Beer Revolution (12th St Oakland)
Beer Revolution joined the downtown Oakland craft beer scene in February, 2010. They are a bottle shop that is changing into a bar, now offering 47 taps of their rotating draft selection. Alternatively, you can crack open a bottle from their cooler to share with friends and decide if you want to buy more to take home with you. Much like City Beer Store in San Francisco, Beer Revolution is designed as a venue in which to discover new beers, share old favorites with friends and talk about the beers with other craft beer lovers… then take home a bottle or so.
When not crowded, the venue feels roomy with a nice size bar and several tables inside and a large deck out front for outdoor sipping in the plentiful East Bay sun.
Extras: While minors are not allowed into Beer Revolution, Olde Depot next door is family-friendly. Located near Jack London Square, there are many food and entertainment options to pair with your delicious beer experience. You can also bring food into the store or order from Olde Depot next door for delivery. They are located 5 and 6 blocks from Rosamunde Sausage Grill, The Trappist and Pacific Coast Brewery for an easy mini-beer tour of downtown Oakland. They are also near the Jack London ferry terminal, where boats to SF run except in the winter months.
