Great beer selection

Great selection of beer and a nice setting, however, I was there during a hot, dry day, and with no air conditioning it was somewhat stifling.

We had dinner around 7pm- didn't get out until 9pm. Service was very slow, the waitress didn't check on us very often. We were on vacay and I was looking at online menus of places to eat, thought the menu looked pretty good- come to find out their online menu was/is out of date. Kinda disappointing bc I have a...

We had a delicious burger and a couple of beers that were outstanding. The service was a bit slow and it wasn't busy. The food was worth waiting for though!

We were in town visiting Cal Poly and the hotel suggested SLO Brew to watch game 6 of the NBA Finals (Go Warriors !!) It was great to watch the game, food was good, micro brews were good. Would definitely recommend.

I was really disappointed in the beer at slo brew. The IPAs were too harsh (and I like IPAs) and the rest of the beers were generally boring. They have a nice big 6 beer taster but I just wasn't excited by any of the options. It's kid friendly and the food was decent but the name of the place... 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

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 drinks... 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
