Stone Brewing Co. was forced to evacuate its headquarters late last weekend, due to the Cocos wildfire that swept San Diego County, California, and surrounding areas.
The brewery, located in Escondido, was threatened last week, and employees were forced to evacuate on May 15. The brewery, which features a devil as a mascot, tweeted pictures of the fire from its roof just before receiving mandatory evacuation orders.
We are officially evacuating our home base. Thanks to everyone for expressing their care and concern. http://t.co/YDk4kaDirh
