Stone brewing; who would've thought that stone decor would be all over the place? overall the establishment takes on a rustic warehouse aesthetic with an eastern flavor and ambiance. the brewpub has 30 foot ceilings and open onto the beer garden outside with seating throughout.
atmosphere is laid back and similar to a winery in attitude. the space itself in entered from one end, with the bar straight ahead and a second level of seating in back, above the kitchen and restrooms. the patio and beer garden are to the right. the seating spills outside, with canvas umbrellas and trees providing shade.
service is friendly and prompt and quality is great. the waitstaff seems to know about beer, even if it is only about Stone brews. all beers are served in the proper clean glassware with many options and very reasonable prices for high APV beers (eight ounces of a 2009 imperial russian stout was only $4).
selection was great, with about one third of the offerings from Stone in-house, and the rest guest taps and bottles. lost abbey, port brewing, and others were represented.
food was great. the cheese soup was a must-have; extremely good! also, the fried mashed potatoes were excellent as well. very high quality and unique offerings from the kitchen.
overall, this was the highlight of the trip to Escondito for this BA. excellent beer, excellent food, a great atmosphere and friendly waitstaff. highly recommended. cheers!
