Black is Beautiful

SLO Brew & Liquid Gravity Brewing Co. have come together to craft a Coconut Coffee Stout in an effort to raise awareness against race-based injustice as a part of the Black is Beautiful initiative. Today the collaboration is going live for presale. Drink well, do good.

Brewed in a 20 BBL batch with 1800 lbs of malt for toasted notes of caramel followed by light additions of CTZ hop to tease a slight bitterness. This deep, rich brew is layered with fresh ground coffee & coconut for an 8% summer stout.

We are incredibly humbled to join up with our friends Liquid Gravity Brewing Co. down the road & hundreds of breweries worldwide to raise awareness for race-based injustice. As part of the Black is Beautiful beer initiative we will be making a collective donation to the NAACP SLO County Branch. Get in on the good stuff.

Available starting 8/5 online and in brewery taprooms.

SLO BREW LOFTS

SLO BREW ANNOUNCES NEW CITY-CENTRAL ACCOMMODATIONS IN DOWNTOWN SAN LUIS OBISPO

The SLO Brew Lofts Poised to Become SLO’s Most Coveted Address

Destined to become downtown San Luis Obispo’s most sought-after accommodations, SLO Brew Lofts will radiate a cool, contemporary vibe and are perfect for any type of getaway or celebration.

Located at the heart of Downtown San Luis Obispo, SLO Brew Lofts are perched above the new SLO Brew on the second floor with their own private entrance. Each loft overlooks the lively downtown scene, featuring views of the bustling and historic Higuera Street, the famous Farmer’s Market and the picturesque San Luis Obispo Creek. SLO Brew Lofts enjoy a city-central location and a happy proximity to dozens of walking-distance restaurants, shops and pubs, putting guests in the middle of all the action.

The spacious SLO Brew Lofts will feature one, two or three bedrooms complete with kitchens, dining areas and living rooms with fireplaces. The tastefully furnished spaces are intended to be inspiring to their guests and provide a sense of chic, authentic comfort.

The SLO Brew Lofts are designed with clean lines, exposed brick walls and solid reclaimed Douglas fir floors throughout, creating spaces that project a modern urban aesthetic. To provide comfort with a sense of sophistication, “The Lofts” are furnished with custom designed, renewably-sourced hardwood furniture, with each loft featuring a different color story centered around large hand woven rugs in either neutral, blue/green, warm earth tones or green-tinged hues.  Every bedroom has either a California King or Queen bed, some with contemporary four posters, and all covered in white duvets with accent pillows and throws that echo the theme color.  The three-bedroom lofts each have spacious private balconies with outdoor seating for four with views of the historic Mission San Luis Obispo de Tolosa.

In addition, each loft has its own kitchen and dining area, including high-end appliances and a dining table. Three-bedroom lofts also have seating for four at a countertop bar, and all kitchens have Moroccan patchwork pattern backsplashes and solid wood cabinetry that matches the custom hardwood furniture.  All SLO Brew Lofts guests also have access to room service, available from the SLO Brew restaurant below.

In the center of SLO Brew Lofts is a hidden space, dubbed the Carissa Club, accessed through a disguised, speakeasy-style bookcase. With its oversized “live edge” solid plank table, it lends itself equally to family gatherings, casual entertaining or for private meetings. The Carissa Club has its own private fireplace as well as a bar with SLO Brew beer on tap. Here, guests can make arrangements with the brewery for special tastings or dinners.

Another highlight of the SLO Brew Lofts is the large, 700 square foot private rooftop deck, overlooking San Luis Obispo Creek and the nearby Mission. Featuring a variety of seating options and multiple fire pits, the deck is available to the occupants of one of the three-bedroom lofts.  All five lofts, including The Carissa Club, may be reserved individually, in their entirety or in any combination.

“We wanted our guests to have the feeling that they were in their own well-appointed apartment,” explained Rod Cegelski, co-owner.  “Whether they are traveling as a couple, with a group of friends or family, or on a business trip, SLO Brew Lofts are designed to make everyone feel at home.”

With the intention of setting a new standard for modern accommodations, SLO Brew Lofts air a lively, upbeat atmosphere matched only by the SLO Brew downstairs and Downtown San Luis Obispo outside. Perfect for small get-togethers, birthdays, graduations, anniversaries, business gatherings or any type of celebration, SLO Brew Lofts are a place to take in and celebrate life’s important moments.

The interiors of “The Lofts”, as well as SLO Brew and the new brewing facility SLO Brew Rock, were all designed by Celadon House.   Based in San Luis Obispo, Celadon House will be available to work with our guests who would like more information about the design and process of the projects. Accommodations at SLO Brew Lofts can be reserved through the SLO Brew website or VRBO.com.
