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.
