At Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens, we use in-season, locally, regionally, and organically grown produce. We do this not just for the simple principles of freshness and sustainability, but also because fresh, local and organic tastes better. It’s also better for you and the world in which we live. It shouldn’t be surprising to hear that we also use 100% naturally raised meats. The same fresh / artisanal / natural standard goes for all our food. It does cost more, and our prices reflect some of that reality. However, we also feel it is the much, much better way to go. Greg Koch & Steve Wagner, co-founders of Stone Brewing, have been involved in the international Slow Food movement since 2000. Slow Food promotes getting “back to the table” and celebrates artisanal, natural and old-world approaches to food. At Stone, we celebrate our love of all things culinary by drawing freely from cultures and dishes from all over the world. We also celebrate all things local, and have an amazing selection of regional beers, wines, produce, meats, breads & cheeses. Finally, we have sworn off all things mediocre, NO MATTER HOW POPULAR. We do not serve any industrial adjunct beers (aka “fizzy yellow beers”) as they do not represent the best in beers in our opinion. Instead of generic orange-colored cheese varieties, we select flavorful artisanal cheeses. We are 100% high fructose corn syrup free, as we don’t think that ANYTHING that uses cheap sold-by-the-drum sweetener tastes as good as food and drink that’s made with actual real, natural sugar. No, we’re not health nuts, we’re quality nuts! The fact that actual real food is better for you than the “food-like” substances that folks commonly eat is beside the point. Or is it?
