Visited over Thanksgiving weekend on the way to the bay area.
This place is pretty out of the way as far as being on a main street goes. Very large interior, nice service, average beers, and decent food. The real reason Iíd go back is for the chipotle rub. I love that stuff. The smoked salt and pepper are ok. Didnt try the other thing they had.
Large warehouse space in a small business park. Decent amount of seating at the large bar area and a lot of tables, too. The service was fairly quick and friendly. The prices seemed average for beer and maybe a little high for food. The beers were just okay. Certainly drinkable, but not great.
Stopped in here on a recent business trip to Bakersfield. Sat at the bar and got to chatting with Rowan, one of the assistant brewers. He suggested a Centennial and man, what a suggestion, great beer. Had the fish tacos too which were very tasty. The other beers were hit or miss, but Rowan was free with the tastes of each of them, so that was really nice. Tried their Centennial, the wheat, and a seasonal brown ale. Also had a Kern river Double IPA on a guest tap. In addition they had brewing supplies on site and I picked up a can of fantastic coffee. Well worth the side trip if youíre anywhere near Bakersfield.
