The Temblor Brewing Company in Bakersfield is less than a year old and they are already making into the BrewBroadBlog! TBC is a fantastic new brewery that happens to be right off #BuckOwensBlvd. On the drive there, I saw the famous “Bakersfield” sign. It was dark of course, so I didn’t see all those oldsters under the sign though!
The brewery is in a big, modern style warehouse but the décor is inviting and friendly. Lots of chairs, tables, couches, and stools to choose from. There is an outside patio but who wants to put up with Bakersfield heat on an August night? I guess smokers will put up with that, but they’re the only crazy ones.
When you walk in, you get one of two views:
The left is the bar area with the brewing vats in the background and on the right is the seating area.
There are games available to play at your table while you get drunk.
The foursome of gals at the table next to us was enjoying a lively game of Guess Who? They thought they were so funny and clever but really, they were drunk and slurry. Not fair, I wanted to be that way!
Behind the bar was the merchandise they sold, at least just a few examples of it. They offer shirts, hoodies, hats, and more. The old man wanted to buy a shirt but the shitty $5 extra for his size made him say no. He has his principles.
Temblor was the last part in a two-part pub crawl of Bakersfield, just passing through edition. We were hungry and needed food.
There are two separate places to order beer and to order food. We first got in the beer line if that tells you where our priorities are. A quick once-over of the menu revealed a veggie burger to be had. In Bakersfield? Wait, where was I again?
Sean got the veggie burger and I got an order of pretzel bites. We drank our beers as we waited for our food to be bought out to our table.
I had the Streets of Bakersfield IPA because it was the strongest available and the name is a nod to the late, great Buck Owens. Sean had a Rhapsody in Red which measured in at 6% ABV.
The veggie burger and pretzel bites were delicious. It just might be the best veggie burger in Bakersfield because it could very well be the only!
Here I am, enjoying my Streets of Bakersfield with the brew vats behind me. It was pretty packed and we were there on a Saturday night.
Temblor Brewing Co. is a welcome addition to Bakersfield’s growing #craftbeer scene. The fact that they offer a veggie burger on the menu makes this the best god-damned place to eat and drink in Bakersfield. Vive el Temblor!
