An awesome place to relax, sit in the sun and have a good beer. The layout of the place is very cool, with an indie seating area and a much larger outside...

This place is super chill! Good beer and an awesome atmosphere. I like really bold, hoppy IPAs and they have a different style of beer that really doesn't offer that. But all in all a solid brewery.

Attended a private party here related to a wedding we attended. Very cool, unique place. Eclectic is a word that comes to mind. Not cookie cutter by any means. Talked with the folks working here quite a bit. They take pride in their fine products....More

Brewing Responsibly.

Located in San Luis Obispo, California... one of the "happiest places in America" (Oprah, 2011). 

We are pleased to be the Smallest Brewery on the Central Coast with a humble batch size of 1/2 BBL (barrel). Of course this means we have a lot of work to do every day, but we hope this shows you how much we love what we do.

 

Bang The Drum...

"what began as a fun idea has become a great passion to create something that others can truly enjoy"

At our tasting room we enjoy:

  • weekly events  
  • performances by local musicians
  • charity fundraisers & craft fairs

...We have a collection of drums for our daily patrons to bang on!

Interested in Performing @ BTD?

Drop us a Note...

All of our beers are Hand-Crafted.

We utilize our small batch size by making as many different styles as we can so that we can get a better idea of what our community truly enjoys.   Come enjoy one of our brews. We know that you'll love it!
