Face it, sometimes you just don't want to cook. Got a great brewpub or restaurant you want to tell everyone about? Post it here.

Stone Brewery and Bistro

Postby BeerBiker » Sat Nov 18, 2006 6:43 pm

Oh....My.....GAWD! Stone has really got it going on SWMBO and I went down to the brewery today for the tour and to eat at the bistro. The tour was very impressive. The brewery is SPOTLESS and the staff top notch. The tour was informative and catered to homebrewers and wannabes just the same. At the conclusion of the tour, we received a taster glass and sampled some of the best Stone has to offer. After that, we staggered into the bistro for a bite to eat. It was a little pricey, but the quality of food was excellent, as was the service. We were well pleased.

The facility was quite impressive. Needless to say, there was a lot of stone throughout. Even the bathrooms were impressive. If you make it to San Diego, I say it is well worth your time to wander by Stone and take in the the tour. It's about 45 minutes, but seemed like 15. You can carry beers in on the tour and the samples afterwards make a nice cap. I had a great time.

EDIT: SWMBO had the Carribean jerked chicken, which is served with black beans and this killer habenaro sauce. All I have to say is the air around here is not breathing quality right at this moment. :shock:

SECOND EDIT: We've called in the Hazmat team and the insurance adjuster. There will be some serious cleanup required around here and the entire house will need to be repainted. The nuclear regulatory commision has called to see if there was an unauthorized release of toxic waste.

I pretty much knew the new stone brewpub was going to be a good place, too bad I live on the east coast. You have a great beer scene out there in San Diego, Alesmith, Pizza Port, Stone, and Lost Abbey....Lost Abbey's Cuvee de Tomme is ridiculously good. so is their Angel's Share. One of these years I am going to have to take a trip out there and hit all the good places including O'Brien's....

Love the place! I'm going again this Saturday with the wife. We like to sit at the outside bar and get up every now and then and walk around the gardens with our pints. Anyone else going to be there?

There's a good chance I'll be there in the late evening concluding my bachelor party with my buddies. :)

The g/f and I go down there at least once a month. The trout is my favorite. I haven't been there for dinner yet. I've only eaten off the lunch menu. If you're a B movie fan, head down to Stone in the summer. They'll play movies like Army of Darkness and Airplane in the garden.

Stone definitely has a handle on things. They know how to run a top notch brewery.

Awesome. We ended up getting there around 11:30 last night and stayed until they closed around 1:00. What a cool place. The atmosphere was great, and architecture and landscaping of the bar and garden are amazing. I've got to go back to during normal business hours to get a tour of the brewery and try the food.

The beer selection was pretty extensive with a lot of guest breweries on tap and a large bottled selection. I ended up having their 07 barleywine which was a great way to finish out the night.

We were thinking of heading down to S.D. this weekend, but on Saturday or Sunday so we can stop by Lost Abbey and pick up our bottles of Veritas 001. However, this weekend just keeps getting busier and busier. I don't know if it's gonna happen :cry:
