March 8-10th - Spring Citra Release

We invite you to join us this Spring for an unforgettable experience filled with the perfect blend of nature's beauty and craft beer delight. Picture yourself frolicking amidst a vibrant tapestry of wildflowers, surrounded by the majestic mountains. Feel the refreshing embrace of the mighty Kern River as you dip your toes in its crystal-clear waters. Indulge in mouthwatering meals crafted with care, perfectly complemented by the exquisite taste of our Citra Double IPA.  Citra with Nectaron will also be flowing and is available for purchase onsite only.


Embark on this incredible journey by planning your trip today, and we assure you that disappointment will be far from your mind. However, if circumstances prevent you from venturing to the mountains, fret not! California residents are fortunate enough to enjoy the convenience of doorstep delivery, bringing the essence of our experience straight to their homes
