The same day we went to the San Diego Zoo Safari we took a tour of Stone Brewery, but I felt it deserved a separate post because it was that awesome. From the moment we arrived into California we had locals mention this brewery to be one of the first stops we needed to make and friends who had lived here in the past informed us of the brewery as well.
They even have a fabulous bistro and garden to sit and enjoy a few drinks and grab a bite to eat after your tour. A group of us have made plans to all have dinner there in the coming weeks, and if the food is remotely close to as flavorful as their beers, it's going to be an awesome date!
Before we left, we chose a beer to bring back with us; B picked Stone Enjoy By IPA and I selected Stone Sublimely Self-Righteous Ale. Each one that we tried were all pretty heavy in texture and flavor. These beers are the kind you pair with a dish, like you would a good wine. What we're even more excited about is that Stone Brewery has opened a company store within walking distance of our place! It's a perfect place to show off to our friends and family when they come to visit.
