In 1992, Jack White started Home Brew Mart. Home Brew Mart was meant to be a place where home brewers could come and purchase all the items necessary to make their own beer. Jacks goal was to eventually start his own brewery, and lucky his dream came true. In 1996 Home Brew Mart’s opened a backroom brewery behind the shop, called Ballast Point.
Ballast Point was based on the philosophy of “always doing what you love, and making what you love to drink.” The crew decided to name the beers after something they loved- fishing. Today, many of the beers are named after fish or fishing terms.
Ballast Point currently has four locations in San Diego, each with their very own tasting room.
Stop on by their store to taste their awesome beer, and make sure to try them while you are at our Taste of Brews Long Beach craft beer festival. http://www.tasteofbrews.com
