When I drove up, I didn't think this place looked all that fancy from the front, just a big industrial type building in an industrial area. But man, don't judge a book by it's cover.

They did a wonderful job on this place, and I love how they took the "Stone" name to heart here. Lots of beautiful stone work, great gardens, fountains, and lots of space inside. I just grabbed a brew from the bar, wondered around, and marveled at how beautiful this place was.

Quality is awesome. It's Stone, and I've always thought they were one of the best breweries out there. Not only that, but the guest beers were top notch too. And there were lots of them, not only quite a few of their own beers, but at least a couple dozen excellent guest taps.

Service was good, and can't really fault them one way or the other though, all I got was one beer. And they noticed me and served me quickly enough.

My only complaint? A little spendy. But that's a nit pick, this place was great, and I'd love to go back some day.

Stone Escondido was an awesome place. I loved the food and garden. My biggest complaint was the vibe. Unlike other breweries it didn't have that laid back, community feel that I love when I visit other establishments. Either way its 100% worth visiting if you're nearby. The peruvian chicken was so good and the beer is well above average.

Took the 6pm tour while traveling for business. Tour was pretty basic but it's worth it just to see the awesome facilities. Was a little dissapointed in the tasting glass as opposed to the full size pint glass offered with many tours elsewhere.

Didn't have time to stay and eat but the menu looked good (if a bit pricey). Garden area looks awesome and would definitely go again and make time for lunch/dinner if I'm ever in the area again.

Stone was first favorite brewery. I loved Stone so much I made a trip out to San Diego just to visit a few of their locations. I thoroughly enjoyed being out in San Diego and checking out their spots. The only thing I didn't like was the beer selection. That part seems so unfortunate. They definitely had good beers at each spot, but were also missing some great ones that I was eager to try. I figured what better place to get their beers than the actual source. With that being said I would still not hesitate to go back to any Stone location in the future.

A must visit for beer lovers in San Diego! Basic tour, but be on the look out as we ran into the owners on our tour. Overall fantastic place.

The outdoor beer garden in Escondido is amazing. Whenever I have visitors, this is on the "Best of" San Diego lists to see.

One of my top favorite breweries!!! I love the selection of great craft beers at the World Bistro in Esco! They have amazing beer festivals and anniversary parties. The food at the Bistro is so good - and pairs with the beers perfectly. I highly recommend enlightening yourselves!!
