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.

A beautiful and comfortable place to have a great beer. The selection is normally top notch. Prices are a bit steep but you get what you pay for. Very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly staff.

Stopped in around lunch for a couple beers and took a set at the front bar..I felt right at home, Doors open with a nice breeze, Bartender was very knowledgeable and the tap and bottle list was very solid..Will be stopping in again forsure next time I am in town.

This place is in a fairly nice part of Oakland. Interior is very nice with 2 bars and some outdoor seating. Service was good, you have to go to the bar for service, staff can tell you about all the beer they offer. Selection was really good, mostly Belgian style offerings with some other nice stuff thrown in. Tap list is great and bottle list is even better but some are pricey. Value is decent, but prices can get really high on the specialty stuff. Overall a must stop if in the area, will be back again.

They have two warm and inviting bars and an outside area with picnic tables. There is no table service, you have to order at the bar and they will bring it to your table. The selection is substantial with an emphasis on Belgian beers. They have a limited menu of pub food. Prices are higher than average.

I'm not sure what to say here. Come to this bar, no question, hands down a great beer bar. Random and rare selection usually. Great crowd, great service. Prices are reasonable. It's one of the best non brewery bars I have ever been too. Stop reading this and go get a beer!

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.

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.
