Stopped by over the weekend with bulletrain76, service was great, selection was fantastic. Hard to believe it is downtown Oakland! seems more like a Berkley or North Oakland type of place. Great glassware, coasters, etc... If in Bay Area, it is a must go to kinda place.

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.

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!
