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.

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"

Stopped by on a really rainy day when our plan to hike was cancelled. Many beers to try. I recommend the Tahitian Night Imperial Porter which was absolutely delicious. We also tried other breweries in SLO but this beer actually gave me a buzz where the others didn't. The service ...

This brewery was just what we needed after driving to San Luis Obispo from LAX. They had an impressive assortment of delicious beers to choose from. Our favorite was a blonde stout called "surprise me". Don't miss this warm and friendly brewery while in SLO.
