Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens

San Diego, California

Liberty Station’s relaxed, retro feel--80 acres of mostly 1920s buildings set amid broad lawns--lured craft-brewing pioneer Stone to choose it for its second Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens. Like the original Escondido location, this is a one-stop shop for food and fun: There’s a brewery, a bocce ball court, a half-acre garden, and an outdoor theater. The big difference is the space itself--a handsome salmon-colored building that typifies Liberty Station’s Spanish colonial revival architecture. The restaurant’s main dining room occupies the former mess hall; its menu concentrates on upscale brewery fare like a duck taco trio with Stone Levitation Ale barbecue sauce. As for the brews, check out the small-batch seasonal beers or the perennial favorite, hoppy Stone IPA, which helped put San Diego on the world’s beer map.
