Perhaps a few years ago this place was one of the better that Oakland had to offer, but not really at this point. Pretty pedestrian tap list of Racer 5, Sierra Pale, Hacker Pschorr Hefeweizen, Denogginizer, and I believe Brown Sugar being the highlights. They had a Lindeman’s Framboise tap too. The place itself is fine, I guess, but it’s very crowded and kind of a little too hip. I wouldn’t necessarily mind coming here if friends just wanted to go out and get smashed on a weekend night, but not really a beer place.

Good food, nice cocktails...but the beer clearly isn’t a top priority here.

Not really a beer place, more of a hip hop cocktail thing.

Packed even on a Monday night, great food and nice tap list along with a strong bottle list. Good and quick service as well.

Great selection of Belgian inspired beers I had NB Lips of faith and a Rodenbach. Drinks were good to but a bit too pricey. Food looked good, but we were just there for drinks (two drink minimum). Service was a bit slow and the lounge atmosphere was odd. A bit yuppy but that can be forgiven for the quality of beer.
Re-rate: Food is good at least the fries are amazing. They use proper glassware. Service is still sub-par.

This is a delightful new restaurant/bar in a rapidly developing part of Oakland recently dubbed Uptown. There is an attractive bar with a dozen stools, 15 taps and a decent selection of liquor. There is seating for about 50 in the main restaurant area and another 25 or so in the performance room, which also has a large dance floor. There is a pool table in yet another room. The beer list is fairly short but very well-selected - almost half are Belgian. There is a wide range of food available and I had excellent meals on all 3 of my visits so far. When they are not too busy, the barkeeps are happy to talk beer, and they are always very polite.
