2012 stone winter storm

after our race on sunday, we took advantage of our surroundings and headed to nearby stone in escondido to celebrate at their 6th annual winter storm. it was my first trip there and was it ever a doozy. so glad i made lunch reservations ahead of time because it was packed!

multiple bars open
main dining area

i wasn't able to take full advantage of the tap list - i ended up driving us down - but i still did damage by way of the 4oz taster. a brief rundown on what i imbibed:

2005 stonewall ale (previously unavail)
2008 12th anniversary bitter chocolate oatmeal stout (aged in bourbon barrels)
2006 double bastard (aged in brandy barrels)
2012 the alchemist/stone/ninkasi more brown than black IPA collabo
2012 crime (2011 lukcy basartd as the base, brewed w/multiple peppers)

oh and by the way i had a bomb prime rib sandwich on ciabatta to boot. definitely will be making a return trip for future winter storms!
