The Stone Brewing Company brews brash, hoppy, bitter and big in-your-face beers.

Now the founders of the Escondido, Calif., brewery and its public relations director have written a book that details Stone’s history and discusses the various beers. It also includes homebrew recipes for a number of beers, as well as recipes for different dishes from the Stone Brewing World Bistro & Gardens.

“The Craft of Stone Brewing Co. Liquid Lore, Epic Recipes, and Unabashed Arrogance,” by Greg Koch, Steve Wagner and Randy Clemens, was released last week.

The book itself is a beautiful hardcover. Published by Ten Speed Press, the 201 page book retails for $25. It’s also full of quality, glossy photos — a perfect coffee-table book.

“Things are almost universally better when people do something the way they think it should be done,” said Stone co-founder and CEO Koch, who founded the brewery in 1996 with Wagner.

“Brewing tasty beer in our particular way; taking advice and supporting our vision; sharing the story of our unique style of success … that’s why Stone has been such a fast-growing company for so long.”

The Craft of Stone Brewing Co.” is split up in four separate parts. The first part includes A Story Called Stone, which tells the history of the brewery and how Koch and Wagner came together to form it.

It also tells the story of how they picked the gargoyle as the iconic logo.
