Stone Brewing, a brainchild of the dynamic duo Greg Koch and Steve Wagner, has etched its name deep into the tapestry of American craft brewing. The story unfolds in 1996 when this enterprising team set up shop in San Marcos, California, with a singular, unwavering mission: to create beers that stood out for their extraordinary flavors and to offer an alternative to the run-of-the-mill, industrialized beers that seemed to dominate the market. Back then, Greg and Steve possessed confidence in abundance, but even they couldn't have foreseen the extraordinary journey that Stone Brewing would embark upon. Fast forward to today, and Stone Brewing proudly stands as the ninth-largest craft brewer in the United States, a testament to their dedication and the quality of their brews. They've expanded their reach, operating two production brewing facilities on opposite coasts - one in Escondido, California, and the other in Richmond, Virginia. This expansion has allowed beer enthusiasts across the country to savor their creations. Not stopping there, Stone Brewing's impact has transcended national boundaries, with their exceptional beers enjoyed in all 50 states and spanning more than 40 different countries. They've become more than just a brewery; they've become pioneers in a craft beer revolution that continues to shape the industry in the United States.
