Downtown Disney is getting a Ballast Point Brewery

(Ballast Point)

A new option to get your drink on is coming to Downtown Disney.

San Diego-based Ballast Point announced Wednesday they are opening a brewery, tasting room and kitchen in the shopping / entertainment district at the Disneyland Resort. The spot in late 2018 and the 7,000 square foot space will house a three-barrel “research and development” brewery (yes, they are actually going to make beer there), New American restaurant and outdoor beer garden.

“As one of Southern California’s premier brewers, for the team at Ballast Point, we couldn’t be more honored to work with such an icon in our great state and become the first brewer at Downtown Disney,” said Marty Birkel, president of Ballast Point Brewing Company. “We hope SoCal locals and visitors alike will enjoy the wonderful atmosphere, seasonal cuisine, and good cheer (and beer) of our signature tap room experience that we plan to bring to Disney.”

In addition to beer, the restaurant’s menu will also offer what it calls “a taste of San Diego” – with some of its most popular dishes from its current brew pubs, including Baja-style fish tacos and a house-made pretzel with beer mustard.
