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.

I love this place! I reserved a private tour for my business group after an offsite and we had a blast. Ken was an awesome tour guide and many of my colleagues were hooked. I rated it $$$ because the food prices may seem a little expensive if you aren't from a larger city but the food is fabulous, totally worth it.

This place was amaaazing! I went a couple months ago because my manager swore up and down it was amazing, and he was right!
The brewery tour was short, but very informative and we received a commemorative glass to enjoy our tastings with... They have an amazing collection of unique beer on tap... I tried my first "sour" beer here and actually enjoyed it...
The outdoor atmosphere was pretty amazing, a combination of classy outdoor dining and interesting bon-fire pits surrounded by large stones lining walkways and some calming water bending in and around the area. Definitely setting quite the relaxed attitude.
The food was delicious, I had some duck, and maybe it was the alcohol at that point, but the quality was on point! I didn't think it was too expensive for the quality and the quantity mixed with the great service and amazing atmosphere. I highly recommend any enthusiast visit this place if you are in the area.

Stone is something to behold. With an architectural and landscape design reminiscent of a west coast winery, Stone is warm, welcoming, and environment friendly. Whether you're there to celebrate, to chat with friends, enjoy dinner with family, or to simply grab a pint/fill a growler, you won't be disappointed. The food (some say is slightly overpriced) is mostly locally sourced and is prepared to be paired with Stone's beers. The beer is well above average, and special brewer offerings are available on tap, onsite. The service was incredible... from the personal tour to the personalized beer samplings, the whole experience will be tough beat. That said, Stone is in the process of adding a hotel for larger events (weddings, conventions, etc), and in a few years when it's built, I hope to spend time in it to see if the last experience can't be improved upon.

I love this brewery! The tour was free and very educational. It also included a wonderful flight of beers to taste at the end which resulted in me buying a growler of Lucky Bastard. The restaurant on premises looked great as well. The people were awesome and very willing to answer questions and shed light on why they are one of the best.
