The grand opening of the first Stone establishment in LA was today, but I was in a few times during the soft opening. I thoroughly enjoyed each visit. Of course, kinks are being worked out, but overall I am thrilled to have this place near me!

Located in the Del Mar Metro station, in the same courtyard as The Luggage Room and the police sub-station, Stone has a patio with about eight tables and windows lining the front of the store. Parking is available in the garage on Raymond, and is free for 90 min. Take the elevator up and you are there. Upon walking in, the place looks sparse, but not lacking. Various merchandise lines the walls with a few racks for clothing scattered about. The lighting is modern and comfortable, and the vibe of the place is a modern, industrial (think classy industrial, not steel plant industrial) sort of feel. The smell of beer permeates the nostrils and makes your mouth water for rare Stone beer. It is a small space, but with lots of room to stand around and have a beer.

Speaking of beer, that is why you are reading this—right?—there is 10 (I think) taps behind a bar with two cash registers. All the usual suspects feature in the lineup, with growler fills, 4oz tasters, 10oz pours, or pints available for purchase. Prices are great, same as in Escondido and vary based on the beer. Since they had their soft opening, I have been able to land growler fills of Enjoy By 11.9.12 and Mint Chocolate Imperial Stout. Special releases will be a regular feature here, from what the staff told me. Also, ask if they have any special bottles for sale, as I landed a few bottles of 2010 Bourbon Barrel aged Old Guardian. The staff is friendly and helpful, even as they work out efficiency in the new spot.

Plain and simple, this place is great. You can get a growler of special, or the awesome regular lineup, of stone beers in Pasadena! That is simply awesome!

This will be a regular stop to buy beer, or do the pub crawl in Old Town.

Very cool place, I stopped by on our way home. Took the kids and wife in and they really enjoyed the atmosphere. Everyone is very relaxed, fast to serve and extremely knowledgeable when it comes to the description of the brews on tap. The selection can seem a bit small; however, given it is a Stone Company Store, I'd say their selection is amazing. If you're expecting this to be like their Bistro or any type of restaurant environment, you are sadly mistaken. This is a company store with merchandise and beers on tap for Growler fills and sampling. It's still worth visiting, just don't get your expectations up.

This place is the perfect spot To read a magazine and try good beer on a day off - catch me here pretty much every Wednesday / have a couple brews and walk over to slaters! I love that they have a twitter so I could kno exactly what days I should stop by to grab the fresh stuff and the stuff from stone farms . The staff is dope and they're glassware is super cheap I'm lucky I only live like 20 minutes away / growler fills are under 10 bucks .. War enjoy by! And War sublimely self righteous!

One last thing - the vibe here is perfect it's jot a bar it's a store/ no fuckin TVs with cavemen just looking up at them just beer brah

Others have said it but it's worth stating again, this place is for growler fills and merchandise and little else. That's not saying it's not worth going to, it's just important that people know what to expect before going there. No food. No TVs. No indoor seating.

They do samples of their beers, of course, and they have some bottles for sale but generally nothing too fancy. They do special/limited beers on tap twice a week I think (Tuesdays and Fridays)--the other days of the week are generally slow. The one thing that keeps me coming back is they get the Enjoy Bys on tap and in bottles (even the ones that aren't distributed in SoCal).

Check out their web site, Twitter, or Facebook to keep up to date with their special releases and events.
