Cool place with many of BPís best standards on tap, and both times I was there a few special ones were on tap as well.

Nice little brewery located in an industrial park just East of the 15 freeway. Service is quick, polite, and efficient. Patrons are cool and laid back. Place is a little small, but so are most bars. Outside the brewery is a large lawn you can relax on after you drink. On the day I visited they had Victory at Sea and Sculpin along with I guess 8 other beers on tap. Glad I went. Brewery is in close proximity to AleSmith and Green Flash.

Funny location for this place, but good beer and good service. The other BP is better.

Stopped in last Saturday after visiting Lost Abbey and AleSmith. Small bar in a packed little room - the bartenders were very nice and I got to try their barrel aged Porter which was delicious. I really enjoy their Sculpin IPA and was hoping to try the Habanero version. Very cool local brewery with lots of people drinking and having a good time.

There is a small tasting bar with 9 taps and a hand pump (which was not in operation). Next to the bar is the cooler with bottles for purchase. The prices on the bottles are quite good, much lower than I generally pay at bottle shops. The growler and draft prices are fair and I like the fact that they offer a few different sized growlers, although I donít see myself ever purchasing a 1 gallon growler of anything. The young lady tending the bar was quite nice and talkative, and was very helpful to us and the other patrons. A cool place to check out, but not necessarily much to do there. The inside is also fairly small, so I would imagine that it can get cramped when they are busy.

great brewery with a great little tasting room. you can get full pints if you want but i usally just do tastes. however, they had Sculpin on tap, so i had to get a full pint of that! Also bought a few bombers of it too. When i was there, the staff was very frienly both times. a definate must if your in SD.

Small place can get crowded easily, with mostly standard BP stuff on tap. If you are in the area it is worth a stop by, ballast point makes good beer, but itís not a destination in and of itself. Alesmith is close by.

I was pretty disappointed with the tap selection- maybe one beer that isnít easily available in bottles. Sculpin was fresh and on cask, but the cask conditioning flopped and the beer was disgusting. However, we waited around for awhile (standing room only Iím afraid), but we were given a personal tour of the brewery and ran through the process quickly, played around with the different hops they had refrigerated, and got to go into where they are distilling their own rum, gin, and whiskey! Not bad.

Jam packed when we visited on a Friday afternoon. Small inside space, but spillover onto the front lawn. Quick and friendly service despite the throngs. Quick peeks into the brewery through the serving area. Worth a stop for sure.
