and here's the view of downtown SD:
|POV from point loma|
since we were in SD, it would be such a waste not to take advantage of the proximity to stone, so we made a side trip to the brewery specifically to visit the bistro & world gardens for the first time. i've been to the brewery numerous times for their yearly festival in august, but never had the chance to dine here.
and what a surprise it is! not your typical pub fare, but rather organic, artisanal produce & ingredients to mirror the care and love they use to treat their beer. plus, it's a gorgeous, open dining area with a bright and airy outdoor patio.
beer lineup was like so:
* great divide old ruffian barleywine
* russian river pliny the elder
* stone double dry hopped 15th anniversary black IPA
food lineup was such:
* mushroom pillows
* thai beef salad
* BBQ sandwich
* blueberry blue cheese jalapeno cheesecake
