Ballast Point

5401 Linda Vista Road, San Diego, CA, 92110

This brewery started in the back of a homebrew shop, offering a dizzying variety of beers, including the hop-centric kinds for which San Diego has become known.

Brewing secret

Their Kölsch has proved so popular that a separate production brewery has been built to keep up with demand.

Yellowtail Pale Ale

beer style: Kölsch
alcohol content: 4.6% ABV

Soft and sweet on the nose with a hint of spices. Dry cracker flavors yield to a floral, but still dry finish.

Dorado Double IPA

beer style: Imperial India Pale Ale
alcohol content: 9.6% ABV

Flavors of pine and grapefruit throughout. Hop oils on the palate blend with a solid malt structure. Long, bitter finish.
