What can you say about a place with 14 fast rotating taps and a bottle selection to die for. I have to get a beer just to roam the fridges to look for a beer! The owners are fabulous and location is very convienient to BART and Jack London Square. Ah, to sit on the patio sipping a Belgian in the correct glass and laze in the sun. Really, doesnít get better....

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.

One of the best beer bars around. Amazing selection of beers on tap that are constantly changing. They have all the rare stuff you donít see other places. Service is great, ask a question about beer and get an honest answer. Decent prices, from 5 to 10 dollars depending on the beer. They also have a few cooler doors for bottled beer that you can either drink there or take to go. Didnít eat while I was there but they had a BBQ going that smelled great. Overall no one can match their selection of rare beers, this is my new Sunday spot.

I feel I need to counterbalance a previous review by wavers1. The bottles are indeed organized by country, region, and style. As far as the dimly lit experience - I have to admit, I moved to the east bay 2 years ago from the east coast and I find most barsí lighting level equivalent to a dentistís chair. Beer Rev is plenty bright. The only reason I docked them for ambiance is that I feel it is not high on their priority list, and I understand that. When there is a higher priced belgian bar that obviously spent tons on atmosphere a few blocks away, I can see why they saved money on decor in order to pass the savings on to us - the consumers. I for one am overjoyed that the owners have chosen to share their obsession with beer with the rest of us at a reasonable price.

A brilliant addition to the East Bay beer scene. Think of the City Beer model of bottle shop/beer bar, but with a much better bar and atmosphere, but just as many good bottles to choose from. Super chill vibe and lots of good beer decor. The owners are very welcoming and just love beer and want to share that passion. Just about the best bottle selection in the state, and a great rotation tap selection that had plenty of good rarities when I stopped in. The inside has a moderate amount of seating but isnít large, but they have a nice front deck with tables and benches. There is a good punk/rock/metal soundtrack going on inside, and it did get pretty loud when full of patrons. Iíll give them a 10 for food because they have a sweet vegan soul food restaurant next door that will deliver you your food while you are at the bar. You just canít beat that. Draught prices are quite good with plenty of good beers for 4 dollars, which is good for the area. If you have the opportunity, definitely check this place out. Add thjs to the Trappist, and Oakland has one of the best beer bar scenes in the region right now.

One of the only bars where I always feel right at home. Amazing selection and prices (more for draft than for bottles), knowledgable, friendly, and patient staff, casual atmosphere. Love the big porch in front, as well as the fact that theyíll let you bring over food from the vegan soul food place next door.

Very cool craft beer store/bar with many lesser known breweries on tap and a bottle selection that leans toward California and Belgium. The atmosphere is kind of like a Saturday afternoon grill out and itís a good place to enjoy craft beer when youíre not in the mood for a crowded and pretentious SF bar. The bartenders and owners are also very helpful. Iíll definitely try to return on a semi-regular basis.

One of my favorite spots. There is a full wall of fridges filled with bottles that you can buy or drink on premises for a small fee. The chalkboard menu of on tap beers is extremely well selected and adventurous. Environment and music is very punk rock. Very fun 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.

Nice spot, was there for a brewers night and it was fairly busy. 15-20 beers on tap and a bunch of cooler with beers to go or drink there for a $1 corkage fee. Some odd and not easy to find stuff on tap, Craftsman had 2 beers when I was there and the with the bottle selection I saw it would be easy to drop at least a $100. Definitely need to go back when they are less busy. It does have a dive bar kind of feel, but I kind of like that...
2011 Update. They now have 42! beers on tap, some one of a kind and specials. No food but they will let you bring in food from wherever and there are plenty of places for food within a couple fo blocks of the place.
