Dropped by The Trappist yesterday, and I sure am glad we decided to add this place to our list. First off, the bar setup is amazing. It is as close to what I can imagine drinking a beer in Belgium would be like. A very classy array of wood and stainless steel, a glass for every Belgian beer you can imagine, and a bottle list to impress all. Our visit was brief, but it was awesome to sit at (the air conditioned) bar and enjoy a nice glass of Cantillon Iris 2007 (draft). We can in hunting for a few bottles, too, but unfortunately left without what we were looking for. This is a excellent place to drink, especially if Belgian beer is your forte. Don't miss it.

Went with three friends.
Great place to get a beer. The atmosphere is good, nothing special, but it's a nice neighborhood-ey joint. Narrow space, nice bar, not much seating otherwise unless you go out back.
Great selection. Belgian-focused, but quite a few Belgian-style and sour beers from around the country. Happy to see Jolly Pumpkin. Bartender was great, giving plenty of suggestions and tasters.
Didn't try the food.
This and beer revolution are the two complementary spots to visit in Oakland.
