the ability to pick your own flights it is fun to try new things with very little risk.
One of my favorite elements was the artwork in the brewery – all nautical themed and many of the pieces used in their beer labels.
Located in the heart of Little Italy, this location offers bayside breezes, award-winning and experimental brews, and a casual dining ambiance indoors and out. Sip pints on the patio or in a private cabana while watching overhead planes, or watch our brewers brew an R&D beer.
