Visited the barrel room on a Friday early afternoon on a nice day. A little hard to find as gps gets you close, but not quite there as you can’t see it. But there is a sign off the last turn in for Drakes and a couple of other businesses and it says in smaller print, ’behind wal mart’. We then drove around the back to see it. Industrial area, air traffic over head, functioning facility with a ramp/patio with outdoor seating and a large roll up door that opens up to more seating, a decent number of mixed barrels stacked 4-5 racks high and a nice long stand up bar with many taps and a chalkboard listing beers, some description and pricing. Sample, full pours, growlers and bottles to go. Fair pricing and some great one off draft only offerings. Only got to try 4 beer samples and wish I could had tried some more. Worth a stop for sure.

The bar is located in their barrel room and is no-frills, along with some patio seating out front that gets plenty of sun. The bartenders have tried pretty much everything on tap and can make great recommendations from a great, wide selection.

Been here a number of times over the years, at both the brewery and the new barrel house tasting room. The grand tasting for RBSG 2009 was also here.

The brewery side is only open on Fridays for their open house. Its been a few years so I dont know if they still do it this way but it used to be that you paid $10 or $15 and got a glass and 3 or 4 drink coupons. Full pours only, no samples. They also have a BBQ going and sometimes some music as well.

The barrel room has seating, bottles to go, does samples as well as full glasses, and sells growlers too. There are always at least a half dozen barrel offerings on tap as well as a half dozen regular beers on tap. No food served but you can bring food in or have it delivered.

Prices are reasonable, service is pretty good, nice place to stop and have a beer or a couple ticks. About a mile walk from the BART station in San Leandro if you want burn off some calories. Otherwise there is plenty of parking at the Walmart and Home Depot next door.

Pretty cool place with a great number of taps, basically an open warehouse door inviting you to come inside or side at one of the few picnic tables. Nominally three barrel aged beers on tap, but two were out when we were there. Otherwise, this is what a tasting room SHOULD look like at a small microbrewery in my opinion. As for food - they supposedly have trucks sometimes, but I hope you like pretzels, or else grab something at the Togo’s down the way.

Really cool place. The bar has a handful of seats as well as a smattering of tables around the rest of the space. Patio seating outside as well. Tons of beers on tap, including lots of special barrel aged stuff. Prices are pretty good, they do flights/tasters of everything, too. Can be a bit difficult to locate if you’ve never been here before. Just keep driving past the WalMart into the warehouse area in the back.

Terminus  (367) St. Louis, Missouri | July 3, 2012
First off, this location will not be correct in your GPS-the brewery is located adjacent to a Wal-mart. you have to drive through the Wal-mart parking lot (which trust me, was a challenge) to get to the brewery. your typical brewery in a warehouse setting. everybody seemed to be having a good time however, i was alone and kind of felt out of place somewhat. with that said, beer was very solid-had a couple samples and they were tasty. the crowd seemed a bit snooty and up-ity if you ask me. worth a stop if your in the east bay area.

The location is kinda weird; it’s hidden behind the Wal-Mart. But once you get inside, it is very comfortable, and the service is great. The beer is awesome, but $5 per glass seems rather steep for my wages. Overall, I had a great time, and I would come here more often if I had more money.

I finally made it here after year after year of missing the 1st Friday off the month fun and then just two days ago (it was Feb15) showing up when the website claimed they were open only to be turned around by the staff stating they were closed. WTF! Please keep web content regarding hours up to date as some of us come from a very long way away to visit. But yes, I did finally make it to this big open warehouse space with way more open floor space than seating. I was able to try several amazing offerings and the IIIPA is dynamite >>>> Younger and I love Younger. The staff was friendly and professional even when being repeatable badgered by customers scheming to get IIIPA growlers (so they can sell on ebay no doubt, what dirt bags). Kudos to the staff for keeping cool and professional and not giving into the pressure.

It is in an industrial warehouse where they store their barrel aging beers. A nice long bar with about 25 taps. Great service with some great beer.

Brewery is tucked behind the WalMart and Home Depot on Davis Street. Ambience is very warehouse-y but is made up for by everything else about the place. Very casual and friendly people both behind and in front of the bar. Its obviously the best place to go for Drakes beers offering the full range of things they produce including a selection of their barrel-aged specials which never make it to bottling. I wish there was more food on offer (just bar snacks during the week, occasional bbq on weekends.) Overall pretty lovely.
