I saw the hype, I read some review, I had to check it out. I live in the south bay, so coming to Oakland I either go the Trappist.
I love the Trappist and this place is just a few blocks away.
This place is not quite, and has a vibe. Punk rock music playing on the stereo and a very eclectic tap and bottle selection.
I mean they have a really big bottle selection so the cool thing is come in, have a draft and chill, pick out a bottle or 3 to take home. Wide variety of micros, Belgium's and the like.
the staff is knowledgeable about the beer they serve and the atmosphere is laid back. If you don't like punk rock music, it is not too loud so you can talk over it and still have a good time.
If I was asked to pick this or the Trappist, I would leave the room though. Both are different, both are great and both will see me when I trek to Oakland to drink quality beers. They are well within walking distance to BART so you can be responsible!

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.
