3.95/5  rDev -2.7%

The atmosphere is kind of commercial with the restrooms (clean) outside, away from the establishment across a hallway.. The bar only had about four stools.

The atmoshpere is business like, all of the bartenders had the same type of shirts, some what like a pizza parlor. There are different areas for dining that includes tables (wood) and chairs around the bar, upstairs, and a large patio area where there is live entertainment (Bluegrass today).

Mostly brass tap nozzles, some stainless steel, and some shinier than others. The pizza kitchen (hand made) is in the open with a fire oven. Some of their beers are brewed on the premises (did not see the equipment, supposedly in a shed out back) and some are brewed in San Leandro (maybe at Drakes).

Service is business like, friendly, and befriend your bartender.

Beer selection is ok for their own beers and even with a nice guest selection although no cask option. Possible notable is their Double IPA and their definite notables are the Mai Bock and Hefeweizen (does not need lemon but they will taint it if one does not say something).

Their food is ok and the Bartenders will give good suggestions and substitute items for one's liking.

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.
