Ballast Point gets it. Fishing is the best way to pass time while drinking beer. So all Ballast Point beers have marine-themed names. The San Diego-based brewery began operations in 1996 as part of a journey to drink more interesting beers. They offer a variety of brews, including porters, lagers and red ales, but their breakthrough is the award-winning Ballast Point Sculpin IPA. Try the original or go for the pineapple, grapefruit mango and habanero twists.
