This is the only brewery in the Antelope Valley that serves their own food, so it has an appeal for that reason. However, I find their beers to be average at best, with uninteresting styles and some quality issues apparent in the taste. Food and service is decent. I'd go here for hanging out on "The Boulevard", as long as you don't expect too much from their beer.

This is a nice place on the main drag of Lancaster. It gives off a comfortable vibe, with ample room indoors and a patio outdoors. It was a warm sunny day so we sat outside. I noticed they were dog-friendly, which always scores points for me.
There were twelve of their beers on tap, with five guest taps. I had Velocity, a very nice imperial stout, and Propulsion, an average IPA. My wife also had Propulsion and felt the same as I did.
Food was excellent. We had the mushroom quinoa burger. Being vegan we always appreciate the effort some places put into the menu. The fries were about the best I've ever had.
Service started out great and then faded. It took forever to get the check.
We're visiting family for the week here in Lancaster. Will likely be back.

This is a completely new and modified review since first visited and reviewed about 2 years ago. Place really impresses. Beer is very well made; beers are true to style and with real flavor saturation and complexities. Staff is knowledgeable and very friendly. Food is some of the best I've had at a brewery. While this is perhaps the only place of merit in Lancaster, it may well be worth a drive to try out.

Big fan of the Potential Blonde (Kolsch) on hot days and the Fusion (porter) on cold nights.

Amazing deep fried pickles - and I don't like pickles. Ever.

Great selections, helpful servers & bartenders who know their stuff, and a good atmosphere.

Good people.

Great brewery out here in the High Desert. Local brewed stuff is gr and nice to have rotating guest taps. Also a great bottle list. If your stuck out here its a must stop in Lancaster, CA. There food is exceptional as well. Located in the heart of downtown Lancaster.

I visited Kinetic for the first time last weekend. It has a sort of hometown BJ's feel to it. The brewing part of the space is near the front behind glass doors. The rest of the space is seating and the bar. I sat at the bar and got the sampler (which comes out in an awesome wooden tasting board with the Kinetic logo). The bartender was very nice and helpful with us the entire time we were there. The quality of all the beer was great. They have a good selection of 10 or so of their own beers and about the same number of guest beers. We got some food that was pretty good but I have had better bar food at other places. Prices are reasonable for everything. Definitely worth a stop, especially for the area.

I had been waiting for this place to open for a while after hearing about it from some friends. I have to say it was worth the wait. The selection of beers on tap is quite good, all from southern California breweries and they also had 5 of their own in-house brews on tap, and from what i was told is that they will have up to 8 of their own brews rotating once they are in full brew mode(only been open for 2 weeks). The food was excellent and well worth the price.
Great place, I will be going back very soon, and cant wait to be able to pick up a growler to take home!!
