I had looked forward to going to the brewery for a week after viewing it’s website. What a let down. The beer was the only bright spot. I sat and waited over 30 minutes before someone would help me. The food was microwaved. I get the feeling that it won’t be around long. At least that’s the impression the staff left me with.

Big restaurant and bar. The place was clean but old and unkept, could use a remodel. The beer was decent, nothing special. The food was good, fair service.

Nearest bar from my hotel so had to check this place. Couple of sports channels on tv. Beers from own brewery and some local guest beers. Food was nothing special.

Standard brew pub, very safe and is a crowd pleaser with my co-workers who drink bud light otherwise. Beer was standard, safe, and hitting all the generic brew pub styles. I forget the beer I have had here, for whatever that means. Place is always busy happy hour time. If Applebee's opened a brew pub, this would be it. I am not putting this place down, you'll have fun, but I will be at Trappist down the street.

Great brewpub in Oakland, weird area though. Great taps and decent bar food.

Visited numerous times over the last 4 years when in the area for Trappist or Beer Revolution.
The atmosphere can be a bit depressing as it’s quiet, dirty looking (just worn down wood furniture really), and on a quiet street. The house beers arent great either but ocasionally they’ll have a good guest tap.
I hate to badmouth a brewery but this is a stop I make once every year or two to see what’s new.

Visisted in Sep ’08 on a Saturday evening and once again a few nights later.
Largely drank their own beers which were ok but nothing special.
Good ambiance and friendly staff who I got chatting to.
Only came here as we were staying at the Marriot a few blocks away so definately not worth the trip under the bay but if you’re in Oakland it’s worth popping into.

This place is almost depressing. The floors and furniture all have sort of an unfinished wood look to them. The place just seems dirty and dusty. The house beers are atrocious. The only thing that saves this place are the guest taps. Their house beers are also a bit on the expensive side, which is unfortunate considering their quality.

This appears to be your standard brewpub. Bar is to the right as you walk in. They had 4 house beers, and about 15 guest beers. The guest beer selection was pretty solid with Union Jack and Double Jack to name a few. I didn’t have any of the food, so I can’t comment on that, really. Service was decent. Bathrooms were clean enough, and they were downstairs. Their house offerings weren’t very good. It’s just a block from The Trappist, so if you want a more relaxed, laid back environment with non-Belgian beers, this place is worth checking out.

Ressemble à un irish pub d’aristocrate en plein jour, un peu plus chaleureux le soir j’imagine. Sélection correct à l’exception d’une impériale stout extraordinaire.

Interesting little stop near the Trappist. Knowledgeable bar tender, and a great group of people inside (surprisingly they all seemed to know beer pretty well). Prices were okay. Didn’t try the food. Odd mixture of music. Cask was VERY infected! The other beers ranged from slightly sub par to pretty decent (for one or two). Seems like a really old place. Guest taps were pretty good with both PTE and Blind Pig. There brewery downstairs is ancient looking. Kind of a novelty, but as far as I know this is the first Extract Brewpub that I have been to. Good beers with that in mind. Not a bad stop if you are in the area.
