A brewery where you can bring the kids! Beautiful grounds where you can end your day beer tasting adventure. Be sure to buy tickets to the tour and tasting of Stone beers. Stone selection is IPA heavy, not my favorite but my friends love their beer. There are some light beer choices that are not brewed by Stone but still very tasty.

This is a really cool place for beer lovers. Although, I don't really like their beers. The atmosphere is awesome, lots of greenery, fountains, etc. The guided tour is quite interesting, however planning an event there was a chore.

Stone Brewery boasts some of the most beautiful grounds I've ever seen in its league. The sprawling outside patio is surrounded by jungle-like flora, heat lamps, and tiki torches, making it feel almost like a Disneyland ride (thinking the Enchanted Tiki Room or Jungle Cruise). Even the tables are roughly cut, smoothed wood for a natural feel, or solid slabs of marble flanked by scrubbed wooden chairs and topped with tiny candles that make the entire patio glow with a romantic, intimate ambience. We walked around after dinner and marveled at the glowing ponds filled with live fish, the fern trees and lush foliage surrounding tucked-away private tables, and the second full bar at the opposite end of the grounds that had a flame burning straight out of a rock slab.
But the food - oh, the food - is the piece de resistance. The menu is eclectic, with creative spins on contemporary dishes that somehow work just perfectly. The recipes are lovingly handcrafted, including such delights as the chicken schnitzel with garlic potatoes and a lemon-caper cream sauce that was to die for. Other dishes at my table included the Mac & Beer Cheese, pretzels with open seed spicy brown mustard, ribeye steaks, almond-crusted tilapia, and BBQ duck tacos. Each dish was fully consumed and thoroughly enjoyed, with no need for take-home boxes. And to top it all off, we split a decadent chocolate torte with caramel sauce and mousse that absolutely melted in your mouth. I highly recommend the Stone Brewery - I will be back very soon!

One of the most impressive craft breweries I've been to. The tours are informative and similar to many other brewery tours, but the attached brewpub and garden area are fantastic! The food's quality matches their famous brews, and it was fun to wander the outdoor garden area afterwards. If I lived here, I'd find any reason to host an event in that space.

One of the top brewing companies in the world known for their dark and hoppy bears. A bit pricey for the restaurant but the tour was great and of course the beer is about as fresh as you can get with a huge variety. A definite stop on a brewery tour in southern california

An amazing brewery and restaurant near San Diego. As you may imagine there is a huge beer menu with most of the stone beers on draft, along with many others. All together there are probably about 100 beer options. I recommend trying the seasonal selection or the porter if you like dark beers.
The atmosphere is amazing as well. There is a brewery, a shop, a restaurant and a garden that all come together to create this huge beer destination. Inside there is a huge open space with open walls, which lead outside to a pond surrounding a bar and bonfire, along with a garden and stream, spotted with wooden chairs here and there.
The food is good but not great. I was here with about eight people and most were much more impressed with the beer than the food.
All around this is great place to check out.
