STONE BREWING WORLD BISTRO & GARDENS:

DOUBLE IPA CLASS!

Most diners give little thought to the food that sits on their table other than how it tastes.  And while everyone seems to agree that fresh is better, we seldom ask ourselves, "Just how fresh is it—really?" Allow us to demonstrate for you just how fresh a meal can be.  Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens invites you to experience a meal that in this day and age has all but been forgotten; a meal in which all items were picked, gathered, bottled, kegged, caught and/or killed THAT VERY DAY! For most folks, such a meal usually requires toiling on the farm or stomping through the woods.  But there’s no need to get your hands grubby this time, as we'll take care of that part for you.  All you need to do is show up and enjoy.  Well, there is SOME activity involved.  You will need to take a stroll over to the brewhouse floor so that you can draw a glass of beer RIGHT FROM THE FERMENTER VAT in all its fresh, unfiltered glory!
 
The evening will feature a price-fix menu consisting of "That Day Fresh" items.  And for those who would rather not dine on something that just hours before had fur, feathers or fins, a vegetarian option (equally fresh) will of course be available. All the beers—and, oh yes, there most certainly will be plenty of fresh beer—to be paired with selected courses will have been either kegged or bottled earlier that day.

Now, how’s THAT for fresh?

FRESH! Runs from 6-9PM. Keep an eye on the Stone Calendar page for more the latest information. For reservations, call the Bistro @ 760-471-4999, Press 1 and then Press 2 to reach the host stand.


STONE CONFERENCE ROOM:
MEET THE BREWERS OF CALIFORNIA!
July’s Brewing School will be a 45 minute presentation on malt handling and milling, and we will review how this important 1st step of the brewing process impacts brewhouse performance and beer flavor. This topic is being prepared and presented by Brewer Kevin Gray. Brewing School is held in our conference room and select amount of seats are open to the public free of charge and go fast, so make reservations ASAP. Call the front desk at the Stone Company Store @ 760-471-4999, x1500

THURSDAY, JULY 19th
5:30-6:00 Mix and Mingle
6:00-7:30 Discussion

It's been said that the Farm Bill should really be called the "Food Bill," since it pertains to all aspects of the food we eat. Dan Imhoff's book "Food Fight" gives us the inside perspective on the Farm Bill, and the fascinating stats and details of our current system for growing and subsidizing food in the United States. Join "Food Fight" author Dan Imhoff for an engaging discussion!

Selection:
"Food Fight" by Daniel Imhoff

Additional Optional Selection:
"Farming and the Fate of Wild Nature -- Essays in Conservation-Based Agriculture" edited by Daniel Imhoff and Jo Ann Baumgartner

"Food Fight" currently on sale in the Stone Store, or at your favorite book retailer.

Guests are welcome to bring their own lawn chairs, and blankets will be provided for those without to keep you from grass-staining your chinos. Heck, we'll even discount draft beer for attendees — your lit' professors never did that for you! An RSVP is appreciated (though not required) at 760.471.4999 x1700

The human palate is capable of detecting four basic tastes, but during a typical beer tasting only two of those (well, three if you count the pretzels) are experienced: bitter, sweet, and salty. At the Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens we feel it’s high time we included the fourth flavor domain—SOUR—in the equation. Join us for hours of sours as we celebrate this great, and often unexplored, tradition of tart and tasty ales. We're currently tracking down as many sour beers that we can put on tap and in bottles to have for the day. The event will kick off when we open at 11am and will continue on all day long at our outdoor bar. A $30 Sour Pass will get you 10 taster tickets (some of the rarer sour beers will require two tickets) along with a commemorative glass. Reservations are not required. If you plan to dine with us, reservations are strongly encouraged!

July Is Fizzy Yellow Beer
T-Shirt Amnesty Month

Too many times we've heard people refer to the beer T-shirt they are wearing in this way: "Heck, I never drink this brand of beer anymore, but they gave me the T-shirt for free. I'd much rather wear an Arrogant Bastard Ale T-shirt since your beers rule."

Well, typically we would just ridicule you for your poor taste in clothing, but from now until July 31st we're offering you a special deal instead! See, this month is "Fizzy Yellow Beer T-shirt Amnesty Month" here at Stone Brewing.

This list isn't even mentioning all the great growler fills, casks we pull out on a weekly basis, Tapas Tuesdays, Lambic Sundays and more that we have going on all the time. Be sure to check the Stone Calendar of Events to stay up to date!
