It was kind of packed since it was Younger day, but really cool bar. Nice outdoor patio, seating inside, and a decent sized bar. Very friendly service, solid beer selection, and fair prices. Pretty close by public transportation and in a fairly nice area in Oakland.

April 2008 - Visited with Chris and Meredith from thebeergeek.com. This is where it all started for them. This is a fun neighborhood kinda-Irish pub in the lower level of a corner shopping area. They have a nice selection of rotating taps, leaning heavily towards California brews. The Sunday brunch menu was traditionally pub-y, but quite good. Nice place.

Quaint little place a few blocks from the BART station. A dozen tables and a decent size bar area are the non smoking in door seating options. They have two big flat panel displays for sports viewing. The tap list is nice with 30 offerings including craft selections like Green Flash, E. J. Phair, Hoptown, Moonlight, Speakeasy, Schooner’s, Iron Springs and a few others. The food was pretty much pub grub and tasty. The help is very friendly and not all that beer knowledgeable. Great spot to stop for a bite and a craft brew.

Sat out on the patio on Saturday afternoon. By the end, the place was swarming with Cal fans after the football game, but it was pleasant for a while. Lots of good beers on tap, and service, though not great, was adequate (though they did accidentally overcharge my credit card). As a rater, I’d prefer them to do a better job at identifying the brewers of the beers they have on tap.

This is a well-designed drinking place, with a long old wood bar, numerous tables and outdoor seating. There are about 30 beers on tap, mostly west coast microbrews, and a few good bottled beers. There is a neighborhood feel to this place and the patrons seem quite friendly. If you’re not looking for Belgian beers and other imports, this is a good place.

Great location, good pub food, nice beer savvy crowd. Pretty good but limited tap selection. The bartender was friendly and helpful. Nice place to stop in close to BART.

A genuine friendly service. Very good selections of beers although geared up towards IPA’s and Ambers. Value is good, most pints were less than $6.

Great food. Outstanding selection of beers. On any given day the bar is a who’s who of brewers and beer industry folks.
