      Stone's store (complete with growler fills) is set to open soon in South Park on 30th (next to Rose wine bar) as well. It looks like the build out is almost finished and they are accepting applications.

      1. re: DiningDiva

        That might actually be true. Stone Brewery is looking into opportunities to expand to Europe and one of the cities for their European location is Berlin.

          I know, that's why I posted that ;-). Of course, the fact that it plays into the running joke didn't hurt. IIRC they're looking at Germany and Belgium as the 2 countries they'd like to go into. My nephew is really into brewing and has a degree in international entreprenuership. He'd LOVE to go to work for Stone in Europe

      2. Maybe I don't get get Stone but I have always found the food to be kinda strange and inconsistent at that. Yeah the building is beautiful, extensive beer selection and they really pack 'em in, but I just don't see why it is sooo popular. I am sure they will do well down in Liberty Station, that looks like a really cool location.

          Because Stone, along with Karl Strauss, were the first breweries to break out of San Diego's brewing scene. You can buy Stone IPA in grocery stores almost anywhere.

            Hope the food will match how great the beer is..
            I've only been once and I found the food to be meh.
            I think they'll kill it at the Point Loma location...
            Wonder if they'll have a dock for the boats..great way to arrive like the Bali Hai..

              Thanks for the scoop Beachy. Love the outdoor space in Escondido and hope they have a great one planned for Pt Loma. Couldn't agree more about the lackluster food. I'm not much of a beer drinker. I get to be the DD for this place, but they''ll need to improve the munchies to keep me hauling the beer breath brats. Don't need anything exotic, just some tasty pub food and burgers would be an improvement.

              1. re: Beach Chick

                There's a dock across the street but it's always locked. Maybe you can trade beer for access....that is if you can figure out who to trade!

            2. That'll certainly lift up PL, can't wait.

              1. 400 seats - too big and noisy for me, especially if you are not a big beer drinker. I'm happy for those of you that are. It sounds like their foodie heart is in the right place by taking over La Milpa, hope it is a successful venture for all.
