While en route to Mexico, we spent some time in San Diego. We had to visit Ballast Point Brewing…of course. Ballast is a craft beer mainstay, you likely see it at your local store. They’ve been on the scene for ages. The folks in SD love their BPB and it shows. Their tasting room is HUGE. The beer selection is HUGE. I think they must have had 30 beers on tap. They were pouring a ‘Red Velvet Stout’ that was bonkers. Actually red, like red velvet cake. Yum. I had IPA’s, their famous Sculpin, a great Amber, Pale Ale…don’t worry…they were all samples, not pints. They DO call it a ‘tasting room’. If you’re in San Diego, I recommend stopping in at one of their six locations. They’ve got something for everyone, and it’s allllll good.
