Old meets new at the Brew

SLO Brew

A few  months ago I wrote a blog about the moving and complete revamp of the SLO Brew, a staple hot spot of San Luis Obispo‘s nightlife. Well stage 1 is now complete and it’s fantastic!

With the tag line “Off-centered Ales for off-centered people” (a category I proudly fall into) Dogfish Head Craft Brewed Ales are in my opinion some of the most unique and interesting ale-based concoctions in the marketplace today – and they have definitely proven to be an unconventional brewery.
