A real fun place to grab some brews and a burger. The Centennial and the porter are must tries. They almost always have Just Outstanding IPA on tap here to.

I travel 36 miles one way at least 3 times a month to have my Pig filled and to drink in the relaxing atmosphere of Lengthwise, from the owners to the bartenders to the people who prepare and bring you your food they treat you like your part of the family. The Cent is my favorite.

(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.

My favorite place in B-town. The chili is amazing and goes great with several Cenntenials! Love the stage behind the bar and laid back atmosphere. Two things they have that are fantastic: the Star Wars arcade game and that deep fried twinky!!!!!

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).

The food is just decent at best. The local beer is pretty good, but definitely not something to get too excited about.
