Kern River Citra Not too long ago, I saw a lone bottle sitting in the cooler. Not knowing any better, I thought Kern River was another quality California brewery, so I passed and bought something else that day thinking I could easily find it again later. Fast forward to now, I come to find out not only is Citra on par with PtY and stuff from Alpine, you can only purchase it at the brewery, which is a 4-hour drive for me. Yes, it's not as far or long as others travel to purchase beers, but it was right in my finger tips, literally. I even held the bottle to read the label. All I had to do, is take that bottle to the cashier, pay for it, and enjoy it.
