    As we’ve previously announced, Ballast Point, the popular San Diego-based brewer, will open its first Orange County location in the Downtown Disney District at the Disneyland Resort this fall.

    The 7,000 sq. ft. family-friendly eatery will house Downtown Disney District’s first-ever on-site brewery, tasting room, kitchen and outdoor beer garden. The high-quality, award-winning beers complement its extensive selection of local, sustainable and seasonal fare – salads, small plates, flatbreads and entrees. The menu will feature its most popular dishes, such as Baja-style fish tacos and a house-made pretzel with a beer mustard, along with items exclusive to the Downtown Disney District location. Entrees can be paired with specialty beers from the extensive beer portfolio. In addition, gluten-free options, vegetarian dishes and a children’s menu will be available.

    We recently visited the experts at Ballast Point in their San Diego headquarters to learn more about the art and science of their craft, as well as its quintessential Southern Californian cuisine. Take a look at what’s in store for guests of Downtown Disney District!



    It’s an exciting time at the Downtown Disney District. The promenade continues to transform with the recent opening of Salt & Straw scoop shop, the newly-renovated upper level of Naples Ristorante e Bar and the reimagination of the World of Disney flagship store!

    My husband is impatiently waiting for an opening date on this, really hope it’s before we arrive on Dec 6th. Apparently 2 days in San Diego beforehand isn’t enough for his craft beer obsession :)

    Well, I think that takes away my hopes for it being open in 2 weeks! Oh well, there will be plenty of other beer to be had :-)

    Thanks for sharing!

    If the brewery kettles aren’t even in yet I would be very shocked if it is going to open this year.

    I suuuuuure hope the way the seat is better at their DTD location than it is at their Long Beach location. :scared: Think Trader Sam's x 10 in terms of seat stalking.

    I’m so tired of this “late” or “fall” 2018 opening for SO much- and honestly it seems like a lot of those they are saying that is 2019- gets my hopes up lol here’s to hoping some of it actually opens on time so us holiday- go-ers can see it lol

    Same here! It’s the same with Tropical Hideway. Dreading the carrot dangling game of SWGE that they will play with us.
