Ballast Point Brewery (San Diego, California) has officially announced that its 99 calorie Ballast Point Lager is now available nationwide.
Tapped to be the newest member of Ballast Point’s Discovery Series of “approachable, high-quality and great-tasting beers”, Ballast Point Lager is an “easy-drinking and crisp” Craft Lager brewed with a SMaSH (Single Malt and Single Hop) recipe comprised of “100 percent two-row barley from farms in the West and Northwest and a light touch of Apollo hops from Washington growers.” Further benefiting from an assist from a floral yeast character that lends “notes of bread, pear and ripe banana”, Ballast Point Lager (4.2% ABV) comes together to be a “clean, low-calorie lager that finishes dry and effervescent.”
“We’re always developing new brews and wanted to bring beer drinkers a sessionable, low-calorie option they can enjoy on any occasion – from a day at the beach or the lake to their neighborhood bar while watching the game,” Ballast Point VP of brewing James Murray said. “But make no mistake, this is not another ‘light’ beer. Ballast Point Lager boasts the high quality, innovation and flavor fans expect from us.”
Ballast Point Lager is rolling out now and will be available Year-Round. You can expect to find this new low-calorie beer option available in 6-packs of 12 oz. cans, 12-packs of 12 oz. cans, 19.2 oz. single cans and on draft at craft beer-friendly establishments located in Alabama, Florida, California, Illinois, Virginia and throughout the rest of Ballast Point’s nationwide distribution area. Prost!
