When one Ballast Point story leads to another…

As part of my research for a Beer Advocate Magazine feature I am writing, I went down to Ballast Point to talk to Yuseff Cherney about the distillery he built on site. We decided to tour the brewery first, since that is how the distilling process begins and it turns out that they are in the middle of a HUGE expansion. Apparently, they only owned half of the building they are currently in until a few months ago when their neighbors moved out at the little brewery that began in a home brew mart in Mission Valley knocked down the wall to double their size.

He pointed out some really crazy things about their expansion process, everything from giant silos to quality control mechanisms. I thought it was so interesting to be in a working brewery that was getting bigger as we talked so I asked him if I could take some photos and tell the world about their bigger place. He obliged and thankfully, the Weekly let me write about it from a field trip perspective. That is, until we get our own brewstillery!
