This place is usually pretty busy. They seem to have a following that outdoes the quality, selection, and environment. I think they might be the only beer bar with this many taps and selections of to-go bottles in the East Bay area. The service is usually pretty good. That snotty, know-it-all, impatient quality often found in the service in Bohemian places like Beer Rev was very noticeably absent. This was a huge plus. Prices are fairly reasonable. Only one bathroom. And it is a unisex. It's a tight fit inside the bar. The only reason I'd give it an above average on environment is that it has outdoor seating. Of course, in that part of Oakland, there's not a lot to look at out there. They close early and sometimes, whenever they choose. They have a huge variety of tap beers that get rotated regularly. They offer several different options of to-go bottles, but the bottle beers aren't anything impressive. Some are obscure, but none that are remarkably sought after. Pliny the Elder seems to sell out pretty quickly.

Pliney commonly available by the bottle, including to-go (limit 2/per, "unlimited" in-house)

This was a positive surprise spot for us on our San Francisco-Oakland visit. It has inside-outside seating, but really is your typical dive craft beer bar.

The bartenders were all nice, relaxed, and seemed to want to cater to regulars as well as new people. The majority of the taps are hyper-local with some breweries having 6 or 8 different beers represented. They also have several beer coolers that you can buy from and open on premise. The selection in the coolers was great, but no whales if you that is what you are in search of at a bar.

The only negative for me was that it closes at 11pm on a Saturday night. I was disappointed, but it was only because I was enjoying my time there.

This is a fantastic spot in Oakland. I was in town for work, and luckily my hotel was only a few blocks away.

First, the selection - about 50 beers on tap, all local/regional. I only saw one thing I can get in Atlanta (Russian River Damnation). The rest were mostly bay area beers from small and small-ish breweries, with a wide selection ranging from a coffee porter to a session IPA to a sour saison. In addition, there are several coolers of bottles that can be taken out or consumed in the bar. An out-of-towner couldn't ask for anything more.

The place itself is solid. Nice little patio out front, and a small number of seats inside, plus a few spots at the bar. Hops on the ceiling; tons of beer and brewery stickers.

Service was good. Bartenders were friendly and offered up suggestions.

Definitely a place to stop if you're in Oakland, or even in the bay area in general.
