San Diego to open the 'world's first beer hotel'

Stone Brewing, the San Diego-based brewery, will be introducing what’s said to be the world's first beer-themed hotel in 2018.

 The sprawling 100,000 sq-ft, $26 milllion Stone Hotel, set next to the Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Liberty Station venue, will feature a bar-style lobby where guests will be welcomed with a complimentary Stone beer on arrival.

The hotel will also also offer in-room 'beer growler' service, with draft beer delivered in a jug.

The rooms will reportedly offer floor-to-ceiling windows, a balcony and be designed with “state-of-the-art energy efficiency and water-saving features”.

Other facilities at the hotel will include a 10,000 sq-ft rooftop garden, a pool deck, an acre of outdoor event space and an 8,000 sq-ft ballroom.

The “microbrewery” is said to be the 10th largest brewery in the US, known for its popular beers such as Stone IPA, and the second most visited attraction in San Diego after the San Diego Wild Animal Park.
