Stone Brewing Has Evacuated Its Home Base

The San Diego county wildfires got too close for comfort. We're obviously concerned about the safety of the Vertical Epic Ale (as well as the brewers).

Words you never want to hear: evacuate now.

Stone Brewing Company was forced to evacuate the brewery yesterday because of the encroaching San Diego wildfires. The brewery was posting photos to Facebook, taking time-lapse videos with a GoPro camera (see above), and tweeting about the fire as it got closer.

As Beerpulse notes, Stone Brewing isn’t the only brewery affected. Offbeat Brewing was also tweeting and posting videos about what was happening.

Both breweries have thankfully been safely evacuated. No word on the fate of the beer. We’re just glad everyone’s okay, and hope that they saved all the bottles of Stone Vertical Epic Ale.
