Diving Dog Brewhouse

For the Bay Area’s beer-loving populace, the plethora of craft breweries in the area boggles the mind. But for the true DIY types, downtown Oakland’s Diving Dog Brewhouse takes artisanal beer brewing to custom-made. If you’ve ever wanted to cook up a batch of self-branded brew, Diving Dog provides everything you need to make and bottle your own suds. Choose from more than 20 well-tested recipes and perform quality- control tastings on other brews close to their fermentation date. It’s part of the fun. After a few weeks of your brew sitting in the Diving Dog temperature-controlled rooms, you get to come back and filter, carbonate, and bottle or keg-up your homemade batch. It works out to be about six cases, if all goes according to plan. Submit your own artwork, and they’ll print up labels to go with your beer. Take ’em home and impress your friends. Aren’t you the coolest kid on the block?
