The KRBC brings people back to the magnificent simplicities that life has to offer. From its beginnings, Kernville (the southern gateway to the Sequoia National Forest) has been a wild-west town. Established as a mining settlement in the mid 1800's and continuing as a ranching community through the 1900's, Kernville remains a town of adventure, offering a wide variety of outdoor activities. On any given day, the outdoor enthusiast enjoys activities ranging from the excitement of whitewater rafting, kayaking, downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, snowmobiling, horseback riding, attending rodeos, windsurfing, water-skiing, mountain biking and climbing. If a more relaxing day is preferred, people can enjoy fishing, hiking, camping, sailing, antiquing, and bird watching or simply kicking back and taking in the spectacular views of the Sierra Nevada mountain range. Located at 13415 Sierra Highway, Kern River Brewing Company is in the heart of all these activities.
KRBC is Kernville's first brewpub, we opened in 2005. In 2016 we opened our second location which shares the same parking lot. The Original Pub and Backyard restaurant have different menus but equally amazing dining experiences. KRBC is much more than restaurants and breweries; it's an attraction in itself. According to the Kernville Chamber, on any given weekend the town of Kernville can easily swell to between 20-40 thousand people, all of whom are looking for entertainment and can find it at our establishments. KRBC has received an overwhelming and enthusiastic response from both locals and visitors alike. Approximately 15,000 people live in the Kern River Valley, 2,000 of those people make up the town of Kernville. Keeping the names of the beer local, providing a simple yet diverse menu and having a comfortable place where "everybody knows your name", Kern River Valley residents and visitors alike have found themselves at home.
