AUGUST 19 & 20 | STONE 20TH ANNIVERSARY CELEBRATION VIP BREWERS RECEPTION & INVITATIONAL BEER FESTIVAL
Stone Brewing is turning the big two-oh and, in doing so, is taking what's already the county's largest annual brew-haha to unprecedented heights. Friday Night's VIP reception will feature an assortment of rare ales and lagers plus the chance to mingle with the brewers who forged them, while Saturday will offer two sessions of liquid enjoyment featuring more than 100 beers from 60-plus breweries, plus live music, a cigar lounge and more. It's two decades of brewing ingenuity celebrated in proper style.
