Tiny little spot, about the width of an alley. Some amazing beers on tap with an amazing bottle selection (though the bottle prices are a bit too high). Proper glassware to the letter. Really nice at night when they open up the back to the "secret bar" which is some prohibition leftover...gives some more, needed, space and another bar with six beers on tap.

Always an awesome and well-thought out selection of beers. The owners built themselves a very beautiful space. Service and ambiance are highly variable depending on the day. New Patio is nice and food is well paired with beers.
Prices seem a little high on some items but otherwise this place is great.

Stopped by on a weekend. Very nice, upscale interior. Very professional acting bar tender who poured the beers with great ceremony. Didnít seem very chatty about the beers, but seemed to know hist stuff pretty well. Tap list was great, but was a bit annoying as half of the list is from the outside bar which is only open part of the day. Didnít try the food, but it sounded good. Very good tap list of mostly imports, with a few other very nice local beers. Some things I have not seen on tap before. Prices were a bit high. The bottle list looked stellar as well. Iíd probably go back.

Wont say much new. Except for the sausages, the food was great. The beer line-up was out of this world - both for import and local beers. Good vibe. Can get crowded it seems. If you want uber rare this is the place to go. Must visit in the Bay area.

Nice place, impressive beer card, especially on tap, would like more American beer on bottles.
The staff need a lot about the beers, and was very helpful!

Let me start with the bad, of which there is very little.
Itís a little pretentious. Sometimes hard to get a seat or find a place to chill while waiting for a seat. Its not the best value around. Itís just a little too far from my house to walk.
Now the good, the Trappist is freaking awesome in terms of beer and decor and vibe.
I love the glassware and adore the staff.
I like the food the menu and the set up a lot.
Along with beer revolution and the tornado across the bridge, it is in the wholly trinity of bay area beer bars.

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

service can be a bit snotty and can be pricey, but worth going for the selection.
a bit scary side surroundings.

This place is great, if sneaky expensive. If you like this place and ever find yourself in Worcester, MA (or vice versa, I supposse) go check out the surprising Armsby Abbey, which actually does the Belgian-Beer-meets-slow-food-California thing better.
