San Diego’s Stone Brewing announced the addition of a Napa, California taproom and pilot brewery today.
The brewery will be renovating the historic Borreo Building, a 19th century stone building located in downtown Napa. The 10,000 square foot building wil house a 10-barrel pilot brewhouse, complete with a restaurant. The brewhouse will produce Stone’s core lineup, plus experimental beers using locally sourced ingredients.
“The historic Borreo building is the perfect space for us to put down our roots in Napa,” said Greg Koch, Stone Brewing CEO & co-founder. “Not only is it literally made of stone, it’s one of downtown’s most iconic links to the 19th century and a landmark that’s been vacant for the past 15 years. We recognize the high quality of wine that comes from the region and the appreciation that Napa Valley locals and visitors have for fresh, well-crafted drink. We are elated to become a contributing part of such an artisanal town.”
Visitors will find the Borreo Building on 3rd Street and Soscol Avenue in Napa. The renovations are expected to be complete sometime in 2017.
