I thought that there would be more to try here, only five beers to sample. They were decent though. I especially liked the noble stout, pretty damn tasty. Didn't try the food, it looked pretty pricey and I was still in the mood for more beer. Looks like a pretty awesome dinner stop though.

My wife and I stopped here on a vacation trip. The interior of this pub is somewhat unique because we felt like we were sitting in an industrial environment (the brewing equipment and the exposed large heat vents, etc.) at the same time as sitting in a French cafe. (A patio at the rear of the pub was very enticing on this nice Spring day, but we stayed inside.)
We ordered a 6-sampler tray so that we try all of their beers. (It would have been 7 samples, but they were out of their double IPA.) Except for two stouts, none of the other beers were placed into a specific beer style on the beer description menu (one was listed as a Cascadian Dark Ale), so it is difficult so say that the beers are brewed to style. However, the stouts were right on to style, and the other 4 beers were very tasty.
The food menu has some standard pub fare items, but some that were very unique too. All of it sounded delicious. We were very satisfied with our choices.
A group of octogenarians were finishing up their lunch and seemed to be having a good time, so this place appeals to many. This is a quaint-looking community that we would like to explore more, so when we're back in this area again we'll stop here for more beer and food.

This place is really a very nice restaurant that happens to serve very good beer brewed on site. The food is fantastic! The back deck is a divine place to hang while you enjoy all the delicacies and fine ales! If you're in Ashland then Standing Stone is a must! It's right downtown and within close walking distance of everything. Shoot, have a couple pints and stagger right on over to enjoy some Shakespeare at the Elizabethan outdoor theater!

Been here a couple times now, a few years apart. I really like the way this place is set up. Very spacious with a great back patio. Design is quite nice.
Selection wasn't great. I think they only had 5 brews on tap when I was there. The double IPA was the standout and I had a pint of that after finishing the sampler. The two stout variations (one with coffee) were pretty tasty as well.
Service was a touch slow but that could be pretty random. Food was definitely worth it. Always happy when a brewery has vegan options and this one did. I had the vegetarian chili which was excellent. Prices were very reasonable.
Great atmosphere and the beer is enjoyable. Probably your best bet for beer when visiting Ashland.

What a great town for a brewing Co. like this. This place is really pretty impressive for such a small town You can definatly tell that there was no expense spared while building the Standing Stone. So many things were custom built just for this bar. I love the way they brought the lines down for the Tap handles.
We were promptly greeted with a Hello and what can I get ya.
I started with there Dbl IPA and the wifee wanted the coffee stout. Unfourtunatly they didnt have the Stout. So she opted for a pretty tasty Porter. The IPA was good but probably won't stand out in my mind.
FOOD- we were not to hungry , but grabbed the Black Bean Hummis App. I gotta tell ya . It hit the spot. Perfect with beer.
SERVICE - was really pretty good, A very nice gentleman behind the bar especially on a late Sunday evening.
ATMOSPHERE- fantastic size and decor, very a large and has deck with view.
check it out !

Husband and I stopped in to treat ourselves after spending the day racking 2009 and bottling 2008 Thistlecroft Merlot. We were cordially greeted by staff at the door and that was then followed by an attentive bartender. We shared a Nitro Oatmeal Stout (see review) that hit the spot. Jon orginially ordered the black and blue, but since we are on a budget and you have to pay an additional $2 for fries, he downgraded to the Stone Cheeseburger, medium rare. I had the Margherita wood fired pizza. Burger was cooked perfectly, on foccacia, and all accrutrements were fresh and tasty. House made catsup was a joy and made the toasty cocoa in the stout sing. My pizza was tasty, but I forgot to ask for it well done since few in Southern Oregon have figured how to not serve floppy, underdone crust. (I don't blame them, it appears to be a regional flaw.)
Atmosphere works for us. They desire to be a wholesome local establishment that focuses on local ingredients, and sustainable practices. (They just installed a huge bike rack out front for commuting employees and peddling customers.) It looked like there was a kid"'s birthday party going on out back. This is not just another grungy, quirky brewpub. Thank goodness.

Was here back in September, and just now getting around to posting a review. My sister and I stopped in for both lunch and dinner as I moved my niece into school at SOU. Ashland is a beautiful town, and this place had a good atmosphere inside and on the expansive porch out back. Service was competent and friendly, and the food was fabulous. Salmon was perfectly prepared, and my salad was one of the best I've had in years. Nice Oregon wine selection, and a had a few of their brews as well. Unfortunately, the beer didn't match the rest of the experience. The Oktoberfest was nearly undrinkable (maybe the hoppiest Okto ever brewed), and the IPA was so-so at best. Amber was decent.

Alright so let's talk standing stone. My first trip here about two years ago was great, I enjoyed all of the beers and was impressed with my food.
Fast forward to a couple of days ago. I stopped in just before dinner and got a common ale. Not very good but drinkable, then my food arrives typical bar-b-que chicken pizza pairs well with porter so I got it. I was lost between liking and disliking the beer but I was happy with the food.
The place is bland and would almost be boring if not for the brew equipment being overhead.
I'm not writing them off but definately not going to stop next time. I'll probably stop in at Wild River.

If you noticed that I gave atmosphere a 5, then allow me to explain why. We sat on their back deck, with a nice view. They had live music (acoustic guitarist) and the weather was stunning.
The interior is very utilitarian, with the brewery above the dining area on a grated catwalk. There was nothing to seperate the restaurant and brewery per se. Really cool architecture and location.
Food was excellent. We got a pizza with grapes, artichokes, gorgonzola, and a pesto sauce. Amazing! I've never had a pizza with grapes before. THey have a really talented and experimental chef, love their menu. (they've got tons of sane/normal food too)
Beer was top notch. Highly recommend a sampler.
This is my #1 pub in Ashland!

This is a really nice little brewery tucked away in one of Oregon's most beautiful towns. It's a fairly large place with several seating areas, both indoor and outdoor. The patio area features a surprisingly decent jazz band on Sundays.
The food is quite good - pretty standard pub fare for the most part, but it's quality stuff and not terribly expensive. The house-made ketchup is great, as are the pizzas. Prices are about average for an upscale brewpub; about 4 bucks a pint and 10 to 12 for a meal. Pretty reasonable, in my opinion.
The beer is very good, surprisingly so. They have about 6 - 7 taps, all brewed right there on the upper level of the building. Their porter is downright excellent, as is their double IPA. I tried 4 or 5 different brews here during the couple days I was in town, and enjoyed them all. For such a small, obscure brewery, the quality of the beer is very high.
I spoke to the brewer for a while during my last visit - he's a great guy and a very knowledgeable brewer. He ended up giving me a growler of his as-of-yet unfinished wet hopped amber ale, which was delicious and incredibly fresh.
The service has been good every time I've been here - very attentive staff.
In all, a great brewpub, and the best place I've found to grab a beer in southern Oregon. The lack of bottled beer is the only thing holding this place back from greater popularity.
