A recent trip to the Bay Area allowed me the opportunity to check out Beer Revolution. I actually meet up with another BA here and was glad he recommended it. Really cool vibe inside. A smaller space, but used well. Coolers lined the walls with beers from all over. Great bottle selection. The tap selection was pretty unique, as well. I got to try Uncommon Siamese Sour and Moonlight Bombay by Boat. After picking up a bottle, I had to be on my way, but would have loved to spend more time here. Maybe next time I'll get to enjoy a few beers on the patio out front.

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.

Beer Rev is amazing! Definitely one of the best places in the Bay for beer, if not the best. With 48 amazing beers on tap, be prepared to spend time staring at the chalkboards to decide what you're gonna get. The selection is what sets this place apart, as you'll find beers on tap and in bottles here that you just can't get at other bars. They have appropriate glassware for the beers they serve, and it's actually a really good deal too! I mean a 12oz bottle of Older Viscosity can go for sale for $15-20 but at Beer Rev I've had a 10oz glass for $7!
Don't let complaints about the atmosphere stop you because it's part of what makes this place special. Besides, you're coming here for the beer, right? There's dried hop vines on the ceiling and you can spend hours looking at all the awesome decorations on the wall. There's tons of old bottles & cans lining the walls and the tables are barrels with bottle caps embedded on the top. Even the bathroom has a kickass mural painted in it. The outside patio is really great too if the weather is permitting.
There's ample bike parking available and the bar is within walking distance from 12th st BART (and there's the free broadway shuttle). The people here are super chill, and the bar staff have always been helpful with recommending beers. No food here, but you can get some tasty vegan eats at Souley Vegan or the pub next door (which also has an awesome selection). They close early for a bar so keep that in mind.
