My girlfriend drove me down to Escondido yesterday to finally visit Stone and it was everything I expected

We went to the Bistro first and peeking around the company store

We sat outside and had some appetizers and beer of course, we ate the spud buds, which are garlic mashed potatoes deep fried in Arrogant Bastard batter, they were pretty good, then we had some brown sugar and chiptole potato chips which were not bad either, got my starch in for the week

I had a 2007 Double Bastard, Craftsman Edgar's Ale, Pizza Port Carlsbad Spring Tide IPA, and a Rogue XS Imperial Stout

Prices for all four of the beers were four dollars which was not bad, but three of them were only eight ounce pours

Other beers on the tap menu yesterday were Sierra Nevada Extra Special Pale Ale, 2 Ballast Points, 6 or 7 more Stone brews, Coronado Idiot IPA, Victory Golden Monkey, Lagunitas Cappucino Stout, and many more, I think 24 all together

Some items off of the bottle list were Allagash Interlude, Lost Abbey Avant Garde, Avery Jubilation, Pannepot Old Fisherman's Ale, and Port Brewing's Hop 15

The atmosphere was really cool and I enjoyed sitting in the garden and drinking a nice dark beer, they have a miniature waterfall that runs into a small pond

Service was good and only a couple minutes between each beer, even though there was not many people there because it was mid-day on a weekday

Price of entrees was a bit scary, which is why we elected to eat somewhere else

After leaving the bistro, I got a shirt from the store and enjoyed a free glass of Oaked Arrogant Bastard, then we went on a tour by ourselves at 6 pm with a very nice tour guide, she answered the majority of my many questions and seemed enthusiastic about it

The brewery itself is big and they are still expanding, I tasted some dry malts and learned about how much pale malt Stone uses in each batch, saw all the different tanks and went step by step through the process

She showed us a batch of Scotch Ale that they are working on for about the third time, but she does not if it will ever be available at this point in time

My favorite part of the tour was the final refrigeration room with all the kegs and barrels, saw some Bourbon aged Imperial Russian Stout and Brandy aged Smoked Porter, pale ales that were being barrel aged, and several other goodies that they offer on cask from time to time, cannot wait to try some of the things I saw in this room, I am excited to say the least

Had a Ruination IPA before we left and talked with the lady for a couple more minutes, and then got on our way to Pizza Port in Solana Beach

New addition, Sour Fest rules, best festival I have ever been to and will be going annually now, Compunction and Good Mojo were both amazing

Love this place. Excellent variety of brews in a beautiful building. The courtyard is beautiful to mingle in while enjoying your brew! Definitely going back soon.

Nothin' wrong here. The whole package and then some. More excellent beer on tap than you could enjoy/explore in a week of daily visits. And the featured, special brews by various brewers they employ is a great treat. Believe the hype...they are that good. Oh, and you are not worthy...
