Having visited the main location a few days ago I was intrigued to see if some of their other locations lived up to the main one. A bit hard to find, only a very small sign out front hints at what is inside the building. Once we found the entrance we checked out the small store right inside the door, some pretty nice swag and bottles in there. Once we got to the bar area it was pretty similar to the main location, with a bit more plane noise. Atmosphere was pretty laid back but it was mostly dead at lunch time so nothing to amazing. Service was awesome. Our bartender was great to talk to and never let my glass sit empty for more than a minute. Quality was pretty high all around. Beers in the correct glasses and the building itself was beautifully renovated to fit their needs. Selection was even better than the original location. I know they just had their winter storm event a week or so ago so I can only assume I encountered some of the leftovers. I was able to get a StoneWall, one of my long time wants, and a í08 Old Guardian aged in red wine barrels. They also had a few other leftovers but we had other places to be. Food was excellent as usual. I got the pulled chicken and boar sandwich and it was awesome. Also got to try some of the BBQ ribs and they were excellent as well. Prices on beers were pretty good, food was again a little overpriced but it was quality so thats not a huge deal for me. Overall I think I might prefer this place in almost every way over the main location except the overall vibe. I will have to return for dinner next time I am in town and see if it is any better then. Still an awesome place to have a beer and avoid some of the usual crowds that frequent the main location.

We visited this new Stone brew pub on 24th of December 2013. It opened in May of 2013 and is, as expected, just perfect, typical Stone style. Inside very dark with a great bar, stones are used to deliver the Stone atmosphere, a large metal plate with the Stone Arrogant Bastard just makes it Stone like. On the right side you can see the small brewery. On the left side they have a Boccia lawn. The real attraction is the garden, greatly designed with small fountains, many stones and two bars, just perfect. They brew there own beers here in much smaller batches and the sortiment is changing frequently. We had a Stone Witty Moron - a black witbier and a Racer X from Bear Republic, they have a great guest beer selection mainly from California breweries, great!

The original review I wrote was whipped because of length and I couldnít get it back. Hereís my 2nd try... I have been to many many brewpubs, as I am in the travel business and have been a home-brewer from a home-brewing family for nearly 25 yrs. This is the highest rating for me, for brewpubs so far. Ambiance is awesome: take your pick as they have something in every category. Service was without question incredible; i.e. no need not attended to. Except for the incredibly odd and delightful bathrooms (yes you have to see it to believe it), I was always offered immediate assistance for my brewpub needs. The selection changes constantly with the sheer volume of numbers, but in no way was I disappointed - and I didnít even glance at the bottle selection, but from what my neighbors were ordering it really looked exceptional. All the Stone selections I wished to try from the Stone website list were gone. But the other SoCal selections were great. The food selection impressed considerably with a a choice of Vegetarian, can be made Vegetarian or Vegan label on applicable items. An exceptional place for an evening out for beer.

This is straight up wow and double wow. Beautiful place as its warm and rough and industrial, artistic, the outside feeling inside, man! A big bar area with lots of bar seating as well as tables in the bar area. Then thereís the restaurant too, is that a creek running through that dinner table right there? What! Lots of outside seating and tables and areas to relax that remind me of Lagunitas outside area. And thereís a tasty eclectic health conscious food menu and a long tap list with a longer bottle list along with offerings brewed right here. I love that. There were three or four bottles I so much wanted to order and try but that would have run about a C-Note for these particular bottles. Some stuff can be pricy. Stone is doing it up right and has dialed it in since my first fateful visit to the Escondido location when the restaurant opened in í07 (which sucked ass). I like how they have a growler filling area away from the bar and restaurant, how smart is that. I canít wait to head here again.

A seeming recreation of the elaborate setup in Escondido. It doesnít reach near the same level of elegance, but it is a damn nice place to enjoy a meal and sip on a few beers. Itís located very close to the airport, so you will hear loud airplanes every now and then. Prices are on the higher side for what you get, but the food is very good quality. Draft list is very good, but not as good as the other location. Good place to stop en route to the airport if you have some time to kill, but inferior to the Escondido location in almost all respects.

Stopped by with the wife. Incredible setup, huge, indoor and outdoor. Nothing like it, just beautiful. Massive selection, it was a sour beer day, but I got a Brunch Weasel and Heirloom Pumpkin Barleywine. Had some heavy hitting bottles from Stone and beyond but way on the pricey side. $14 for Brunch Weasel 13 oz. and ) $16 for the Heirloom. The $26 for a 3F Oude Geuze Golden Blend 375 ml was crazy and I didnít pay that, but decided on a $22 bottle (250 ml) of Cognac George! for $22--I was buzzed at that point. Come to bottle share things with others and maybe the hit isnít so bad. They have a retail store and I grabbed a Southern Charred and some Stone Dog Bones here as well for my pup back home. Food was awesome, got the crispy Brussels sprouts and duck tacos. Fantastic. Knocks: Service was slightly slow and a low flying airplane came by every couple minutes sitting outside. The planes really, really hurt what is otherwise an incredible atmosphere. Also way pricey. Overall this is a must visit, just get your wallet ready.

This new Stoneís venue is very cool. Closer to the center than the brewery, nice interior and exterior ( I wonder whoís the architect!) very good service both at the bar and at the table, dinner was good with also lot of vegetarian selection. Beers simply Amazing!!! Had stone enjoy by(outstanding) , cascade brewing Kriek Russian river on tap and many others! May be strange but I liked more this location than the classic Escondido one! Try it!

My new favorite place to take it all in. I love the Liberty Station on sight brews. Crimson Gare Keeper was very good. The BLT here is great too.

If you want a Craft Beer experience with a difference go here. Imagine a combination of a Japanese Garden, a spa, a 5* Hotel, a brewery tap, a massive beer garden, a castle and a holiday resort. Sprinkle in Stone beer and some great food served up with real class. Stone didnít need to go as far as they did with this place. The fact that they did anyway makes it all the more fantastic.
