    San Diego's craft brewing industry just got a tempting "market signal" from City Hall. It says, in effect: Expand your operations, hire more people and you'll pay no permit fees. NBC 7's Gene Cubbison reports on June 23, 2014.

    As the craft brew flows, Stone brews will also be available on cask, as well as free home-brewed soda’s and samples of Mike’s Beer Cheese.

    The Stone beer list at the fest includes fan favorites such as Arrogant Bastard Ale, Stone IPA and Stone Saison, among many others. The guest brewer lineup includes Ballast Point Sculpin IPA with Grapefruit, Coronado Islander IPA and Green Flash West Coast IPA, just to name a few.

    Craft beer has become big business in San Diego. In fact, a recent study shows the industry has a $300 million impact on the local economy. The Voice of San Diego's Andrew Keatts and NBC 7’s Catherine Garcia explain just how that compares to other major business players locally.

    The annual beer fest will also double as a fundraiser. All proceeds will benefit local charities including the Surfrider Foundation, The Boys and Girls Club of San Marcos, The Palomar Family YMCA and Fight ALD. To buy tickets, visit this website.

    Escondido-based Stone Brewing Co. has come a long way in its 18 years as one of San Diego’s most recognizable and successful craft breweries and the company shows no signs of slowing down.

    Last month, Stone announced plans to hop international borders and expand into Europe. The company plans to open a brewery in a suburb of Berlin, Germany, by late 2015 or early 2016.

    Earlier this year Stone said it planned to expand its beer empire to the East Coast, though the exact location for that facility has not yet been announced.
