Family-owned Tap It Brewing Company is located in a sort of industrial park area just south of downtown San Luis Obispo.
You enter through a sort-of promotional anteroom, which also stocks merchandise and bottles for sale, and then the taproom is on the right.
There is rather large open outdoor area with long tables and a long oval fire pit. The taproom itself feels like a sports bar, with many high stools and small circular tables. The colors and font for their logo reminded me of that of the San Francisco Giants. A large window behind the bar gives onto the production area, and you can watch and hear the bottling line slowly clanking away.
The decor is kind of old-timey automotive themed, with an ancient gas pump in the bar area and old rusted out stock cars set up high on the outdoor area wall. There was some fairly loud reggae on the sound system and a couple of sports TVs going.
For their regular beers, flight of four beers for $6; pints for $5; pitchers for $15. Specialty brews have variable pricing. Bottles are also available: 6-packs, 12-packs, and 22oz. bottles. It wasn’t terribly crowded on a late Wednesday afternoon However, given the size of the outdoor area, I could picture it filling up with college kids on weekends.
The service was friendly and beers were pretty good, all in all. It’s probably one of the better beer places to visit in San Luis Obispo.
