About


Some Awesome People: Reese, Noelle, Elissa, Daniel—on the patio at our new location!
Noelle Painting The Exterior Of Our Original Location

Bang the Drum has existed in a little metal building on Orcutt Road in San Luis Obispo since August 31st of 2014. A year and a half ago we were told that the property our little metal building lives on was sold and our building would no longer exist in the future. We knew we had some time to find a new place but we didn't know how long. We began our search immediately, and looked at SO MANY buildings. Every "For Rent/Lease" sign was considered but the problem was finding a spot that held all of the magic of our current home. We were looking for a space that was zoned for the sale and production of beer, with enough parking spots to house the events we have (don't you love just being able to pull up, park and walk in?!), and had an outdoor space to enjoy the sunshine and our beloved dogs. AND the music! We HAVE to have music - so that means no residential houses in proximity. We thought it would be a pipe dream to find ALL of this and stay on the same side of town we grew up in but we were going to get as close as we could.

Okay, we'll stop with the mushy stuff. Here is the reason for the kickstarter: WE FOUND A PLACE WITH ALL OF THINGS WE WERE LOOKING FOR, AND MORE! If you haven't had a chance to look on our Facebook Live, we posted a video in which we WALKED in just a few minutes to the new location. The space is amazing with 1,500 sqft of patio space surrounded by trees, so many parking spots you can't count them all without getting bored, 4,300 sqft of temperature controlled indoor space with two of the four walls being all glass, it is zoned right and the closest residential areas are clear across the railroad tracks. We will also be able to do food which means that we can now serve wine and cider in addition to our Bang the Drum beer. 

Hops Everywhere! Noelle Helping In The Brewhouse

Here is where we need your help - all of this is amazing but it's HUGE, the space and the project. We have an incredible community who is offering all sorts of help on things we need to move and open our new space and even still this project is going to quite the financial endeavor. 

Our goal is to have Bang the Drum open at its new spot off of Laurel Lane in time for a Halloween party on November 1st. We have just over 2 months.

Your pledge will be used to accomplish each level below. Realistically it will take just over $100,O00 to fully fund our dream location but our kickstarter goal of $30,000  is what we need to get our doors open. Here is the order we will use the money you help us raise. 

1) Get our licenses, build a bar and a brewhouse to move our current equipment and open the doors. 

2) Build a kitchen with a kickass menu. 

3) Make this place a dream for music - for you and the musicians that play here. A solid house system and good lighting so you can see their beautiful faces. 

4) Upgrade our brewhouse! Larger, stainless steel and temperature controlled Fermentation Vessels will make all the difference in keeping the beer you love on tap and as consistent as possible. **One of the coolest things about our new space is it already has floor drains!!**

5) Make this place feel great with all of the little things that make a huge difference in making you feel happy and at home - like lighting and plants and comfortable seating and fireplaces and art and coffee. 

BTD Fam - Cheers!

Risks and challenges

We are aiming for an open date of November 1st! (just in time for a big Halloween Party)! It's a bit aggressive but we are all-in to make it happen. Our SLO community is awesome and the city, ABC, our architect and general contractor are all working with us; however, getting things permitted and built out can take a varying amount of time. Many projects are dependent on the completion of another making it super important to keep the ball rolling on each project. The more capital we raise the easier it is for us to get things moving forward quickly.
