Temescal Brewing is a very cool little brewery in an up and coming neighborhood of Oakland. It features a small tap room with a larger outdoor patio. On rainy days, half the patio will be tented. There is a dedicated space outside for a food truck which is regularly present. You are welcomed to bring in your own food.
There is one TV for local sports. The brewing tanks are in full view from the bar and seating area. The window seats provide a great view of the street scene on Telegraph Ave.
At any given time there will be 5-10 house beers to choose from.
Extras: Hog’s Apothecary is within easy walking distance for your meaty eating and other local beer enjoyment.

Walk out of BART and go left to 40th Street. Turn right on 40th and continue one block to Telegraph Ave. Turn left on Telegraph and walk about 1/2 block to Temescal Brewing on the left.
Note that MacArthur BART – a BART station which has seen late night crime – can be intimidating after dark. This route is not the most scenic walk in Oakland, and it can be rather desolate. You might decide to walk over by daylight, for example, or go with some friends.
