Almost didn’t stop here because I thought they didn’t brew. But did a quick check of t0rin0’s rating and saw that it’s basically the same as SLO Brew, and I was on my way to Paso Robles Brewing Comapny (who funny enough, doesn’t brew anymore). Stopped in just in case they had any house beers I hadn’t tried. Just ordered a flight. Beers were okay--nothing great, nothing terrible. Service was friendly enough. Seems like most people didn’t really care about the house beers. For better or worse, the vibe was not quite the party atmosphere of SLO Brew the last time I stopped there.

Really confused as to how this has not been added to the database. Visited a while back when there were multiple Downtown locations (Santa Barbara was already closed but SLO was still called Downtown). As of 14 hours ago these guys were still open so I’ll add it and review it.

Stopped in late on my way up 101 to see the family. Easy to find, right off the main drag across from a park. Plenty of parking available on the street. Service was friendly but they were busy so I got my flight (of house beers, didnt need any Stella or Bud Light) and a burger with a side of some black bean soup. I enjoyed the food and the conversation with some locals but the beer was pretty meh. I still havent figured out after all these years who is making the beers for the Downtown locations. I’ve heard rumors of it being Firestone but the beers are way too crappy to be Firestone. Anyway, next time I head up (in the next couple of months) I’ll be sure to stop in again to get some answers.

Paso Robles Brewing / Pour House are just down the street by about 3 blocks. Check it out.
