Stone City Brew Co. started as a dream in 2014 — to create a new kind of industry, a return to craft, and to return beer to a place of respect and sociability. We’re about keeping it real. Our beer is made by the people you can see everyday working in our brewery. Real people, making real beer, as fresh and as excellent as possible. We are about creativity, and consistency in quality, about engaging our brewers to strive to explore, to expand, and to always deliver to the people.
The taproom is cozy but just large enough, and on sunny summer afternoons, the street-side patio is usually pretty poppin’. Live music isn’t a regular thing in the Stone City taproom, but the live performances that do take place are usually something pretty special.
This is a place with a definite vibe – there’s lots of natural light along with exposed brick, metal, blackboard menus, and the impressive glassed-in, gleaming stainless-steel brewery.

All good things come to those who wait, and when Stone City Ales finally opened their doors in late July, many Kingstonians instantly fell in love with the upstart, start-up craft brewery.
