Ballast Point to Open Brewery in Downtown Disney

Share This Article

Disneyland is known for having attractions that appeal to young kids or at least those who are young at heart. But now the theme park is offering an attraction that’s sure to appeal to the grownups as well. Ballast Point Brewing Company will be opening up a brewery in the Downtown Disney District at the end of 2018.

Disney approached Ballast Point with the idea and the brewery jumped at the opportunity. Their new location will be housed in 7,300 square feet of space that will include a three-barrel research and development facility, a tasting room, and kitchen. Up to 225 guests can choose from 100 beers on tap with many of those brews only available at the Downtown Disney location.

Although Disneyland does not sell alcohol within the park, it’s been available to guests at Downtown Disney since 2001. However, on the other side of the country, Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom began selling wine and beer at one of its restaurants in 2012. It had already been available in the nearby EPCOT park and now four restaurants within the Magic Kingdom. Adding a brewery outside Disneyland continues that progression and it seems likely that alcohol will eventually be sold within its park. Just give the people what they want.

The Continuing Expansion of Ballast Point

Ballast Point first opened in San Diego, California, back in 1996. In 2015 the brewery was acquired by Constellation Brands, Inc. for $1 billion. Since that time they’ve been expanding their operations. Ballast Point already has six locations in California and in July 2017 they opened their first east coast brewery in Daleville, Virginia. The brewery will also be opening a location in Chicago later this year.
