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.

Awesome place to hang out. Close to old town. Was not busy at all when I went on a weekend but I expect weekdays may be bad due to it being close to a train station. Beer was cheap and the staff was really helpful. Growler fills are cheap and you can get food from next door to eat in the patio. A must visit!

Love this place!!!! My go to when I need a beer or growler fill. I personally do not live in Pasadena but make the trip up there at least once a week for the awesome selection of fresh beers, the awesome staff who know me by name, and the friendly patrons who I like to strike up conversations with. Highly recommended!

Tip: Check out Stone's event calendar for their weekly Vintage Bottle Releases on Sundays.

Easy to get to, great parking (90 min free), fantastic beer! Friendly staff, lots of Stone stuff (shirts, books, glasses, etc.) and did I mention BEER! Nice tables outside to lounge away the day at...get a pizza next door and have a few more beers...

Perfect kick back spot in Pasadena. I'm really glad there's a Stone company store pretty close to where I live. Great prices, knowledgable and friendly staff, really cool location, easy parking and just a fun time. I like everything about this place. I also noticed you can order food at the restaurant next door and eat in the outdoor section at Stone. Honestly I'm probably going to hit up this spot this weekend.
