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.

Beer tour presentation was great but loud machines during presentation were deafening, I would not do tour again without ear plugs. Restaurant was great food and service, beautiful gardens to walk around or sit in while drinking beer.

The menu selections are eclectic and tasty, the beer list if just about the most exhaustive and diverse I've seen in the SD area, and the venue is gorgeous - industrial loft meets California patio. A killer combination!!

We actually went to Stone for the food more than then the beer... even though they have a large selection! A great place to just get out relax, enjoying food and time with friends!
