Named after the tiny Point Loma peninsula extending into San Diego Bay, Ballast Point is “the fastest growing major craft brand in the U.S.” per CEO Rob Sands.

Founded in 1992 (behind Home Brew Mart in Linda Vista,) the local brewery made headlines last fall when it was purchased by Corona for a gazillion dollars.


Since its release 10 years ago, Ballast Point Sculpin IPA has spawned Grapefruit Sculpin, Pineapple Sculpin, and Habanero Sculpin — converting women everywhere into IPA drinkers.

While no official announcement has been made, the award-winning brewery is set to release Ballast Point Unfiltered Sculpin IPA (12 ounce bottles) in the near future.
