From day one, Ballast Point’s philosophy has always been doing what we love, and making what we love to drink. So, naturally, we named the beers after something many of us love almost as much as brewing—fishing. Today, many of the beers are named for fish or fishing terms, and the labels have fish on them as a reminder to always do what you love.
Soon after the brewery opened, our founding brewmaster Pete decided to take his love for brewing into the classroom as a science teacher—inspiring the next generation of homebrewers, perhaps. He is still an active ambassador for our brand, with a wealth of brewing knowledge to boot.
