I came up to the Kern Valley for a day trip to watch my brother compete in a Mtn. Bike race. I've previously had a few beers of theirs, so I made it a point to stop by here for lunch and check out the brewery.

Its right in the cool little tourist area of Kernville, the perfect setting for a small high-quality brewery. For my beers, I ordered the Sequoia Red and a seasonal Saison, both were really good as expected. The food was on par with the quality of their Beers, my Buffalo Chicken Sandwich and fries was really good, and my girlfriends fish and chips were also fantastic. Service was good, and the place had this real nice laid back atmosphere which lets you know that you're not dealing with the LA type of people.

I need to find more excuses for me to get up there, day at the lake, camping, riding... ah screw it, i'll just come up for the brewery.

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.
