Mocha Marlin

Porter with Coffee and Chocolate

Coffee and chocolate come together in this brew.

Our Black Marlin Porter is the perfect beer for a mocha mashup. The addition of coffee and cocoa plays perfectly off the roasty, chocolaty flavors of this English porter, while a hint of vanilla smooths it all out. It’s full-bodied, but not too sweet; try it for breakfast…or dessert.

Red Velvet

This stout takes the cake.

Our Red Velvet oatmeal stout is a mind-bending beer. Like the cake that inspired it, the deep red color comes from beets, which add a rich, earthy character that complements the chocolate flavor and aroma. The foamy head of the nitro pour is our “icing”, adding a creamy smoothness to the mouthfeel. But this liquid dessert still finishes like a beer – not sweet, but just as satisfying.

Add a tickle of tartness to round out the senses, and you get a new brew that’s interestingly delightful.

Imperial Porter with Coffee and Vanilla Flavors Aged in High West Bourbon and Rye Barrels

We partnered with our friends at High West® Distillery to create a barrel-aged version of  Ballast Point Victory at Sea, our award-winning Imperial Porter with cold-steeped coffee and vanilla. From a blend of Ballast Point Victory at Sea aged in High West’s own bourbon & rye whiskey oak casks, new layers of complexity emerge with notes of soft caramel and smoky oak over a dark chocolate and roasted almond body. High West crafts delicious and distinctive whiskeys to honor the American West, making it the perfect pairing with our signature San Diego-born porter.

Calm Before the Storm

Cream Ale with Coffee & Vanilla

A coffee ale with a touch of cream.
Calm Before the Storm came from a quest for a warm weather alternative to our Victory at Sea Imperial Porter. Like its more robust cousin, we infuse a punch of flavor using cold brewed Caffé Calabria coffee and a hint of vanilla. But this time, we added it to a lighter-bodied golden cream ale. The end result is a surprisingly bright, coffee-forward beer that’s perfectly refreshing.

Pumpkin Down

Scottish Ale with Pumpkin

A pumpkin ale that bucks the trend.
Some might think we’re out of our gourd for making a pumpkin ale, but our Pumpkin Down is not like the others.  The caramel and toffee maltiness of our Piper Down Scottish ale is the perfect backdrop for a boatload of roasted pumpkin. Just before bottling, we add a subtle amount of spice to complement, but not overwhelm, the earthy flavor. It was a smash at the brewery, and we think you’ll agree.

Dead Ringer

Oktoberfest Lager

A fresh take on a traditional festival beer.
Our Dead Ringer Oktoberfest lager is inspired by old-style Märzen brews customarily enjoyed during Bavaria’s world-famous beer festival. Thanks to an abundance of toasted malt and a lower hop bitterness, this dark reddish brown lager is loaded with sweet, caramel toffee flavors and aromas. All the taste and celebration of Oktoberfest packed into one bottle; no lederhosen required.

Pours burnt orange to reddish brown in color with aromas of rich sugars, nutty toasted malts, fresh baked biscuits and reserved hop spice. Pilsner Malt, Munich Malt and German Noble Hops all help build those classic aromas into this cold fermented lager. Caramunich Crystal Malt and low bitterness also add to the creamy and complex flavors layered in this beer. Oktoberfest is inspired by older versions of Oktoberfest Lagers that leaned toward the caramel/toffee flavors typical in darker Märzen Beers.

Coconut Ballast Point Victory at Sea

IMPERIAL PORTER WITH COFFEE, VANILLA AND COCONUT

Our favorite porter with just a touch of the tropics. 

This Coconut Ballast Point Victory at Sea takes our popular Imperial Porter to another place. We added sweet roasted coconut to our robust porter brewed with Caffe Calabria coffee and vanilla,  the perfect complement to this beer’s subtly roasty intensity. A favorite at our annual Ballast Point Victory at Sea Day, but it’s worth enjoying anytime you need to be transported.

Although the winters in San Diego don’t get too brutal, the brewers at Ballast Point wanted a warmer, Winter Ale that brings comfort on those days when you can see your breath. This Imperial Porter clocks in at 10% ABV and gets most of its roasted flavor from coffee beans prepared locally at Caffe Calabria on 30th Street. Winter Ales traditionally have a spice, and in this beer we chose vanilla to round out this very special “big” beer. Our Victory at Sea Imperial Porter is infused with ¾ ounce cold brewed coffee per pint.

Orange Vanilla Fathom

Brewed with a touch of nostalgia, it may remind you of a childhood treat, but this one is just for adults.
