Between Disney’s rose gold Minnie Mouse cupcakes and peppermint candy cane churros, the House of Mouse has been blowing our minds as of late with with its creative (and delicious!) treats. And now, we’ll have something to wash it all down, as the happiest place on Earth just announced its plans to get even HAPPIER: The traditionally alcohol-free park is adding its first-ever on-site brewery!
As Ballast Point excitedly announced on its Instagram page, the collaboration will mark the first-ever on-site brewery for the resort, with a three-barrel brewery, a restaurant, and a beer garden.
The location will be family-friendly, with seating for 225. The 21 and over set will be able to indulge in some cold, refreshing brew, including a selection of classics like the Sculpin IPA, which boasts hints of apricot, peach, mango, and lemon, the Dorado Double IPA (a super hoppy fave), and the Commodore American Stout, which features notes of roast coffee and bittersweet chocolate. There will also be exclusive, custom, limited-edition beers available only at the Downtown Disney location.
What’s more, as Disney revealed, Ballast Point will also offer up an extensive menu of Southern California cuisine, citing “salads, small plates, flatbreads, and entrees featuring local, sustainable and seasonal ingredients” as its mainstays.
According to the official press release, that will include treats such as Baja-style fish tacos and a house-made pretzel with beer mustard. YUM!
“We are thrilled to welcome Ballast Point to Downtown Disney,” Patrick Finnegan, vice president of Disney California Adventure and Downtown Disney, announced. “Our guests are constantly asking for new and innovative dining experiences, and Ballast Point’s selection of award-winning beers, locally inspired cuisine and friendly atmosphere make them a perfect fit.”
We can’t wait to dig in!
