Brewery
$$
“Stone Brewery got their start right here in Escondido! Their Bistro & Garden is a local must-see even if you don’t drink beer. Their huge restaurant and brewery is the perfect place to have an intimate date around the pond/fire pits, or even a big event around the gardens and koi ponds. You can take a free tour of the brewery and get gifts from the attached store. Their food is locally sourced and phenomenal. Try their draft cold brew coffee and the ahi nachos!”
