About Us


Now with two locations in San Luis Obispo, Central Coast Brewing is a local crafter of small-batch beers with local flavor.


Central Coast Brewing opened in 1998 and is located in beautiful downtown San Luis Obispo. Recognized as one of the premier brewing facilities on California's Central Coast, CCB is known for its variety of hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind ales and lagers. Whether at the bar enjoying a fresh beer or out on the patio, Central Coast Brewing is your neighborhood brewery. 

CCB has been bursting at the seems at our original location, so we just completed a brand new brewery, brew pub and restaurant at 6 Higuera St in SLO! The new location allows us to brew a lot more of our award-winning beers, and gives us the space we need to share them with all of you. Love the old location on Monterey? Don't do we! It will not only be open, but now has its own bathroom and a cafe next door.

Brewmaster Brendan.jpg



Master brewer Brendan Gough began homebrewing in his garage while studying business at Cal Poly. He quickly began winning medals at local homebrew competitions and decided to take the leap into professional brewing in 2009. After starting at CCB as an assistant brewer, Brendan left the nest and spent two and a half years brewing at Firestone Walker Brewing Company.

Today he's back home at CCB, producing a variety of fresh, hoppy ales, stouts, barrel-aged beers and lagers.
