I have come here a few times. This place has a great patio for beer and sunshine, but inside is a bit divey and hard to maneuver if there is any kind of crowd. Service is usually good and knowledgeable. Beer selection is outstanding with 40+ taps and coolers full of bottle beer (unfortunately rather randomly assorted). Beer prices are reasonable for the selection. Overall a great place to p/u beer and sample a large variety, I have tried to come on a brewer event night and the crowd was crazy in the small space but otherwise have had some good times here.

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.

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.

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

If Beer Revolution served food, it would be my idea of Beer Heaven! There are few better places to wind down from the work day than the patio at the Revolution. Great selection, regularly bringing in brews that Iíve rarely seen elsewhere. Great supporters of local brewers, too!

Minor faults - too bright, minimal seating...however this is due to the numerous dark fridges of amazing beer. Great tap selection, then make your own 6-pack to take with. Great prices. I would have to say that this is not a place where I would hang out if they didnít have amazing beer so there has to be some points off for that.

Really this is almost as good as it could possibly get here in the Bay Area for craft beer. Prices are average, service is only slightly below average (thereís variation and some good service here but...) and the layout can make it difficult to get a beer sometimes but where it really counts, Beer Revolution excels. Itís got a deck and itís a great peaceful oasis to kick it with some buds, have some great suds and not be bothered by crowds (usually), staff trying to turn over a bar stool or angry riff-raff. The selection is also superb.

Great tap list - over forty beers on tap, and their bottle selection is quite solid and fair priced (some bottles are cheaper than you can purchase at a brick and mortar shop). Every time I have been here I have found at least five or six beers on draft that I would like to try. The owners must have the hook up with The Bruery because they regularly have Provision Series beers on tap and even stuff that is not supposed to be available outside of the OC. There is no food available at the bar, but there is a soul food place next door and it is cool to bring food in to the bar or eat on the patio. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable about the beer styles and is willing to give tasters of most beers. Though The Trappist is about five or six blocks away, Beer Revolution is a much better value for the money and a little less pretentious.

Fraggle knows his shit and he better if heís going to try and sell craft beer around the corner from The Trappist. I actually like beer rev more than the Trappist because there is a less pointed type of ego in this joint. Itís not the most comfortable spot and seeing all that beer on the floor waiting to be put in the walk in makes me wonder about itís condition but other than that, I love love love beer bervolution. Great selection, great prices, I like the 12 oz pour thing. Go to beer rev. You wonít be sorry

Incredible tap list and a solid bottle line up as well. Cool trays, bottles and growlers displayed all over the place, with some hop vines (I believe artificial) hanging from the ceiling, as well as some Oktoberfest type banners. The first time I went, I had just gotten off work and was wearing slacks and a button up long sleeved shirt. Man was I out of place! Everyone else was in black and had at least three tattoos (that were visible). Not that thereís anything wrong with it, but it was like a punk bar. The past few times I have been in, the crowd seems to be balancing out a bit. They are now attracting people from all walks of life to make for an eclectic crowd so everyone feels welcome. Great job Fraggle and Rebekah! (sorry if I misspelled your names!)
