This place is worth a stop if you're heading up the coast, or doing a tour around San Luis Obispo. Twenty taps and mostly quite interesting. Two barrel aged Figueroa Mountain brews plus four or five others from them. A variety of California breweries like Firestone plus a German. A few bottles, also well selected including Stone's Götterdämmerung IPA at a very reasonable price. They also brew their own, and the one Farmhouse Ale on tap was excellent.

Everyone seemed to be having a good time. Barmaid was nice and seemed to know the beers. Lots of TVs to watch. Looks like fish and chips for eats, but kitchen closed when we were there. The only trouble with this place-- or maybe what you go for-- is they will play your vinyl records on the stereo. It's just so unholy loud. And then it's off. You heave a sigh of relief, and then it's on again. Bands play upstairs sometimes.

Nice location on the waterfront in Morro Bay, which is one of the most interesting little harbor towns. We stayed at the Beach Bungalow Inn, which I also recommend.

I went here for lunch on a quick turnaround trip. The bartender was very sweet and helpful, and despite a large group coming in with only her serving kept her cool and got it done! Had the Belle Rouge which was an outstanding blended sour, with pretty good shrimp tacos. Looks like they have live bands which would be fun, and you couldn't ask for a better location being waterfront. Cheers!

The ultimate spot for good vibes and some of the best wild ales in California. Try the framboise if available.

This is a pretty old-school place in Morro Bay. Its been around for a while and the beer selection is pretty good. The music is a bit loud for my taste at night, but other than that, can't complain.

Made it up to this area yesterday, so I had to check this place out. Just to get this out of the way, there were only a couple knocks on the place. The restaurant was a little understaffed, so they take a while to get to you. Once they do, the service is fantastic. The place is also right on a dock and there are a lot of flies in the place. I don't know if the flies are dock-related. That was my explanation. Anyways...moving on. Food was pretty solid, but the highlight was the beer. The Summer Breeze with Mango was one of the best beers I've had all year. Just amazing. And their Framboise is top 5 I've probably ever had. They had a couple other interesting house experiments, a chocolate gose and a chocolate pomegranate sour porter, that weren't mindblowing, but really cool experiments. A good case of bottles as well. I don't know that I'd go specifically for the food or the atmosphere, but the beer is more than worth it. Get over there.

I don't make it up to The Libertine Pub often, but when I do, I'm greeted by great people with great beer. Definitely check them out if you're ever in SLO as they are really doing fantastic things with beer.

Had a great time at Libertine! Got a flight of their beers, and then another flight of some killer guest taps. Grabbed the sampler plate and a few beers out of the fridge, as well as some of their own beer in bottles to go! Highly recommend this place!
Can't even tell you about the view from the back bar area... whoa.
