It's more than a store but less than a bar. Conveniently located adjacent to the Del Mar station on the Gold Line, the Stone Brewery Company Store offers the opportunity to taste Stone and Arrogant Bastard beers in reasonably priced 2-, 4- or 8-ounce pours. Once you figure out which one (or ones) you like, get a growler-full; you can bring it back for tap-fresh refills later. (Sorry, they're not free refills!) The outdoor patio offers a relaxing spot for sipping, and if you tell the folks at the Luggage Room across the courtyard that you're a Stone customer, they'll deliver their pizzas and other items right to your patio table. The store also sells Stone-branded merchandise such as beer glasses and T-shirts. It's not open all that late (until 10 p.m. Friday-Saturday; otherwise until 9), but it's a great spot to while away an afternoon or evening. 220 S. Raymond Ave., Suite 103, Pasadena, 91105.
