Stone Brewing Evacuates Brewery as Wildfires Approach

Stone Brewing Co., a California craft brewery based just outside of San Diego in Escondido, has evacuated their brewery because of approaching wildfires. The brewery tweeted a photo showing a huge plume of smoke in the not-too-distant horizon and wrote, "We are officially evacuating our home base. Thanks to everyone for expressing their care and concern." The brewery had been posting images to its Facebook page from its roof to document the fire's progression and it even made a time-lapse video of the fire's advance. As previously noted, Stone Brewing Co. is the "tenth-largest craft brewery in the country" as has been looking to expand to cities in the Eastern US. Go, watch the video:
