“Awesome if you like this kind of beer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 20, 2013

My objective view of this place is that if you love variety in beers, you need to visit this place. For a guy who just likes a good pilsner, it might not be for you. A good crowd, great beer. Definitely worth a visit in downtown Oakland.

“Prepare Yourself, Beer Lovers, for Belgian Heaven”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

Every trip to Oakland must include partaking of some delicious Belgian beer at the Trappist. Probably not for the casual "Coors Light" crowd.. anyone who appreciates beer will adore this bar. I leave happy every time.

If you like top quality beer especially Belgian Styles this is THE place to stop. Reasonably priced for w wonderful experience and way better that average brew.

“a must-visit”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013 via mobile

Amazing beer selection. Knowledgable down-to-earth bartenders. Well cared-for decor. They specialize in Belgian & Scandanavian beer, but also have a well-curated selection of beers from other locales (Italy, New Zeland, Japan). They care about their beer and believe in making the very best available.

“Best selection of beer in the Bay Area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 26, 2013

With Beer Revolution, Pacific Coast Brewery, and the Trappist, one could probably consider Jack London/ Old Oakland to be a beer drinkers Oasis.
The Trappist is a great place to have a pint in a relaxed, chill atmosphere.
