A friend took me here and I'm glad she did. It's split into two small rooms, one barely more than a hall with a bar and a few tables, and the other slightly larger with more seating. There are technically 3 bars, one in each room, plus one has a little 2-3 tap corner with local beers. My friend explained that one bar had the domestics and the other imports, but it didn't seem to follow that pattern. I had a Drakes IPA as well as an Oakland Brewing CME IPA, both very nice. And it was nice to see that they had Duvel filtered, a favorite of mine. They had bottles on the wall from the 80's, this place must have been around a long time and is well worth the visit.

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.
