Ballast Point Brewing’s next build will be in “The Happiest Place on Earth”. The brewery has announced a new location in the Downtown Disney District in Anaheim California.
While Anaheim’s Disneyland Park is dry keeping in line with founder Walt Disney’s vision, the Downtown Disney District started serving alcohol since 2001. Ballast Point will be the first brewery in the district.
According to Ballast Point, it was that Disney approached them first about this opportunity.
Later this year, Ballast Point will open a 7,300 square foot tasting room, brewery, and kitchen. The brewhouse will only be 3 barrel R&D brewery (about 90 gallons per brew), but boast 100 taps for the 225-seat restaurant. Expect their flagship Sculpin IPA always on tap, as well as a plethora of limited edition beers.
In 2015, Ballast Point sold to Constellation Brands for a record-breaking $1 Billion dollars.
The brewery currently operates locations in the Miramar, Scripps Ranch and Little Italy areas of San Diego as well as Long Beach, California and Daleville, Virginia.
