This location is a nice garden spot just off Pacific Hwy in Oceanside. At first I did not notice the place but the iron gargoyle gates finally attracted my attention. Once inside the garden I quickly found the taproom and ordered a beer (or two or three). Lucky for me they had just put out a 12-pack of 2004 Old Guardian. I grabbed a bottle to-go (now wishing I had grabbed more) and was on my way. The service was fine and prices quite reasonable for a 12-year old barleywine.
, cool little place very zen-like good selection,
Beers were very good if you’re a hop head LOL. Would have like to see some more diversity in styles I’m not the biggest fan of places where all the beers kind of taste the same. But all in all a good stop! Cheers!
A very hard to find little spot in a quaint downtown. The gardens are private and pleasant with nice staff. Prices are reasonable and as with all the Stone locations I have been to so far, a nice stop.
Pleasant afternoon session on 26th May 2015. Hidden away but found with ease (research helps of course). Small barn/large shed: you decide. Bar to your right on entering: flights available. Almost bought the dog biscuits thinking they were ’cheese straws’ such was the light difference on entering the place. Friendly two behind the bar, nice customers out in the rustic, designer rust garden area. Patio heaters were there but not needed during our little time there. Only Stone stuff I think: that is what we had anyway. Bottles, shirts and refills. beer quality excellent. One gripe: why no plain packets of crisps/chips? When I am tasting flavoursome, wonderful beers the last thing I want is Jalapeño heated nuts or hot Beef Jerky: which was the food options, crazy.
Reall awesome outdoor place, tons of stone beers available with sme I have not seen. Great bartender, Michelle I think her name was. A little pricey but reall great downtown environment. Oceanside coming around.

No sign, just a rod iron gate. Walk up a garden path to the tasting room and store, and then you get to relax in the beer garden with your beer. Core and seasonal brands plus 5-7 specialties. Everything available as tasters in excellent glassware. Staff was engaging. Beer quality was high, tap system was well maintained. Ambiance here is top notch. Will be back- a little Oceanside secret.
