Uptown Oakland's Woods Beer Expands to Treasure Island
Best known for its Uptown brewery and bar, Woods Beer is launching the panoramic Woods Island Club on Treasure Island next month.
Sporting an indoor bar housed in an old airplane hangar -- along with outdoor bar on its own panoramic 4,000-square-foot sandy beach, depicted above -- the Woods Island Club will open softly on July 9, and on selected weekends thereafter as it gains traction.
Other features will include a tasting room, barrel-aging facility, pop-up food options, private event spaces and a kid-friendly ambience. Founded by Jim Woods, Woods Beer brews small batches of experimental beers with deep local roots -- such as MateVeza, a unique IPA made with yerba maté.
