San Diego Business Journal

The Trade Street facility, formerly owned by Constellation Brands and operated under the Ballast Point Brewing brand, has been acquired by Connecticut-based Athletic Brewing Co.

Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

According to a press release, the opening of the San Diego brewery will add dozens of jobs to the local market.

Furthermore, the Trade Street facility will help increase Athletic’s brewing capacity tenfold. The brewhouse will need some renovations in order to better accommodate Athletic’s proprietary recipes and processes for its non-alcoholic beers, as per the release.

Production at the new facility is said to start mid-May.
