2017 People's Choice Best Brew


After beer tasting at the Burger & Brew fest, attendees were invited to vote for their favorite brew.

The 2017 Winner?

Oakland United Beerwork's belgian dubbel with coffee

This rich and malty ale is an interesting variation of a classic Belgian Dubbel. Brewed with RoastCo Coffee from West Oakland, we added their cold-brewed Ethiopian Guji after the fermentation process to enrich this ale with its fig and blueberry notes. Perfectly complementing the dried fruit characteristics from the malt, the coffee flavor is subtle at the finish.
