This place is right off the main drag in SLO and I have visited here many times in the past, they have great bands play here all the time including a great local band named Still Time fronted by a former bartender of this place, the music is downstairs, while beer, dining areas, and pool tables are upstairs, unfortunately this past time we were here it was incredibly hot in there as it was during a freak heat wave and they have no AC, I had a strawberry blonde and IPA while I was here, cost me a whole four dollars because pints were two bucks during happy hour, cool atmosphere in here and I love how they mold music and beer together so well, it is nearly perfect, this place does get very crowded at night and has a younger crowd than other places in town, I will go back here and hopefully catch another show here in the near future, definitely worth checking out, while the beer is not the best you will ever have, you cannot find a much cooler place to hang out on a given night

We go to slo brew a lot.
Great, casual place to have a decent beer and watch sports. Best place in the downtown san luis area that brews their own beer. Central Coast brewing is really good but is located at the other end of town. Tap It brewery has the best IPA in the county but is a few miles from downtown.
Food is okay, fish and chips are decent.
Nitro IPA and the stout are pretty good.

I visited SLO over the Labor Day weekend. The bar/restaurant are located upstairs, with the first floor being a music venue and bar when there are shows in town. I actually visited this place twice over the weekend, once sitting at the bar and once at a table. It's a very modern spot with lots of wood and bricks. The brewery is located on the 2nd floor right next to the bar. The service both times was good with different waitresses. The quality of the beers on both days was good. The quality of the beers was good and the selection was pretty great with around 10-12 of their own beers on tap with a few guest taps from what I remember. Their food is good too, especially their tempura battered fries. Prices are reasonable, especially for the 6 beer taster flight at $10. I was able to make my own 6 beer flight the second day for the same price. Definitely recommended if you are in the area. I would love to come back, especially if there is a show in town I would like to see.

I go to this place because they have a stage and a lot of great Punk rock bands come by. Seeing a punk show while drinking craft beer is pretty damn amazing.

This place has 2 floors. The bottom floor is where the bands play. There is a stage and a bar and a bunch of old show posters on the wall. The bar serves liquor and all the beers they have on tap.

The top floor is the restaraunt. They have tables, a bar, and 2 pool tables.

They have about 6 beers on tap. The standard, IPA, Pale, Wheet, Lager. The beers are decent. I dont think any of them are the best beers I have had in a while, but not bad either.

The food was good. We had a buffalo chicken pizza. The size was nice, and the price wasnt too bad. They have a varied menu.

The service was good both upstairs and downstairs during the show. Fast to take orders and to bring stuff out. The staff is friendly.

Overall: If I am in San Luis Obispo, I will be at this place. Good environment.
