Stone Brewing Co. is holding a press event today which I and many other beer writers and bloggers will be attending. Stone is expected to make some big announcements but exact details are still mostly under wraps.
The Union-Tribune’s beer writer Peter Rowe has a story outlining some of Stone’s plans, according to Rowe:
- Stone will open a 400-seat restaurant at Point Loma’s Liberty Station, complete with bocce courts, and outdoor movie area and beer garden and a small brewery onsite.
- Stone will expand their current space in Escondido allowing them to produce up to 500,000 barrels a year (Stone’s estimated capacity this year is 150,000 barrels).
- Stone has acquired an 18.7 acre farm (formerly La Milpa Organica) to provide organic produce to their restaurants.
- And of course, as we all know, Stone is opening a retail store with bottle, growler and keg sales in South Park
Let’s hope Stone left out at least few details from the above story and there are some surprises in store for us still.
Myself and many other are sure to be posting details and pictures to Twitter and Facebook as the day goes on. You can follow me on Twitter @SDbeer or Facebook SdBeerBlog or follow the Twitter hash tag #StoneDay for a feed of various people at the event.
