Kernville's only brewpub has an extensive selection of craft beers, and brew their own on site. It's a clean, modern environment and very crowded most nights. There's a small outdoor patio to eat or drink on as well. Food is standard brewpub fare.....sandwiches, chicken, etc., and it's quality, but not the reason to come. Bring some friends, grab a brew...

We stayed in a motel 8 miles North of Kernville, decided to give the Brewing Company a try since they're dog friendly on the patio. I had the bacon cheeseburger, my wife had a chicken sandwich. The burger didn't have much flavor, I skipped the mustard since I hate mustard, maybe that's what they rely on for flavor? The chicken... More

I like this place although it can get very crowded. The after-work rush fills the place. This is not really a restaurant, more like pub fare. Craft brews are all interesting and worth a flight to taste them.

I love the atmosphere, totally relaxed and inviting. Love the home brewed root beer, and the pear framboise!! (Peach liquor with a raspberry shot, yum-OH). You can learn about the brewing process which is right in the middle of the restaurant where they microbrew. The Big Blue Burger is just PERFECTION! Grilled onion, blue cheese, and finger licking good with... More

This was one of my favorite food stops on our trip. We sat up top with a good view of the brewing kettles. The sampler was fun we each got different beers so we ended up tasting 8 varieties. Lots of fun for a quaint little sleepy town. The food was good too. We would definitely come here again if... More

Great, honest, food; friendly and hard-working staff (and patrons)...and hand-crafted beers. You can tell by the number of locals who frequent this place that the food must be good (and it is.) This is the place, if you're looking for a meal and a little something to sip on in Kernville.
