This is a fun brewery/restaurant right in Kernville. Good food and a nice selection of regular and seasonal beers brewed on site. A mix of tourists and locals along with good service and live entertainment made for a fun evening. This is a must for your Kernville visit

We just had chili, a burger, and beer and salad but servers were nice, atmosphere very relaxed. Neat photos and things to look at too. Beer was very good and they offered tasters at no charge.

Excellent selection of local type beers,bar food very good although eating fishing and chips out of a metal bowl with a paper lining was a bit challenging as it kept moving ,maybe a plate would be better

Staying at the Kern River Lodge, the brewery is right next door, so it would've been rude to ignore! Their IPAs are great and the food served to accompany them is well- priced and very good.

We had a good time at this brewery and it actually surprised us with good food, including options for Vegans and Vegetarians in our group. Beer was delicious and the staff super friendly, attentive and fast. If you love beer and good food, this is a good spot to visit in Kernville.

I went there with a group of friends and the locals became friends in a hurry. This microbrewery exemplifies a good time being had by all. I'd go back tomorrow if it wasn't so far from my home in NC.

On the main street, nice casual atmosphere, with good food & reasonable prices. I had a veggie burger & their homemade criss-cut fries are great! They.'re known for their boutique beers, tho' we didn't try any. Would go again.
