Wow, $38 per ticket plus fees to see Dweezil Zappa and I show up to find that the concerts are now all downstairs in this ugly U-shaped bar with almost no seating. And, likely due to the U-shaped room, sub-par acoustics. When I asked the...More

Went here on a Saturday around 4:30. Wasn't too packed, but when we asked the waitress if it gets busy there, she said usually later when they have a live band come it. I'm sure that would be fun, but we weren't going to be...More

Great selection of beers on tap. Don't bother with the pizza, the sliders are the best. Wait staff friendly, knowledgable and attentive.

My son loved the mac n cheese pizza. I had a good Cobb salad. Great beer and fun atmosphere. Think they have bands downstairs. We ate upstairs - crowded but we were able to sit at bar by steps.

This place has great beer and their food is that of any sports bar. But their music venue is great and usually they get the best bands to play here. Lots of local college kids go here, so if you're looking for a romantic night...More

Downtown San Luis Obispo's longest running brew pub since prohibition, SLO Brew, recently announced plans to expand and relocate. SLO Brew is debuting in its new location on Higuera Street early 2016 and will feature an upgraded brewery, restaurant, bar and music venue. Careful consideration has been taken by the entire SLO Brew team to ensure the new location will keep its authentic local spirit, paying special attention to handcraft the SLO Brew experience for its loyal clientele. When doors open next year, SLO Brew fans can expect the venue to be enhanced and booked to the brim with local and world famous performers and bands. SLO Brew would not be complete without the authentic brewing tanks and "kettles" that have been cooking up SLO Brew beer since 1988. These iconic tanks and kettles will be transferred to the new location and, as a new signature amenity, The Brew has added several self-serve taps, offering up a variety of fresh SLO Brew beers. State of the art kitchen equipment and an impeccably appointed dining room attest to SLO Brew's commitment to an elevated culinary experience. Diners can order gourmet pizzas and mouth-watering burgers, as well as other hot and delicious pub-favorite foods, expertly paired with SLO brews.
