SLO BREW × EXPANSION

SLO BREW ANNOUNCES PLANS FOR MOVE AND EXPANSION

Popular Pub Will Maintain Authentic Spirit and Atmosphere After Relocation

After 27 memorable years in Downtown San Luis Obispo, SLO Brewing Company is happy to announce the expansion and relocation of its popular restaurant, bar and concert venue to a new space on Higuera Street this December.

Over the years, SLO Brew has become an iconic cultural and musical hot spot that features local and world famous bands and performers. The venue offers an intimate and authentic live music experience where fans are able to get up close to their favorite artists while enjoying SLO Brew’s award-winning craft beers. Together, all these elements create an atmosphere of good vibes, fun and accessibility that keep their following coming back.

The new SLO Brew is slated to open in December at 736 Higuera Street, just a few hundred feet away from the original Garden Street location and still in the heart of downtown San Luis Obispo. Located in the historic Carissa Building, the new space will feature new elements, including a wood-fired pizza oven, an outdoor, creek-side dining patio with fire pits, and four all-suite lofts designed with a modern urban aesthetic on the upper floor. The restaurant, bar, brewing tanks and “kettles”, and the concert stage will share the 6,500-square-foot first floor, while the Whiskey Lounge will overlook the main floor from the mezzanine, complete with reserved seating, bottle service and a private bar.

Destined to become downtown San Luis Obispo’s most coveted accommodations, the SLO Brew Lofts are spacious two-and three-bedroom self-contained units, complete with kitchens, dining areas and living rooms with fireplaces.  While located above The Brew, on the second floor, they will have a separate entrance and can be reserved through the SLO Brew website or VRBO.com.  The heart of The Lofts is the Carissa Club, featuring a gourmet kitchen, lounge area, fireplace and billiard table, as well as a meeting space, and a large private roof top deck overlooking picturesque San Luis Obispo Creek and the nearby Mission.  The Carissa Club is reserved separately.

SLO Brew co-owner Hamish Marshall is adamant that the quality of the musical performances will continue to be top-shelf when the doors open at the upgraded SLO Brew building and that the dance floor will remain.

“The upgraded SLO Brew will keep the local spirit it’s always had,” said Marshall. “The concert experience will still be intimate, but we will now be able to offer more dining options, an enhanced sound system and innovative design elements, along with fresh brews and pub-favorite food pairings.”

In addition to the SLO Brew move, SLO Brewing Co. is also constructing a second site, to be known as The Rock. Located off Broad Street, near the airport, this new brew facility will expand their production capacity, and will feature a tasting room, restaurant, and event space.   Already on tap at over 30 local restaurants and bars in San Luis Obispo County, SLO Brew has plans to ramp up beer production and their commercial distribution.  The Rock is scheduled to open early in 2016.

About SLO Brew

Since 1988, SLO Brew has been a vital part of the San Luis Obispo community, regularly featuring live performances from local, national and internationally recognized artists, alongside their award-winning craft beers. The restaurant, bar and intimate music venue has made SLO Brew a popular cultural hub for residents, music and beer lovers alike. SLO Brew plans to continue to evolve as one of the major destinations for music, food and great craft beer in the state, offering a unique and authentic atmosphere for their guests to enjoy.

Cocktails Around the World

There are many different alcoholic drinks that you can enjoy these days, from premium beers and ales to fine wines, spirits, and liqueurs. Another thing that you can indulge in is one of the wide variety of delicious cocktails, which can be easily created at home. The choice of cocktails that you can rustle up these days is immense with something to suit all tastes and preferences.

In fact, you can enjoy sampling cocktails from around the world with some simple cocktail recipes. Lots of countries have their own signature cocktails so you can travel the world from the comfort of your own home by creating some of the cocktails from around the globe. You could even make an event of it with friends and family by also creating dishes from the same destination and getting a theme going.

Some of the great cocktails you can enjoy using signature drinks from around the globe

Many countries have their own signature drinks, and with these you can create a host of sumptuous cocktails that are perfect for any occasion. For instance, let’s take Russia as an example. Russian vodka is the perfect addition for many wonderful cocktails including Bloody Mary, vodka martini, and the White Russian. This is a very versatile drink that can actually form the alcoholic basis for many wonderful cocktails making it perfect if you enjoy a refreshing alcoholic beverage.

If you want something with plenty of kick and bite to it, Tequila is an excellent choice as the basis for your cocktails. Originating from Mexico, this super strong drink can be used in a variety of popular cocktails including the popular margarita, the Tequila Slammer and the Matador amongst others. You can also create the national drink of Mexico with tequila – the Paloma, which tequila combined with grapefruit soda and garnished with lime.

For those looking for a more refined and elegant cocktail, we turn to France which is where champagne originates from. While champagne is great to drink on its own, it can also create some wonderful cocktails such as mimosas and the delicious Kir Royale, which is made from a combination of champagne and cassis. This is a great way to add sparkle to your cocktails and add a touch a luxury to any event.

If you prefer something that is warming and distinctive, you can create cocktails from Scotch whisky, which hails from Scotland. This whisky is aged in oak barrels for several years to create that distinctive flavor and taste. There are many cocktails you can create that will make you fall in love with this beverage including the Rob Roy, the Rusty Nail, and the Godfather.

This is just a sample of the many drinks from around the world that can help you to create sumptuous cocktails for you and your friends to enjoy. All you need to do is look up some recipes, invest in a cocktail shaker or blender, and then get ready for a great night of cocktail sampling.

Comparing, Contrasting, Cutting, GUINNESS

The Guinness Brewery at St. James’s Gate in Dublin has been brewing beer since its founder, Arthur Guinness, signed his now famous 9,000-year lease on the property on December 31st 1759. The brewery began its life producing ales for Dublin City, it would soon embark on a journey brewing new styles of beer originating in London known as Porter’s and Stout’s. This journey would lead the then small family brewery located on the outskirts of Dublin City to become the largest Stout brewery in the world. Along the 258-year journey that Guinness has undertaken it has been frequently enjoyed at the table alongside a well paired dish.

 

The secret of a good pairing lies in the three C’s, Comparing, Contrasting and Cutting.

 

We will now use Guinness Draught Stout as an example of how to Compare and Contrast the same beer with two different dishes, and examine how the presence of one can interact with the flavor of the other.

 

When Comparing we are required to find foods with similar flavor and intensity to that of the beer. These flavors will then compliment and resonate with each other.

 

For our first pairing, we use Guinness Draught Stout, found in new throw-back cans featuring the Kinkajou, a marketing creation from the 1930’s, 40’s and 50’s by legendary artist John Gilory. Distinctively dark with a rich creamy head, coffee and malty, and the perfect balance of bitter, sweet and roast characters. These flavors are the product of using roasted barley in our brewing and also give Guinness Draught Stout it’s iconic ruby red color. When the barley is roasted at 466 degrees Fahrenheit for 2 and 1Ž2 hours it undergoes a change called the Maillard reaction, a chemical reaction between amino acids and reducing sugars that also gives browned food its distinctive flavor. The flavors from the roasted barley used in Guinness Draught Stout balance wonderfully with the similar rich roasted flavors of an Applewood Smoked Bacon Sandwich with each sip of stout harmonizing with every bite of sandwich until both glass and plate are empty.

 

GUINNESS DRAUGHT & APPLEWOOD SMOKED BACON SANDWICH

 

After looking at Comparing let us now review Contrasting Guinness Draught Stout with a different dish. As we know Stout tastes of coffee and bitter flavors, let us use those to contrast against and accentuate the sweet and creamy deliciousness of a warm Apple and Pear Tart nestled under a generous scoop of Vanilla Gelato. This pairing is very similar to having your cup of coffee with a sweet pastry or confection.

 

GUINNESS DRAUGHT & APPLE AND PEAR TART

 

Finally let’s discuss Cutting. We will utilize Guinness Blonde American Lager as our example for Cutting. Guinness Blonde American Lager, light and hoppy with floral and citrus notes and a long malt biscuit finish. This crisp and refreshing lager has a lively mouthfeel provided by its ample carbonation, this carbonation is ideal for “Cutting” through creamy and juicy dishes and cleansing the palate after each bite. While enjoying a burger at a BBQ or creamy ham and cheese croquettes using this pairing technique, Cutting scrubs the palate and resets your taste buds after each sip.

 

BLONDE AMERICAN LAGER & HAM & CHEDDAR CHEESE CROQUETTES

 

We hope you enjoy using the 3 C’s for your future beer and food pairing adventures! Happy St. Patrick’s Day from the Brewer’s at Guinness and always remember to Drink Responsibly.

GUINNESS × ST. PATRICK’S DAY

200 Years of Friendship and St. PATRICK’s DAYS

In Time for Milestone St. Patrick’s Day, Guinness is donating $1 to charity for each adult that dons a ‘Stache

Above the Upper Lip, USA (February 21, 2018) – This year marks the 200th St. Patrick’s Day Guinness will share with America, the latest reminder of the two-century connection between a legendary brewery and its good friends across the Atlantic. Once again, in the days and weeks leading up to March 17, it’s time for us all to embrace the stories we tell, the memories we make and the bonds we build over a pint of Guinness.

The Guinness brand is encouraging all Americans, 21 years and older, to make a simple pledge (assuming they’ve already promised to drink responsibly, of course): gather with friends, new or old, toast to the many things we all have in common…and give a ‘Stache. Indeed, this St. Patrick’s Day, the Guinness ‘Stache – that unmistakable hint of foam left behind on the upper lip after the first sip of stout – is back as a symbol of the goodness and the Irish-ness that lives within all of us.

From now through March 31, 2018, when adult beer lovers share photos of their ‘Staches – self-grown and groomed, drawn-on, or Guinness-enhanced – on social media (tagging @GuinnessUS and using #StacheForCharity), Guinness will donate $1 (up to $100,000) to the Guinness Gives Back Fund*, which supports nonprofits that contribute to the common good in our communities, including Team Rubicon, a veteran-led disaster response organization.

“Over the past 200 years, so much has changed – yet so much has stayed the same, like people coming together to raise a pint of Guinness with their friends on St. Patrick’s Day,” said Guinness Brand Director Emma Giles. “We are proud to be part of such an enduring tradition that celebrates Irish heritage and, when it comes down to it, the power of friendship. The Guinness ‘Stache is a great way to bring that to life in a fun way for a great cause.”

The symbol of the ‘Stache will appear alongside Guinness brand activity at bars and restaurants and on social media throughout the St. Patrick’s Day season, including in some digital content that pays homage to 200 years of mustaches in America. To spread the word about the bonds a ‘Stache can build, the brand is releasing additional digital content that will help us all reflect on the friendships we cherish – and some very recognizable Guinness fans will also get involved in spreading the word.

In addition, it’s time for the latest limited-edition Guinness Draught cans, which will hit shelves in time for St. Patrick’s Day. The ongoing series celebrates the famed Guinness ad campaigns of the 1930s and ‘50s. While it doesn’t have a mustache, the kinkajou – which we thought was a sloth at first – will be featured on this version.

To keep an eye on everything the Guinness brand is doing and to get in on the ‘Stache action, follow @GuinnessUS on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook.

Whether you’re making a new friend or meeting an old one, having a Guinness Draught, or ordering up any other Guinness beer this St. Patrick’s Day, please respect the beer and drink responsibly.

*The Guinness Gives Back Fund is a corporate donor advised fund administered by Fairfield County’s Community Foundation. The Fund’s mission is to support local charitable organizations which are classified under Section 501(c)(3) of the Internal Revenue Code that are aligned with the corporate focus areas of Diageo North America, Inc.
