Beer travel is a regular part of life. My beer blog, greatbeernow.com, is dedicated in large part to beer travel and I check out new breweries every place I go. A recent beercation to San Luis Obispo landed me squarely inside several notable craft breweries and one of the best of the bunch was Central Coast Brewing. This brewery has... More

We expected an average beer experience at this downtown SLO brewery. We couldn't have been more wrong. We wandered in on a rainy weekday during the quiet winter season. We immediately happened to meet the brewer/owner, who engaged, impressed, and shared stories and a couple of super-secret samples not yet available to the public. We felt so welcome. Nice variety...

Visited this brewery several times during a short visit to SLO. Tried a range of their beers, all excellent. Very friendly service, sports on TV but not intrusive. Food van outside is open in the evening but we didn't try it. Highly recommended.

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

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.
