America's Best Beer Bars

Slide 12 of 17

Beer Revolution, Oakland

Come for the beer, not the setting at this florescent-lit East Bay bar. As the bar’s name suggests and punk rock owner Fraggle (no last name) dictates, no big business beers are sold here. There are 47 taps, such as Pacific Brewing Laboratory’s Nautilus Hibiscus Saison, made with coriander, ginger and hibiscus flowers, and you can pay the $1 “corkage fee” to crack open a bottle from one of the beer fridges.
