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.

AT THE BAR WITH BANG THE DRUM - Monday Edition (03/01/21): Frequently Asked Questions.

We’re a year into a pandemic and nothing seems normal so getting calls to inquire whether our business is even open is understandable and expected; however, we are starting to notice a long list of other questions we get asked on the regular. Today we are popping on to check in and answer those normal and unusual common questions for your information and entertainment.

🍻

Like, comment, share, suggest or even criticize. But whatever you do today, don't be a d**k. Happy Monday!

How dare you talk to me like I haven't watched every season of Great British Bake Off

Pie is Pub food, people

We are so close to the end of this, hang in there.

Weather is perfect for patio drinking.

sorry im late, I was running past you

i feel like i got food to go when you weren't serving alcohol...

Are they saying "real food" as opposed to your pies??? Or "real food" as compared to the bags of chips you had at the old place? Maybe they just don't know about the pies??? But if they do and they're still asking that...ASSHOLES

Merrimaker changed hands.

Birds aren’t real

When did you cut your hair?

Iconic mashup.

I need a beer!!!!!

is what i meant

Love the new place!!

They have lovely loose leaf assam tea, which gets my Englishman approval

Match pineapple coconut and ginger

You guys are doing a great job

That sounds delicious!

OMG you guys let me cohost your official BTD podcast

What's Reese's social security number

Our tap wall was full for about one hour yesterday and it was a wonderful feeling. The past few weeks have been pleasantly busy and we are starting to kick up our food and libations production. 

This week we tapped a small batch of a #paleale we, in our abundance of wisdom and maturity, named Udaho. Next week we will tap our first #seltzer made with pea flower. On deck is a #matchaIPA and our #coconutstout, Deez Nuts...seeing a pattern yet? It is in the fine print of our mission statement a -if we can make you laugh while ordering your favorite fun drink we have done our job. Mostly we just want you to leave Bang the Drum feeling even better than when you arrived. 

Alright, love you, stay safe, have fun and drink some beer as the light at the end of this 2020 tunnel grows brighter and brighter.

Build Me Up Maplecup | Maple Brown | 4.4% ABV - our cold weather seasonal beer that was named by one of our Kickstarter backers! 

#seasonalbeer #maplebrown #buildmeupmaplecup #

If you were a Kickstarter backer, we are slowly but surely rolling out our rewards as we get extra time here and there. Also, we are still planning on having a “Grand Opening” as soon as we can touch butts again and dance freely in each other’s faces. What a weird year but forward we move with beer in hand. 🍻

2021! Have you ever been more excited for a new year to come?! Hopefully sometime in this next year we get to hug each other and laugh near one another and maybe there will be a point to wearing lipstick. And we cannot wait to see you smiles once again.

For now, this is our New Year’s week at Bang the Drum:

Wed: 12-8pm
NYE: 12-9pm (come say “good riddance!” to 2020 and then fuel your corona countdown with BTD beer to go).
New Year’s Day: 11-5pm (hangover beermosas and baked treats in the fresh air of 2021!)
Saturday: 11-9pm
Sunday: 11-7pm

🍻to a new year!
