This was my first stop on my trip to San Diego. It was barely noon when we started to head towards the airport in search of the legendary Stone World Bistro and Liberty Station and we got lost a few times, eventually going into a navy base and then navigating through the interesting gated community style location of the brewery.

We walked in and were immediately greeted by a server, instead of getting a table we went for the bar option. Sitting down and taking a look around the place was done up with rocks and water and the stone logo all over, there was a big court yard with fountains, tons of space.

Big tap list, I would say 30+ beers total, some raritys (an '06 Arrogant Bastard) and one offs from the brewery. The el dorrado IPA was my first pint and the thing was fresh and bright with hop aroma. The food menu was a bit pricey so I just went with a BBQ sandwich (which was ok). The next beer was a barrel aged smoked barley wine, which blew me away. There weren't many people there since it was so early so we got our drinks quickly and the bar tender was friendly. I got my AHA discount when the check came and left with some merch from the store.

In all, if you are in SD its worth a trip for sure, I would like to go back when its busier and get the full experience, but the beer was amazing from the source non-the less.

Absolutely awesome and huge. No problem getting a table inside or outside. Beer selection is excellent including many from other breweries. Food is great but not typical brewery food. The setting is beyond belief. Go there.

Definitely has a fancy designer's touch with all the stone and garden aspects. Love the solid stone table tops throughout and walking through the beer garden. The food here is absolutely amazing every time we go. My favorite is the pork belly a la plancha sandwich. Don't know how they do it, but it's great every time.

The outside garden is one of a kind...the kind of place you dream about being while enjoying a beer that you can't get anywhere else. Classic and rare Stone offerings. Food wasn't anything I'd run back for, but the environment and beer is like no place I've ever been.

Overall great place... the beer garden outside was really nice... felt like walking through restaurant before getting to outside beer garden... recommend going outside versus inside for beer and food... they even have weddings onsite... had my best beer overall to date "lost abbey deliverance" bottled here... so selection is very good.
