Ballast Point

After developing a taste for beer in college, founder Jack White decided to try making more interesting beer than he could find in the store or at a keg party. Jack, along with his college roommate Pete A’Hearn, began home brewing in their apartment at UCLA. In 1992, Jack opened Home Brew Mart and his plan was to one day take this hobby to the pro level and start a brewery. In 1996 Ballast Point Brewing was born with the addition of a “back room” brewery behind the shop. Today, Home Brew Mart remains in its original location, but a larger production brewery in Scripps Ranch exists as well. Ballast Point is the perfect balance of taste and aroma. With an obsession with ingredients and an exploration of techniques, Jack and Pete still are fascinated by the process that leads them to the result on store shelves. What started as a small group of home brewers, who simply wanted to make a better beer, evolved into the adventurers known today as Ballast Point.
