Neat place. About 10 beers on tap to try. Friendly staff. Good tasting beer. Had 5 beers in bottles (22 oz.) to purchase. The home brew store was well stocked with reasonable prices. A must visit when in SD.

My local HBS. Tiny experimental brewing facility with tasting bar and growler fills of the regular line up. Service is excellent, both with the beer and the homebrew supply. Selection is good and the quality is above average at the lowest.

This is a small brewery with a homebrew shop attached and a tasting bar in the back. Itís fun to go and hang out at the tasting bar to sample the Ballast Point standard brews along with frequent seasonals, specialities and homebrews as well. There are generally at least 6 beers to choose from and sometimes as many as 9. The staff are knowledgable about beer and brewing and usually quite willing to chat. No food and sometimes I get left at the bar or register for a short time waiting for someone, but overall itís a great place and highly recommended as a brew tour stop.

Iíve always dug this place, you can hit up some samples of their finest beers, beers i havent found anywhere else too. Fill a growler, get a keg, you can do it there. The big plus is that its a homebrew shop, an excellent one at that. I always dug a trip to BP. THere is a killer mexican place in the same strip mall, el cotixon. Killer breakfast burritos, killer i say.

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.

The only knock I have on these guys is they donít bottle enough of their better beers. Mostly a homebrew supply place.

Ballast Point is an interesting hybrid homebrew shop/brewery. If you are a home brewer it looks like they carry everything you need, if you just like good beer, the beer tasting station in the back is a great place to sample the Ballast point brews. They also have interesting rare brews available for growler fills or tasting. You can also buy all of their regular bottled brews here.
