Great beer, great place to hang out with friends. Can get a little loud in the dining room but that just adds to the fun!

That's right, no mention of the class v stout mustard, you gotta ask for the bacon jam. Before we get to that part, the Santa Fe egg rolls are delish. We started with that and then I had a bacon cheese burger with one of their local brews. When I asked about the sauce, the waitress suggested the bacon jam.... More

We had lunch there and liked the salads. The Class V was also super and had complex tastes, as advertised. This is a great place for lunch, and I am guessing a casual dinner. When there is water in the river I am sure that it THE place for post whitewater brews.

I don't drink so going to a brewery was a suggestion from a friend. The food is good and a cool choice of different styles. Everybody swears by the beer and people come from all over to get it. The atmosphere is what did it for me, just a really fun place.

We stopped here on way up to Sequoia National Forest over labor day weekend and enjoyed a couple of pints and some great lunch (pulled pork sandwich and fish tacos). They have a great selection of their draft brews and we really enjoyed their session IPA.

My first visit there I chose the bar to sit at. The bartender was a dark haired female who provided bare minimum service. Customer service is important and its what I do for a living as well. To saddle up to a local guy at the edge of the bar and chat him up instead of talking to your customers... More

I remember when the Brewery first opened but never got a chance to visit whenever I was in town. We visit Kernville several times a year and this visit I was going to make sure I didn't miss out. I ordered the deep fried pickles which were so delicious. They were perfect! I ordered the sampler of what I think... More

What a treat!! We stopped in to have a beer and a bite while waiting for our room at the Kern Lodge and was treated with great hospitality. I'm not much of a beer fan but the server offered me a Pear Cider which was so delicious and light. Exactly what I was looking for. My husband had one of... More

This is a very quaint little town and you have to check out this brewery if you like beer and simple foods.
