11. RETURN POLICY

Our bottom line is we want you happy with what you bought from us. If you don’t like what you received, please figure it out before wearing, washing or rolling in cat hair, etc. If we can resell it to a discerning customer, such as yourself, we’ll gladly accept it back within 60 days of purchase. Sorry, but no returning food items. That’s just icky.  Additionally, beer purchased online for delivery in California is not returnable.

To process an exchange or return, please follow the steps below:

  1. Send the items to the following address: 
    Stone Brewing Co.
    ATTN: Merchandise Returns 
    2120 Harmony Grove Rd.

  3. In the event that we did everything right and you just need to swap sizes or something similar, we’ll ask that you cover return shipping costs. That’s fair, no? Please include an $8.00 check OR prepaid envelope with your return. In the event we cannot process your exchange, you will be contacted so we can straighten the whole thing out and leave you happy as a clam.
  4. Shipping charges are refundable if:
  • We screwed up and sent you the wrong darn thing/s.
  • We didn’t pack your gear well enough to take the abuse of shipping direct to your door. Convenience has its price, you know.

Stone has no control over, and no liability for any third party websites or materials. Stone works with a number of partners and affiliates whose Internet sites may be linked with the Site. Because neither Stone nor the Site has control over the content and performance of these partner and affiliate sites, Stone makes no guarantees about the accuracy, currency, content, or quality of the information provided by such sites, and Stone assumes no responsibility for unintended, objectionable, inaccurate, misleading, or unlawful content that may reside on those sites. Similarly, from time to time in connection with your use of the Site, you may have access to content items (including, but not limited to, websites) that are owned by third parties. You acknowledge and agree that Stone makes no guarantees about, and assumes no responsibility for, the accuracy, currency, content, or quality of this third party content, and that, unless expressly provided otherwise, these Terms of Use shall govern your use of any and all third party content.

16. GOVERNING LAW

These Terms of Use shall be construed in accordance with and governed by the laws of the United States and the State of California, without reference to their rules regarding conflicts of law. You hereby irrevocably consent to the exclusive jurisdiction of the state or federal courts in San Diego County, California, USA in all disputes arising out of or related to the use of the Site.

17. SEVERABILITY; WAIVER

If, for whatever reason, a court of competent jurisdiction finds any term or condition in these Terms of Use to be unenforceable, all other terms and conditions will remain unaffected and in full force and effect.

22. ACKNOWLEDGEMENT

BY USING OR ACCESSING THE SITE, YOU ACKNOWLEDGE THAT YOU HAVE READ THESE TERMS OF USE AND AGREE TO BE BOUND BY THEM.

23. DISPUTES

Any dispute or claim relating in any way to your use of any Site, or to any products or services sold or distributed by Stone or through its Site will be resolved by binding arbitration, rather than in court, except that you may assert claims in small claims court if your claims qualify. The Federal Arbitration Act and federal arbitration law apply to this agreement.

There is no judge or jury in arbitration, and court review of an arbitration award is limited. However, an arbitrator can award on an individual basis the same damages and relief as a court (including injunctive and declaratory relief or statutory damages), and must follow the terms of these Conditions of Use as a court would.

To begin an arbitration proceeding, you must send a letter requesting arbitration and describing your claim to our registered agent R. Craig Spitz, 2120 Harmony Grove Rd., Escondido, CA 92029. The arbitration will be conducted by the American Arbitration Association (AAA) under its rules, including the AAA's Supplementary Procedures for Consumer-Related Disputes. The AAA's rules are available at www.adr.org or by calling 1-800-778-7879. Payment of all filing, administration and arbitrator fees will be governed by the AAA's rules. We will reimburse those fees for claims totaling less than $10,000 unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. Likewise, Stone will not seek attorneys' fees and costs in arbitration unless the arbitrator determines the claims are frivolous. You may choose to have the arbitration conducted by telephone, based on written submissions, or in person in the county where you live or at another mutually agreed location.

We each agree that any dispute resolution proceedings will be conducted only on an individual basis and not in a class, consolidated or representative action. If for any reason a claim proceeds in court rather than in arbitration we each waive any right to a jury trial. We also both agree that you or we may bring suit in court to enjoin infringement or other misuse of intellectual property rights.
