After 5 years, we had to move our little brewery from our original location on Orcutt Road.




The good news is we finally moved into our amazing new spot (just around the corner from our beloved Orcutt home) that will allow us to have of course beer as well as food, wine, cider, an outdoor patio, and more than enough indoor space to host our live music and community events.





Bang the Drum Brewery has Moved Locations!

We are now open all moved in!

Bang the Drum now serves food, wine and coffee! We have everything from a simple Blonde Ale to a variety of innovative takes on classics such as our Queen Mate IPA. We offer a cast of reliable flagships along side an ever changing lineup of fresh brews, we work to provide beer and experiences that will keep you and your tastebuds satisfied.

MOre than one way to celebrate the day


We offer a plethora of entertainment, including live music, salsa dancing, open mic and our notorious brain stimulating trivia nights just to name a few. Come relax in the sunshine on our patio and bring your friends, or make some new ones (perhaps giant Jenga to break the ice?) Everyone is welcome, we are pet and family friendly! So come on in – our awesome staff is ready to pour you a cold one.

Friday April 29- The Sam Chase & The Untraditional at Bang the Drum Brewery
The day you stop growing is the day you start dying. This notion can produce a hairpin change of course for an artist; after all, the audience can sniff out the tired and the stale in an instant. For The Sam Chase & The Untraditional- and the reason we keep having them back- change and growth are the sustenance that keeps them dazzling crowds with every performance. They are constantly writing, tinkering, investigating how to improve what’s been established and push boundaries with that which is freshly hatched. The band puts in this work as a matter of being. They’re not chasing industry models or leveraging success, they approach their craft with a respect for the time they’ve dedicated and the contributions of their co-conspirators. If they appear to be having a ball in the process, it’s because the process itself is the part of the elixir. For a group of people who could do anything with anyone, they’ve chosen each other to share their living, exploring, rejoicing and grieving, and they’ve chosen to include us as well in their jubilant circus. As long as there remain dips and dives and hidden gems along their path, they will continue to walk it, and all of us who encompass For the Folks will continue to walk alongside them. This journey is a treat, the inherent change necessary, and the fact that we get to transform together is why people started singing songs in the first place. Music is calling, and like Muir to the mountains, we all must go.

Hey everyone! Some of you may or may not know that our building is getting some major construction done. In the end, our little narnia will become even more beautiful but this also means we will have to take a little hiatus soon.

What we know:

•We will be closed for 5-6 weeks.
•They will be putting in a new ceiling that is up to code for the residential units that will be going above us.
•The construction will start as soon as they get all the trades, inspections, etc. lined up for efficiency of time.

What we don’t know:

•The exact start date.
•What we will have access to during that time.

We will keep you updated as soon as we know exact dates and details. For now, we have #trivia and #comedy this Wednesday and Thursday and will open the rest of this week! Sending all our love. 🍻
