A scaled-down, 2,898-square-foot version of Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens farm-to-table restaurants in San Diego County’s Escondido and Point Loma communities is now open for business in San Diego Airport’s (SDIA) newly remodeled Terminal 2 facility. Designed by architectural firm Gensler and food service designer, Orness Design Group, it features a covered bar area as well as exposed, fenced-off table seating facing a towering, oceanic-themed fountain sculpture in a courtyard just beyond the TSA security screening station. The interior is outfitted in reclaimed wood and steel in keeping with Stone’s trademark “industrial-becoming-organic” design style.
The Terminal 2 facility is outfitted with 12 taps pouring forth 10 Stone beers plus two rotating beers from other craft brewing companies. There’s also a seven-strong bottle list comprised of a quartet of Stone beers and three other beers from our craft comrades. As far as those contemporaries go, expect them to be 100% local.
