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.

(Visited 06/2006): Lengthwise Brewing is located on the outskirts of Bakersfield about 20 minutes from the airport. It is immediately off Ashe Rd on Schirra. They have a decent-sized parking lot.
The building looks like a warehouse, and they have stacks of kegs as pillars in the entrance. Inside it is very open, with a pretty good collection of breweriana. The bar is in the middle of it all, and they have a banquet room in the back where you can walk right by much of their brewing equipment which is very cool.
The beer selection here is pretty good. They have 6 Lengthwise beers, plus about 3 import draughts from Bud Light to Arrogant Bastard. I did not see what bottled beers were available, if any. The Lengthwise beers run the gamut from Golden Lager to Porter, and all of them were above average. They offer all of their available beers in a sampler.
Service here is pretty good, and they were more busy than expected for a late lunch crowd. Orders were placed at the bar and the food is brought out to the table.
As for the food, they have typical pub grub (sandwiches, appetizers, fish & chips, salads) and it was very tasty.
All in all I was pleasantly surprised to find a brewpub in Bakersfield and will definitely make it a point to visit when I am there. Some of their beers even make it up the hill to Tehachapi.

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.

Local brewpub with good but not great brews (what do you expect in Bud town) They have a good Porter and a nice raspbeery ale. The food is excellent (try the tri-tip sandwich on freshly baked rolls).

Nice little brew pub, nothing real special though. They arenít brewing to make the best possible beer for geeks, they are just out to make popular beers for the mass public. I asked if they would ever make an Imperial Stout, or anything big of that nature and they said no because it just doesnít sell here. There Porter is good though.

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.

Iíve been here plenty of times for brews and food but also to pick up home brewing supplies. Darren and Jeff are great guys, they know there stuff but also the usual bar keeps know what they are doing as well. Food is decent but not really out of the realm of normal pub fare. There are arcades to keep the kids attention while one enjoys. TV so you can keep up on the scores. Brew is a standard 6 but seasonals are usually available some are better than others. Print yourself a map donít ask for directions.
