“Wonderful gem for beer lovers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

Had lunch here last Saturday. Great little place ! Great selection of beer on tap, stouts, sours, belgian ales, etc. We had lunch, too and the food was surprisingly good "foodie" quality. Food menu is small, but the bacon/mushroom and reuben sandwiches were outstanding. The persimmon salad was awesome, too. We ate on the back patio, nice and quiet. Highly recommended !!

“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.

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

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.
