Federation Brewing Co., Blonde 5.0% ABV $7
Basically a pilsner, but fermented with the cleanest ale yeast we've ever seen, this refreshing beer goes down quickly after a long day. Tettnanger and Hallertau hops contribute dryness rather than bitterness- THIS IS NOT HOPPY.
Drake’s Hefeweizen ABV: 4.5% IBU: 15 $7
An unfiltered, Bavarian style wheat beer. We incorporate 40% wheat malt and 60% 2-row malt with floral Vanguard hops. Then, a Bavarian hefeweizen yeast strain imparts the traditional and distinctive aromas of banana and clove. True to our West Coast style, this beer finishes dry, making it easy to enjoy another pint.
Fieldwork Brewing, IPA, $8
Fieldwork Brewery literally makes a new IPA every 2 weeks. Always different than the one before but always delicious. Ask the bartender what’s on tap this week.
BarrelHouse, Stout, ABV: 6.0% IBU: 14 $7
A creamy, complex, drinkable stout. This beer was crafted unfiltered with oats for creaminess, lactose for sweetness, Belgian dark syrups for intense dark fruit notes, dark malts for a hint of chocolate and coffee roast, and just enough hops for an award-winning bittersweet finish.
2013 Periscope Cellars, Chardonnay, Napa $7
Lightly-oaked with flavors of fresh apple and light minerals being counterbalanced by a subtle layers of spice and light creaminess.
2014 Periscope Cellars, Moscato, California $7
Floral tropical nose. Luscious and juicy with just a hint of sweetness.
2014 Periscope Cellars, Rose, California $9
Dark in color but light and juicy in flavor. Filled with sweet cherry, raspberry and strawberry fruit. Bright acidity with a long lingering finish.
2011 Periscope Cellars, Cab Sauv, Napa Valley $10
Dark fruit, black plum, spice and ahint of cocoa in the aromas. It is full in the palate with good concentration, dark fruit flavors and considerable structure in the finish.
THE NEGRONITA 9
Negroni’s are one of the great all-time old-man cocktails. This is our more smooth and delicate version of the Italian classic.
SCARLET SPRITZ 8
The most popular drink in Italy and now a favorite in Oakland. Our Scarlet Spritz is the perfect fizzy mix of Prosecco and Cappelletti (similar to Aperol). It’s refreshing and deliciously addictive!
THE EX-PAT 9
The complexity of Angostura bitters with the richness of Small Hands Orgeat Syrup, citrus and a backbone of oak and vanilla.
GOLDEN SPIKE 9
Lemonade Oakland-style (that means with booze). Bright citrus layered with our house-made Ginger-Mint Syrup and a sizeable kick of “The Clear”*. Named for the joining of Oakland and the Transcontinental Railroad to the East Coast in 1869.
CUBA LIBRE! 9
The classic "Cuba Libre!" just hasn’t been the same since 1901 when Coca-Cola phased out its significant cocaine content. Instead we’ve found that Italy’s popular Chinatto soda provides an interesting substitute.
The ‘HOUND 7
Freshly-squeezed grapefruit juice and “The Clear”*. Simple.
