I literally walked out of the BART station and saw this across the street, I walked in and grabbed a seat at the bar and ordered a pizza as I was very hungry after a long morning, looked up at the board and saw a variety of guest brews and lots of house brews, I immediately ordered a Drake's Denogginizer, I ended up having their 18 Barrel IPA as well, then Quasar and a Moonlight Lunatic Lager when I went back, food was good and not that expensive at eight or nine dollars, their two IPAs I tried were pretty good as well, the place was really modern and close to the UC campus, nice garden in the back and located in a cool area, place was super clean, the upstairs section was neat and would be a fun place to go hang out with a group of friends, they had about two dozen taps total and they all seemed to be good choices, they had impressive guest taps from E.J. Phair, Moonlight, Deschutes, Speakeasy, and others, bartender was cool and kept asking me if I wanted to sample anything else, this is a place I look forward to going back to next time I am in the bay area, recommended

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.

A: nice. Relaxed. The pub looked nice. Clean. We sat outside. Nice pergola outside covered in vine.

Q: beer is good. Wood-fired pizza is tasty. Rest of Food looks good.

S: prompt, informative, friendly.

Selection: great selection of beer styles. Plus a fine selection of visiting taps.

F: good pizza.

V: decent price for food. Beer is a bit on the high side. But not bad.
