Overview
More
Stone Brewing was founded in 1996 by Steve Wagner and Greg Koch in North County San Diego, CA. It is the largest craft brewery in the southwestern United States and has been named "All-Time Top Brewery on Planet Earth" by BeerAdvocate magazine - TWICE! A recently announced $26.6M expansion plan (that includes a hotel among other lofty ventures) is underway, as are developments to become the first American craft brewery to open a brewhouse in Europe. The adjacent Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens plays host to countless wildly popular beer and dining events, and is the largest purchaser of local, organic produce in San Diego County, including a growing amount from their own Stone Farms! In addition to promoting ethical eating, the restaurant boasts a lush one-acre outdoor garden as well as a line-up of 32 rotating taps and 100+ bottled craft beer selections for guests to enjoy.

This place has an awesome setting, grounds and restaurant/ brewery. Beer and wine selection is good! The only problem was the dinner menu which is not mainstream and our eaters couldn’t find much to enjoy. Prices high, portions small. Wish they had a good burger...More

The grounds are very pretty but the price of food and drink seemed very overpriced. We left without ordering anything.

For $5 per person, you get an excellent tour of the Stone brew making process and facilities, and a tasting flight of four beers. Our guide, Brendan, was very knowledgeable about the company, its history, the process of making beer, and the beer flavors. We...More
