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.

As a San Marcos, CA local this is my favorite brewery to relax at. Stone beer is not necessarily a favorite of mine but the atmosphere is wonderful. The grounds are unmatched in beauty by any local brewery- even families and children don't seem out of place in the beautiful garden. They have a great guest tap list and the brewery tour is a nice touch.

All the beers I have tried from this brewery have been a complete disappointment, I can not understand what all the hype is about.

Your arrogance does not exempt the fact that you cannot put out a decent brew other than IPAs without stealing the recipe from a homebrewer or collab.
