Stone Brewery, the 10th largest craft brewery in the U.S., is teaming up with United Hospitality to open the first-ever brewery hotel in San Diego. Stone Hotel aims to open in early 2018 and will offer an all-inclusive experience for the craft-beer obsessed.

Guests of the hotel will be able to enjoy all aspects of the brewery experience from start to finish. Greg Koch and Steve Wagner founded the brewery in 1996 and have worked to grow the craft beer industry.

“You can’t rush a good thing,” says Koch. “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. When Robert 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. Years of thought have gone into the development of Stone Hotel and it will be reflected throughout every corner of the place. I can’t wait to give our fans this amazing extension of the Stone experience.”

The 100,000-square-foot, $25 million building will provide their guests with a unique experience. The hotel has 99 guest rooms (all more than 375 square feet in size), an 8,000-square-foot ballroom, a 10,000-square-foot rooftop garden and an acre of event space.
