Ballast Point is the brewery behind the award-winning Sculpin IPA, the flagship beer in the brand’s portfolio. While brewing Fathom IPA, Ballast Point took the same dedication to the craft that produced Sculpin.
“We’ve always tried to innovate by making what we like to drink, and that approach has struck the right chord with beer drinkers,” said James Murray, vice president of brewing. “At Ballast Point, we love hops and we love IPAs. We saw an opportunity to brew an easy-drinking, lower-ABV version that we and our customers can enjoy on any occasion, while still getting the quality and flavor Ballast Point IPAs are known for. Fathom IPA checks all those boxes.”
NEW FATHOM IPA: JUST THE RIGHT AMOUNT OF DEPTH

To distinguish Fathom IPA from other Ballast Point beers and make it easier for beer lovers to find on shelves, the brewery has introduced bold new packaging and graphics that stay true to its nautical theme. A number of the brewery’s brands that feature more sessionable ABVs and flavors—including Bonito Blonde and Mango Even Keel—will take on this new look as well.
The new Fathom IPA packaging in bold blue, showcases a deep-sea diver submerged in water based on a popular original painting by resident artist Paul Elder.
“Much of our success comes from constantly pushing the boundaries to stay ahead of the ever-changing craft beer industry, especially as consumers’ tastes and preferences evolve. We love the Fathom artwork and name, and think it encapsulates the sense of adventure, new discovery and depth of flavor that defines Fathom IPA,” said Greg Gallagher, senior marketing director of the Craft and Specialty Division at parent company Constellation Brands. “The new packaging will also make it easier for more people to discover Ballast Point.”
The brewers at Ballast Point are also foodies at heart – they even have tasting rooms and kitchens in Southern California and Virginia – and recommend pairing Fathom IPA with unique dishes such as Smoked Mozzarella & Heirloom Tomato Salad, Seared Tuna and Black Truffle Ravioli, Blue Spruce Ice Cream, Mimolette Cheese and Soft-Shell Crab Sandwich.
Ballast Point ensures it delivers high-quality beer from coast-to-coast by taking each of its brews through a system of 300-plus quality touchpoints from grain to glass. Fathom IPA joins the robust portfolio of Ballast Point beers, including Bonito Blonde, Mango Even Keel Session IPA, Longfin Lager, Manta Ray Double IPA and the signature Sculpin family: Sculpin, Grapefruit Sculpin, Unfiltered Sculpin, and more.
