Another place I eagerly anticipated, although my Garmin decided to take me down the many twisty and windy roads from the west (note don't always listen to GPS, see my Charleville Winery and Brewery review). Once here, the outside had a saloon feel to it and to a lesser degree inside. I mentioned to the server from how far I had come to try their beer and she in turn went and got the head brewer. Really nice people and outstanding beer. About all I can say negative is that it would be nice to try their vaunted IPAs there, but any brewery can say that. Selection might not be quite as broad as others, but they get away with it with a roster full of winners. Almost exceeded my already high expectations in every way possible. Perfect score.

Came by at lunchtime to pick up my Citra. Good service, good atmosphere, and most importantly, excellent beer. Big ups to their flagship brews as well as some impressive seasonal IPAs.

This is my local so I may be a little partial on this one. Right now they have a great tap selection with the 6th anniv/barleywine/knee deep collab, so the tap list is better than normal. The food is always good with daily specials, parking is usually ample with paved and dirt lot options. It has a nice outside deck/lower tables option with a nice view into the surrounding valley/town/hills. Loses points for the one M/F bathroom options. The crowd is usually laid back - locals, and those travelling into the area for other pursuits besides beer (since it is kinda out-of-the-way). Camping season weekends can see this place packed to the rafters so plan accordingly. This time of year mid week - seating plan is wide open. Live music on Fri/Sats. They are expanding in the back but not sure on overall plans/dates etc. Kid friendly. Hope this helps. Cheers.

Delicious brews, when I went, they had their core beers on tap, as well as Deep River IPA which is the collab between KRBC and Knee Deep, as well as their barleywine, their session IPA "gravity check," and their fresh hop IPA. They also had Dirty Hippie in bottle which I picked up. I came to get my Citra and stayed at the place next door. Had the "blue mine" burger, tasted like it was grilled at home, fantastic, had bleu cheese, sauteed mushrooms and onions on it. Highly recommended, best place to eat in Kernville (though 'The Cracked Egg' had an amazing omelette the next morning!)
