Escondido, CA | July 26, 2011 -- Fifteen years ago to the day, Steve Wagner and Greg Koch opened the doors of Stone Brewing Co., and sold their very first keg of Stone Pale Ale. A decade and a half later, Stone is now the 14th largest craft brewery in America. Many things have changed, but many more have stayed the same for the duo, like their love for making and promoting craft beer, as well as their commitment to supporting local charities. Perhaps nothing better exemplifies this than the upcoming Stone 15th Anniversary Celebration & Invitational Beer Festival, taking place August 19-20.

Besides assembling over 40 of the nation’s top breweries to pour their wares, the Anniversary Celebration is Stone Brewing Co.’s biggest fundraiser of the year, with all proceeds being donated to local charities. “We’ve helped raise over $1,000,000 for deserving local causes with this annual festival, with over $200,000 from last year’s alone,” says Koch. “We’re looking to exceed that this time around, with a goal to hit the $225,000 mark.”

Benefiting from this year’s donations (besides the attendees happily enjoying great beer) will be the Boys and Girls Club of San Marcos, Surfrider Foundation, Palomar Family YMCA, and Fight ALD. Tickets are on sale now, and they WILL sell out.
