Trappist Provisions Brings Specialty Beer to Rockridge

By

Rockridge is totally popping, ladies and gentlemen, what with Friday's opening of Ramen Shop, and the upcoming Box & Bells and A16. And today we learn that Trappist Provisions (6309 College Avenue) quietly opened last week as well. It's the offshoot of The Trappist in Old Oakland, and we'd heard about this new location last year. It's basically a small bottle shop and beer bar, modeled after owner Chuck Stilphen's other beer spot in Walnut Creek, ØL Beercafe & Bottle Shop. See the current featured beer list here, which includes a special holiday brew from Belgium called De Dolle Stille Nacht, and an aged Japanese beer made with Sorachi Ace hops.
