big, warm and brutally stylish just like Stone. The brewery tour was also excellent. Food was sometimes bizarre and a bit challenging. Itís very much itís own place, itís fun and worth the trek out into the business park.

Definitely worth the trip to the bistro, but donít be surprised that the decor isnít the norm for a brewpub. It is a nice change (really like the water fall and the outdoor fire pit). The place could really use a TV at the bar though!
Personally I donít find the frilly food they serve to be very appetizing with the great beers available. I normally eat somewhere else after the visit but a couple of the appetizers were good. Not a big fan of their main menu.
As far as beers go, I like their large selection of draft beers. This make it a great place to visit often. Despite what the Brew Tour Guide says, Stone isnít the hoppiest nor the best in SD. I live here and there are at least 4 other breweries (Pizza Ports, Lost Abbey, Alpine, Balast Point, Alesmith ...) that have better hoppy beers and a better line-ups. However I think if Stone was almost in any other city it would be my favorite (just not in SD nor Napa area).
Overall, Stone is very much worth a visit and its a great place (as long as you donít mind missing the sporting event occurring) to enjoy a fine beer.

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.
