So I am going on vacation w/ my wife's family and I am permitted to take a day trip to Stone! So that got me wondering, should I stop anywhere else on the way (taking 10W, 215S, 15S) or anywhere close to Stone? I realize the area is a beer mecca so I could use some advice coming from Iowa...

Check out San Diego brewers Guild, Just "Google" it. Green Flash and Lost Abbey/Port Brewing are both within a 10 minute drive from Stone and are well worth the trip. Some of the smaller brewers are only open Fri and Sat.

Enjoy

I've been to Stone Brewery and definitely you wanna head to Lost Abbey/Port Brewing. They took over Stone's old location in San Marcos ... Its probably about 2 1/2 miles away from Stone, but its worth the short trip.

Must hit Green Flash in Vista while you're here. The West Coast IPA is the stuff of legends.

Oops! Yeah, +1 on SoCal's recommendation, I forgot about Hangar 24. They have some great beers.

Any thoughts on places in Palm Springs area? Good bars, etc? I also will be out there next week for work...

I sometimes go play poker at Morongo, but I can't think of any good beer bars in that area.

OK, I'm in Palm Springs one more day and need to find some Russian River or Lost Abbey brew before I head out. What stores carry it? I'm on a work trip so I can't go exploring too much...
