SAN DIEGO – Ballast Point started out in the back of a homebrew supply store in 1996, fueled by a grassroots beer culture and a shared love of great beer. Irrespective of the journey, Ballast Point remains inherently San Diegan, a Southern Californian brewery that feels equally at home on the ocean in a fishing boat, surfing, at the baseball park, on the golf course, cycling, hiking, or tossing burgers in the backyard with friends.
To celebrate a quarter century of brewing, Ballast Point is releasing a new, limited-release 25th Anniversary Mix Pack. These beers embody the past, present, and future of Ballast Point with four classics that commemorate the journey along the way: Calico (Amber Ale, 1996), California Kölsch (German Style Pale Ale, 1996), Sculpin (IPA, 2005), and Big Gus (IPA, 2021).
“From our gritty Home Brew Mart to our big production facility in Miramar, Ballast Point concentrates on the beer and what it means to enjoy beer with friends,” says Brendan Watters, co-founder of Kings & Convicts Brewing Co. and CEO of Ballast Point. “We are going to continue innovating and sharing great beer and look forward to doing so for the next 25 years.” Ballast Point’s 25th Anniversary Mix Pack will feature 12, 12 oz. cans and will be available beginning mid-June initially in all Ballast Point tasting rooms and stores throughout Southern California.
About Ballast Point Brewing Co.
What started in 1996 as a small group of homebrewers who simply wanted to make great beer evolved into the team of adventurers known today as Ballast Point. A pioneering brewery born 25 years ago within the hallowed, hopped walls of San Diego’s Home Brew Mart, the complete art of the craft swims in the DNA of Ballast Point and informs both what’s inside and on the can. On March 2, 2020, Ballast Point officially returned to its iconic independent roots under the new ownership of San Diego-headquartered, Kings & Convicts Brewing Co., and continues to be an internationally recognized leader in the industry with five taproom locations in California and a San Francisco brewpub planned for fall 2021. From bringing a hoppy twist to a porter or adding four types of malt to its amber ale, to creating the breakthrough gold-medal winning Sculpin IPA, Ballast Point is known for adding its touch and asking if there’s a better way. Ballast Point brews over 50 styles of beer with an emphasis on R&D and innovation and is distributed in select markets across the US and internationally.
