Weekly Spotlight — 08 October 2012

Hey Ballast Point beer fans, a big ol’ shipment of your favorite brews just landed at our warehouse!! If you’ve been in withdrawal from the highly-addictive and ever-so-delicious Sculpin IPA, you’ll be happy to know that it’s back…and in a brand new 6-pack format. Perfect to grab on your way to your buddy’s house and this time you don’t have to share a bottle!

And if you like a little spice in your brew, we’ve got 22oz’ers of Indra Kunindra – a 9% abv stout brewed with madras curry, cayenne pepper, cumin, toasted coconut and kaffir lime leaf. Super spicy and complex, this is one bottle you might need to share! Grab a friend or two and enjoy over a few dishes of Thai or Indian cuisine.

Also back on the scene: Big Eye IPA, Ballast Point’s signature West Coast IPA, and the Black Marlin Porter, rich, chocolatey and delicious and the perfect brew to enjoy as we transition into the cooler months.

All of the aforementioned tasty brews are heading out to the market this week. Don’t wait to long to stock up though. With near perfect scores on Ratebeer.com, they are sure to disappear quickly!

Brewery News
Big things are happening for the 2010 World Beer Cup ‘Small Brewer of the Year’. Over the summer, Ballast Point added six new fermentation tanks and three bright tanks to their Scripps Ranch facility. In addition, they announced the opening of a third location by the middle of 2013. This will be Ballast Point’s third brewery in the city of San Diego and will have the capacity to produce 150,000 barrels! That means more great things for Ballast Point and more delicious suds heading our way in the years ahead. Win, Win. Cheers and Good luck to the Ballast Point team!
