While planning the menu changes, Stone identified local purveyors and producers of fresh ingredients to create menu items that deliver a better value. Menu items now include $12-14 shareable plates and entrees between $13 and $28.
They added a sizable selection of shareable plates including Sausage Wellington, Yellowfin Ahi Poke “Nachos” and Jidori Chicken Wings. A selection of street tacos includes the Ensenada Fish Taco, Yucatan Pork Taco, the Carne Asada Taco and the Taco De Calabacitas.
For years, Stone took hits from fans, who detested that a brewery would exist without its fabled counterpart – the burger. Now, two burgers grace the menu. Both feature certified organic, 100 percent grass-fed, and dry-aged beef directly from Belcampo's regenerative California farm and certified humane USDA processing facility.
So why now?
A company has arrived that is equally dedicated to the brewery’s values of a more sustainable, ethical future for food – Belcampo meats. Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens is the first to offer Belcampo meats in San Diego.
“The ambiance in our bistros and gardens is unmatched and our menu items are paired with beers that, given their excellence, have helped to define craft beer on an international scale,” said Gregg Frazer, Stone Brewing vice president of hospitality. “By reimagining our menu, we’ve further elevated the overall experience at our Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens so that the food, beer and environment are equally exemplary and everything you’d expect of a brewery so acclaimed for its accomplishments in beer.”
While change abounds, some things remain the same. Stone’s menu maintains its global inspiration with menu items including Chicken Schnitzel, Bangers & Mash, The Angry Chicken (Korean Fried Chicken breast with Gochujang glaze and kewpie aioli) and Stone Brewing Medianoche – Stone’s version of the late-night Cuban sandwich.
Batch craft sodas are locally produced in California, gluten free and made with pure cane sugar. Recommended pairings of Stone’s bold, independent, award-winning craft beers complement every menu item and flights and tasters are available.
Also new, Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens Escondido and Liberty Station announce a partnership with DoorDash. Select menu items can be delivered straight to your home, alongside fresh bottles, cans and crowlers of Stone beer. If sprawling gardens, bocce ball courts and brewery sights and smells aren’t your thing, that’s A-OK. You can have your hops in the comfort of your own home. With a burger none-the-less!
