Kind of under the radar beer spot in Berkeley. Tap list is good, not great, but actually is pretty darn good for the area (downtown Berkeley) and considering what else is in the area. 5 or so taps stay the same and the other 3 rotate somewhat. Always 2-3 good IPAs on tap, generally pretty fresh. Great happy hour, never had a problem with the beer list. Always something tasty to enjoy.

Service is good, nice owner and the bartenders work often and are friendly. Food is good, only had one or two items but enjoyed them. Good, not great, vegan options, but there nonetheless.

Bottle list is nice, somewhat eclectic. A lot of the Belgian brews you might find in a lot of places but some nice American bombers that are reasonably priced as well. Pleasantly surprised by this, and nothing like this really exists anywhere else downtown (extensive good bomber bottle list).

Atmosphere is different than other area bars, it does have sort of a lounge feel to it. Bar is nice, somewhat long with numerous tables (some communal) on the other side of the place. Lighting is subdued, two TVs that show games and they have music sometimes in the evening.

Would recommend this place if you're in the area, no need to go way out of your way, but price wise, it's great and selection is as good as you'd find in most downtown Berkeley bars.
