New craft beer, wine tasting shop coming to SLO Public Market

A beer and wine tasting shop with six existing locations in California and one in Virginia will open at the San Luis Obispo Public Market at Long Bonetti Ranch.

The company, Bottlecraft, will offer tastings of local, domestic and international craft beer and wine. It showcases hundreds of bottled or canned beers, as well as on draft.

SLO Public Market, a collection of shops, restaurants, a farmer’s market and a brewery, among other businesses, is under construction at the corner of Tank Farm Road and South Higuera Street and has plans to open its first commercial spaces in September.

“Bottlecraft’s goal is to truly be a tasting room offering the local standbys, as well as beers you won’t see anywhere else,” SLO Public Market said in a statement. “Their wine selection focuses on small, family-run producers and natural wines made through organic and sustainable farming practices.”
