They have the best calamari appetizer and other really good food but it can be overly crowded most of the time. Very popular place.

While staying at The Kern Lodge next door, I and some friends dropped in here for dinner on a Thursday evening. They have a good selection of craft brews, and the choices change from time to time. The staff are great! The food is pretty good too!

The KRBC started out several years ago as a small craft brewery with a modest menu, in what had been a long-time Mexican restaurant. Due to the great success of their beers, the deliciousness of the food, and the fun atmosphere, the owners/brewers were able to expand the original building and brewing equipment, and have recently opened a full-up brewing...

We spend a lot of time visiting the Kernville area, which always means we stop at KRBC! They have a wide selection of typical food you would find at a brewery-- burgers, sandwiches, salads, and lots of things to snack on. Our favorite has to be their deep fried pickles! Their pretzels and house-made dipping sauces are always a huge... More

Love coming here after boating, hiking, to sit on the deck, meet with friends, or just because it's 5:00. You'll come for an hour and end up spending three. The food is good, the beers are good, the owners are rad. If you're going to stop one place in Kernville, this is it.

We stopped in for a late lunch and were pleasantly surprised. This is a working brewery with a cafe/bar. They offer great local brews to be sampled with the four 5 oz beer flight. Goes well with the hearty German-style brats and sandwiches.

Great spot - big spaces - now in 2 buildings! Good family spot with various sports games on TVs... Had their beer cooked bratwurst and chicken salad - both delicious! Great brews they make similar to tastes from BJs. Took home some 22oz beers after trying out their tasting sampler. Service was excellent and with a smile! Must go to... More

Went with 17 buddies. We were well taken care of. The old brew house was more quaint and local and the food was more to my liking, meaning, burgers and fries, not sauces and fru-fru garnishes and tiny French fry sides. The new brew house which is adjacent was attractive but a more So. Cal vibe which I was trying... More

This is a fun and casual dining choice for Kernville. I would have rated five stars if my delicious beer would have been colder. The waffle fries are better than average. Their homemade mustard made the perfect dipping sauce. Good service and yummy food. We will definitely be back!
