Good beer!

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... read 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

I was in SLO recently and decided to add to my beer glass collection. So, I dropped in to SLO Brew to purchase a SLO Brew logo "pint" glass. While watching football at home this weekend I grabbed a 12oz bottle of beer and poured it into the glass . . . . . and it filled the glass almost... 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

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

Crimes of Passion was playing - Pat Benatar tribute band and another 80 rock band, sorry did not get their name. Not many chairs to accommodate the crowd but happy to stand.
