  • Jennifer N.Can be a bit loud, a real European pub feel, for better or worse.

    55555 by Jennifer N.


  • Alan H.Gotta get here before 11pm for the kitchen to be open! The grilled cheese with apple and Brussels sprouts is not to be missed!

    55555 by Alan H.

  • Jackie L.The pork rinds here are a good accompaniment to any beer.

    55555 by Jackie L.


  • Koll TNice selection but I stopped going due to their Euro-pours. Every beer comes w/ 1"+ of foam, yet you're paying a premium for all 8-10 oz.

    55555 by Koll T


  • Amanda MorelandI love the beer selection at this place. Can get a bit crowded.

    55555 by Amanda Moreland


  • Christian B.Always a solid beer list, always a little pricy. So it goes with outstanding imports. Solid food menu and very BARTable.

    55555 by Christian B.


  • Alan H.The beer menu is damn near hard to beat... and that's before you move from the draft list to bottles! Great music, great guests, outstanding barkeeps

    55555 by Alan H.


  • Adrian PhillipsExtensive selection of Belgian beers on tap. Back bar has a different selection than the front bar. The deviled eggs, picked and braised beef sandwich are great stomach fillers.

    55555 by Adrian Phillips


  • John S.Tremendous selection of belgian & sours. Snacks (charcuterie, etc) most days. Often do BBQ, dogs, etc on Saturday afternoons.

    55555 by John S.


  • Brandon Land👌 So good

    55555 by Brandon Land


  • Brian JOften busy and can be a bit loud, but an excellent selection of beers and a neat rustic vibe.

    55555 by Brian J


  • Chuck RoslofSmaller-than-usual pours allow for easier sampling of lots of beers.

    55555 by Chuck Roslof


  • nils j.The outdoor space is really pleasant on a warm evening.

    55555 by nils j.

    55555 by Marah Laurie


  • Tim H.Amazing beer list! And delicious tacos on the patio on Tuesdays.

    55555 by Tim H.


  • Erik M.Great selection. Can get really crowded and they know enough not to rush good beer, so if you're looking for a relaxed pint you might try another spot nearby.

    55555 by Erik M.


  • Sergey T.Great Belgians.

    55555 by Sergey T.


  • Daniel K.Sours of course!

    55555 by Daniel K.


  • César SLamb meatballs were killers.

    55555 by César S


  • John C.If there is a king and castle for craft beers, The Trappist would hold this position. Beer is taken seriously here and it is some of the best anywhere. Try the small batches from independent Brewers.

    55555 by John C.


  • Nick F.Great variety of beer

    55555 by Nick F.


  • Patrick F.My go-to in Oakland. There's a front bar and back bar. The beers I've tried are all phenomenal. Also, try a sour beer, you won't be disappointed.

    55555 by Patrick F.

    55555 by Claire H.


  • John L.Great beer choices on tap with decent variety, a bit dim indoors, so I recommend the patio.

    55555 by John L.


  • Maddie Mae R.Knowledgable bartenders mean you need never order for yourself.

    55555 by Maddie Mae R.

    55555 by Jennifer F.

    33333 by Brandon V.


  • BetsyMBlah blah beer blah blah. Let's talk about cheese instead. On a scale of 1 to 10, my love of cheese is insane. This place met all my cheese needs and definitely more.

    55555 by BetsyM
