The SLO Chamber celebrates the grand opening of continued member, SLO Brew’s newest endeavor, Rod and Hammer’s SLO Stills small batch distillery and craft tasting room, with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
A California surfer and Aussie jackaroo founded SLO Stills in tribute to a lifelong friendship rooted in appreciation for quality spirits and the Central Coast lifestyle. Each handcrafted whiskey is cut with purified Pacific Ocean water, uniting Australia and California in a bold, timeless spirit.
Anchored by a copper horseshoe bar, the tasting room comes embellished with cowhide upholstered seating and leather couches for a relaxed, intimate atmosphere. Wicker lanterns cast a warm glow over the whiskey lounge from an industrial ceiling, featuring functional piping that carries grain from onsite silos into the Rock’s brewery. Adjacent to the active distillery, the room displays enticing scenes of vintage surfboards, a historic direct-fired “reflux still” deemed Ol’ Woody, and Marshall’s enduring masterpiece, a locked antique Cary Safe.
Located to the right of SLO Brew Rock’s renowned kid-friendly restaurant, Rod & Hammer’s SLO Stills will be a 21+ venue, open Friday through Sunday from 3:00 PM to 9:00 PM; according to a recent press release.
