69-Foot Tall Beer Tanks Arrive in Port of San Diego

Four giant beer tanks arrived at the Port of San Diego for a local brewery

Four 69-foot tall beer tanks arrived at the Port of San Diego Thursday for Ballast Point Brewing & Spirits.

The 24-ton fermentation and storage tanks will be used to brew all of the main production beers at its Miramar brewery, including Sculpin IPA and its flagship beer.

All four tanks were manufactured in Ludwigsburg, Germany.

The company had previously shipped most of its equipment through Long Beach before having it driven to San Diego, according to a Port of San Diego press release.

“We are fortunate to have experienced rapid growth recently, and with that we must keep up with increased distribution. We are constantly adding new tanks and equipment to expand production at our main Miramar brewery,” said Hilary Cocalis, Vice President of Marketing for Ballast Point.

Miramar is the company’s main production facility.

Ballast Point Brewing & Spirits also has locations in Little Italy, Scripps Ranch and Home Brew Mart and a tasting room in Temecula.
