Foursquare Tips

  • Ballast Point's first brewery restaurant is a certified hit, thanks to its Little Italy location, 50 taps of beer and a beyond the traditional brewpub menu by chef Colin MacLaggan.
  • Habanero skulpin! Spicy goodness in a delicious beer
  • Awesome beer and good food! Dorado is a favorite.
  • Great brews though they sadly don't do tours. Get the sampler and take it from there - be sure to have at least one pint of the Sculpin though SO good for the soul.
  • Tip the staff well.. it will pay off! The staff are incredibly knowledgeable and will help you with any questions! They're just great period! Try the grilled cheese.. it's amazballs!
  • Indra Kunindra.... I love yoooouuu
  • Ask for the Seva specials. (#1, gnocchi with short rib, #2, pickled beet salad with seared albacore.) Both are life changing!
  • Can't go wrong with a sculpin!! Sculp sculp!
  • Good beer, one bad server and fairly poor "order counter" type purchasing system. Tuna tartare was amazing though
  • Noisy!! Good burger
  • I'm not an avid beer drinker but I Love the taste of the beers here! They let you taste test before settling with one. Food here is great! Seating on the other hand is limited when it's busy.
  • This was a walk from where we were staying in Little Italy, but worth it to try some of their special one-offs that you can't get in most other places. I wish we could have gone back for more.
  • Cool spot. Menu looked good too.
  • Excelente!!
  • Make sure to grab a bar seat... Sure way to ask the bartender what's good and learn their faves. Diggin the habanero beer!
  • Don't be afraid to dip your pretzel in the sauce at the bottom of the mussel plate.
  • Peaches and cream ale is dangerous! So good!
  • Try the Big Eye-- a mix of Big Eye IPA and a porter. The flavor comes in waves of hoppy then sweet then hoppy.
  • Fish tacos are the truth!
  • Order food in the back at the kitchen & beer at the bar. Luckily your tab is accessible at either.
