THE BREWSPAPER / BALLAST POINT’S PINEAPPLE EXPRESS
Ballast Point hit a home run a few year’s back when it launched a soon-to-be award winning IPA that possessed a pleasing citrus twist. Joining BP’s famed Grapefruit Sculpin is a brand new tropical sensation called Pineapple Sculpin.
This new IPA pineapple innovation offers hop intensity that definitely packs a punch.
And, it’s ready for Super Bowl weekend.
But let's rewind. What began as a one-off small batch specialty for Los Angeles Beer Week event quickly grew to be one of BP’s most requested brews. Fast forward to IPA Day last August, and Pineapple Sculpin was an instant hit with the public.
Pineapple Sculpin is now available in 12oz bottles at Ballast Points four
tasting rooms, and the brewery promises the new tropical brew is flying onto trucks as soon as they get off the line for nationwide distribution.
Memo from Ballast Point management:
“...Now don't let all our new brews distract you from the big game coming up. If you're thinking of hosting your own Super Bowl event with a ton of beer, but don't want to deal with the aftermath - we have you covered with private cabanas available for rent on our patio at Little Italy.
“...For more information or to make a reservation you can reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. We also have game day specials at Miramar, Little Italy and Scripps along with a 90-inch TV at Home Brew Mart.
