Really close to USD. The place is mostly a homebrew store, but there is a nice tasting bar in the back. The usual Ballast Point suspects along with a handful of seasonal and one-off/rotational beers on tap.

The place itself is boring at best being a homebrew shop in a strip mall, but the beer selection is as great as the beers themselves. I wouldnít score this very high because of the ambiance, but the Ballast Point brews are so hard to get, even in SD County, that this taproom becomes a must visit even if it is rather difficult to enjoy oneself in a store.

HomeBrew Mart with WeeHeavySD. Sort of a typical (but well-stocked) homebrew supply shop but in the back there is a little passthrough window where you can sample the wares. Tastes are pretty damn cheap... and they arenít terribly stingy with the samples either. They have a lot of special batches that arenít ever released commercially or that are draught only at this location. Growler prices seem pretty fair as well. I quite enjoyed this spot.

I always drop by for their beer when Iím in the area. Fun space that is always packed, but offers a couple variations on their bottled line of beers. Being down the road from AleSmith is a huge bonus for those driving around SD on beer tours :)

a great little place half homebrew half taphouse for the brewery. They had a ton of beers that are not bottled and are very limited in production. I was so glad to sample them. The service was fantastic and met some cool people in there. A definate must for fans of this brewery!

I walked into this place and it was loaded with homebrew stuff in the front. In the back were about 8 beers on tap with one on cask. The staff was very helpful. They had an Imperial Stout and Barleywine on as well. The guy in the back even snuck me a sample of someoneís homebrew. Worth a trip, especially if youre a homebrewer.

Stopped in during RBSG. This is located in a business office park and can be easy to miss. They have small, but clean and simple tasting room with most of their offerings available for sample or purchase. Brewery tour is short, and pretty much like any brewery tour- tanks, fermenters, and the brewer/owner discussing the beers. Ballast Point is a great brewery, and I think they get overshadowed by the hype surrounding Alesmith and Port. Definitely swing by if you are in the neighborhood. I enjoyed every beer I tried.

A bit tough for me to find at first because I only knew the street at a general area to find them, but the store was easy enough to find. Homebrew mart right next to Ballast Point. You can only go through 1 door though, or maybe I got there too late. Anyways, nice selection of homebrew stuff. Awesome bulk-type selection of most malts where you can just scoop what you want. Lots of yeast and hops, equipment, spices, extracts. Lovely! I wish I had a homebrew shop like this here. The best part is that at the back of the shop thereís a mini-bar where you can get tasters of all of the ballast point standard beers, some of their seasonals, plus some of their homebrew recipes that you can snag the recipe (and ingredients) for. Very nice folk, talkative and interested in what you have you say. Iíd come back.
