What started as a small group of home brewers, who simply wanted to make a better beer, evolved into the adventurers known today as Ballast Point. Ballast Point Made in San Diego is an easy-drinking, gluten-reduced and low calorie Kolsch with toasted bread aroma and flavor from Munich malt, along with a soft bitterness and crisp finish from Cascade and Mosaic hops. This is our tribute to you, San Diego. International Bitterness Units (IBUs) = 20/100 with 4.2% alcohol by volume. Craft beer brewed in San Diego, California since 1996. Best served chilled.
