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 Brewery  


We are a small craft brewery & bakery located in beautiful San Luis Obispo. Our goal is to create a unique, feel-good experience where customers feel relaxed and part of the family. 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.

Hi everyone! 

We are having a special event early this Saturday, SLO Ride to Defeat ALS, organized by a lovely couple for whom this cause is near and dear to their hearts. 

To see the passion they have to raise money for this cause is very moving. If you’ve lost someone close to you, if this cause is important to you, and/or you are also moved to help, read the text below, participate, donate, and help us share.

8:30am 24 and 16 mile ride
Start and Stop at Bang the Drum Brewery

Please register to ride or donate,  we need both!

Woodland Drive Music will be playing at the after party. 

Anyone raising $150 or more will be treated to light lunch and a drink. 

100% of funds raised go to the ALS Association in support of advocacy,  support and research for a cure.”
