Lots of merch available in the tasting room store.
1996 (Little Italy location: 2013)
Very cool tasting room and restaurant setup with a bar area, restaurant/seating area, and a large outdoor patio as well. The decor is very simple and you can view the brewery from the tasting room. The merch area is quite large and situated behind the bar. Parking in Little Italy can be hard to find, but you shouldn’t have to circle the block too many times before finding a spot within walking distance. A nice touch when ordering a flight, your glassware will come with tags attached with the name of the beer so you don’t lose track of what beer is what. This location can get quite crowded but there is plenty of seating options, especially on a nice day/evening when the outdoor patio can be utilized (which let’s be honest…is most days in San Diego). Ballast Point Little Italy is very close to the San Diego airport so this can be a good place to start your San Diego Beercation or to grab one last beer on your way out.
