Ballast Point sails into Verdugo Bar on Thursday

May 20, 2009 |  6:03 pm

On Thursday night, Verdugo Bar will feature craft brews from the nautically inclined Ballast Point Brewing Co. of San Diego.

Ballast-point-tongue-buckler Mike Mellow, Ballast Point's vice president of sales, will be on hand with the company's mainstays (such as Yellowtail Pale Ale), plus some rarer "awesomely crazy beers," including barrel-aged limited releases not typically available to the general public. As crazy as the design and language on the brewery's Tongue Buckler Imperial Red? Only the taste will tell.

"Ballast Point is one of the most exciting breweries in Southern California, brewing some of the most sought-after special releases in beer today," said Ryan Sweeney, owner of Verdugo.

Prices will be $5 to $7, and all drafts will be $1 off between 6 and 7:30 p.m.

Verdugo Bar is at 3408 Verdugo Road in Los Angeles. (323) 257-3408.
