The Stone Brewing Company has been a leader in the domestic craft brewery arena for over 15 years. in fact, the Escondido, CA based brewery will celebrate its 16th anniversary next week. First and forermost Stone makes high quality beers inclduing their world famous Arrogant Bastard Ale. The impressive lineup goes well beyond Arrogant Bastard, as you can see below.
Stone is also a leader in creativity. They use unusual ingredients and combinations of spices. The are one of the forerunners in using oak aging for the beer they produce. This centuries old practice was virtually dead in the US before Stone and a handful of other craft breweries brought it back. Stone also produces a lot of "vintage ales" that can be aged for many years before consumption.
