100 Favorite Things About Standing Stone (Part 1)
Last year, we started our blog to keep in touch with our community. We’ve written posts to highlight specialty beers, brewing, local producers, employees, seasonal happenings, favorite events and lots more.
We’ve made it to our 100th blog post and we thought we’d use the occasion to ask for feedback about what our community likes best about Standing Stone Brewing Co. The more we know about what our friends, employees and customers want, the more we can continue to deliver satisfaction at our restaurant and brewery.
