While Disneyland has always been a place designed for people of all ages to have fun and experience the magic together, many people assume that it’s a place meant for kids and young families exclusively. While it certainly does cater to the young and the young-at-heart, Disney’s overall lack of adult-oriented entertainment has caused many to place it within the same realm as Sesame Street and Chuck E. Cheese. Disney has been making strides at catering to adults with efforts like adult-only sections on their cruise lines and high-end bars in Orlando’s Disney Springs, but The Golden State is about to get its own taste of the mature life.
Disney will be constructing a 7,300-square-foot brewery called Ballast Point Brewing in the Downtown Disney area. Guests 21 and up can sip on Sculpin IPA and the Commodore American Stout, including some “exclusive, custom, limited-edition beers” that can only be enjoyed within Disney.
The experience hardly ends there.
Guests who haven’t yet reached 21 can still enjoy Ballast Point Brewing, as the brewery also has a restaurant that serves foods accentuating the “taste of San Diego.” The brewery’s president offered his sincerest pleasure at being able to work with Disney to bring their crafted beers within the Disney kingdom: “We hope SoCal locals and visitors alike will enjoy the wonderful atmosphere, seasonal cuisine, and good cheer (and beer) of our signature tap room experience that we plan to bring to Downtown Disney.”
Ballast Point Brewing is set to debut at the end of 2018.
