Our Beers

Very few brewpubs offer beer from other breweries, but in his quest to open the ultimate beer emporium, Steve Wolff has gone out of his way to bring out the most interesting beers, offering twentyfour taps, a third of which are house brewed. With the addition of a new mashtun and a creative new brewmaster we are ramping up production with new styles and reformulations of old Pacific Coast Brewing Company favorites.

Atmosphere

The elaborate stained glass window, which adorns the store front, along with the ornate bar and beer cooler, once graced the interior of the historic Cox Saloon, formerly located not far from their present day home in Old Oakland. These pieces have been incorporated into the pub that features a hardwood floor, brick wall, antiques and a heated beer garden adorned with greenery growing up its redwood trellis. A satellite dish with multiple television screens and a CD juke box have added a contemporary accent to the traditional pub atmosphere. We also provide free wireless internet access.

History

There is a lot of history tied up in the Pacific Coast Brewing Co. The building itself, built in 1876 and less than a block from the Oakland Convention Center, is a part of a major renovation of downtown Oakland, and has been beautifully restored inside and out. The pub owners were able to acquire from the Oakland Museum some of their museum pieces for actual use in the pub.

The brewing equipment, downstairs from the pub, has also seen some history since its manufacture in Great Britain in 1980. It was the first turn-key brewery imported into this country for use as a micro-brewery. It originally saw service at the Palo Alto Brewing Company between 1984 and 1986.
