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.

As the spread of the novel coronavirus continues to put immense pressure on the U.S. health care system and the people who keep it running, the American Hotel and Lodging Association is working to connect hotels with health workers who are struggling to find housing.

 

With the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, most people are working from home. Many are social distancing or quarantining with their children, who have transitioned to online classes. Restaurants, bars, coffee shops, offices, stores and so much more have been temporarily shut down in many states, affecting daily life in the most unexpected of ways.

 

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention on Sunday recommended that all gatherings of more than 50 people be cancelled or postponed for the next eight weeks, in order to prevent the spread of the novel coronavirus, COVID-19. The recommendation covers events like parades, concerts, festivals, conferences, sporting events, weddings and more.
