Fark Party
Host: GWSuperfan
Description: I know it's right before NOLA, but Drew will be at Stone Brewing in Escondido on 4/2. So, FARK PARTY
Date/Time: April 2, 2013 - 05:30 PM (local time)
Party Info: What do Drew Curtis of FARK.com,Wil Wheaton, and Stone Brewing CEO Greg Koch all have in common? They're brewing a very special collaboration beer together at Stone! The beer itself is still a secret, but you can meet the co-conspirators at a casual Brewday Eve meetup. Join the guys for special beers at our outside bar and perhaps they'll spill the beans after a pint or two!

Location: Stone Brewery
1999 Citracado Parkway
Escondido, CA 92029

That place is super fancy. I can't imagine making enough money off craft beer to have a place that nice.

Oh sure. But when I go, no one else is interested.

Sure. Whatever.

I'll just go and start my own website.

And none of you are invited!

I'll probably just stick around here, though.

Tziva: A Tuesday :'(


Stone is just down the street from me (sortof) but...a Tuesday?  Place is always so damn packed, and hard to find parking even on my Harley ferchristsakes.  And, it's a Tuesday.  But, maybe I'll go.  I'll be in LA that week though, questionable whether I'll be commuting back on the weekdays or just staying up all week...

Yeah! It's like that or craft beer monaco. They had to start out with some serious money.

I'm about an hour and a half away, is the main deal.  I could totally drive myself, but by the time I got off work and drove down, and then I couldn't stay very long because work the next day, also I am a grouchy old lady.

I will mail you a dinosaur doodle.  You can prop it up in a chair for me, and pour booze on it.

Step 2) look for "New Orleans" or "World Fark Party"
Step 3) click link

Raccoon Dog: That place is super fancy. I can't imagine making enough money off craft beer to have a place that nice.


Then you haven't seen how well they have penetrated the market. They have a great product, a wide variety of styles, and are pretty widely sold. On top of that, they are priced rather well. Also, they've been putting out their beer nationally for around 15 years now. I was buying it in AZ about '96 or '97.
 
2013-03-21 03:27:38 PM
Perhaps you all cold ask them to start making beer worth their price-point. I'm not saying they make bad beer, just mediocre.

So, what is the policy for creepy lurkers at these things? I've visited Fark on a regular basis for years, but I've probably only posted a dozen times. But, I do live a half hour away and might be able to convince the wife to let me come.

ESCONDIDO Fark party.  I've yet to see a true San Diego Fark Party. And Drew you should really try anything Alpine Ale, the best beer you'll ever have. I wish I could make it, but Tuesday nights are hard

And translation for you people who don't live here, people only call it So Cal when they live in a crappy town outside a major city. The whole of Orange County is very So Cal.

Excellent.

Works nice, I usually take the 15 home from SD to Oceanside. In fact, stopping by Stone this evening for a growler fill and an "Enjoy By 420" tshirt.

On another note, with so many farkers in the area, maybe we could do a more frequent meetup at some of the maaaaaany local breweries?

/will probably be brewing at Indian Joe in Vista Sunday

Also, I didn't think of it in advance or I woulda stuck a card in the envelope but someone should bring a get well card for Mike and have everyone sign it.  Or at least drink some bonus beers in his honour, if the card idea is too lame.  Something.

W.C.fields forever: Kibbler: I was in Escondido only a week ago.  Now I'm back in frozen Midwest hell.

I lived there for four years..Then moved to San Marcos..Finally back on the coast.Leucadia
is a beautiful thing in spring.
/I hate Escondildo.
//If I am not working,Or near there I would love to meet you funny f*cks.


San Marcos was always too mixed to me. One minute you're in a nice neighborhood, the next in a run down one. That new San Elijo area is very nice though.

If I moved to Encinitas I'd probably go for Cardiff. Looks like an awesome little beach town.

Hahahahaha, look for the derby this time!

"Escondido" means "hidden". Why do they call it "hidden"? Can people not find it? How can you live there if you can't find it? Who are these people?
 
2013-03-26 06:41:00 PM
Ruination FTW!

Was just there a couple weeks ago. Love that place.
 
2013-03-26 06:44:17 PM
You guys still suck!! There's no way in Hell I could ever make this, even if I had vacation time, but I'm totally jealous.

5:30pm on a Tuesday?  In Esconfarkingdido?  Have you heard of Golden Road Brewing?  Great beer and they're not out in the sticks.
 
2013-03-26 07:04:33 PM
Great place, GREAT beer.

/have made the trek to Stone twice from TX and well worth it.
 
2013-03-26 07:05:03 PM
I can't make it but would definitely recommend the Stone IPA.  I got "stoned" on it at a conference in San Diego last year and it was a wonderful brew.

I'm not going to quote and respond individually to all the folks that are complaining about the time and location of this shindig.

The reason it's in Escondido is that that's where Stone is. The reason it's at Stone is that Stone asked Drew and Wil to collaborate on a beer. The reason it's at 5:30 on a Tuesday is that that's when Stone scheduled the event. We're just piggybacking on their little soiree.

To all the people complaining that Escondido isn't San Diego- it's in San Diego county, which is close enough for our purposes. I'd rather not hear any biatching about how far it is, since I have gotten on planes and driven 2+ hours more than once to attend Fark Parties. If you can't make it, I'm sorry, but that's no reason to go off on folks who had nothing to do with picking the time and location (namely: myself and the rest of the Fark community)

Also, all of you that are biatching about the time/location: STFU already. If you don't like it, don't go-but don't be a whiny biatch about it.

As for distance, I recently flew 1600+ miles for a Fark party, so I'm getting a kick, ect.

How long is the party going to last?  I probably couldn't make it before 7:30 or so, but I expect Wil and Drew's agents will already have whisked them off to their next gig by then, which means the party will be pretty much dead.

Stone Brewing is where Drew & Wil are colloborating on brewing craft beer, so another brewery really isn't an option.

Right, what I meant was that they could have collaborated as a different brewery.  It's much closer to Wil, too, as he's in Pasadena (or at least was a couple of years ago)

Lucky you.  Poway was the high school all the "misfits" (to be polite) in the area ended up at, but San Dieguito was even worse, they had National Guard stationed there.

wallywam1: I've never been to the brewery. Where is the actual event? Will there be signage or will we just have to wander around until we either find the venue or someone calls the cops?


Stone doesn't go in for signage. You can see the brewery tanks and hoppers for the ingredients behind the building from the road. If you see parking spaces labelled as being for "Growler Fills Only" you're in the right spot.

The public areas aren't ALL that big, so it shouldn't be too difficult to find. Also, since this is just us piggybacking on the brewery's shinding, I would assume that the people working there can point you in the right direction.

Yes. Oh my God I was so embarrassed once I figured out it wasn't the public Fark party. I explained to Drew after and he just laughed. Hopefully no one thought I was intentionally being a jackass by just plopping myself down at their dinner table.

They seem to be forgiving of party fouls. When I was standing in the autograph line, I tossed a few bucks into the donation box for vincent_blackshadow's medical fund and accidentally bumped the box which almost knocked over Wil Wheaton's beer glass. Luckily he caught it, and it was just an empty one that fell down and broke. Sorry Greg! :)
