Stopped in here for the Sante Adairius event the other night. I got there a little early and I was lucky when another guy had to leave so I was able to snag his seat at the bar. Nice seating area in the front along with all the bottles to go, more on those later. Small bar area toward the back, apparently they have an upstairs area as well but I never saw it. Service was great, got slower once the event started but that was expected. Quality was quite high. Lots of high end materials used in the space and the beers were all served in the correct glasses. Selection was stellar even without the event going on. They still had a Cantillon on from a previous event so I got one of those to start and then tried three of the Sante beers, all of which were incredible. Bottle selection was great as well. Some pretty rare Crooked Staves, limited Belgian beers and others. No food this time but it looked pretty sparse, mainly just small dishes to pick at. Prices were a little on the high side on some of the beers I looked at. Overall a really solid beer bar, I wish I could come here more often.

I went here knowing Fou Foune and St Lamvinus would be on tap when they opened. There were probably 10 other people who were as dedicated to the cause, which made for a good group of people. There are about 8 seats at the bar, 12 beers on tap, and shelves full of Belgian style beers. The tap list was excellent considering there were 2 Cantillons, but there was a good mix of local beers (Faction, Almanac) and Belgians making up the rest of it. The bottle selection was as good as I have ever seen for Belgian beers. There were a few bottles of Hommage and Sante Adairius that went immediately, and then some bottles of Cantillon showed up a few hours into the day. There was no food that looked substantial enough, but the sandwich place next door delivers (you still have to place your order in person). There are small and expensive plates available at the bar, like sausage, cheese, bread. Overall this was a great place and is really easy to get to off of BART (Rockridge). I'll definitely make another visit

Classy and swank, this is the little sister to downtown Oakland’s much loved Trappist. Similar in spirit if not in feel--this space seems more constricted (much like the Trappist was originally)—as it’s a single room, small-ish bar space, light-ish bar bites… and of course delicious beer. Nine handles, 99 bottles, prices are on par for the quality and service is above excellent. Educational classes (tastings) are held upstairs on a regular basis.
