Beer Revolution (alt. beer rev) is a nice bar in Jack London Square. They have a significant number of local beers for an extremely affordable price.

Beer Revolution was started in 2010 by Fraggle and Rebecca Boyles who were married at the time.

In early 2013, the owners of beer rev expanded next door to open The Olde Depot, a vegan sausage establishment and bar (that heavily focuses on stout!), in the Western Pacific Depot Building, but it has since closed.

Won 2014 "Readers' Choice" Best Beer Selection in Oakland Magazine.
