Ballast Point Launches Roots to Boots R&D Program
By now, most of you know that we installed the brewery at Little Italy for research & development. We wanted a space to introduce new recipes, new techniques, and even new brewers. On that last note, in November we launched an R&D program that will give all of our employees an opportunity to brew an original beer recipe.
The program, dubbed “Roots to Boots,” brings together teams of two to five Ballast Point employees to concept, formulate, and even name a beer of their own design. Teams brew their beer on our pilot system, and it is then served at each Ballast Point location.
Ballast Point was born out of the experimental efforts of a couple of home brewers. Though we’ve grown, Roots to Boots is one way we keep that spirit alive.
We’ll serve each Roots to Boots beer in our tasting rooms, and we’ll announce them here as they become available. Try them and give us your feedback.
