Beer Buzz Hits the Road: Ballast Point
As cans grow in popularity, large stacks like these await their turn on the line. Ballast Point recently revamped their cans to feature artwork from San Diego native and longtime Ballast Point artist Paul Elder.
Bottles of Ballast Points award winning Sculpin IPA whirl toward packaging. Sculpin began as a homebrew recipe amped up on a 15 barrel brewhouse. Fermenters, kegs, bottles and cans as we walk about the brewery this San Diego legend is nearly everywhere you turn.
Mountains of freshly filled kegs. The cold storage here is so massive you could fit a nano brewery inside!
As we concluded our tour we stopped to admire this large mural showcasing the following quote from Jacques Cousteau - The future is in the hands of those who explore.
Refusing to rest on their laurels, Ballast Points extensive research and development program continues to explore new beers styles and flavors, brewing up test batches for thirsty fans to taste and vote on. While theyve grown tremendously over the last twenty years, a homebrewers passion for experimentation is still alive and well at Ballast Point, and thats something we find quite refreshing.
