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.

I stopped by while in the bay area on business. The selection of bottles to purchase and take home is limited with several small coolers arranged in an disorderly way. The tap list is extensive but seems to be so local, that I had a hard time recognizing anything. So I asked for a recommendation and got a decent CA IPA. It's got a great atmosphere filled with serious local beer fans. There's also a deck out front if you want to enjoy the sunshine. It's well worth a stop.
