Description

To celebrate the 25th Anniversary of the birth place of Ballast Point, we’d like to invite you – home brewers and beer enthusiasts alike – for a celebration where it all began. Join us Sunday, September 24th from 12pm-6pm for a beer festival and home brewing bash!

Featuring our 2017 Family Reunion Collaboration Series brews, Home Brew Competition finalists’ brews, EXTREMELY rare specialties from our cellar, food trucks, and more, we would love to celebrate with you!

Collaboration Breweries include:

  • Amplified Ale Works / Barley Wine with Crystal Rye Malt and Cherrywood Smoked Malt
  • Nickel Brewing / Strong Saison
  • Fieldwork Brewing Co. / Black California Common
  • Eppig Brewing Co. / Extra Special Bitter with toasted oats and coffee
  • 32 North Brewing Co. / Hoppy Kolsh
  • Fall Brewing Co. / Saison with mixed yeast (brett and saison 565)
  • Ironfire Brewing Co. / Brett-Fermented Wet IPA


Specialties from our Cellar include:

  • 2010 Piper Down, Bourbon Barrel Aged (6%)
    Batch #4 aged in Heaven Hill Old Style Bourbon barrels. Slight tartness lightens body.

  • 1997 English Barley Wine (9%)
    A rich blend of 1997 Barley Wine (Ballast Point's first strong ale) with 2007 Three Sheets Barley Wine. Blended for the Ballast Point Anniversary in 2008. Aged in stainless.

  • 2011 Indra Kunindra Batch #1 (7%)
    Export Stout with Madras Curry, Kaffir Lime Leaves, Cumin, Cayenne and toasted Coconut. Our very first batch of Indra Kunindra brewed with Alex Tweet (now brewer and owner of Fieldwork Brewing in Berkeley).

  • 2009 Sour Wench Batch #3 (5.5%)
    One of the first kettle sours done commercially in San Diego using spontaneous fermentation from bacteria found on the malted barley kernels. Marion Blackberry color has oxidized a bit into a brick red and acidity is very soft.

  • 2010 Bourbon Barrel Aged Tongue Monster (12%)
    A blend of Tongue Buckler and Sea Monster, then aged in a Heaven Hill Bourbon Barrel for eight months - the only barrel in existence.

... and MORE!


Meet Home Brew Mart and Ballast Point veterans, and swap recipes, tips, and stories from along the way.

$25 wristband includes any 10 tasters and special 25th Anniversary glass.
