Crafted by Head Brewer Kris Ketcham, Stone Pilsner was born out of a desire to offer something laid-back and light to satisfy the requests of fans at Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens – Liberty Station. What started as a draft offering at the Bistro quickly gained popularity, prompting the team to scale up production to meet the demand beyond the confines of the Bistro walls.

Stone Pilsner embodies the essence of Americana, drawing inspiration from the evolution of pilsners in the United States. Originally brought to the country by German immigrants, American brewers have since put their own creative spin on the classic style. True to this tradition, Stone Pilsner is crafted using North American-grown ingredients and public varietal hops.


Ketcham elaborated on the brewing process, stating, “This beer is clean and crushable, with a light touch of Cashmere and Vista hops for good measure. Both come out of the public breeding program and we thought it fitting for our American Pilsner to be made with all American public hops.”

The result is a beer that is easy-drinking and clean, with notes of orange, pear, and watermelon. Its light-bodied nature is complemented by a mild breadiness and a sweet corn chip finish, making it a perfect companion for sunny SoCal days.

As Stone Brewing celebrates its third decade of brewing, the introduction of Stone Pilsner marks a departure from their bold IPAs and decadent stouts. While they have catered to hop lovers and dessert aficionados in the past, Stone now extends a hearty “cheers” to all with a crowd-pleasing pilsner for the people.

With its wide appeal and refreshing taste, Stone Pilsner is poised to become a favorite among Southern Californians and beyond. Whether you’re lounging on the beach, enjoying a backyard barbecue, or simply unwinding after a long day, Stone Pilsner offers a taste of sunny California in every sip.
