LOTs of beer on tap. I don't normally like "fruit" infused beer, but these have just a subtle hint, and are awesome (tried the mango, grapefruit, and watermelon). The venue has simply amazing views from the second floor. We also enjoyed the appetizers.

The food was really good but you have to wait in line, many fruit flavored beers, lots of flavor. The patio overlooks the water which is my favorite part about this brewery.

Look, you walk in and the first thing that hits you is the beautiful view of the water and peninsula. Then you notice that everyone is happy drinking and eating. Upstairs is an outside Millennial's party with a phenomenal view that won't mind a 60-ish guy walking through. Yes, you walk to a bar to order your food and beers, but what food and WHAT beer. The pastrami was the best I had ever had with perfect marbled rye, seasoned pastrami and superb pickled red onions. It was huge! The saison that I tried was really different but was perfect for a hot day. If you are older or just stodgy, skip this experience. It is the typical Long Beach energy and vibe that I loved when working and living here. The only con is the postage stamp parking that Ballast Point shares with other shops. Use the double decker bus and be creative. It's worth getting to the party!

While walking along the marina we came upon this place. When we entered we were told it was all open seating outside, so we had to hunt for a table, found one upstairs. Lot of people having beers. This is a casual place and seems to be popular with locals. This is a self service bar, but if you order food they will bring it to you. We had a lovely view of the water and the weather was perfect. Lots of beer choices.
