My wife and I stopped in here on the way to Fresno from LA. The place is brightly lit and very good looking inside decorated with growlers hanging from the ceiling. They have a bar that seats abou 10 to 15 people and about 20 tables. You order at the bar and seat yourself. The food was OK but not great. My wife has a burger that was over cooked and I had fish tacos that were not even as good as Rubios. Both of these were said to be good by the bartender. The staff is very friendly and helpful.

They were pouring about 6 or 7 of their own brews along with Wydmer's Apple Cyder, Stella Artois, and another macro. They also brew their own root beer and orange cream soda. Their beers are tasty but nothing to run out of your way for. Since it is really the only brewey in Bakersfield, it's not a bad place to stop and grab a pint or some grub. The menu had standard pub far as well as some more eccentric things like deep fried twinkies for dessert of a steak salad. We'll probably stop in again if we're in the area and hungry.

Spacious, semi-industrial space with great modern art about the walls, and a healthy collection of antique and vintage motorcycles. Staff was friendly at the self-order bar (food and beer). The guy who ran our food out checked on us 3 times throughout our meal, which was swell (not sarcasm).

The food is pretty tasty and the portions are huge - I like it! A very meat-forward menu, some of it leaning "Texas" style.

Zeus and BA Zeus were fantastic brews. A pretty good selection here with a lot of taps and number of styles represented (though roughly half was something hoppy). Definitely worth a stop.

Visited the brewery tap room on a Saturday. Atmosphere is a mix of industrial brewery and antique motorcycles. Staff is efficient and enthusiastic. Good food. Beers were competent but not outstanding, other than the barrel aged Zeus, which was very good. Glad I stopped.

This place is a semi-industrial/retail area. Been at night and during the day, could use better lighting at night for parking. Nice area inside for drinking/eating, with open visuals into the barrel and brewing areas. Nice décor overall. Open areas for darts and functions, including cornhole etc. The food here is great, never been disappointed. I've sat at the bar and had some wonderful conversations with the staff including a small impromptu tasting with the owner of the new BA Zeus and BA stout, yet to be processed. Also sat with the family at a table and had a nice family meal out. Kid friendly. Nice bathrooms - clean, roomy. I try and drop by when in the area. Hope this helps. Cheers.

My local Brew house. They do a great job making great beer. Their pub grub is great also!
