Went to the brewery in town while I was on a weekend getaway in Pismo. This place is right up the street from the main downtown Pismo area, a 2 minute walk. Newer looking interior nice granite counters and clean upholstery.

The server was very nice and helpful, I got the sampler. The beers were all a big disappointment, I got about 6 house beers they all were incredibly thin and watery. I'm not sure what their brewing setup is or how they make their beer (the brewery is located in the building just next door) but they need to figure something out in order to increase mouthfeel, head, and the malt backbone in general.

Despite the low quality of the beers, I would still come back and check them out again, give their beers another try. It was a nice comfortable place to drink a beer, even if I have to go with one of the guest taps.

Just a few blocks from the Pismo Beach pier this small town brewery delivers a nice small quaint atmosphere by the beach they offer beers on tap beers in bottles and growlers to take home. Visited on 2/22/2013 on a Friday afternoon the brewery had a about 5 people at the bar and there were a few tables for seating. There was only one bartender but you only needed one bartender at the time. The brewery is small enough that if you go more than once your sure to become a regular. I walked in and was immediately greeted with a smile I picked up a growler of their IPA for $27.00 which was a bit pricey but they offered me a card for a buy 1 pint get the 2nd 1/2 off too bad I wasn't a local I would definitely be a regular and the IPA was well worth it this is a must stop if your in the Pismo Beach area

We are hoping this establishment can improve its beer-making skills. We've been in there twice, and both times the beer has been poor-to-fair at best. We've established a beer circuit in Pismo and we hope that someday the beer here will be good enough to put this spot on our list of beer hangouts. The vibe is fine & funky, nice folks - just make better beer.
