Stone Brewing, arguably San Diego, Calif.'s most well-known craft brewery, is finally giving the people what they want: a craft beer heaven-esque beer garden and bistro.
Eater reports on the new opening of Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens, open at Liberty Station, Point Loma’s now-historic Naval Training Center. That sort of "mess hall" concept has driven the Stone Brewing garden's design, but it's way, way cooler than your ordinary mess hall. There's 23,500 square feet of indoor and outdoor dining and bars, as well as a bocce ball court, outdoor cinema space and an 11,315-square-foot garden, according to the garden's website — and that's not even including the beer and food. In addition to local dishes and "world inspired cuisine" from Executive Chef Tausha Lopez, the beer garden will have 40 taps of Stone's lineup. Of course, it's not just a Stone brew-only beer garden; among the other breweries featured in the taps (and in about 60 bottles on the menu) are Avery, Russian River, Oskar Blues, Green Flash, The Bruery, and more. So yes, go grab a Stone Ruination IPA and head for the outdoor seating — we think your summer nights are just about set.
