San Diego has become home of the artisanal craft beer movement, and Greg Koch, Stone Brewing Co.’s visionary founder, is its recognized leader. Creating “big character” beers that gain well-deserved national attention, Stone Brewing Company has an expansive list of varieties, all featuring Stone’s trademark robust character. Committed to sustainability, Stone owns its own 19-acre farm, brimming with organic produce used to supply their restaurants daily, along with hop vines, goats, quail, duck, and even peacocks. Beer Advocate named Stone Brewing Co. the top artisan brewery in the country; not surprising considering Stone’s cult-like following. Arrogant Bastard, anyone?
