A massive complex in the middle of nowhere near what seems like a hydroelectric plant and transformer grid. Inside is a massive, upscale lobby, gift shop, giant indoor restaurant with glass walls looking into a very large brewery. Outside is a garden, fountain, coy pond IIRC, bamboo everywhere. Lots of seating outside and inside. Food is pretty pricy and upscale, but very delicious and more exciting than the beer. Tap selection of Stone stuff was pretty good when I was there but nothing that was really "rare" or exclusive to the brewpub. Guest taps were very nice: Ballast Point, Russian River, Lost Abbey. Good selection of non-Stone beer. Very fun place to go, but I think it has more of a family feel or group party feel than beer excursion feel. Definitely worth visiting, but Iíd go in the evenings on a date here or with a group of friends.

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.

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.

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!

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.

Visited 08/27/07. Wow, gorgeous looking place with natural colors and materials everywhere with stone (obviously), concrete, wood and glass. The seats for the dining area were particularly plush with over stuffed leather padding. The draft beer selection nice but seemingly not on par with what others have reported here. I ended up with a ratebeer top 50 bomber of Yulesmith Summer Ale. The food selection looks very appealing. But since I was trying to stay below $20 there were only a couple of options. I chose the buffalo burger @ $17.50. Damn, thatís expensive for a burger. So with that price I was expecting something very tasty. First problem occurred when I was told they only serve it as un-done as medium. Well OK, I prefer buffalo more like medium rare. But medium isnít too bad. So the burger arrived charred on the outside and well done and bone dry on the inside. At the time I was a little too courteous to the help (even though it was dreadfully slow even though the staff out numbered the customers) considering I was served a $17.50 piece of cardboard to eat. After leaving what had happened finally started to sink in. Needless to say Iím very disappointed with the experience.
