Visited during SFO beer week. The atmosphere was bad but not what I expected overall for this place. Service was good during our visit when it was quite busy. They had about 20+ taps that were all pretty good along with a decent bottle selection that had strong mixture of Belgians and US based beers. I agree with some of the other reviewers in that prices could be a little high for some of these beers and not worth it every case. Overall in a decent location on your way to Beer Revolution in the Oakland area. If you are in SFO do you need to go out of your way to visit with all the great beer and cocktail bars, probably not but a must visit in you find yourself in the Oakland area.

Easy to reach, a 5 minute walk away from the nearest BART station. A small and dark bar focused on Belgian styled beers. Pretty nice tap selection, didn’t have time to check out their bottle list. Food was okay, but a bit pricey place overall. Still definitely worth the visit if you are in SF area.

Probably the best beer bar in Oakland. Awesome selection of rare and hard to find beers. And if you can’t find what you want on tap, they probably have it in a bottle. I love that they always have at least one sour on tap, if not more. The staff if super friendly and helpful. Oh, and there’s a patio in the back. Need I say more?

Went here on a Friday nigth. Front bar was packed, back bar was very open and roomy. I sat by the open window overlooking the street and watching traffic & people which was quite nice. Tap list and bottle list both pretty good and with rotation, I think it would be a great local hangout. I just thought prices were very high and it’s a very busy joint. Parking is pretty easy though once work hours are over.

Wonderful place and very interesting tap selection. Prices are quite high for some beers but it is worth of it. Just amazing atmosphere on Sunday night. One of the best bars I have been.

Agradable lugar en Oakland, aun que un tanto sólo. A pesar de no ser el lugar con la mayor cantidad de cervezas, es suficiente, la comida es agradable y el servicio muy bueno!

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.

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.
