Trappist Provisions in Rockridge Soon to Become Mikkeller Oakland


One of the East Bay's best brew destinations will undergo some minor tweaks this summer. Trappist Provisions, the cozy neighborhood beer bar and bottle shop on College Avenue in Rockridge, will become Mikkeller Tasting Room and Bottle Shop next month.

“It should happen sometime in August. We don’t have a set grand-opening date yet," co-owner Chuck Stilphen told the Express this afternoon.

He said Provisions will not close during the transition, but there will be “little changes every day until it looks like a Mikkeller bar.”

Stilphen plans for twelve taps, nine of them offering Mikkeller beers brewed in San Diego, which focuses on the famed, eclectic Danish brewer's hoppy West Coast-style offerings. There will also still be bottles to-go.

Mikkeller Oakland is the latest location after locations in Los Angeles and San Francisco. Keep an eye out for more at
