Hidden in an industrial no-mans land, this is the Taj Mahal of breweries for sure. A large, literally open building that is as impressive as it is benignly haughty in its arrogance.

My visit was on a Wednesday earlier this month. My first impression was of the bar which peers into a massive glassed-in brewing production where product is born. High ceilings with bizarre asian non-music playing in the background. Nothing but youg lads behind the bar and 30-and-40-somethings males bellied up. The dining area contains five massive multi glass paneled doors that roll up like garage doors exposing the great otdoors to all. The bar surface itself had been recently reshalacked leaving that awful sticky feeling to the touch. Stone walls and an exposed steel beam ceiling make for an itentionally cavernous feel. Several lamps with tin shades with the gargoyle stone image lazer cut into the shade are quite interesting. It's airy and tres beer chic if there is such a thing.

The outdoor garden area is a pleasant mix of stone and flora complete with a tumbling water fall and a small budda placed at the fall's end. Hidden adirondack chairs are placed throughout the garden, sometimes solo and others in small groups nestled about.

My first brew was a Levitation Ale (only 4.4 yet too bitter for the style) followed by an oaked Arrogant Bastard Ale (7.2) which was pleasant as it warmed. A fairly extensive bottle list along with several Cali guest brews on tap. The guest tap list included Avery's Maharaja which was served in a tiny 8 oz glass along with some offerings from Ballast Point, Lagunitas, Port Brewing, and Rogue.

There were also a few stunning waitresses including a blonde who belonged in Playboy.

They even have a trendy store at the entrance which offered such things as bicycle jerseys and growler refills.

The Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens is the embodiment of what has become a success story in brewing. A fasinating place and worth checking it out even if you're not a big Stone fan.

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.

The Stone tasting room is nothing short of the apex of the convergence of beer and culinary culture. The place is massive and gorgeous. The garden area is very kid friendly while the more formal dining area is swanky enough for the nicest occasion. While there were 12 or so Stone beers and a similar number of guest beers on tap, the Stone beers are all widely available. I would love to see some of their more limited beers available for those who have made the pilgrimage. While the beer offering may not impress serious beer folks, the food should - it is creative and fantastic. All-in- all, Stone should not be missed.

Would definitely recommend the IPA soup. Really nice outdoor garden, great vibe and service. The tour is also worth the time.
