A neighborhood gathering space where everyone can enjoy quality locally brewed craft beer and chill beats.

Hoi Polloi (noun): the many, the masses, the common people.

Hoi Polloi Brewing Taproom and Beat Lounge is located in the Lorin District of South Berkeley, CA. Our beers are brewed on our off-site 7 barrel brewery located in Oakland, CA. This allows us to produce a variety of beers that (we hope!) will be enjoyed by a wide audience. We also host a carefully curated and rotating selection of wine and ciders.

Come in, say hello, and sit for a session. We’ve been waiting to meet you.
