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! 


About Our Beer

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. Our portfolio consists of many different brews such as bourbon oak aged Imperial Stout, German-style Weissbier, Gluten Free IPA, and a kettle soured Saison just to name a few. All of our batches are made with a large portion of local honey and are brewed at low temperatures to help preserve the nutrients and retain the health benefits associated with the consumption of honey.   Come enjoy one of our brews. We know that you'll love it!

"The Perfect day"...

"Surf check or predawn hike up Prefumo Canyon, then drive the See Canyon side (golden and beautiful in the early morning light) then down into Avila Beach for breakfast at KravaBowl (acai bowl). Shell Beach Ridge Trail or Bishop’s Peak afterwards, then beach time and a brew at Bang the Drum"

Sunshine, we missed you! We will never complain about you again. Okay, maybe we'll complain a little. Maybe we complained yesterday. I mean, it was really hot yesterday. But always know that no matter what we say, we love you. ☀️ King Mate Tanks - $28
