ANAHEIM, CA (Q102) - Alcohol and Disney are two things you don't usually associate with each other. So once the adults find out you can actually have alcohol there, the resort truly becomes the "Happiest Place On Earth".

NBC San Diego reports, Ballast Point Brewing will open their 7,000+ square-foot restaurant within the Downtown Disneyland shopping and dining district on Wednesday, January 16.

The brewery/restaurant features 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 has a glass-enclosed bar serving up 50 styles of beer across 100 tap lines. The dining area will feature an exquisite menu prepared by Executive Chef Colin MacLaggan. If that wasn't enough, diners will love Ballast Points' cabana-style seating inside their 3,000-square-foot patio.

In a previously released 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.

Ballast Point Brewery in Downtown Disney is located at the space where Build-A-Bear and Ridemakerz used to be.
