Firestone Walker

It began innocently enough: a couple of brothers-in-law sitting around debating the subject of good and bad beer. Instead, their search for a decent ale led them to brew their own. Given Mr. Firestone’s winemaking bias and Mr. Walker’s complete lack of fermentation experience, they believed 60-gallon oak barrels were the appropriate vehicle in which to create their perfect elixir.

Ballast Point Brewing

IT BEGINS WITH THE
SEARCH FOR FLAVOR

The perfect balance of taste and aroma. An obsession with ingredients. An exploration of techniques. And while we savor the result, we’re just as fascinated by the process to get there. What started as a small group of home brewers, who simply wanted to make a better beer, evolved into the adventurers known today as Ballast Point.

Discretion Brewing

We define Discretion as wisdom, wit, and kindness. These qualities shape our interactions with each other, our ever-growing circle of customers, our community, and our beer.
