Stone Brewing and Untitled Hospitality Announce Stone Hotel To Break Ground In North San Diego County
 

Specialty brewery hotel to debut in early 2018
 

ESCONDIDO, CA (August 11, 2016) – Stone Brewing, the 10th largest craft brewery in the United States, and San Diego-based hospitality collective, Untitled Hospitality, announce their partnership to develop Stone Hotel — the companies’ first-ever brewery hotel. The concept aims to open in the first quarter of 2018 and will be constructed, owned and managed by Untitled Hospitality through an exclusive license agreement. Located on thirteen acres of land adjacent to Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Escondido, the Stone Hotel will offer an all-encompassing experience with amenities to captivate craft beer enthusiasts and novices alike, alongside the usual healthy dose of Stone’s disregard for convention. 
 
Guests to Stone Hotel will delight in a craft beer experience complete from the moment of arrival. An inlay on the hotel’s driveway artistically displays beer flowing from a tap at the top of the driveway down to Citracado Parkway. Alongside rare historical Stone memorabilia, the watchful eye of the gargoyle will be discretely on guard throughout the hotel, and Stone beers will be available upon a moment’s notice. In addition to the normally incredibly wide array of Stone beers that will be on tap, archive special release beers and unique casks will be periodically tapped at the three on-site bars. Hotel amenities will be equally beer centric, epitomized by the availability of a complimentary Stone beer immediately upon check-in and in-room growler delivery service. Stone Hotel will mirror the philosophy of all Stone projects, exhibiting a high level of creativity and wow factor, ultimately creating a memorable, true craft beer experience.
 
The concept and inspiration for Stone Hotel comes from Stone co-founders, Greg Koch and Steve Wagner. Having founded the brewery in 1996 the team has made an incredible impact on the growth and evolution of the craft beer movement worldwide. One of the largest craft breweries in the country, Stone employs more than 1,200 team members and is committed to remaining independent in this era of craft beer sell-outs. Now in 2016, Koch and Wagner have selected Untitled Hospitality for the development of the Stone Hotel brand. Untitled Hospitality was founded by CEO Robert Cartwright who boasts more than 20 years of experience in operations and business development for leading global hotel and leisure companies, including Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Hilton, Marriott, Intercontinental Hotel Group and Key Hospitality Group. Alongside President and Chief Development Officer, Dan Klunk, and Vice President of Operations, Hopi Stradling, Cartwright has built Untitled Hospitality on the foundation of collaborating, sharing, and galvanizing the creative process to fashion uncommon hotels that celebrate each concept’s unique history, location, experience and design. Through a joint venture, Untitled will partner with prominent San Diego developer McMillin LLC to build-out the Stone Hotel property.  

Stone Hotel will be located at 1990 Citracado Parkway in Escondido, California. For more information and to read the full press release CLICK HERE.
