We visited this quaint brewpub on our way home from Christmas is Death Valley National Park, not that it is exactly on the way home though. Again, a quaint place with dark wood interior and functioning brewery downstairs behind the bar. We enjoyed a couple of seasonal offerings and some hearty food before raiding the bomber cooler and heading on our way. While this is out of the way I recommend visiting and perhaps taking in one of the National Forests or Parks nearby.

I was here in late November, in the dark, and didn’t eat so I can’t speak to ambiance, food, or view. There’s a restaurant in the front and a bar with a limited menu in the back. The beers are solid to great and the staff were really friendly. The Just Outstanding IPA is one of my favorites and their pumpkin beer was a surprise. If you don’t usually like pumpkin beer you might like this one. Quite mellow. Bomber fills $12-14.

La route pour s’y rendre quand on part de San Diego est encore plus satisfaisante que la destination. La pinte de Perspicacity que j’ai engouffré la seconde de mon arrivée aura valu chaque kilomètre. Beau petit village qui rappel Alpine, la bière également. Seul bémol, la bouffe était assez ordinaire.

Really awesome location! I love the mountains, but nothing beats CITRA!

Stopped in "on my way" to Palmdale for work. Pretty nice little place with outside seating and a view of the tanks from the bar. Four regular house taps, plus several "guest" beers and a few seasonals. They had Class X when I was there, which was pretty cool. Sampler tray of the four mainline beers is just $5. Food is pretty good from what I had, and again reasonable. Service is friendly and pretty helpful overall. Beers range from decent to pretty damn good. I would definitely hang out here if it was not so damn far from, well, everything.

A really nice little place. I feel like this score is showing up low but I suppose since I went in the middle of the day in the middle of the winter in a summer town the ambiance was going to be a bit off. The selection isn’t huge. It’s about 6 guest taps, and 5 house taps when we were there. That also is dragging down the score. THE GOOD NEWS!. Everything else about the place is great. The staff was warm and friendly, the beer was really good and the value is great. The food was excellent. I’d definitely be back every time I’m in town.

Pretty much the only place in Kernville to go. The house beers, of course, are the star of the show. Prices on those are pretty fair, but I’ve never eaten here. They have some interesting one offs from time to time. Pretty cool little place, just way too far away.

Went out to KRBC today for the release of Citra. It was well worth the drive. The food tasted very similar to some food I would make on the grill which added to the rustic charm of the area. The beer was amazing. I didn’t drink anything other than citra but that in itself was more than most places can claim. I will be making it out here again, next time with my kayaks and for the weekend.
