I could not beleive that this was a beer store - so many taps that I lost count, plus endless bottles jam packed for SF beer week when we were there, for a Lost Abbey and Firestone Walker event. Great crowd, amazing vibe. Best beer store I have ever visited.

I try to make it to the east bay at least once a trip to the yay, usually also hitting either Drakes or Berkeley (Triple Rock and Jupiter). These guys have a ton of random stuff on tap at all times. Pretty neat. They also have a lot of bottles to pick from. There are some food options close by but they dont serve food here. My only real complaints about this place are how busy it gets and the fact that there is one toilet for all hundred and something people that squeeze into the place.

This has easily become one of the best places for beer in the Bay Area. Huge taplist, crazy rotation, and tons of interesting stuff. Prices are quite reasonable, staff is very friendly, and the ambiance is great. One of my favorite places to visit.

Bustliní crowd on a stinking hot day in late September. Great selection with many new beers to try. A lot of bottles to peruse through as well. No nonsense bar crew and pretty much a hectic feel to the place. I had a good time here.

Crazy dive bar cum bottle shop that is pretty hardcore craft beer. The ceiling is decorated with brewery flags and dried hop vines. The taplist when I was there was a Firestone Walker and Lost Abbey/Port tap takeover. 13 Lost Abbey beers on tap and another 10 from Firestone Walker and Deschutes. Tons of other local beers. Service was very good considering over 200 people were packed into this beer store sized room. Glassware was nice, keg rotation looked rapid. Outdoor seating area is a big plus. Very sociable place. I donít think Iíve ever been in a room with as many hard core beer people in my life.

First things first: ambiance-wise, this place is a hole. Uncomfortable, packed with a rather loud crowd, seating sketchy, not very nice smelling either. The patio was decent, but it was very hard to maneuver. Sometimes took a long time to get beers, though they seemed to know what the beers were about. Great selection: lots of quality beers in bottle and keg, and a few hard to find beers as well. I would definitely go back, though itís not the kind of place I would want to hang out in for long.

My favourite spot of the recent visit to the bar area. A nice cozy dark space with about 50 taps of awesomeness pouring at any one time. Loads of IPA, barleywine (odd for summer but oh, so good) and other high gravity stuff. Fairly priced and really quite awesome. The clientele and the bartenders were super friendly and chatty. A bunch of bottles in the coolers that you can either drink here or take to go. A fantastic spot.

Very interesting place, and definitely the go to spot for local beers on tap. They devote a large fraction of their extensive tap list to small brewery northern California beers, some of which I have never seen anywhere else. Also have a row of coolers opposite the bar with "priced to go" beers. Prices are decent, selection is no better or worse than any of a bunch of other places in the area. They do carry some Russian river, but surprisingly few other North Bay beers. I was hoping to score some Marin, no such luck. Bar itself is cramped and grimy, which is part of the vibe, I guess. There is a patio with long picnic style tables as well when weather permits. Donít go here looking for a whale, but if you want to try a selection of interesting locals that have yet to make the big time, this is your place.

Located a short walk from the 12th St Oakland BART station, which only took 15minutes to get to from Central SF. Beer shop meets bar concept. I suppose I could loosely liken this to a rock bar inside, but itís obvious with all the beer everywhere what the true focus is. Nowhere near as much of a dive as Toro SF. Crazy selection of 47 taps, the details of which are crammed onto a tiny blackboard above the bar. Real local focus i.e. I didnít recognise half of the beers on. Amazing to see 2004 BFM Bon-Chien on draft! Lots of fridges opposite the bar full of interesting bottles at decent prices. Fridges separated into beer style, which always helps. All beer can be taken out or drank in for a nominal $1 extra. Small, but nice outside area at the front is also great on a sunny day. Staff were really friendly and knowledgeable. This really is one of the best places to drink good beer anywhere!

Wow, just found a top 5 tickers bar in the world, come to this place... huge outdoor patio with a lot of seating inside, 6-8 huge coolers line the back wall with beers for you browse and take to the bar to open, 47 taps... the selection is unreal, at least 100 bottles of great stuff, then 47 drafts of rare local microís, I probably had only heard or had tried about 15 of the beers, the best part is that usually locals beers on draft are terrible, these were all outstanding... my only complaint is that the bartender I talked to didnít know a ton about beer so I pretty much just had to choose what I wanted to drink... Go here
