Stone Brewing was founded by Greg Koch and Steve Wagner in 1996 in California. Their mission was to create amazing, flavorful beers and provide an alternative choice for those were unsatisfied with the industrialized beers dominating the market at the time.
Gargoyles are historically known as protectors against evil spirits. Since the beginning, Stone’s gargoyle has represented our ceaseless quest to create the most awesome beers imaginable. Think of the gargoyle as the big friend that’s got your back. Ever vigilant, ever watchful, and ever your humble servant.
