Stone World Bistro and Gardens: A Great Success Story

Stone World Bistro and Gardens

Stone World Bistro and Gardens, sometimes referred to as the “Adult Disneyland”, is a world unto itself. The main brewery and restaurant located in a northern suburb of San Diego, called Escondido, which means “hidden”, which, ironically Stone Brewery is. Hidden in plain sight. It’s so well-known it doesn’t need a sign.

Surrounded by boulders and lush greenery, life quickly transforms from hectic city to calm, relaxing ambience. Picnic grounds offer both private and public areas to sit and enjoy a freshly brewed beer or glass of wine. Walk the gardens, smell the herbs, enjoy waterfalls, warm yourself by a stone fire pit, share a private conversation in the sunken seating area or on an Adirondack chair.

The dining areas can become indoor or outdoor with the moving of large glass garage-style doors. Filled with rustic woods and dramatic stones. The overall feeling is very earthy with all of the elements: stone, wood, fire, water and greenery, and, of course, beer.

Co-founders and brewmasters Greg Koch and Steve Wagner started Stone Brewing Co. in 1996 and sold their first keg of Stone Pale Ale on July 26, 1996. In 1997 Arrogant Bastard Ale was created, which went on to have cult status around the entire country. With this, their journey into craft beer became a success. Today Stone Brewery produces 287,000 barrels of beer, has two locations and distributes worldwide.
Lately, the brewery has been collaborating with local craft brewers to create some “no boundaries” brews. The goal was to get rid of preconceived notions in beer styles and see what they came up with. The result of these one-time brews in 2014 was: Xocoveza Mocha Stout, Wootstout 2.0, Unapologetic IPA and Collective Distortion IPA.
Make sure to save enough time to take a tour of the facility, try some freshly brewing beer direct from the vats and then relax and enjoy the grounds.

Stone Brewery has a multitude of events throughout the year. Attend Beer U educational classes, farm-to-table FRESH dinners, Master Pairings: Street Foods From Around the World, as well as many beer festivals.

Stone Brewery opened a new restaurant location in central San Diego in Liberty Station. They also have five company stores throughout San Diego and one in Pasadena, where you can get a growler refilled, purchase Stone merchandise or enjoy a current brew.

Stone Farms, a 19-acre farm, is an offshoot of the microbrewery. Located in the San Pasqual Valley, they’re open Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sundays with live music on Wednesday and Friday. Here they grow hops; you can walk the grounds and see how hops or other vegetables are grown. You can also get your growler filled here, just in case!

    asta cu VAGABONDUS ECCLESIASTICUS o fi valabila si pentru pastori, dirijori de cor, invatatori de tot felul. mai bine optam pentru “odata ales, pentru totdeauna ales” calvinist.

    I really want to be able to et my kids to sleep. I never used to have an issue with my oldest whom of which is my son. He is 5 now. But when I had my daughter and she started getting a little more sassy if you will, it went down hill. I can’t get them to go to sleep sometimes until after 1am. Depending on their moods. So it scares me to try and do this…especially when they hate playing on their room too… help!

    They hated the nuclear family. They established residences for unwed mothers that you will find people talking about the “progressiveness” of to this day. That they had to recant and publically deplore positions on illegitimacy and polygamy was owing to the pressure of public opinion.
