Awesome 3 month old brewery. Came here with a group of friends on a Sunday, each with a Groupon - $19 for 2 pints and a 64 oz growler (other options available as well). Unfortunately, they ran out of growlers so we were given 2-32 oz crowlers for any 2 beers aside from nitros. Great deal still 19 beers on tap. They had pretty much every type of beer: hazy ipa, DIPA, pale ale, cream ale, sour, stout, porter, nitros, etc. Theres something for everyone. I liked practically every beer I tried and that does not happen often. Beers were cheap too. Anywhere from $3-5 for a 10 or 16 oz pour (depending on how strong). Most were 16 oz though. Growler fills were $10-20, +$5 for the growler itself. No food truck when we went, but they were selling grilled cheese sandwiches on the side. No other food was available. Service was good. Beertenders were more than happy to let us sample before we purchased. Very spacious inside with a ton of seating, cornhole, foosball, board games, a large projector for sports. Plenty of street parking. I found my new favorite east bay brewery. Can't wait to go back
Made a stop here while canvassing around the neighborhood; lots of seating between indoor and outdoor space; street parking; I'm more of a light beer drinker like 805 or Shocktop; I liked "Inhume" the best! No food but there was a great Mexican food truck right outside with tasty tacos and burritos!
Super chill beer hall in West Oakland. For me the Hail Saison and Cat Hoarder Porter were the standouts. Dog and baby/toddler friendly. Foosball, cornhole, and projector for sports and movies. Loads of indoor bike parking. The night we went there was a food truck outside for dinner, but the truck was cash only.
GHOST TOWN BREWING IS A DREAM COME TRUE!! Upon entering GTB I heard "Evisceration Plague" BY CaNNIBAL CORPSE, AND I instantly KNEW I found a new home. I think I actually teared up a bit from time to time, as I heard endless amounts of metal soaring through the speakers. I felt like I finally found a place where a metal head such as myself could drink fuckin great beer and listen to the music that I really like & not be forced to listen to some stupid pop or R&B bullshit shit mixed in to keep the mood calm. It was all METAL. All of it. Much Respect to the people who started Ghost Town Brewing. FOR REAL!!
Like most of the breweries that are getting ever so popular around the bay area, Ghost Town also has it all. Large tasting room that's inviting, board games, indoor bike racks, pin ball machines, family and dog friendly...and most importantly, solid beer selection. You can sample/taste a couple of beers before you make your selection... lots of fun names and descriptions too. The neighborhood is a little sketch, so make sure you don't leave any valuables visible in your car unless you want a broken window (this statement goes for anywhere around the bay area now a days). Looking forward to coming back with the family.
Very cool spot in Oakland! The space is very open--lots of indoor seating (I don't believe there was any outdoor seating), and you can see the machines brewing the beer. Prices were good in my opinion! Some beers for as little as $3! If you bike, there is tons of indoor area to lock up bikes which is awesome and appreciated! There are several arcade games inside. They also have a large projector that projects onto the wall. They have a couple snacks you can buy when ordering drinks, otherwise when I was there on a Sunday afternoon they had a food truck out at front. Overall a funky place that is a bit of no frills place but perfect for just getting a drink and hanging out!
On our day of brewery crawl, our group's second stop was Ghost Town Brewing. It's located on Adeline St. in West Oakland in a gray non-descript warehouse building on a corner. I've driven down Adeline many occasions and never realize this was a craft brewery. Street parking around the building was easy. The brewery operations is in the back area of the warehouse and the tap room side is large with many tables with seating for four and up. You order from the tap bar and enjoy your brews at one of the tables. The menu offerings on this day consisted of seven lights, nine IPAs and 6 malt forwards. Prices range from $5 -$6 for a 16 oz pour. I and another friend opted for the Flight, which was four five ounce pours for $20. Since I love the porters and stouts, I went with the Cat Hoarder porter, Unholy Imperial stout, Foreign Object nitro stout, and Cat Hoarder nitro. They were all delicious with their own unique nuances. But out of the four I enjoyed the Unholy Imperial stout. For entertainment, there was a foosball table and three pinball machines. There wasn't any food service. They have beer in cans in the refrigerator that you can buy. The crowd was nice and mellow. Great beer in a nice tap room. I'll be back again.

Cool spot. Usually got good food trucks, business there. Plenty of different types of beers. Also got the sickest gear to buy.
Ghost town just gets better each time I come! They started with a few beers on tap and now their tap list has grown to over 20 beers and the most amazing part is they haven't raised their prices!!! $6 for a pint of craft. +crowlers, growlers, and 4-packs +shelf with board games +few arcade games +corn-hole +taco trucks on most days +outside food allowed +dogs and children allowed +bike racks available Service has always been great! Def one of my favorite brewery in the Town.
Good beer! I especially liked their sea salt sour. Why doesn't every bar/taproom offer beer flights?

As Ghost Town’s first satellite taproom, Ghost Town Laurel brings the award-winning brews of one of Oakland’s larger breweries to East Oakland. Picnic bench seating fills a large outdoor patio, with umbrellas at each table providing abundant shade for the whole yard, making this an excellent spot for a warm weather pint. For food, a range of modern and tried-and-true pub classics are on offer, and the kid and dog-friendly make this a great place to stop for groups of any size or composition.

WC IPA Hopped with Mosaic Cryo + Riwaka Cryo! Tis’ the season for all things morbid, thus why we bring our minds together with the crew from Ghosttown every year (3 years in a row now!) to bring you all this face ripper nightmare of West Coast IPA, and this year with a blazin’ hot new hop profile, V.2!
WC Pilsner A light-bodied lager that's terrifyingly quaffable. Gaunt is 5.2% ABV and hopped with Riwaka, Nectaron, and Mosaic for complex flavors of pineapple, berries, and citrus to ease your weary bones.
Hazy IPA A ferocious federation of sweet pineapple, fuzzy apricots, juicy honeydew melons and bitter orange marmalade.
Robust Porter An aquifer of sublime darkness. Its flavors of bitter chocolate, coffee roast, and burnt sugar make for an unholy trinity.
Hazy IPA That ratchet old-grasp known as Monkey's Paw intervenes with unforeseen dubiousness once more. It smells like a wild animal and tastes of an Urban Legend.
Oak-aged Rustic Ale Step into Glitter Box, the latest release from the West Town Bier Series of humble, Oak-aged Rustic Ales. This was brewed with a light sprinkle of spices in the kettle, followed by a large dump post-fermentation of tiny ploppings of Bay Leaf, Rosemary, foraged Ponderosa Pine, White Peppercorns, Mint, Sumac, Coriander and a final splatter of Chamomile.
SH Fresh Hop IPA It is sticky with premium oily flavors of freshly cut Strawberry Bush, Citrus, and Sheesh. These Whole Cone Fresh Strata Hops made it from up north to West Oakland in an insanely fast time, it’ll disappear just as quickly.
Indian Pale Ale A vagabond of a West Coast IPA that leaves pleasant Tropical Effervescence wherever it once lingered. Drift with Wandercrust through encampments of Passion Fruit, jump into boxcars of Guava and sun yourself upon a sidewalk sullied with Blood Orange.
Hazy IPA Deiform is a new immortal West Coast IPA brewed in collaboration with the enlightened heads of @moksabrewing (Rocklin, CA)

Ghost Town Brewing to open second location at former 4505 Burgers & BBQ

In a time when many businesses are struggling, West Oakland’s Ghost Town Brewing is expanding. Last month, the craft brewery acquired a 10-year lease to property at 3506 MacArthur Blvd. in Oakland’s Laurel District, where they aim to open a taphouse and beer garden by the end of February. The property is the former location of chef Ryan Farr’s Oakland outpost of 4505 Burgers & BBQ , which operated on the spot for one year before the closure. Farr still owns the space.
“They were one of our customers,” said Ryan Nosek, co-owner and co-founder of Ghost Town Brewing, “and now they’re our landlords.”
Farr shuttered 4505 at the end of July due to the loss of business during the pandemic, but had hoped to reopen the restaurant in spring 2021, according to the San Francisco Chronicle. Nosek is unsure why Farr decided not to reopen in the space, but is happy for the opportunity to expand and extend his own business.
“We always loved that space, thought it was a cool neighborhood, and it’s got a good beer garden vibe,” Nosek said. “And it’s completely outdoors, which bodes well for the pandemic, but even post-pandemic.”
“It’s unfortunate that they had to close,” he said, “but at the same time, this expansion is something that we really don’t want to miss.”
A quiet start in West Oakland
Ghost Town Brewing started out quietly as a side project for a group of bandmates. Then in 2018, they opened their flagship brewery and taphouse at 1960 Adeline St. in West Oakland. The four co-founders — Nosek, Sam Carr-Prindle, Jason Gehman and Adam Hill — wanted to serve up quality ales at reasonable prices. When they opened the taproom, they were adamant about creating a type of hangout that they and their neighbors could afford.
Ghost Town prices its beers based on brewing time and ABV content. The longer the brewing time, or the higher the ABV, the more a pint will cost. So beers range in price from $3 Scumbag cream ales at the low end (At only 4.6% ABV, these ales are “highly crushable,” said Nosek) to $7 sour beers, which take longer to produce, at the high end.
Part of the reason Ghost Town is able to offer beer at such prices is because it maintains tight control over production and distribution. It does all its own brewing and all its own delivery, which is no small feat considering production has nearly doubled since Nosh first wrote about Ghost Town in 2018. It now sells its beers as far north as Windsor in Sonoma County, as far south as San Jose, and east to Sacramento. “Basically within a 50-ish mile radius of West Oakland,” said Nosek.
As with many businesses, the coronavirus has forced Ghost Town to reconsider how it had been operating. While it still does a brisk business in draft beer out of its West Oakland taphouse, in the early days of the pandemic Ghost Town pivoted to offering its more than 30 beers in can form. Readers can find Ghost Town ales, IPAs, sours, porters and stouts packaged as four-packs of 16-ounce cans in liquor stores, bottle shops and grocery stores, including Whole Foods and at both Berkeley Bowls. Or they can always pick up beers to-go at Ghost Town’s West Oakland taphouse.
In another bit of good news, Ghost Town never had to lay off or furlough any of its 20-plus employees. Even when one of its staffers tested positive for COVID-19, forcing a temporary shut down last weekend.
On Jan. 8, Nosek confirmed that a sales representative tested positive for COVID-19. Nosek closed the business for two days, to clean and sanitize the facility and test other employees. As of publication, no other Ghost Town employees have tested positive. “Everyone else has tested negative,” said Nosek, “So we’re back in operation, and he’s quarantining and doing well.”
“It’s our first [case] and overall we’ve had pretty good luck over the course of the pandemic,” said Nosek. “We were fortunate because the person in question didn’t have much exposure to the in-house brewing staff, or in a customer-facing role. So it wasn’t as bad as it could have been.”
What to expect at the new Laurel location
Nosek had hoped to open the second location by California Craft Beer Week , running from Feb. 12-21, but he can’t guarantee the opening date. At any rate, whenever the new location opens it would likely only be for to-go orders anyway.
“We’re envisioning launching with all of our beers that we have here over there,” said Nosek, in growlers, crowlers (32 oz, single-use aluminum cans), and four packs. “We have every single beer that we make available in cans as well.”
Ghost Town’s second location will have two significant differences from its West Oakland flagship. For one, it will be almost entirely outdoors. (“During the spring, summer and fall it should be beautiful out there,” said Nosek.) Should outdoor dining be allowed with social distancing, the space could comfortably accommodate 40 people. And once widespread vaccination is achieved, perhaps 100.
“We’ll have to see how we feel about it once everything is set up,” said Nosek. “It’s more about comfort than stacking bodies.”
Another point of difference is that the MacArthur location will have an in-house restaurant. The taproom in West Oakland does not have an on-site kitchen but has hosted a rotation of food trucks, like Oakland’s Taco Panzon and San Jose’s Mesquite & Oak . Ghost Town also allows patrons to bring their own food. “But we have seen the value of having food there,” said Nosek. “So the new taproom will have a full restaurant on premise.”
Exactly what that restaurant will look like — staff, style, menu — is still being worked out, but it will be Ghost Town-owned and operated, “and hopefully pair well with beer,” said Nosek. Patrons will have plenty of beers to choose from, as Ghost Town is installing 32 draft lines.
Nosek is excited for the opportunity to open in the Laurel neighborhood, an area he describes as “underserved from the craft beer perspective.” When it opens, Ghost Town will join one other business focused on craft beers — Degrees Plato taproom and bottle shop.
“[As a brewer] you could make the case for moving into a highly saturated area like Jack London or Temescal,” he said. Being in such a location could mean plenty of business from casual bar-hoppers and destination drinkers. But Nosek says he has learned from experience that going the less-traveled route has its advantages, too.
“When we opened here in West Oakland, people said, ‘Who’s gonna come out there?’ And it really blew up. And we think that’s true for other neighborhoods as well,” he said. “And even for a city the size of Oakland, driving across town from east to west is something people sometimes don’t feel like doing. So rather than having to come to us, we’ll bring the beer to them.”
Ghost Town Brewing’ s soon-to-be second location will be at 3506 MacArthur Blvd. The Ghost Town West Oakland taproom at 1960 Adeline St. is currently open for takeout sales from 2-7 p.m., Monday to Wednesday; noon to 7 p.m., Thursday to Sunday.

Centuries from now when we are caught resting, are tied down and cut open for 'scientific purposes', it's true, instead of organs they will find hops inside of us. Inside that internal flavor-flower, coated in a thick layer of Lupulin, you'll find our guts. Recently, we showed this off to our friends at Slice Beer (Lincoln, CA) who snatched a handful and chucked 'em into our kettle cooking up Lurid Lupulin West Coast DIPA. It was that something extra in this 8.3% masterpiece; the dismembered innards really tied the Mosaic Incognito + Mosaic Cryo + Experimental 586 + Eclipse + Whole Cone Strata together creating an unnatural effect of sticky Berry notes, horrific chunky Peaches and ripped Tangerines. Consuming Lurid Lupulin will bring you closer to us but it will not make you live forever as we do.

After 14 Years, Oakland’s Souley Vegan Closes Permanently

Souley Vegan , the Oakland restaurant that serves vegan soul food dishes, is now closed after 14 years in business, East Bay Nosh reports.
It’s the end of an era for the restaurant that helped popularize vegan soul food in the Bay Area. Chef and owner Tamearra Dyson opened Souley Vegan in 2009 at 301 Broadway, becoming popular in vegetarian and vegan circles for dishes such as her Soul Food Platter with fried tofu, red beans and rice, and cashew mac and cheese. Her Creole food helped Oakland become recognized as one of the top Vegan Cities in the country and even garnered a visit from Guy Fieri and his TV show, Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives . Dyson expanded Souley Vegan in 2020 into other parts of the West Coast, adding ghost kitchen outlets in Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
A GoFundMe for the restaurant launched in August, looking to raise capital to “address the financial hurdles that developed during COVID-19” and “provide financial space for us to breathe into our next steps of expansion.” Despite that, the flagship restaurant quietly closed with an announcement on its website reading, “We thank you for your love and support over the years.” In an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle , Dyson said low foot traffic in her Oakland neighborhood made the business unsustainable, stating, “The effort is not worth the trouble.” Both ghost kitchen locations closed prior to the flagship.
It’s not entirely the end for the restaurant, however; Dyson told the Chronicle that she’s looking to reopen in a different part of the Bay Area.
