The festive spirit of Christmas is lingering in the air and Holidaze IPA is the best beer to feel close to the feast of the winter solstice. 

SLO Brew

Situated in California, SLO Brew is one of the longest standing brew pubs which opened its door in the year 1988. Established by Mike Hoffman & Kathy Ireland, this fantastic brewpub is also known as ‘a pivotal component of the Central Coast.’ Distribution of their core craft beers started in 1995 and 5 years down the lane was the commencement of winning awards. 

“SLO Brew takes home the Brewpub of the Year award at the Great American Beer Festival in Denver, Colorado. That same year we also were awarded two silver and one gold medal for our oatmeal stout, pale ale, and IPA.”

Hamish Marshall (the current owner) had a big contribution in revitalizing the SLO Brew name and taking the brand to new heights. Can-demonium – New 12oz cans were launched in Dec.2016 and distributed across the Central Coast of California. Down the timeline, this brand had some very successful launches like their Blood Orange Cali-Squeeze, canned Craft Beer Micheladas made with SLO Brew craft beer. SLO Still’s ventured into the distribution of whiskey in 750ml bottles and it’s safe to say that they did a great job!
