A small vegan cafe located in downtown San Jose. They have ready made vegan food in a case that they heat up when the order is placed. It was pretty good, but I'm not sure I would rush back here for the food. The taps were outstanding. They have 11 taps, when I stopped in they had:

-Ballast Point Sculpin
-Cuvée Van De Keizer
-Duchesse De Bourgogne
-DFH Palo Santo Marron
-Stone Cali-Belgique
-Lost Abbey Jugement Day
-Nectar Hemp Ale
-Lagunitas Gnarleywine
-Firestone Walker Solace
-Tripel Karmeliet

Most was served in the correct glassware. In the craft beer wasteland that is the Silicon Valley, this place has one of the better selections.

A true hidden gem. Solid beer selection, solid food selection, solid people working the bar. What more can you ask for? Maybe a little more room as it is smaller than expected for the crowds they can draw, but with a tap list like theirs, it's worth it!

Friendly staff who do know some stuff about beer, they'll be glad to chat it up with you about whatever.
I've never had their food, but tons of people go in and out buying it and they all love it.
The beer selection here is very nice, they'll have whatever you're craving and you'll probably want to buy a bottle to take home also.

I stopped in to pick up two bottles of Almanac FtB, and stayed for dinner.

The place is tiny inside, with some outdoor seating in front. Their beer selection was impressive. Besides what's on tap, they have a well-stocked variety of bottles.

I'm not a vegan, and you don't have to be to enjoy the food here. I had the stuffed bell pepper and the gluten-free mashed potatoes. Each came with their own sauce, and they were delicious.

The food is in a glass display and the server/bartender will heat your selection and bring it to your table.

I had a very pleasant weeknight dinner, but I imagine it gets crowded on weekends.
