Big place for Stone World’s "little brother" location. It has the patio just like the original, with plenty (if not more) seating inside. Same aesthetics as the Escondido location, lots of rocks and glass. The service was knowledgeable, helpful, and pretty fast. The selection was awesome, with more Stone beers available than I remember (like 20+). Some guest taps...I don’t remember the bottle list here being half as good as the original, though. Didn’t eat, but looked good. Value very good ($3 4oz tasters are a good deal for most beers, I think). Overall a great place, "it is worthy"!

Close to the airport, Stone is a convenient spot to go after a flight for a quick drink. Finding it is a little difficult, as the area is huge and everything looks the same. Upon walking in, you are awed about the size. Its super nice wood and metal, with a distinct banquet room, dinner tables and outdoor areas. This place is cavernous, too big, doesn’t make me feel welcome. The outside is pretty amazing, worth having a drink at. The bathroom is really cool, you should go to just wash your hands. They have beers brewed there, from the Escondido and local drafts. I had 3 flights and I only liked 2 of the Stone beers. Very disappointing. All the ipas were super malty, where’s the west coast? The JW berliner was cool, but too hot and sour, only for the strong. The food was really good, I’d actually come back to eat only, beer is an afterthought. Not a top beer joint but worth seeing for the ambiance and food.

Interesting place with a great patio area, amazing Stone beer and great food. Service was slow. Architecture was very interesting in this old, barracks type area. Vintage barleywine on tap. Very accommodating and knowledgeable.

So this is what the juggernaught that is SoCal craft beer looks like? No expense spared venue and interior (bloody unbelievable), informed staff to burn, seriously good food and 30+ beers from your own brewery on tap. I’ll pay $7 a pint every day of the week given the quality. Outdoors is awesome for the kids. The best food AND beer venue I have been to globally. Yep was my 40th birthday dinner but I won’t let this create any bias!

Visited for dinner on Friday 18/04/14 around 7.30pm.
About a 15/20 minute drive from downtown SD past the airport, Liberty station is an impressive place in the world of beer set amongst (I presume) old army barracks/stables/lodgeings.
The place was pretty busy as expected but there was only a wait for outside tables so we got seated inside straight away.
Tap list is super solid, standard Stone beers, one off Stone offerings for Liberty station, great guest taps - think Russian River, Alpine and the likes, all available as tasters = tickers paradise!
The bottle list was solid too with more Stone limited relseases inlcuding their 500ml specials.
The service was good but could have been a little better, a bit of a wait from ordering drinks to being asked for food and the guy was a little lazy in that we asked for a bottle of the Stygian Descent (BA black IPA) and he came back and told us it was out of stock. I asked if it was in the shop and he said they had sold out too (which was a dissapointment as I was really after this one). Turns out when we visited the shop there were loads of bottles, so this was a bit lazy ass on his part.
The food here was excellent, I had really good ribs to start and breadcrumbed pork breast for main.
The bottle shop is located towards the rear of the restuarant and carries most Stone offerings including specials, merchandise and also does growler fills (just standard Stone offerings I seem to recall).
In all this venue truly deserves to be called world class and I shall be back here like a shot on my next visit to SD!

This is probably the best beer-related place I have been to. Big place with seats and a bar both indoors and outdoors. 30+ taps with excellent beers. I visited three times in six days, and there were 2-3 new beers from Stone every time. I think I added six or seven beers to ratebeer, thats says something about the rotation on the taps. Great guest beers on tap as well and all the taps are available in tasters. A shop for bottles and souvernirs close to the bar, with a small but hugely interesting selecetion of rare Stone-beers. Service is really good and food was very tasty every time. Interior is beautiful and must have cost a fortune. Only setback is that I dont live near it...

You get what you pay for when you come to this world class bar. If you are unable to make it out to the actual brewery this is a close consolation prize. Located in a converted naval base it is expensive and includes a store, bar, outdoor bar, and probably other things that I missed.
As memory serves the draft list contained 20 options. All were excellent and included about ten Stone taps. Russian River, Monkey Paw, and other San Diego beers were also well represented. You can go for full pints or choose generously sized samples.
The food is world class although your wallet will come out of here lighter. Whether for lunch or dinner you can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. If you want lighter fare there are also appetizers.
With plentiful parking and a few other stops in the area (such as Slaters 50/50) this is a nice place to stop. If I were ever back without access to transportation I would come back without a second thought. You should too.

Wow, visually this place is pretty aamazing, awesome patio, stones and fountains everywhere, very nice. Service is great, tap selection is okay,and a decent bottle selection. Tap prices are good, but bottles are expensive as is the food. Overall a awesome experience.

Visited on 17th March 2014 for an afternoon session of 3 flights of four beers and a pint. Very impressed with the whole set up. We sat in the gardens, away from the water features and outside bar area. We then did a little tour of the inside bar, off sales and shop outlet. They certainly haven’t scrimped when it came to spending money on setting up this place. All the beers were fine and we ate off the ’Meatless Monday’ menu. My Tempeh Sheperds Pie was lovely, as was the wife’s Muchroom Penne Pasta dish. It is not a cheap place to eat and drink, but we thought it good value for the service, ambiance and quality of produce.
