Well, itís professional if soulless, with a pretty garden but yet itís all so tacky...like a Disneyland of beer. Nice beer list but not spectacular. Kind of a good but not great sort of place. Worth visiting, mind you, as itís quite unique in the beer world. The food was disappointing, I liked the duck tacos but the tempeh burger was mushy and left a lot to be desired.

Out in the desert in an industrial park. Very laid back atmosphere in the bistro, love all the stone and big window decor. Plenty of Stone and other craft brews on tap and in bottles to keep you entertained. Food is ok but a little pricey. Buy all your Stone wear and glasswear in the retail shop. Iíll be back.

An impressive place! Food, ambiance, style, beer, its all very well done here. The price is a little high, but I guess you have to pay for quality.

I love Stone. Ever since my friend introduced me to them it has been my Beer of choice. The opportunity to go to the Bistro was spectacular. The best brewery experience in the world.

This place is awesome. My girlfriend bought me a trip to San Diego to go here (and Lost Abbey, Pizza Port, AleSmith, etc). This place was great though. The bartenders were great. They have a good selection of Stone beer, other drafts, and an impressive bottle list. Cool store, and they also had some pretty solid food for a brewpub. The beer garden is also fantastic, wish it would have been a little warmer when I went though.

I am a true hater of all things stone. That being said, i must say that i am quite impressed with this place. From the front outside, i couldnít tell i was in the right place...middle of nowhere...industrial looking, no signs, no people...but once inside, its like a little bit of beer -flavored epcot center. Tap list was pretty good...at least in that they had chiptole cask stone smoked porter and Bachus..which, based on the reviews..apparently sucks..but on tap, the reviewers can suck my fucking balls. In any event, the menu was nice...i opted for the pickled eggs & kimchi appetizer..i mean, what the fuck kind of appetizer is that? A fucking tasty one! Entree..chose the sausage platter...the beer mustard and pork sausage were very nice...as was the cabbage...chicken sausage, a little less nice but chicken sausage is never nice to begin with.
Decor...again, very epcot and i love epcot...all in all, quite impressed that a duechie place like stone could create something so cozy. RERATE: can you say 180!!!! Second visit, menu changed and pretty much everything on the menu sounded boring and uninspired...i forgot what i ordered but it was less than average. The beer choices that night were not impressive either...big drop in points.

Visited on a Sunday afternoon in January 2007. Love the decor, definitely something differernt, especially for socal brewpubs who seem to think that pizza shop+beer=goldmine. Caught the tail end of the winter storm selections and did a 04-07 Old Guardian vertical in 4oz glasses, was enough to knock me silly. Well that and the Ballast Point on cask, and the many samples after the tour. Food was excellent, I had the Buffalo burger and loved the anti ketchup stance they were taking at the time. Canít wait to get back there.

Definitely a great place to go. From the outside, it looks a bit like an industrial building from some film noir movie, but inside is very impressive. Garden is a great place to hangout. Beer selection is good, but not outstanding. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Food is very good, but they were out of a few things on the menu (we were there at 5pm on a monday).

I have visited at least half a dozen times since the SBWB&G has opened. First, the ambiance: architecturally impressive, beautifully executed and manicured space. I love it. The selection: awesome. All Stone beers, plentiful guest taps and, during special events like the two annual Winter Storms (so far) rarities from the cellar. This leads us to the problem areas... Food: the food is admirably conceived as organic and local, as artisanal and unusual as Stoneí beers. Sadly, they have produced mostly bland grindage. In fairness, the food has been improving steadily in execution and flavor over the months, so letís just say things are improving. The service is sadly lacking, as in slow and inaccurate. This has not changed over the months. This extends even to the hostess, who wanted to deny seating for my party because only five of the eight had arrived. After using a little logic with her, they said the manager decided to let us be seated. Good move, as we ordered lots of food and beer between the five of us before the rest of the party arrived, who ordered almost nothing. Everyone has a nice enough attitude, though, which goes some way towards making it more tolerable. Overall, I have to say I am as disappointed with the way the place is run as I am impressed with the concept and physical place itself.

I work in Escondido and go to the brewery often. The atmosphere is second to none. You will not find any TVís or music that youíd hear on the radio. Quality is top notch. Food is always hot and fresh and tasty and the beer is cold and quality as well. Service is good. The servers are energetic and likeable. Chipper... almost too chipper sometimes. The beer selection is top notch. The food selection is just okay. I would rather have a beef burger than a buffalo burger and more dishes without all of the fancy dressings and toppings. I like the Mac & Beer Cheese which is probably a heart attack waiting to happen but is absolutely delicious.
A while back I was going to give the Bistro a negative review simply based on the prices... I have since tried more of the food and I think that the prices have come down somewhat over the last year, so Iíve changed my tune. The food is good, you just have to be in the mood for somewhat eclectic and fancy fair. The beer is a little pricey though especially when I can get my comm 1l growler filled with AB for $4 or get a glass of it for $4 at the bar. But the selection of craft brews on tap and in bottles warrants the cost.
