Stone Brewing’s massive new East Coast brewery and distribution center and brewing facility has come a long way since we visited last August. Last night, we got a preview of Stone Company Store, the brewery’s on-site taproom and retail outlet.
The expansive taproom offers all of Stone’s current beers on tap as well as growler fills. Stone will be doing a soft opening again this weekend, and will officially open to the public Wednesday, March 2nd.
The remainder of the facility is currently still under construction and, as such, Stone isn’t yet producing beer on-site. Stone Director of National Sales Jason Armstrong told us last night staff plan to bring a few brews online at a time as the tanks are tested and tweaked, and he hopes to have the first beer-which one is anyone’s guess-up and running in late April.
