I’ve been to Stone a decent amount of times now, so it’s fair that I should write a small review. Stone has always impressed me with their brewery, the first time I went I had a hard time figuring out what building it was. It’s subtle, but a beautiful location inside. Very spacious and usually get my table (if I having to wait for one), quickly or sooner than my wait time is supposed to be.
Food is always great, and it offers a good selection for beer and food pairings.
Service has been great, have only ever had bad service once out of the two handfulls of times I’ve been there. It’s definitely a must stop for anyone in San Diego for the first time.

The main Stone location in Escondido is, I suppose, like a Disneyland of craft beers. It's a very large and well funded establishment. If you are not careful, it's easy to miss. There was a small sign directing you to the parking lot. Also, most of the brewery is obscured from the street.

From the parking lot, you walk through a tunnel of vegetation (I think bamboo stalks). Once you get to the entrance you check in with the hostess. There's a gift shop right there. It also seems to be the ending place for their brewery tour. There's a large bar area with lots of tables and seating inside. Also, lots of space outside too, with a garden and water features.

It was very crowded and lively. I had a glass of Berliner Weisse and walked the grounds. I had a nice time. Next time, when in the area, I'll visit again and have a meal.

If you like craft beers, Stone in Escondido, is probably a must visit destination if you are in or near San Diego.

Its pretty much what you'd expect: super modern and well-kept, HUGE, picturesque, giant gift shop/store, extensive menu with seasonal and farm-to-table offerings. Very "Stone," and very well funded. The downsides here are that it can get VERY crowded which leads to long wait times, its pricey (especially for food) and service isnt always the greatest.

Your mileage may vary but overall, I enjoy the place...Ive just walked in to turn around and walk right back out (because of crowds) more than once.

An excellent place. Beautiful zen garden with a spring running through. A lot of beers on tap too. I went on a tour, and they show you all the working mechanism of the brewery. Great smell of the wort too!
