Stone Brewery is located just outside of the downtown area. It is a huge production facility with a large restaurant, and even more inviting, was their large outside garden area. Stone uses this garden for a number of events, including movie nights, book clubs, and corporate events. The brewery is normally very busy because of the great beer that they produce, but the sour beer fest brought out so many more. It was crowded and very hot out, but definitely a great place to enjoy the California sun and some great drinks.

After the tour, which took about an hour, we headed into the restaurant area to grab a snack. After relaxing in the air conditioning for a while longer, we headed back out to try the rest of the beers at the fest. We met some more fun people and spent the rest of the afternoon chatting and sipping from our samplers.

It was late afternoon at this point, and after another day of drinking...we needed to just sleep. So it was an early night, but we were ready for some much needed rest. Nothing overly exciting, but Stone was amazing and the sour beer fest was an event to remember!
