Once again the Stone Anniversary Celebration & Invitational Beer Festival has come and gone... with a little pomp, a little circumstance, and A LOT of great beer. Everyone had an awesome time this year and plans are already in the works to make the Stone 10th Anniversary Celebration even better!

As everyone knows, each year the event raises some very needed funds for some very Worthy charities, and this year was no exception. We are proud to announce that over $62,000 was raised for the Boys & Girls Club of San Marcos, Palomar Family YMCA, Surfrider Foundation, and Fight ALD!

What about the hair dyeing fundraiser?
In the past we've done Stone Brewing's Going Green Week, Stone Brewing's "Put Red On Your Head" Week, and Stone Brewing's "Make Your 'Do Blue" Week to raise money for some worthy charities. The next charity hair-dying fundraiser will be in conjunction with the Stone 10th Anniversary Celebration in Summer, 2006 (we do the fundraiser every two years)! What about this year? You can give your head a break (not literally, please!).
