Proper cool place IF youíre in the neighbourhood. Very dive bar feel, but the in house beer is actually very good especially their IPA. Bartender was even wearing a tie but by the end of it he was pissed with the tie off... What a great place, good fun great feel inside the place nice wooden bar.
Cool little brewpub in Berkeley right near Cal. The place is old/OG, and you get that feeling when youíre in there. Everything is wood, pretty much. Service is great, food is great, though the beers can be hit or miss. They have a tons of stuff on tap which is awesome, though only a handful really rotate much.
Been here a few times. A small bar, not a lot of seating. I didnít eat, so canít comment on the food. The beer is good. The service was slow. Not too impressive of a place, but Iím sure Iíll be back anyways.
I get what this place is trying to be but itís just not successful. Wish they would change out their kegs more, switch up the menu... but nothing doing. If I was satisfied with drinking the same beers over and over again, Iím sure Iíd like it more (and its location is so convenient!). I guess with such a steady lineup, the staff doesnít really need to be so knowledgeable about beer...
Enjoyed this brewpub. I did not try any food, just the spectrum sampler. There was 12 beers to sample. Have not seen a selection this good exept at valley brew. All of the beers were really enjoyable. Good service, amd a decent ambiance made it a nice visit.
I was here a few weeks ago. Nice airy bar with hardwood floors, which is reminiscent of Big Time in Seattle. Tables on the right, bar on the left. They had about 10 house beers on and a couple guest beers on. Some nice and interesting choices. They also had Supplication on tap. Several hipsters working here, but they were knowledgeable and somewhat helpful. The food was forgettable pub faire, but good enough. Bathrooms were not the cleanest. Parking is a bitch, and I got a parking ticket. My bar tab started at 12:55pm and I received a ticket at 1:58pm. As I was heading out to my car to feed the meter again (at 2:00pm) , the meter maid was pulling away. Assholes.
Nice little place in Berkeley. Usually only end up here during SF beer week as they normally host a sour beer night and a barrel aged night. During these events the selection is fantastic! All the other times you are limited to their brews, which are solid. I heard a rumor that someone owns this, Jupiter (nearby beer garden) and Drakes brewing. There seems to be some connection to Drakes as they have ísingle barrelí batches of fruit-sour beers during events. Would like to see Drakes on tap here if so.
Stopped in after going to Jupiter for lunch. Nice area with a saloon like feel. Friendly and very knowledgeable bar tender. Good and interesting beers with plenty of info for the beer geeks. Didnít try the food. 1 guest beer tap and a couple guest cider taps. 15 or 16 taps overall. Beer was good overall. Started talking to the couple next to me. Turns out it was the head brewer of Oakshire and his wife on vacation. We ended up chatting with the manager and the assistant brewer (soon to be head brewer), and got a tour of the small brewing facility (which is absolutely ancient). A great time was had, and Iíd love to go back.
A nice, but completely average brew pub. Brew their own beers, none if which have ever got me very excited. If other people weíre going there, I wouldnít fight them but it wouldnít ge my choice. An alright place to watch a game, if you get one of the three or four hoof tables for doing so, even though they donít play the volume loud enough.
