An absolute must when in Oakland! Food menu was minimal but the Tuna Melt was incredible. Beer list is relatively short but extremely "European" with a Belgian preference. Bottles ate available for off premise consumption. Would come back again in a heartbeat!

A great place I frequented often when I lived in Oakland. A recent visit tells me it’s only getting better, with more seating and a wider range of styles (mainly Belgian types). A knowledgeable staff and a few nice menu items make it one of my favorite beer bars in the Bay Area.

This might not be a fair rating as caught this place during a Shelton Brothers night during the Craft Brewers Conference and the place was very crowded, but did have Fou Foune on tap.

Agreable, assez belle selection, belle ambiance, beau service de labiere mais sevice un peu lent et peible en raison du manque de largeur de la salle et des deux bars

The bar for people looking for more rare Belgians. They have about 20 taps filled with a bunch of rare Belgians and a few Stouts and IPA’s. Also have a very impressive list of bottled beers available for there or to go. Service was excellent, bartenders were knowledgeable and honest. Had a good list of available food however I did not eat. Prices were a little bit high, but worth every drop. Overall THE place to go for a unique list of Belgian beers. Often start here for a couple beers and walk to Beer Revolution down the street to finish the night.

While in SF take the BART to Oakland and check out this gem... new classy decor with 2 bars, about 10 drafts at each, an awesome patio that you have to head out too... the selection was great, lots of local new ticks and all super solid beer, go here

Tiny little spot, about the width of an alley. Some amazing beers on tap with an amazing bottle selection (though the bottle prices are a bit too high). Proper glassware to the letter. Really nice at night when they open up the back to the "secret bar" which is some prohibition leftover...gives some more, needed, space and another bar with six beers on tap.

Always an awesome and well-thought out selection of beers. The owners built themselves a very beautiful space. Service and ambiance are highly variable depending on the day. New Patio is nice and food is well paired with beers. Prices seem a little high on some items but otherwise this place is great.
