Guests visiting the Disneyland Resort will now have a new place to stop and grab a drink or a meal. Ballast Point Brewing Company is officially open in the Downtown Disney District and is the first ever brewery for the complex.
The restaurat features an open air bar and an expansive outdoor patio. Ballast Point’s décor is inspired by a love of the sea. The main bar wall is inspired by the hull of a ship. In the entry, the beer bottle chandelier is a signature piece, and the wall of tap handles illustrate many of Ballast’s inventive brews. There is also a black and white bistro wall of sketches from Ballast Point’s resident artist Paul Elders that illustrate labels of notable beers over the years.
Ballast Point Brewing Company brings more than 50 beers across 100 taps. Their on-site three-barrel brewing system is ideal for creating limited-edition brews which will be exclusive to Downtown Disney, along with Ballast Point favorites like the flagship Sculpin IPA, Fathom IPA and Victory at Sea.
As far as dining is concerned, the restaurant features a brewpub-style menu, with plates to share, salads and flatbreads, sandwiches, burgers and desserts. A few favorites to note are the soyrizo and roasted cauliflower tacos, duck confit nachos, glazed pork belly appetizer, “Black Marlin” BBQ flatbread and “Victory at Sea” s’mores. Little ones will love crispy chicken tenders, corn tortilla quesadillas, and grilled cheese. Also, unique, Ballast Point will donate $1 for every kids meal ordered at the Downtown Disney District to the charity, No Kid Hungry.
If you’re looking to bring home some merch, Ballast Point has you covered. There will be men’s and women’s apparel, accessories and novelties available for purchase.
The opening of Ballast Point Brewing Company is just one of the many changes to occur at the Downtown Disney District over the past year.
