Went for the Citra release with my brother. Excellent road trip! Locals are chill and treat you like they have known you forever. The owners were friendly, met one of their moms too. She sat at the bar next to me and she told me the history behind their beer names/shirt designs. Which was very cool in my opinion! The food was so good I had the pita twice on release day! The atmosphere is so relaxing. Outdoor seating on deck and patio/grass area. They have guest taps which is cool for those that want to sample from other good breweries at the same time. Speaking of other breweries, the should consider taking a cue from these guys when planning their next release! The lotto/pick up system was nice even if I didn't win.

Kern River Brewing Co. Is in a very cool little mountain town where the people are (mostly) friendly. The Brewery is most definitely a diamond in that ruff as far as eateries are concerned. I will often take the hour drive up a treacherous canyon highway to get a growler or two and while i'm up there, the burgers aren't bad either. I recommend the Just Outstanding IPA or Citra... if you can get the latter. It's brewed in fairly small quantities and is well worth the drive alone. They have an aged stout that is supposed to be legendary although I've never been up there while they had it. Pretty good brewery.

Kern River Brewing is a small 7 barrel operation in Kernville California, although they are in the process of tripling their production. I'm not sure how this will effect their QC and availability. Their beer lineup is small, but exceptional in taste and quality. My favorites are Citra, Class X Stout and Just Outstanding. I'm sure Citra will be more readily available in the future :o(, I liked the exclusivity. The food is bar food, but the burgers are really good and the ambiance is rustic, including growing hops on their patio dining area. Overall, definitely worth the drive especially when they brew their harder to get line up.
