Slipped in here the other day to check it out as I'm new to the area, and I must say, I was pleasantly surprised. The bottle selection behind the glass is pretty nice, especially for local stuff. The Belgian selection could use a bit of improvement but still pretty solid. Beer Revolution does a great job with its tap selection. Great selection, and the spot continually circulates its kegs. On top of that, the gal behind the bar said they were thinking of adding even more tap lines. The folks here definitely leave you to your own devices when you are shopping for a bottle, but they are more than willing to give recommendations or help you out in any other way if you need it. Solid seating inside along with great patio seating outside. According to the event calendar, they do a pretty solid job of getting brewers in the location and holding special tastings. The prices here are very reasonable for both draft and bottle products.

All-in-all, definitely worth a visit.

Another really awesome Oakland/EastBay spot - the last stop on a nice little tour of Drakes->Rare Barrel -> Trappist -> Dinner -> Beer Revolution

It was prime time on Saturday night so perusing bottles wasn't very feasible - tap list was overwhelming, perhaps just due to the kaleidoscope of color involved and the large number of drinks already taken down.

Taplist seemed VERY california heavy, which was awesome - lots of stuff I really dont know a whole lot about.

The room had a sweet vibe and the energy was definitely present. This place was really awesome.

I went here during beer week and it was pretty crowded, but not annoyingly so. They had a pretty large selection of beers, but it was mainly from only 3 breweries. Fortunately, they said that they change out their selection every week, which is a plus. I had a really awesome Lagunitas Fusion 20, with a really hoppy but relatively smooth taste and an ABV of 9.5%. I think its only a limited time brew which makes me sad, but I was glad to try it.

The atmosphere wasn't really that impressive, but it wasn't bad. A lot of beer stickers all over the place and a nice little patio out front. This place is pretty small so there wasn't a lot of seating available. One really nice thing was that the bartenders were really welcoming and helpful. They couldn't tell you a lot about all of the beers because there are so many and they are always changing, but they did their best. I would definitely go back, but it's not a place I would want to hang out all night.

Stopped in here yesterday on my way to another event in the area. Kind of has the dive bar feel but it is clearly all about the beer, reminds me of the old version of Shady McGrady's back home. Atmosphere was good. Lots of people sitting outside and a bit less inside. Service was great. Two guys behind the bar helping people choose their beers and explaining them well. Quality was pretty good. All of my beers were served in the correct glasses but the bar overall could use a bit of TLC to smooth out the rough edges. Selection was easily the best part. They had a ton of beer on-tap, even after finding out the entire middle board wasn't available for a few hours. They kept having to explain that to every person who came in, simple fix would be to put a sign on that board...whatever. Lots of bottles in the coolers on the opposite side of the bar, plenty of quality options in there. All of the drafts were $6 which was awesome because I have seen a few of them for much higher at other bars in the area. Overall a really cool spot.
