It’s still only in the proposal phase, but Stone Brewing has offered to pay for improvements in Escondido’s Kit Carson Park in exchange for the exclusive concession rights in three different venues at the park. Yes “concession” included beer, and this seems to be the only sticking point. Apparently despite there already being a On The Border restaurant near the park’s softball fields that already serves alcohol, some residents are objecting to beer being served near where there are children’s activities. With San Diego’s Sea World & Zoo Safari Park already serving alcohol, and with support from the Escondido City Council, it is likely the proposal made recently by CEO Greg Koch will succeed but stay tuned for further details.
