Hard to be objective about Stone as I'm such a fan of their work, but here goes.
First off, get a good map and/or directions before you go. Calling the brewery was frustrating as the don't answer their phones and have a very fast, not helpful verbal direction on how to get there. Had to stop for directions.
Once there, the place is brand spanking new and very nice. Heavy on stone (duh) but well set up with a nice sized dining room, tasting room/reception/swag store, and a huge ass brewery. Snagged a couple tickets for a tour and had to scarf down an appetizer as to not miss it.
Tour was impressive, and the tour guide was pleasant, but not really informative, at least to my beer geek ears. The walk in, heck, drive in cooler was really awe inspiring for all the barrels, kegs, cases, etc. of all the different world class beers, not just Stone, but Victory, Germans, Belgians, etc. etc. etc.
After that we sat and split a Buffalo Burger, which was nice but a little dry. The appetizers we had before were much better (Spud Buds - deep fried mashed potatoes; and fried mushrooms).
Service was good, but the place wasn't very busy mid afternoon weekday.
Afterwards we walked around the gardens which were very pleasant. Hops and olives grew freely, water flowed, sun shown.
Beers were nice and selection was good, but not what I expected looking at the sample beer menu online (disappointed at the lack of Pliny which I really wanted to try).
All in all, definitely glad I took the time and trouble to get there from San Diego.
Really guys, fix those directions.

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.
