January 26, 2018 - 10:49 am

Alcohol and Disney are two things you don't usually associate with each other. So when adults find out you can actually have alcohol there, the resort truly becomes the "Happiest Place On Earth".

Ballast Point Brewing is opening a 7,300-square-foot restaurant within the Downtown Disneyland shopping and dining district. According to Theme Park Insider, the brewery will be located next to the upcoming Black Tap Craft Burgers & Beer, occupying the space where Build-A-Bear and Ridemakerz used to be.

The brewery/restaurant will feature a taproom serving Ballast Points best as well as "exclusive, custom, limited-edition beers" available nowhere else. Plus, catering to the 21 and over crowd, the restaurant will have a tasting room and an outdoor beer garden.

In a statement from Ballast Point Brewing's President, Marty Birkel, they couldn't feel anymore "honored to work with such an icon in" California and "and become the first brewer at Downtown Disney."

"We hope SoCal locals and visitors alike will enjoy the wonderful atmosphere, seasonal cuisine, and good cheer (and beer) of our signature tap room experience that we plan to bring to Downtown Disney." Birkel says.

According to Thrillist, Ballast Point's Downtown Disney location will be their first spot in Orange County and seventh location in California.

Ballast Point Brewing in Downtown Disneyland is slated to open by the end of 2018.
