Definitely worth checking out. I missed doing a tour of the brewery (ended at 3:30) but was still a cool place to stop into and have some beers and food. My only regret is not going back to try the kale salad!

Ballast Point has something like 20 beers on tap. I tried the Victory at Sea porter, which was very good. The place was crowded, but seating is unorganized, first come, first serve. I think they have table service, but it was really hard to tell since there was no host out front.

A good selection of food and a large selection of beer and both are really tasty. The service was good and the staff was friendly.

The beer selection is outstanding with a number of Ballast Point offerings that may not be broadly circulated. The food selection was really good bar type food and I enjoyed the Fish Tacos.

The service was good - particularly since the desire is for you to self serve at the bar but we always had someone checking on us and the space was very large - great to linger and enjoy some time.

We went for lunch on a weekday. I'm from the east coast so was looking forward to tasting beers we normally can't get. In total we sampled 9 beers. Fantastic choices. Try the berry-12% but do good. Wahoo really close 2nd. Food was as expected and everything is reasonably priced. Small merch store for souvenirs.
We sat at the bar our servers were all friendly and knew the beers. One bordered on a little pretentious but not over the top. Would recommend a visit for beer lovers or as a quick bite getaway
