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.

The ambiance and service here is second to none. Very classy with friendly bartenders. The selection is fantastic too. The only other place in the bay area that even comes close to matching their Belgian selection is Toronado. Itís easily accessible via public transit. What more could you ask for? My only complaint is that they donít open until 4 pm.

The Trappist is as good as it gets. I felt like I was in a confessional in a Belgian cathedral with attendant monks sliding delicious ales under the door.

In an odd part of town. Zacharyís pizza place wasnít too far from here, and I actually expected this place to be on that side of town. I am not an Oakland resident, so I donít have any valid/constructive way of giving any type of opinion on location. Plenty of parking across the street. My brother and I got there as soon as it opened. Fairly nice tap selection. The ambiance was perfect. The place is fairly slender. I didnít really venture off into the back, other than to take a piss, but from what I can tell the place was rather small. The bartender was FAST, and as soon as I finished my beer I was asked what I wanted next. Bar heavily favors Belgians (hence the fíin name), but given that, there were some nice beers on tap that werenít Belgian beers. Nice wood paneling on the insider with a fancy bar area. Regulars seemed like they didnít care too much about being beer geeks, which was cool (I call them regulars because the bartender was fairly familiar with them). Overall, great experience, and Oakland was a much nicer town than I expected (I only saw a little bit of it).
