"Owners and co-founders Steve Wagner and Greg Koch share their story of how they got into beer making and ultimately founded Stone Brewing. The story is fascinating and written like they are just sitting on the bar stool next to you."
-Seattle Weekly, Cooking the Books, 1/30/12

"The advice sections of the book are exceptionally strong. The beer-food pairing section is insightful, giving examples of what and what not to do. The cellaring tips explain how to properly age your beer without turning your bottles into a skunky mess. This would make a great gift for a home brewer or beer snob in your life. The writing is easy to read, and it's like a knowledgeable friend is guiding you through the world of beer."
-City Book Review, 1/13/12

"One of this fall's most interesting beer books, The Craft of Stone Brewing Co., tells the story of how Stone's founders, Steve Wagner and Greg Koch, created the aggressively hopped, intensely flavored beers that turned their San Diego company into one of America's iconic craft breweries."
-Food & Wine, 10/13/11

"Greg and Steve do more than just brew the best beer in the world: they are an inspiration to ignore conventional wisdom, take creative risks, and make awesome things. This book is more than an inside look at how they used that philosophy to found Stone Brewing; it's filled with food recipes from their Bistro and beer recipes from their brewery. Whether you're a novice homebrewer, or routinely make 10 gallon batches with hops you grew in your back yard, this book will inspire you to make epic beer, epic food, and unleash your inner arrogant bastard."
-Wil Wheaton Actor, Author, Homebrewer
