SCROLL
Born in San Diego, Ballast Point was founded in 1996 because we love beer. Through every chapter, that fact remains constant. What has changed since '96, you ask? We've heard the rumors. And you’re right. Quality has changed - it’s better. Innovation has changed - there’s more. Variety has changed - we’re creating more now than ever. So, you’re right. Things have changed over the past 24 years. It hasn’t always been perfect, but we are stronger today than ever before. Through all of the change, all we’ve focused on is making great beers to share with you, our friends and neighbors. The same great people, making the same great beer, endured a trying couple of years. Why stay, you ask? Each other. Our passion. Our beer. Longtime customers turned longtime employees still walk our brewery halls, and we’ve been right here, staying the course. Brewing the beer we want to drink. We’re all in the same dream, with the same goal. Everyday, we pour our heart and soul into the beer we brew and into the family we’ve made. Ballast Point is back, but in fact, we never left.
