Good beer but worse than the hipe

SLO Brew is known as one of the two big brewing companies in the heart of San Luis Obispo, but that said, the beer isn't as good as I hoped it would be. As a SLO resident, I frequent SLO Brew for weekend events, concerts, pint night, and the occasional trivia night, but I tend to stick to the... read more

Everything was great! We went with a large group to this upstairs location. I won't list the beers we drank, but suffice to say we covered the beer menu and shared tastes. They were all great! For food, many of us had the Thursday special of a beer and fish and chips. Yum! The server even asked if we would... More

We popped in to try some local beer and ended up staying for dinner. The beers are really good, try the sampler to get a taste of everything. It's also pretty good value and they have lots of specials on throughout the week. It was a nice, fun friendly atmosphere, the staff / service were good and the food turned... More

My fiancé, his dad and I were in the area and decided to stop by and have a beer. We both tried the Blueberry beer. I expected to taste blueberry, but I didn't. It was a very good and will definitely get it again. The staff was very nice.

SLO Brew, which used to be called Downtown Brew, is a great location in the heart of downtown San Luis Obispo. San Luis Obispo is a college town, so it has a fun, upbeat and young social vibe. SLO Brew has a pretty good concert venue, although many of the better artists come through during the week, so just be... More

Staying at the Best Western about a mile from downtown made us feel we really earned our pint and plate of darn fine stuffed jalapenos at Slo Brew. On 3 nights in a row we walked that great path past the Madonna Ranch and into the heart of SLO on Figuero Street. There are some tasty spots along that main... More

Came here for dinner and drinks on a Friday night during a quick stopover driving from LA to San Fran. Happy hour was well utilised and much appreciated! We started with jalapeno hummus with pita chips and raw vegetables. Really refreshing and hummus was great! A then had buffalo wings which I can't rate highly enough, and my friend had... More

We went there to watch the World Series and had a great time with good appetizers and a long list of good microbrews. We spent a fun filled evening with some special friends. Being so busy sometimes was hard to get service right away but under the circumstances they did a good job.

We arrived late in SLO after a long drive and we found this place near our hotel (Garden Street Inn). It was just what the doctor ordered. I had the IPA, which had the hoppiness and bitterness that I liked. I ordered the pork loin, which was presented as it would be in a fine hotel. It was cooked as... More
