Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens Liberty Station Preview

Update: Rumor has it that Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens Liberty Station will have a soft opening on Wednesday, 15 May 2013!

Two years ago, Stone Brewing Co. invited me to tour (read about it and see pictures here) an empty building in Point Loma. They planned to transform the empty space into Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens Liberty Station.

The new restaurant would bring the amazing combination of great beer, delicious food and the amazing garden found at the restaurant in Escondido while adding a few new twists including two bocce ball courts, new menu items, a small experimental brewery and a convenient location for us city dwellers.

Two years and many historic building headaches later, Stone Brewing World Bistro and Gardens Liberty Station is almost ready to open early summer 2013. While you wait, take a look at these preview night photos and get excited!
