one of the 1% of places to go and have a beer, this place gets buzy come lunchtime. Come early if you want a tour. Beautifully designed, with lots of light coming in, incredible draught selection and bottle selection. Lots of classy stones in subtle places. Though we didnít eat, just about everybody came for the food as much as the drinks. Everything served at the right temperature, state of the art system. taps had changed dramatically from the weekend. Service was excellent, the guys knew their beer at the bar, the girls serving the tables asking them details on every beer. Too cold for anyone to eat outside, but the flame and the pond with japanese fish was a riot. I spent way too much time here, taking up the time I could have used for 3 more pubs, but it was worth it.

The gardens are absolutely amazing, the beer selection is awesome both on the house side and the guest tap side of things, the food menu is eclectic and flavorful, the place is beautifully decorated, etc. They have created a heavenly bistro for beer lovers in a most drab industrial neighborhood. Very impressive!

Wow... just wow! This place was freaking fantastic. I had heard it was nice, but that just doesnít do justice to the actual location. As mentioned in all of the reviews, this place is very upscale. Gorgeous surroundings with a nicely landscaped garden, stone paths leading through them to a bunch of separate semi-private areas where you can lounge on recliners and Adirondack chairs while having a pint. The dining area is equally impressive, intimately lit with detail lighting, candles and space heaters by each table. Inside, the bar area is very nice, low lighting and some soft music that never rises to the point of being obnoxious. Servers were attentive and professional. The menu is impressive as well... upscale casual is how I would define it. I had the 40 clove garlic chicken served on a bed of roasted summer squash and chesse ravioli while my wife had some tempeh shepherds pie and both were awesome. They were certainly more pricey than typical brewpub fare, but they were priced very competitively for what they were. There were loads of great beers as well, and they were very reasonably priced. Pints were 4-5 each with about 30 taps being on offer. You shouldnít go here expecting the typical brewpub... it definitely isnít that, but if youíre looking for a special meal with great beer as well, this place would be very tough to beat.

Visited for dinner early Friday evening with the family. Really beautiful restaurant, despite being smack dab in a very ugly new industrial / warehouse district. After walking through the huge stone monuments, I felt transported elsewhere. We were seated outside, and the kids loved exploring the boulders, and the walking paths. The beer list during my visit was not blow your mind incredible, but was full of more beers than I could drink in one night. The food was well presented, well prepared and quite tasty. My wife had the fish special (Sea Bass, maybe?) and I had the Chicken Schnitzel. Both were good. The kids meals were also gourmet, and the kids enjoyed them. The service was friendly, and really engaged. I think we talked about every single beer on their list! The setting itself was the highlight, unique, beautiful and highly memorable. Also, thanks to my wife for driving!

Great venue. Largely open to the outside. Nice list of tap and bottle beers. Menu is rather trendy. Food was quite delicious. No rare Stones on the list, but the guests were impressive.

This is like Disney for adults. one of the prettiest breweries I have ever seen. Just a perfect setting and restaurant. Great food and beer and service. This is near perfect.

Like Liberty Station this place just leaves my wondering what people are thinking when giving their rankings. Yes, its is a world class beer garden, hell its probably the most beautiful yard Iíve ever seen, but this isnít a landscaping competition. By the way, the astro turf grass is just weird. My problem with Stone is the beer. Guys, have stuff on tap that isnít already distributed all over the world, and if you donít make sure its make better on tap than in the bottle, which it isnít. Liberty Station actually had more beers that arenít readily available. There wasnít one new beer on draft I havenít had, thatís crazy. Guest drafts were boring. A huge bottle list, but nothing special. Food is excellent and fresh. This is a restaurant that has beer and should be visited and reviewed as such.

We caught the incredibly slow "Sprinter" (how ironic) from Oceanside to Nordahl Road and had a pleasant 15-20 walk over to Stone. First off we almost walked past the place as it was not quite what we had anticipated. I expected to see Stone logos blazoned all over the place. In reality outside looked like a large office building. Inside it is very different - large and modern. We picked up some tickets for a tour at the gift shop, then headed to the bistro for lunch and drinks. There was also a nice patio area to enjoy the sun. There is a fairly large tap selection of core Stone brews, collaborations and world-wide guest beers. Bottle list included vintage Old Guardian and retired stone brews such as StoneWall and Anniversary/Vertical Epic beers. Food was very tasty, if a touch pricy - I opted for bbq duck tacos (yum). Then we went on an excellent tour of the brewery and tasted all the beers on tap in the shop. For me this is a must visit destination in California.

Maybe the nicest commercial place I have ever had a beer. What a kick ass place.

Great place, and canít wait to return again. Went for Sunday brunch. Looking at the beer menu, they have 64 bottles to choose from and 30 taps. Pretty tables, nice huge glass wall showing the brewery and some wood barrels. I have had all the regular Stones (except some of the anniversary and verticals, which they didnít have at this time of year). Was very pleased to see that they had 2007 Angelís Share which I got a bottle of for the first time. Had a Berliner Weisse too. Service was good. Both the food and menu were great. I had a Buffalo Burger with Rogue Blue cheese, and Arrogant Bastard Onion rings. Very good, but the waitress said that they only cook medium and up (no medium rare burgers). Still amazingly good, and worth the trip alone. Outside was nice, gardened area, but didnít spend too much time out there because it was over 100*F. Food was also extremely pricey, as well as all beers not on tap. Still plan on returning!
