Both Black Tap Craft Burgers and Beer and Ballast Point Brewing Co. are scheduled to open later this year, but we are quickly running out of time in 2018 and no opening date has been announced for either one. Construction is still ongoing, but Black Tap did have a job fair back in October, so that’s a good sign.
