Not the hugest draft selection, but a number of good local options such as Firestone, Figueroa Mountain, etc. They also had some of the bigger names like New Belgium, North Coast, etc. The food is the same as the other locations, which isnít really a bad thing. Not the cheapest option in town, but serviceable.

Selection is pretty good overall, however it is excellent compared to other places in the area. SLO town is lagging on the craft beer movement, for better or worse.
Good service and food. The place is usually pretty crowded, especially during the school year.

Visited March 17,2013.
St Patrickís day was definitely the wrong day to stop on SLO for ticking. So many drunk bros...
Selection is decent like the one in Claremont that Iím used to. A few good choices and a lot of local taps. If you arenít from the area and only stop in for lunch you can at least try some local stuff but then Creekside and Downtown are literally just around the corner.
The layout is nice with plenty of room and a large board next to the door informing you of the taps as you walk in. Service is nice too. Might stop in for a burger some day.

The new go-to beer bar in SLO (sorry, Spikeís). Upscale pub feel and a ton of taps, exclusively featuring American craft beer. Also a large selection of boutique American spirits and wines. Good selection of West coast beers including Heretic, Firestone Walker (they had XV and Double Jack on), Hangar 24, Stone, Bruery, Mission, North Coast, Port Brewing/Lost Abbey (older viscosity!), and plenty more. Looked like about a third of the taps were dedicated to rotating, and also most of the bottle list, which had maybe a coupe dozen selections. Iíll update with more details after coming back for some food. Prices look standard, and they use nice tall tulip pint glasses for regular strength beers and tulips and snifters for Belgian or high gravity stuff. Looks like they will be doing regular "keep the glass" nights with logo stuff from featured brewers. Overall doesnít quite compare to top spots in the Bay Area or SoCal, but itís definitely the standout on the Central Coast right now.
