Top breweries in San Luis Obispo

Looking for the top breweries in SLO and the surrounding area? Then look no further and read on…

San Luis Obispo (SLO) County is chalk full of great breweries lead by decorated names such as Firestone Walker Brewing but the town of SLO is quickly becoming a hub. Over the course of a couple visits to town, I have managed to hit, what I think, is the majority of stops in town. While I have had time to sample them all, I have ordered them in order of expedience e.g. if you have limited time in town plus some extras I have not tried but listed for future exploration. Now plan a trip and try these places out!
