Fark Party
Host: GWSuperfan
Description: North San Diego County party at Stone Brewery 5/15. 6:00PM -Note Date Change
Date/Time: May 15, 2013 - 06:00 PM (local time)
Party Info: TFette Beatlefreak will be in town, so we're having a little shindig. Good food, good beer, and good company on tap, so come on out!

I hate to change the date, but Beatlefreak has to return to the frozen north a couple of days earlier than anticipated. So, now we're trying for Wed. I realize this may make it harder for some people to make it :(

What's wrong with having this at the Alibi in Hillcrest?
 
2013-04-27 04:50:11 PM
OK but do this first.

Very casual. T-Shirt, shorts and flip-flops are fine.

Indeed, but that was during the week (which people biatched about). Plus, we have a different out-of-town guest this time.

Some farker bug Stone to send a bit of the hwheat n rye to MN please!

Stone's a cool place! Try the ale sampler. You'll find there are soooo many wonderful ways to get wrecked! The ambiance is casual, the food is so-so (but then they are primarily a brewery. The restaurant just helps you soak up the suds). My favorite is Arrogant Bastard Ale. Levitation is nice too.

My personal favorite is the Smoked Porter. :)

Gawd, anywhere but Stone Brewery? Home of ridiculously over-priced, mediocre (and that's being kind) food...
And let's be honest, their beers just aren't all that great.

The venue was partly chosen at the request of  ChrisGunner. Since he's willing to come up from San Diego, that gave it extra weight. Plus, I like their beer.

Something covering your ass as well. It's not THAT casual.

Arrogant Bastard on tap is awesome. Farking awesome.

Agreed.  Bootlegger's Brewery in OC is way better.

Get back to me when you've had a Knuckle sandwich DIPA.  It makes Pliny taste like Bud.
 
2013-04-27 07:46:46 PM
Mebbe a few EKUs (not a Stone product) will cool yer jets, missmez. But I do realize tastes are as different as micro breweries across the land.. Let us agree to disagree--until I have tasted Knuckle Sandwich (what a great name!).

Isn't it though?  Thats because its 10% alcohol.

Oh, man... I have plans for that night.

I just want to meet a bunch of you and get shiatty levels of drunk and do stupid things. Lets make this happen.
 
2013-04-27 10:38:33 PM
North County is one of the most interesting places in the USA in my correct opinion. My sister lives there so it winds up being a nice place to visit. Can't make it in May, I'm afraid.

I met a guy in Oceanside on a pier who was the Pelican Man. He had these plastic bags full of fish. The pelicans knew him merely by appearance. He fed the fish to them by hand. They were his feral babies. It was so amazing to watch.

/fwiw: a pelican is not very good at flying and it doesn't mind much if it knocks you over if you are between it and fish
//i want to be the pelican man someday

Just got to where I'll be for the night and cracked open my introductory Stone ale. So far, better every sip. It makes me sad I'm hundreds of miles away from the brewery.
Party on, but make sure you make it to Sunday. If any of you Farkers weren't around tomorrow, I'd miss you.

Y'all just make sure to get designated drivers. The place is a good hike from any bus lines that'd be running Saturday nights, and there are stupid things you certainly wouldn't want people doing.

I hear you, Id probably get a motel room, and hotel room if I felt fancy.

May 18th? Really?

Jebus, GWSuperfan... I'll be watching the new Star Trek movie for the fifth, sixth, and seventh times on 5/18.

Finally a FARK party in my backyard!

Weekend's great too because I don't have to fight I-15 during rush hour. :D

Stone brewery is fun times, and Escondido is one of my favorite South-of-L.A. cities.

So it gets moved to the 15th, which is during the week. ;)

Yeah, I know... I'm still contemplating going out to Stone on Saturday if people still want to get together, but the guest of honor's schedule dictated a date change.
 
2013-05-01 03:03:30 PM
I always have the best intentions to show up for one of these local things and never make it, so this time I'm going to say there's no way in hell I'll be there and let's see what happens.
 
2013-05-01 04:03:55 PM
I'm so jealous. My bar has a great relationship with Stone Brewery. They flew our bar manager and beer rep out to San Diego because we sell the most Stone products in the area. The bar manager hit it off with the brewer and now we regularly carry Stone Enjoy By on tap, in addition to their other awesome beers.

I'm hoping we'll be able to get Drew's W00tstout. If we do, I'm going to pour it into a Duke glass and burn this motherfarker down. Have fun guys!

Date change to midweek? Looks like I'm out...dammit!

Sad this isn't on a weekend night.  The wife and I are debating if we should move to the SD area or not and were planning on hitting up some meetup groups on the weekends to scope out the people.  We're about done with central AZ.
 
2013-05-01 05:32:00 PM
appreciation for Stone Brewery is a must, they make a good product & are getting larger every year.

a little info on future plans new (across the street) from the brewery.
http://www.nbcsandiego.com/entertainment/the-scene/Stone-Brewing-Co- Ho tel-craft-beer-185696392.html

there isn't much around the brewery within walking distance (as mentioned) other than a new hospital so i thought the hotel was an excellent idea.

Oh snap, I live like RIGHT there.  I shall be considered to show up, if I don't have to stay late...Wednesdays are never fun for me.  Updates and such.

As I noted upthread, I'll go out there on Saturday (5/18) night, too (at the original time) if people that can't make the Wed. thing still want to meet up.

Come or leave as necessary. If you can do it remotely, they have WiFi.
 
2013-05-01 06:09:18 PM
I wasn't sure I was going to go anyway, but now that it's Wednesday I can't go.

I went there a couple months ago or so, a great tap list which means it gets busy & it's small so you have to be comfortable butt's to nuts.

Other than Stone, or other breweries around there, why?
 
2013-05-01 06:36:10 PM
I will attempt to make it.  It's only 20 minutes or so away and I'm curious.

Most beer bars in San Diego change out their beer fairly often like once a week. They might have a few they keep on. Pliny is not one of them.  Fathom is an awesome place. Real small place right on a peer. Great views.

But it's better than LA and LA is a shiat hole.
