Many people don’t realize that Oakland was a big brewing town all the way up until the late ’50s. Now, it’s turning right back into one. At the heart of this revival is Adam Lamoreaux’s Linden Street Brewery. While it may be tiny, it’s the first production brewery to open in Oakland in about 50 years. We check out Linden Street, taste Adam’s old-timey lagers, and also go to a couple of Oakland’s coolest beer bars (where Adam delivers kegs by bicycle!): Beer Revolution and the Trappist.
