Good news for beer enthusiasts, locavores and libation lovers, Creekside Brewing Co at 1040 Broad St. (right across the street from Bambu Batu) is re-opening this week under new ownership, and their new drink list is enough to make your head spin. Co-owner Kevin Pratt is the highest ranked Beer Judge in the western US and a certified Cicerone with 25 years brewing experience. So if you thought Creekside Brew’s beers were delicious before (which we did), then prepare to have your socks knocked off by Pratt’s new concoctions. Pratt has also reworked the kitchen menu with an emphasis on classic, heart-warming cuisine to be paired with the updated house beers.
Of particular interest will be Creekside’s new cocktail menu, relying strictly on locally sourced liquors. Who knew that so many small, craft-style distilleries were operating in San Luis Obispo and Santa Barbara Counties? Indeed, Creekside will probably be serving the best selection of local liquors and spirits available on the Central Coast, from the likes of Bowen’s Whiskey, See Canyon Cider, and many more. Stop in soon for a refreshing drink and see for yourself.
Or visit Bambu Batu at Art After Dark, the first Friday of each month, when we feature local artists, local musicians, local energy readers, and assorted suds from Creekside Brewing. It’s a monthly celebration not be missed.
