I'm in love with Stone Brewery. IN LOVE. The atmosphere, the decor, the gardens, the food and the beer. Ohhhh the beer. Being able to walk through the brewery and see where it's all made is awesome and makes me feel like I'm on the "inside". If you've been reading this here blog for a little bit, you know I love my beer. Not the fizzy yellow kind, the bitter hefty IPA kind. Well, Stone is one of my favorite types of beers and I love introducing other people to their beer and their brewery.
My brother and I headed to the brewery for the tour when he was in town. They do free tours and tastings daily that include a complete tour of the brewery process and 4 tastings afterwards. It's fun to walk around and see and learn about how the beer is made.
After the tour and tasting, my parents met us for lunch in the bistro. Not only is their beer to die for, but their food is delicious too. My mom and I shared the bruschetta BLT and it was light and flavorful with the perfect amount of crunch from the bacon. After lunch we walked around the gardens and enjoyed some sunshine. It was such a great afternoon with the fam.
