No one's reviewed this place in 3 years or so, so I thought I'd chime in. Beer selection has gotten much better here and they occasionally have some pretty interesting limited releases on tap. Atmosphere is pretty good, all things considered. Major bonus points for the nice back patio.

Staff is nice, though not always super knowledgeable about all the beers, but not something I need at a place like this. Selection is fairly diverse style wise, can definitely find something you'd want to drink on a normal day at Looney's.

They have stepped up their game beer wise and it is one of the better spots in downtown Berkeley to enjoy a good craft beer.

Just stopped by here to grab something to eat and found out that they had Chimay (white) on tap for five bucks. Last time I checked they still had it. There was also a good brew from Stone (I think their porter). For a place that is just a sports bar/BBQ, they have some pretty good brews on tap. Their food is pretty good. Mixed review of the staff--my server didn't know too much about the beers they had on tap and as a result didn't know they had Chimay. But the manager (I think) ended up bringing it out for free because of the mixup.
