Everything about this place makes it a beer lover's Heaven. The unique architecture, with high ceilings, abundant stone, and contrasting wood gives this place a real modern but elegant feel. A fountain in the middle of the indoor restaurant area adds to it as well.
On to the beer. Was there for the Winter Storm in which all the taps were filled with Stone's regular beers and a bunch of their old and rare beers. The second time I went was a regular night and they had the usual Stone releases on tap, as well as a ton of other great offerings such as Alesmith, Bear Republic, Russian River, and many others from CA and the west coast. If that weren't enough there is a great bottle selection.
The service has been great every time. Bartenders are right on top of things.
I haven't eaten much of the food but I will say it looks interesting and tasty. I've only had the arrogant bastard onion rings (great) and the fried garlicy mash potato ball things (pretty good) with their smoked porter dipping sauce (very good). The beer is a pretty reasonable price, but the food seems to be a bit pricey.
Went for Sunday brunch and had the Duck Tacos plate. Very good except they put so much of the smoked porter sauce on the duck its hard to get any other flavors. However, the flavor of the smoked porter sauce alone is great anyway, so you can't complain too much. Also ordered the "really soft and stinky cheese plate" which was very good. The food at brunch is a lot less expensive than the same food at dinner so brunch may be an option to save a bit of money when eating.

Although my assumptions were high and tilted toward a bias of great faith, it still went above and beyond what a brewery should be. The staff during the tour was great and more than gracious at the tail end during the tasting. The food was fantastic, the atmosphere great, and the casual and comfortable garden was a great place to stroll around in and get your Stone on.

The atmosphere and vibe at Stone is awesome. These guys put some serious thought and dough into the design of the brewery which includes a store, bar/restaurant, and outdoor bar/dining/relaxing area. The indoor restaurant has table seating, a bar with a lot of seating, and giant booths for large groups. The outdoor area is filled with vegetation, small waterfalls, and lounge chairs along with tables in the dining area and an outdoor bar area. The store offers a ton of shirts, glassware, bottled beer, and certain growler fills depending upon the day. I was greeted when I walked into the door and was treated very well during my visit. The beer selection is outstanding as they offer all the Stone regulars, current seasonals, occasional special releases, and plenty of guest taps. If you want to go all out, the bottle list is amazing, just be ready to pay for it. Though I didn't try any of the food, the menu is very extensive and the food that others were eating looked excellent. Tours are offered a few times a day and are only $3 which includes the tour, a Stone glass, and 4 samples. Tours are about 40 minutes. I thoroughly enjoyed my visit to Stone and would highly recommend it.

This is one of the best breweries to visit. The tour is great and you get lots of free beer at the end and it's free! They also have some great events here throughout the year. The menu is eclectic and fun just like Stone beers. Definitely visit when you 're in the area.

Atmosphere- This is a popular place, but they make it very inviting. Very open and warm, bright, charming, very welcoming
Quality- Excellent. Very nice place, what more can be said for quality?
Service- Excellent. Bartenders are quick, and eager to help and serve you. Very knowledgeable and personable.
Selection- More taps than I can count, and even larger bottle selection. Who could ask for more?
Food- Had the beer cheese soup and duck tacos, both were amazing. Lots of good selection
Value- Not cheap, but worth the money paid. Easy to spend a lot, but again, worth it.

Finally putting a review online since our visit in Jan 2012 Big shoutout to my wife and mother-in-law for entertaining my beer obsession. I somehow got here on an day off from a Walt Disney Land vacation with the family!
All I can say is that the atmosphere is perfect for beer drinking and the selection is top notch. I became a beer nerd because of Stone. Cheers! Being from Canada nobody should every complain about pricing at this brewery, it's basically happy hour all the time compaired to Calgary prices haha.
The food is also top notch. Everything we had was excellent!
This is the best craft brewery every to blow up and expand!

Wow, what a place. A beer garden with walking trails, cascading water, and lush vegetation. I remember joking with the bartender where the deer where and if we could feed them. Never have I seen before such poured into a brew pub, and it made me feel better that at least something good... I mean great came out of that crappy hair metal music.
If I wanted to go somewhere with a lady friend this would be the place I would want to go. If I wanted a brew pub with a lively atmosphere, this would be the place I would want to go. And the beers are amougst the best in the country with an owner that has passion for this sort of thing.
How can you not give a perfect score to this place? Seriously?

Outstanding experience at Stone Brewery, everything about our visit was perfect, their beer is incredible but they also distribute for Russian River which was greatly appreciated. Will love wearing my Areogant Bastard bike jersey on future rides! And the 2 liter bottle of 12.12.12 Vertical IPA went down very nicely with my pals at a party the next day.

Beautiful brewery. Plenty of seating and large bar. They also have an outdoor bar which opens later in the evening. Not hard to find the place, but hard to see it from the street. It's in a business building with little in way of signage. Front store is large with a variety of apparel.
A great garden to stroll thru or relax in, fire pit and seclusion a plenty. Great place to visit and a must for beer enthusiasts. Take the tour!

The most beautiful brewery you will most likely ever visit, this place is almost literally a castle, and the grounds out back are simply gorgeous. We didn't take the tour but opted instead for several rounds outside in the sun (it was December, we're from the Midwest). Food was good, service was great, and of course the beers were excellent. Gift shop was even swanky.
