Muy buen lugar con una exquisita seleccion de cervezas en barril y una magnifica variedas de cervezas embotelladas. El ambiente es muy agradable ya que se puede platicar y charlar de las cervezas degustadas. En general un excelente lugar!

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.

Reminds me of the Toronado which I did not like, same bad smell too. Bartenders seemed a bit nicer but the place was just too filthy. Also there was some crazy woman running around scaring people may have been the owner?

I love the more chill atmosphere at this place. You can grab a beer and sit on the front patio area and enjoy the great weather of the Bay Area. Bottle selection is good although, itís a little annoying searching through the dimly lit fridges. Drafts options are always changing and I can always find something great. Staff is okay but friendly. Also, there are many restaurants around that you can bring food from and eat on the patio.

I can say this when you at a place rate it then because itís a pain to do it later. This place is like the red headed stepchild of the Trappist down the street. Poor manís Trappist. Killer BBQ down the street.

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.

Oct 2012. Next place after The Trappist. Very similar to Toronado at SF; a garage packed with tons of interesting US craft beers and some rarities as well. It has the same Bohemian curiosities, such as the smells you experience at Toronado. Service is worse, though.

Tap selection was amazing. Unfortunately the bar is rather dim-lit and itís hard to see the entire bottle selection. If youíre carrying a flashlight itíll be easier.

This place is usually pretty busy. They seem to have a following that outdoes the quality, selection, and environment. I think they might be the only beer bar with this many taps and selections of to-go bottles in the East Bay area. The service is usually pretty good. That snotty, know-it-all, impatient quality often found in the service in Bohemian places like Beer Rev was very noticeably absent. This was a huge plus. Prices are fairly reasonable. Only one bathroom. And it is a unisex. Itís a tight fit inside the bar. The only reason Iíd give it an above average on environment is that it has outdoor seating. Of course, in that part of Oakland, thereís not a lot to look at out there. They close early and sometimes, whenever they choose. They have a huge variety of tap beers that get rotated regularly. They offer several different options of to-go bottles, but the bottle beers arenít anything impressive. Some are obscure, but none that are remarkably sought after. Pliny the Elder seems to sell out pretty quickly.
