Best beer in SLO

Happy hour all day on Sundays! Easy for travelers passing through. They have 13 beers on tap, you are going to like at least 1 of them.

Absolutely great - really friendly bar man and the beer was delicious. It doesn't look like much from the outside but the beer selection is brilliant and really different. Also bike themed which we loved.

Local micro brewery that makes a wide variety of artisan beers. We've been here now 3 times. Each visit was great. I wished they made a few more Lagers and Pilsners. Lots of IPAs, if that's your thing. It's a small location and usually pretty crowded. Parking can be an issue with only a few parking paces in front. Overall,... More

What can I say about my visits to this place other than come thirsty! The staff were all friendly and very knowledgable about their products. The place was very clean and busy! It has a very nice local feel to it. The beers were all excellent and I can't wait until they open up their new, bigger place which will... More

Selection was more limited than I expected and my experience at other breweries. Samples I tasted were good. Prices were reasonable.

Started our day in the SLO area at a winery, asked for a local brewery rec and ended up here. It was fantastic. The Lucky Day IPA and coffee porter were standouts. Friendly bartender, too.

Thanks Dean! Hopefully by your next visit we'll be a little bigger. We are adding a second location with a larger, 60 BBL brewery, restaurant, and taproom. Both locations will feature our award-winning beers. Cheers, George Peterson More

I love this place! The beer is great, and if you go during happy hour it is a pretty good deal. I am an IPA drinker and they usually have some pretty good options. The bar is right there next to all the production while the workers are all walking around, which provides for a cool experience. Only downside is... More

Came here with a local friend who had ironically never been here and we were both blown away by the quality of the beer. Also turns out that Sunday is all day happy hour so three beers, including s gigantic Belgian Wit, was only $9! Nice IPA and a fascinating Chai Ale made for a memorable experience. NOTE: the seating... More
