Finally made it to the Beer Revolution. When I pulled up to the place I found a porch with ample seating, and plenty people seeming to enjoy their after work hours. Inside was a dimly lit, wood theme room. To one side was the bar and the other, several fridges carrying quite the variety of beers. The tap selection was a plethora of mostly California beers, something I've been waiting for, for a while. Most of the beers were $5, but the selection was mostly beers I hadn't seen on tap, or breweries I hadn't seen, ever. The lady pouring was super friendly and informative. There were two other guys doing dishes and other handy work, but the beer lady was handling the crowd just fine. They had pretty good music, for my liking anyway: mostly punk. The vibe was very 'Oakland'. This place is like City Beer on steroids. And they have a great vegan soul food place down the block you and order from over the phone and they'll deliver! I've got one more reason to make it across the bridge. (991 characters)

One of the best places to grab a beer in the entire bay area.
On the short list of places you should check out if you are visiting the east bay

Vibe: Small and not a whole lot of seating. Not a looker, per se. Lots of great people there though. The hops growing outside and hanging on the ceiling are a nice touch [3.75]
Quality: Seems like the taps are always rotating. Fresh IPAs abound. Never an issue with a bad pour or stale beer. The pricing is pretty fair as well (most beers $6-7, and smaller pours on special releases). [5]
Service: This is a bit variable. I've had some incredible service here, and some terrible. For the most part it has been improving though. Everyone knows their beer [3.5]
Selection: 99% of the time I am really pleased here. Always something new or just an incredibly diverse selection of beers on tap. And don't forget about the bottles! There are some gems in there, and they are affordably priced to drink there ($1 corkage) or to go. [5.0] (977 characters)
