great selection, 40 plus taps, loaded with Firestone Walker, Lost Abbey & Deschutes. Very busy, tons of bottles. Very strange set up. Never seen a bar with so much room for the bartenders to move. Tight fit in here. I guess its a beer beer/store. 1030 last call on a Saturday threw me for a loop
I could not beleive that this was a beer store - so many taps that I lost count, plus endless bottles jam packed for SF beer week when we were there, for a Lost Abbey and Firestone Walker event. Great crowd, amazing vibe. Best beer store I have ever visited.
I love Beer Revolution. The ambiance isn’t great and the punk rock can be a bit much at times. The selection is awesome with a ton of great stuff on tap and a good bottle selection, which are available for take away purchase as well. The service can be a mixed bag. Rebecca is great (I give her a 10); Fraggle is a dick. Parking sucks! It’s best to take the train and walk the 10 or so blocks to get there.
I have come here a few times. This place has a great patio for beer and sunshine, but inside is a bit divey and hard to maneuver if there is any kind of crowd. Service is usually good and knowledgeable. Beer selection is outstanding with 40+ taps and coolers full of bottle beer (unfortunately rather randomly assorted). Beer prices are reasonable for the selection. Overall a great place to p/u beer and sample a large variety, I have tried to come on a brewer event night and the crowd was crazy in the small space but otherwise have had some good times here.
Small friendly place. reat service with knowledgeable help. he selection is great with a good number of taps and a great bottle selection. Prices are decent. Well worth checking out if you’re in Oakland!
First things first: ambiance-wise, this place is a hole. Uncomfortable, packed with a rather loud crowd, seating sketchy, not very nice smelling either. The patio was decent, but it was very hard to maneuver. Sometimes took a long time to get beers, though they seemed to know what the beers were about. Great selection: lots of quality beers in bottle and keg, and a few hard to find beers as well. I would definitely go back, though it’s not the kind of place I would want to hang out in for long.
One of the best beer bars around. Amazing selection of beers on tap that are constantly changing. They have all the rare stuff you don’t see other places. Service is great, ask a question about beer and get an honest answer. Decent prices, from 5 to 10 dollars depending on the beer. They also have a few cooler doors for bottled beer that you can either drink there or take to go. Didn’t eat while I was there but they had a BBQ going that smelled great. Overall no one can match their selection of rare beers, this is my new Sunday spot.
Wow, just found a top 5 tickers bar in the world, come to this place... huge outdoor patio with a lot of seating inside, 6-8 huge coolers line the back wall with beers for you browse and take to the bar to open, 47 taps... the selection is unreal, at least 100 bottles of great stuff, then 47 drafts of rare local micro’s, I probably had only heard or had tried about 15 of the beers, the best part is that usually locals beers on draft are terrible, these were all outstanding... my only complaint is that the bartender I talked to didn’t know a ton about beer so I pretty much just had to choose what I wanted to drink... Go here
If Beer Revolution served food, it would be my idea of Beer Heaven! There are few better places to wind down from the work day than the patio at the Revolution. Great selection, regularly bringing in brews that I’ve rarely seen elsewhere. Great supporters of local brewers, too!
Minor faults - too bright, minimal seating...however this is due to the numerous dark fridges of amazing beer. Great tap selection, then make your own 6-pack to take with. Great prices. I would have to say that this is not a place where I would hang out if they didn’t have amazing beer so there has to be some points off for that.
Really this is almost as good as it could possibly get here in the Bay Area for craft beer. Prices are average, service is only slightly below average (there’s variation and some good service here but...) and the layout can make it difficult to get a beer sometimes but where it really counts, Beer Revolution excels.
It’s got a deck and it’s a great peaceful oasis to kick it with some buds, have some great suds and not be bothered by crowds (usually), staff trying to turn over a bar stool or angry riff-raff. The selection is also superb.
