History of Libertine brewing company
Libertine Pub was founded in 2012 on the premise of bringing the best beer selection to the Central Coast, while brewing unique beers and products to compliment. Our Wild Ales spend their first night of existence in an open-top coolship. This process allows the local wild yeasts of our area to naturally start the fermentation process. Relying on our environment gives our beers a true Central Coast Terroir. Our original facility in Morro Bay utilized hot lava rocks and true spontaneous fermentation to produce a truly one of a kind Wild Ale. As our fan base grew, so did our desire to grow and share our product with the world. In the summer of 2015, we secured a property at 1234 Broad Street in San Luis Obispo. There we installed our new (at least new to us) 15 BBL copper Pub system and this was also the birth of Libertine Brewing Company. On February 15 th , 2017 we shifted gears and opened our new restaurant and coffee bar in the Broad Street location. On any given day you can find many of your favorite Libertine beers as well as 56 more taps featuring our favorite craft brewers and local wines. Here we also focus on delicious urban pub fare and true to form hand crafted coffees. Obviously being short on space we moved our aging and packaging to Santa Maria. We still brew at Broad Street but ship the wort to Santa Maria for aging, blending and packaging. In keeping with our vibe and passion for the ocean we decided to expand once again. On April 6th, 2018 we opened the doors to our Avila Beach tasting room. The primary focus being our own Wild Ales, music and of course….the beach!
