My first time to San Diego as an adult, I fly in to San Diego Airport, and get driven 9 minutes to this place. I couldn't have asked for a better first place to hit. It's in a cool area, with attractive architecture and decor. Tons of earth elements, sandy spots, coy ponds etc. Huge outdoor beer garden area for dining and drinking. The beer list was impressive, and included many local guest brews. You can create your own flight of (4) four ounce pours of any draft beer. The food selection was also wonderful, with eclectic ingredients and different takes on old favorites too. I had lamb belly Asian style pork buns. The wait staff was very friendly and knowledgable. They have a large merchandise shop too. I would strongly suggest anyone get to this place.

First day in San Diego and a must on the itinerary is this place. A large spawling complex where there is several rooms, and a large oudoor area and just a great vibe here. Most folks are here for great beer. Unfortunately a long wait for an outdoor seat planted us just off the large bar by the gift shop area. The bar alone can seat 25+ comfortably.

The waiter explained the beer menu with some personalization on what he preferrerd and why which was nice. There are about 15 standard Stone brews here, with about 10 brewed here specifically for the restaurant, and about 15 or so guest beers (Alesmith, Green Flash, etc.). I ordered the single hop IPA which was phenominal, and I also ejoyed two other beers which were good.

Servive was prompt and friendly. The gift shop is a bit expensive but well stocked. Growlers to go which is nice.

Overall a must stop for any BA visiting San Diego.

5's across the board. Excellent beer selection, both in quantity and variety, including beers from other breweries and rare Stone brews. Awesome atmosphere: stone, wood, and iron decor, outdoor beer-garden, no musac. Not cheap, but worth what you get.

The place is beautiful, really done nicely. The bar room is dope and the outside has a great ambiance. The staff was friendly and accommodating.

There were 40 taps, although over half of them were IPA's. I was looking for something dark or maybe stout, didn't find what I wanted. I chose something else and wasn't disappointed.

The food was pricey and a bit uninspired in my opinion. I thought that the value for money wasn't really there. Not that I was really there for the food but it was a lunch/beer visit.

Overall I love Stone beers. I might go back for another visit but it's not really one of my go-to places when I just want to grab a beer and relax.
