This unassuming little shack down by the railroad tracks and warehouse district in Oakland is the place where beer geeks come to hang out, argue about hoppiness and one-up each other with their knowledge of obscure West Coast regional craft brews. Totally laid-back atmosphere, though, and a great place to unwind at the end of a long day.Recommended for:Budget Travelers

Huge selection of beers, in both bottles and on tap, with 3 blackboards showing the specials that are available! If you like beer, from anywhere in the world, this is your place!

REVELRY AND REVOLUTION!
Beer Revolution could be considered a Study Hall for Gogobot University. And in preparation for my Oral Examinations, the following multiple choice question was posed yesterday: What song do you feel like singing when you first walk into this place?
A. In Heaven There Is No Beer....
B. 99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall...
C. Why Don't We Get Drunk (and Screw)
D. You Say you Want a Revolution....
E. Up Against the Wall Redneck Mother...
F. 40 Ounces To Freedom
G. Drop Kick Me Jesus Through the Goalposts of Life
Although the Super Bowl is coming up, Choice "G" is out as Beer Revolution is not a sports bar, and you'll need to watch the Pigskin elsewhere. However, the Pulled Pork BBQ sandwich that I purchased just outside (with fresh cole slaw and polenta) could make pigs fly.
I haven't seen such a good beer selection since my last visit to the Flying Saucer in Houston. The bottle choices are amazing and the carefully chosen draft selection could easily keep me engaged for a very long time. The folks at the bar also really know their beer and are more than hoppy to help you make a happy choice.
Best of all, this is a place that my parents would really enjoy. It's cozy, friendly, unpretentious, and gives you good value for your beer money. It's a great place to chat the time away among friends. And if I include the dog, I'm almost home.
