I have been here twice. This is the wherehouse where stone got their start. It is big open and can get cold on a winter night. The 1st time was over 3 years ago then the counter was very small and there was not man places to sit down and enjoy the beer. In the last three years the place have has added a very large counter and added a few places to sit down. The beer here is great! The service is very friendly and the bartender will recommend a beer based on what you like, they are always willing to go that extra mile to help you out. Food trucks will often come here and we had Sushi truck on the Friday night visit. It was crowded on a Friday night but we still were able to found a place to sit. Great place, Great Beer! You are able to get beers from both Port and Lost Abbey. Over all a great place.

I've been here several times. The best time, like most places, is during the week when everyone else is working. This is one place that is on everyone's bus tour, so Saturdays especially can be very crowded. Its is in an industrial park, so parking during the week can be a problem because parking spots are allocated for other businesses, not so much a problem during the weekend when other businesses are closed. Nice large bar service area that can get a little crowded once the outer lying barrel tables are accounted for. Always a good selection with the regular fair and a few BA/limited release stuff on hand. They never pick-up the phone so best way to contact is via email, or follow blog-get on contact list. I have seen CHP parked down at the end of the cul-de-sac on several occasions before you turn into the brewery so be careful. They are obviously waiting to catch an easy ticket/DUI. Nice open air feeling, the occasional food truck (mostly weekends). Security on hand to check ID's, and calm down any riff-raff. Always had a good experience here despite the occasional crowd. Tons of bottles and merchandise usually on sale. 10 mins away from several other breweries, notably Stone. Hope this helps. Cheers.
