Stone Brewing brings beer hotel to San Diego early 2018
ESCONDIDO (KUSI) — Stone Brewing will partner with Untitled Hospitality to build and operate a new brewery-themed hotel in Escondido, the company announced Thursday.
San Diego-based Untitled Hospitality will build, own and manage the hotel on a 13-acre property next to the Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens under a licensing agreement with the country’s 10th largest craft brewer.The 26 million property will be designed by Paul Basile of Basile Studio.
“After originally envisioning a hotel on the property more than six years ago, we had put the project on permanent hold due to our need to focus on our core obsession of brewing,” said Greg Koch, Stone Brewing’s CEO and co-founder.
When Robert (Cartwright) and Untitled Hospitality approached us with the idea of them taking the ball and running with it, we found a partner who was fully engaged in the idea of executing on the Stone ideals, ethos and creativity,” Koch said.
“Years of thought have gone into the development of Stone Hotel and it will be reflected throughout every corner of the place,” he said. “I can’t wait to give our fans this amazing extension of the Stone experience.”
The beer-centric facility — which is slated to open in early 2018 — will offer displays of beer flowing from a tap, Stone memorabilia and three bars.Stone said guests will receive a complimentary Stone beer immediately upon check-in, and in-room growler delivery service will be available.
