Tell it Tuesdays: Stone Brewing Co.

Restaurant:  Stone Brewing Co. 
Location: 1999 Citracado Parkway
Escondido, CA 92029 www.stonebrew.com

Drink Damage: 2010 Double Bastard Ale | $4, 
33.8 oz. take-home bottle filled fresh off the tap  | $17.50
Interior Swag: Amazing place! Vast space, tall ceilings, urban décor, stonework, wood detail and a view of the 55,000 square foot brewery on site. The large windows open up onto an outdoor patio overlooking a garden, waterfall and pond. Very impressive.
Service: Cute, young Austin was very attentive and friendly.
Food & Drink: The Stone Brewing Co. World Bistro and Gardens prides itself on using the finest in fresh, locally-and naturally-grown ingredients. We shared a light lunch consisting of a delicious garden salad and crostinis with hummus. They sell growler jugs that you can have filled fresh off the tap with any of their year ’round releases to take home.
Go-Back-Again-Ness: I’d love to take my dad. This place doesn’t feel like a bar, and definitely doesn’t serve “bar food”. Perfect for a Sunday lunch.

  4. @Jen — that's exciting! It's kid friendly to FYI.

  5. Cool find Joce! I love places where you can bring home the local brew- it makes for great backyard bbqs.

  6. I brought a bottle of Arrogant Bastard as a Christmas present for my dad back in Slovakia last Christmas. Let's just say he didn't enjoy it. The expression on his face was totally priceless! :)

    I love Stone. I used to live in California, in the Mojave Desert, and the first time I've had their beer was in some shack in the middle of nowhere on the way to Death Valley. Sitting on a porch staring at vast nothing, with my cruiser parked next to bunch of shinier Harleys. It's a memory that will stay with me for a long time. Good times!

  7. Lubos- did your dad at least enjoy the beer?!
