This place looks small at first, but there are a a lot of nooks and cranies, as well as a large patio in the back. The taplist is very solid, and the bottle list was amazing. Two brewers were present when we were there, which of course doesnít hurt. Great place.

Visited 4 or 5 times in the past few years, mostly combined with a stop to Beer Revolution and/or Pacific Coast Brewing.

A high end / classy kind of place in Oakland that serves expensive beer and expensive food and also sells their glassware for expensive amounts of money. The employees are nice and the beer selection is usually pretty good but itís the type of place that you cant get in and out of for less than $20. If they have something on tap that I really want to try Iíll stop in but for those prices I usually scroll past.

Really cool bar, very upscale, and very nice interior/decor. The taplist is very eclectic and often features obscure/difficult to obtain European beers. They use proper glassware (almost always the glass of the beer/brewery being served), which is great. The only problem I have with this place are the prices. Get ready for sticker shock.

Visited on a Friday afternoon in November 2015. Really nice multi-roomed venue, really nicely decorated and has a beer terrace and a front and back bar. Great selection of beers available, service was good with the barmaid giving a customer more sass than he gave her! Itís a really nice place, a block away from Beer Revolution. Iíd recommend both places. This is definitely a huge step up decor wise but a better beer range at the other venue I feel.

Beautiful pub and needless to say again but yes the beer selection is wonderful. The likes of Prairie on tap, and bottles from Crooked Stave, Grassroots and heaps more. Really well thought out selection. Friendly staff and chatty patrons and you really do feel at home here. Back bar has more beers you can choose from. I very much enjoyed my visit.

bytemesis  (797) Sunnyvale, California | December 1, 2012| Updated December 19, 2012
Rating based on Zwanze Day 2012 (will update next time I go if that is too harsh). Small place with narrow halls and minimal seating; not a great place for 200 people in a line. Staff is medium helpful; not really interested in moving folks through the lines. Tap list was interesting and appears to change often. Didnít try the food or the bottle list. Likely a great place to go on a "normal" day. I was not impressed with how they handled a very NON normal day. OK, returned for lunch on a "normal" day and it is indeed a better experience. Staff were knowledgable and helpful, beerlist was first class, and the food was great. Rating updated.

A very serious Belgian beer bar that takes itself very seriously. Really divided into three parts, there is the small, quaint, pub style bar that is open in the late afternoon, then there is outdoor pic-nic table seating, and then there is the giant bar that opens at night that has a separate entrance but is connected in the back. The two bars actually have different draft lists which makes it fun. I was there for a big Stillwater and Evil Twin tap takeover night that was berserk people wise. Ultra crowded, booming with beer nuts, but still was organized, fun, and the low lighting and old timey decor really make this place special. Bottle list was impressive. We scored a RR Framboise for a Cure 2011 for $18. They also had stuff from 8 Wired, Cantillon, Vapeur, Fantome. Very impressive place. Food is limited to Belgian beer bar style snacks like cured meat medley and cheese medley. Well made and tasty but no "meal time" size food.

A short walk from the 12th St Oakland BART station and great stop before or after Beer Revolution. Initially I thought the place was just one small bar, but then found out they had a garden area and a much larger bar are adjacent. Broadly Belgian beer cafe feel, with exposed brick and beer bottles lining the shelves. They had 25ish beers on tap when we visited which covered Belgian, US Belgian styles, Mikkeller and Evil Twin. I had the Evil Twin house beer - Wet Dream, which was good. The bottle list changes monthly apparently and at this time included 32 beers from mostly Belgium and Denmark. Being from Europe I didnít see anything too unusual on the list. Decent snacks also on offer. Great place all round.

A linear bar with a very good selection and decent service. Excellent cheese plate. Seems to function as something of a local. Friendly clientele.

A great place in an old brick building. They have 2 bars with different vibes. The front bar was dark and quiet, the back bar was brighter with music playing. A nice outside area with picnic tables. The service was great. Good beer and food. I didnít look at the bottle list but the coolers were full. Prices were on the high side. Iíll be back.
