About Central Coast Brewing

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

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 Central Coast, producing a variety of fresh, hoppy ales, stouts, barrel-aged beers and lagers.
