So, I finally visited the Stone Brewing Company last month. What a great place. I did drive right past it as there is no sign on the street.

Anyhow, the gift shop has all the usual accessories, as well as six-packs of Stone beer. They had a tour just getting started the day I was there. We decided to have lunch in the Bistro, and the food was very good. I had the Bruschetta BLT sandwich and my wife had the Crab Cake. Both were very good, but a bit pricey.

I had the Stone Smoked Porter on tap, and was not disappointed. The service was very good, and our waiter was very friendly. The garden area out back is beautiful, with out-door seating.

Overall, if you like Stone beer, this is a must see when in San Diego.

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...

This is the big-boy of breweries. They do most everything right - ample parking, although the walk can be a little longer. They do run a lot of tours through here so everything is on a grander scale. Nice bar area, large indoor/outdoor dining area with removable walls depending on the weather/season. Stones overall presence is enormous in the craft world, and this presence is notable in the Headquarters facility. A nice gift shop and bottle purchase/growler fill area, which is very crowded when the weekends come by and the tours run through. facility staff are generally very attentive, fluctuating of course depending on how busy they are. Try and find a seat at the bar if two or less people since you can eat/order food but your likely to get your brews quicker on an busy day than say if you had regular table service. The menu is eclectic, although a little pricey. Nice tap and bottle list. They do have a very liberal growler fill policy. Hope this helps. Cheers.
