Beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.

We love beer and know you do too. Diving Dog is a beer bar, brewery, and brew-on-premises venue in Uptown Oakland. Brew-on-premises, or “BOP,” allows customers to brew beer on professional brewing equipment regardless of prior brewing experience. Diving Dog provides the recipe, equipment, ingredients, and instruction for you to craft your beer.
Diving Dog also features thirty taps, two of which are nitrogen providing for smaller bubbles and a smoother mouthfeel (ideal for Stouts and Porters). Beyond the taps are a multitude of bottled beers, local wines, and nonalcoholic options. While there is no kitchen at the Diving Dog, outside food is always welcome from local eateries and we have already started partnering with local chefs for popups and beer pairings.
And about the name — having grown up with dogs that couldn’t stay out of the water, the Brewhouse is named in tribute to every amazing dog out there who will swim underwater to retrieve. A chocolate lab named Roscoe was the original diving dog.
Whether you are looking to brew or drink a quality craft beer (or several), we have you covered. Cheers!
