Craft in a Bottle at San Diego's Stone Brewery

Founded by Greg Koch in Steve Wagner in 1996, San Diego’s Stone Brewing Company is now one of the largest craft brewers in the United States and the first American craft brewer to build, own and operate a brewery in Europe. Known for its bold, hop-centric beers like Stone Pale Ale and its best know brand Arrogant Bastard Ale, Stone has been called the “All-time Top Brewery on Planet Earth,” by Beer Advocate Magazine and produces dozens of year round labels as well as special releases and seasonal brews.  You can visit the Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens in Escondido, Liberty Station and Berlin, as well as enjoy Stone at smaller outposts in Oceanside, Little Italy, Petco Park and the San Diego International Airport.
