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

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

Bang the Drum Brewery  

We are a small craft brewery 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. We serve 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.

Great selection and quality of beer, added bonus of homemade in-house pies to die for! Hard to choose between savory and sweet so got both- don't regret it!...
