This place is a huge draw for us. We even started looking for property in Escondido for the long alaskan winters. One day...
Being our second or third visit, I figured we'd review it.
We arrived for lunch, was seated outside, immediately. Just beat the lunch crowd. Tables filled up quickly after we were served our first beers.
The beer menu is so vast that it's hard to figure out what to order first. So we go into it with the beer dinner mentality. We start with something refreshing, something that gets the appetite going. I had the Cali-Belgique, I can't remember what Tim ordered first...sorry.
We started with the Really Soft & Stinky Cheese Plate. This was great! Just as the name states. Really stinky...and sticky and pretty damn good.
We ordered a bottle of Unibroue's Quatre Centieme. Went great with the cheeses. We are cheese lovers, especially of stinky cheeses, but there was one on the plate that was just outrageous. We ate most of it, enjoying the funk and strangeness of it, but it's not one that I would search out. Unfortunately they don't give you a list of the cheeses and they change often. The last time we were there we asked the chef for the cheese line up, but this time it was just too busy to bother anyone for that sort of thing.
Tim ordered the mac & beer cheese. I ordered the Spinach Salad. The salad was great, as far as salads go. Tim's mac and beer cheese was good too. He couldn't eat it all, so we had the rest to go. He ordered the Craftsman Oktoberfest to go with his meal. I was still nursing the Unibroue bottle.
So far service, food and beer are exceptional.
We ended the meal with a Mexican spiced mocha each. Too full for any real dessert. This hit the spot. Even on a fairly hot day (well hot for us anyway)
Wandered around the gardens after, took a bunch of pix.
This is a great place that offers so much. I wish I lived next door. Great bottle menu, great draft menu, they serve more than their own beers. The food menus are creative and they have a knack for using local, fresh, organic (when they can) ingredients.
We bought a growler of the Cali-Belgique and a growler of IPA, 4 tasting glasses, two pint glasses, a t-shirt and a hat as we walked out thru the store.
Can't wait til our next trip to San Diego!

Went for lunch to check out the bar and garden, drove right by it - could be better marked for those from out of town. After turning around and parking, had a great lunch, and an excellent beer tasting of various Stone offerings. Had Green Flash with my lunch. Great place, great food and a relaxed atmosphere.
