Cool microbrewery with great beers! Ladies try the raspberry ale! Sit in or outside under Five Fingers (Sierra Nevada) or gaze off to Ridgecrest below(my home town!) Great afternoon getaway to this fun establishment!

I am glad we finally got to stop and see the Indian Wells Brewing Company. They have an amazing variety of soft and hard drinks made on site and some interesting beers also made on site. If they are running the botteling line you can watch thru a window in the shop. Very interesting to see. This is a great... More

I really enjoyed their beers, their Amnesiac IPA was very good. Unfortunitly they did not have any sours. They were more than happy to let me try any beer with a very small tasting cup. Nice hard sodas also.

Although I don't drink - my customers do & this Gem in the Desert offers crafted beers that they love. October seems to be the month to stock up on special Octoberfest libations for the Christmas season. Great bear starts with great water, and nothing is better than from the pure mountain springs that they tap into. Cheers...Salute.

I love the fact that those who are not interested in alcohol but love those who are can be entertaining in this brewery gift shop by the plethora of vintage and current candy, myriad flavors of taffy, and not-your-7-11's-offerings of soft drinks. I got a few pieces of 4 different taffys and was charged only a buck. The lime flavor... More

This is still one of our favorite local places to come for dinner. It is a room with a view. Finally we have white tablecloths good value, fair prices, very good food, and excellent service. Need I say more. Oh by the way I had the trout and it was excellent... $15 with baked potato and salad!!

We stopped at IWBC on our way to Lone Pine to get some beer and soda. We were very pleasantly surprised at the variety of drinks. Great atmosphere and great people! Will definitely go again!
