Do you really need to go to a tasting room for beer you can find at any grocery store? Yes, you do. The Ballast Point Tasting Room isn’t so much a tasting room as it is a gigantic, two-story shrine to day drinking, where you go to enjoy the best views in Long Beach. On weekends this place becomes a bro-pocalypse, but luckily it’s so big, you can always find a quiet corner to get away from that guy in a Quiksilver hat shouting about his threesome in Brazil.
