Bring on the beer (before the books)!



Get your kicks before back to school kicks your butt. Head over to Tap It Brewing Co. for a swath of new brews ranging from spicy to juicy to insanely fruity. Slurp up the SLO craft brewery's new Mango Tiger (unfiltered imperial IPA with fresh mango puree) or B. Weisse (a German tart wheat beer with puckery lemon and pineapple flavors), both on draft now. Rotating taps coming soon include a spicy-yet-refreshing Tepache Weisse, inspired by Mexico's favorite street drink (think zesty pineapple rinds, cinnamon, and peppercorn). A little burnt out on West Coast IPAs? Try Tap It's northeast inspired IPA—the Haze Faze—featuring a truly juicy flavor and aroma profile. This Aug. 18 starting at 5:30 p.m., the outdoor beer garden will also feature live tunes by True Zion, a band known for its fusion of roots reggae, funk, Latin, and ska. Raise a glass before the curtain drops on summer shenanigans! Tap It Brewing Co. is located at 675 Clarion Court, San Luis Obispo. Δ
