    Turned into an East Bay Meet and Eat or some sort... The food was great and free and it was good to see so many people attend.

    Good times!

    Wow Joe, you got really lucky. I am glad you are o.k and sorry about your trip.
    I saw the video, it was a scary moment.I guess it's good you don't remember it. It's amazing what the brain does to protect us from trauma.
    I had a similar experience on 2008 on the Mines rd. (Mt. Hamilton) hitting black ice at 60mph and flying through the cattle fence into the 10ft deep creek. Wish i had a video of it cause i don't remember s##t.

    Yeah, that was a scary vid Joe. Glad you walked away from that one (after a fashion).

    It's on College, in Oakland, just north of Rockridge BART, and south of Claremont. Some heated tables outside, loud hubbub inside. Not the easiest place to fit a dozen people together, but they do have good beer on tap.

    Yeah, probably not too good due to access and space. Hard to beat Pacific Coast and Pyramid for those reasons.

    Address: 906 Washington St, Oakland, CA 94607
    Their current lineup looks yummy too.....

    Pacific Coast Gray Whale Ale

    Our house pale ale, medium body, amber, well balanced bitterness and sweetness.
    • Bronze medal winner at the 1991 Great American Beer Festival
    • 17 IBU
    • 5.5% ABV


    Pacific Coast Killer Whale Stout

    Our house dark, rich, roasty, smooth, and hoppy. 1990 Silver Medal winner, 1991 Honorable Mention at the GREAT AMERICAN BEER FESTIVAL Nitrogen infusion makes this the best Ever .


    Pacific Coast Leviathan Imperial Stout

    Black as Squid Ink! The Stout of Russian Czars! Brewed to withstand the long trip to Moscow from Great Britain. Black, full bodied and very warming. Silver Medal Winning Intense Ale at the 1992 and 1993 Great American Beer Festival.
    • 10% ABV



    Pacific Coast Columbus IPA

    This beer is an India Pale Ale! It is the first commercially brewed beer in the country using Columbus hops. It is very hoppy, aromatic and intense. All hopheads will love it! 3rd Place, Silver Medal at the 1995 California State Fair’s first Craft Brewers Competition. Silver Medal IPA at 1995 Great American Beer Festival!
    • 7% ABV
    • 62 IBU




    Pacific Coast Cask Columbus IPA




    Bear Republic Racer 5 IPA

    This hoppy American IPA is a full bodied beer brewed with American pale and crystal malts, and heavily hopped with Chinook, Cascade, Columbus and Centennial.
    • 7.0% ABV
    • 75+ IBU




    Sierra Nevada Kellerweis

    Sierra Nevada Kellerweis is one of the only American Hefeweizens made using the traditional Bavarian style of open fermentation. This difficult and labor-intensive technique adds uncommon depth and flavor complexity. This hazy-golden hefeweizen is deeply flavorful, refreshing and perfect for a sunny day.
    • 15 IBU
    • 4.8% ABV



    Lost Coast Great White Ale

    A crisp beer with a hint of citrus, made with two row malted barley, unmalted wheat, a secret blend of Humbolt herbs, crystal clear mountain water and ale yeast.
    • 4.8% AVB.




    Green Flash Trippel Belgian Style Ale

    Rich pale malt flavors provide a solid base for zesty Styrian Golding and Czech Saaz hopping. Trappist ale yeast contributes the fruity, spicy profile of classic, monk-brewed, Belgian ales. This Trippel is luscious, fiery, golden brew and a contemporary rendition of traditional Belgian Trippel.


    North Coast Brother Thelonious

    Belgian Style Abbey Ale. Like a Belgian “Dark Strong Ale”, the beer is rich and robust and named after the jazz master.
    • ABV of 9.3%
    • 32 IBU




    Trumer Pils

    Brewed by an Austrian Brewery in Berkeley, CA! This brew pours a bright gold color showing reasonable carbonation. Right from the start the impression is one of smoothness. A smooth mouthfeel, soft on the palate, a very mellow and delicate hop character matched to a pleasant pilsner malt flavor.


    Lindeman’s Framboise Lambic

    Classic Belgian Lambic Raspberry ale. Unlike American Fruit beers, this beer takes 2 years to make. It is fermented spontaneously and uses real fruit for its flavor. It is quite tart and is almost overpowering in its raspberry flavor.



    Stella Artois

    Brewed in Belgium, Stella Artois is a pilsner, it is “low fermented” at a low temperature to produce a delicate, hoppy beer, with a fine hop aroma and subtle bitterness. It has an alcohol content of 5.2% vol.
