I've been going here for years, since I was an undergrad at Berkeley. This is actually where I first loved a beer. It deserves a review.

The location is ideal; it's right next to the Downtown Berkeley BART stop, with an exit right in front of the bar. There is an indoor seating area as well as a beautiful beer garden out back. On a sunny summer day, I opt for the outdoor space. It's wonderful. The crowd ranges from families to cyclists to yuppies. Always a pleasant atmosphere.

I don't know what "quality" means in the context of BeerFly reviews. The house beers aren't that great, but they have 15 or so guest taps at any given time, including stuff from Moonlight, Port, Drake's (which is part of the same company), Stone, North Coast... The lines are well maintained and the selection rotates quickly. Can't complain.

Even the food is great. I love the sandwiches the most, but I'm not opposed to the brick-fired pizzas. Their Persephone (portobello mushroom sandwich) is top-notch. I frequently find myself craving it even when I'm not at the bar. I just wish it had some avocado slices in it. But anyway, for a beer place, the food is exceptional.

Very fair prices given the quality of the food. The service is fast and attentive; I never have to wait for a beer. and the waitstaff is friendly. They generally don't know much about the beer beyond what style it is, which is really all I care about.

I like to go here almost every weekend in Berkeley. I recommend it highly.

Stopped in for dinner with a friend.
Huge beautiful multi-level patio out back. It's seat yourself, but after a few minutes of standing around we were able to find a seat. Comfy, communal, college vibe. Nice fountain and trellises.

Beer selection is great. I had the IPA and it was very good.

My pizza was solid.

Service was fine.

Definitely worth a stop if you're in the East Bay. Easy walk from BART.
