Stone, a symbol for independent craft beer for many people... is an upscale, trendy, and expensive restaurant? Well, the food is expensive but it is very well prepared and unique like their beer and the beer is actually reasonably priced. At the time, they are renovating the kitchen and taps so selection was limited. The service was excellent. Our server apologized profusely that we came for something listed on their website they hadn't even had for over a year and even bought our second round. An army of employees bring food out, clear plates, and refill water quickly. The clear star of the whole experience is the atmosphere. A rather plain building exterior hides massive stone structures with iron work stone walls. If that's not your thing you can always look through the 3 story glass windows where you can see Stone's huge brewing facility. Despite all the intimidating architecture and interior design, it's a very relaxed environment especially when you sit outside and walk through the gardens. Dotted around outside are tables and chairs where you can enjoy your beer and sit quietly, at least when I was there because it was after they first opened. Totally worth the visit and I would certainly love to go back when they finish renovating... if only I didn't live 1000 miles away.

Would definitely recommend the IPA soup. Really nice outdoor garden, great vibe and service. The tour is also worth the time.

One of my all time favorite IPAs. Super crisp, clean and piney. Hard to believe it's actually a double IPA as it's very drinkable. If you like Pliny the Elder, you should like this.
