I have had many a beer with the friendly crowd and staff at the Ale House. Locals and tourists mix easily. The atmosphere is light and easy. Great place to watch the game with friends and to make new ones.

If your looking for a brewery, there are a few good ones close. But the Ale House is just That, an Ale House. They make no claim to be a brewery, event though they do have there own label, they only produce a small amount of a seasonal beer made with berries from the local Lynn's farm. If you like... More

This is THE place. Recommended by a friendly local, this place is so friendly, cozy & has a great bunch of beer on tap as well as great local wines. Everyone is congenial and helpful. We returned the next night. They do not serve food but will let you bring in a treat if you have a hankering.

My BF and I stayed in Cambria for a night and stopped by the Ale House before dinner. It was within walking distance to our hotel so that was nice. The lady behind the counter helped us pick out a few beers for our sampler. The sampler glasses are much larger than normal sample glasses, so $8 for a sampler... More

What I mean by misleading brewers is that they claim to brew their own beer but they had another local brewery in SLO brew it for them. This information came up after I asked to see the brewery, tanks etc etc. then the truth came out. Shame on them for this. To me this is taking advantage of the craft... More

Nice selection of beers. They allowed us to bring pizza and salad in from another restaurant, as they do not offer food.

A wide selection of beers on offer and clearly Chad is very passionate about ale. Shame we arrived late and could not enjoy a cool beer while... More

A huge variety of beer on tap and in the bottle. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the owner was really friendly and very helpful in explaining a variety of beers. Although the town also has a brewery type pub on the other side of town this has a lot more choices.

i was initially excited to visit this place when i noticed it driving by. There is a good selection of beers, but being in the direct sunlight probably isn't too good for them. The cooler had some beers as well but not what I wanted. Sampler pricing was a bit over top. $8 for 4 samples... and most of the... More
