Stone Brewing Busting Out All Over
The growth spurt that has given Stone Brewing Co. national attention is about to make the company too big for its San Marcos business park. So, this producer of assertive beers, which carry names like Arrogant Bastard Ale and Ruination, is moving. Stone employees rode a bus to the site of their new brewery June 21, and enjoyed some of the stuff they make all day. Last week, the company announced plans for a new $10 million facility in the Escondido Research and Technology Center.

Stone Brewing Boosting Production
Stone Brewing Co. is adding two custom-made 150-barrel fermentation vessels to its production line, but the improvements do not eliminate the company's plans to build and move to a new plant in the near future, Chief Executive Officer Greg Koch said this week. The brewery, which has become one of the fastest-growing companies in the country, according to Forbes Magazine, plans to move its operation to a 50,000-square-foot brewery in 2005 that could eventually be expanded to about 100,000 square feet, Koch said.
