The beers that are expensive deserve to be pricey, but there are always some non-Belgians at a very decent price, especially by Bay Area standards. The best deal is at lunch, when you can add the "Beer of the Day" for $2.00 with a sandwich. That turned out to be a super Pilsener I've never had, the Moonlight Reality Czeck. And the food is simply great. We had a grilled tuna melt on excellent bread plus a pear, farro, and greens salad with loads of blue cheese.

Interesting pub on the edge of Chinatown in Oakland, just off Broadway. Near the downtown BART station, and a pleasant walk from both Amtrak and the ferry from San Francisco. Makes a nice outing if you come over from the city and stop at Beer Revolution to stock up on some oddities.

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.
