I went to new slo brew yesterday for lunch. Since it just opened it was very busy. The place is sweet with a huge bar. We were seated near the back at a lower table. It took 15 mins to a drink and 20 to...More

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 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...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...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,...More

Downtown San Luis Obispo's longest running brew pub since prohibition, SLO Brew, recently announced plans to expand and relocate. SLO Brew is debuting in its new location on Higuera Street early 2016 and will feature an upgraded brewery, restaurant, bar and music venue. Careful consideration has been taken by the entire SLO Brew team to ensure the new location will keep its authentic local spirit, paying special attention to handcraft the SLO Brew experience for its loyal clientele. When doors open next year, SLO Brew fans can expect the venue to be enhanced and booked to the brim with local and world famous performers and bands. SLO Brew would not be complete without the authentic brewing tanks and "kettles" that have been cooking up SLO Brew beer since 1988. These iconic tanks and kettles will be transferred to the new location and, as a new signature amenity, The Brew has added several self-serve taps, offering up a variety of fresh SLO Brew beers. State of the art kitchen equipment and an impeccably appointed dining room attest to SLO Brew's commitment to an elevated culinary experience. Diners can order gourmet pizzas and mouth-watering burgers, as well as other hot and delicious pub-favorite foods, expertly paired with SLO brews.
