Still O.G. in San Jose

Original Gravity Public House was the first of its kind in San Jose. A bar completely dedicated to craft beers. Sure there were some places like Good Karma that featured a limited selection of craft beers first, but Original Gravity was truly the first of its kind in San Jose. The proprietors then went on to open Paper Plane, Miniboss, and soon will open they highly anticipated Eos & Nyx (more on that next week).

Now that craft beer is everywhere, the owners decided to turn Original Gravity into two new concepts: Still O.G. and Alter Ego.

Still O.G. still has craft beers, but they are also adding cocktails on tap and the vibe will be very different. Think analog with vinyl records all over the place and a high-end sound system. Still O.G. has been packed since it opened a month ago and is well worth checking out.

If you want a more relaxing atmosphere, you can head to the back where there is a completely different bar called Alter Ego featuring craft cocktails. It's a hidden bar within a bar, you can call it a modern speakeasy (last photo below). It looks amazing and will be yet another top destination for San Jose's nightlife.

You can find Still O.G. and Alter Ego at 66 S. First Street. More photos and info at the source link.

SJ Co-op Brewpub Event at Original Gravity Tomorrow!

For all of you beer-lovers out there, the new SJ Co-op Brewpub is hosting an event along with Calicraft Brewing company over at the Original Gravity Public House. This is going to be the first co-op owned and operated brewpub in California! Ownership costs a mere $150 one-time payment, a small price to pay for being able to say you own a bar (and several other benefits). Full disclosure, I just signed up last week. For more info, just keep on reading.


SJ Co-op Brewpub is collaborating with Original Gravity on 4/13 for a co-op membership drive event from 1 - 6 pm. Stop by at any time, enjoy delicious beer, pulled pork specials, meet members from the co-op, and chat with the CaliCraft brewers! Anthony Bourdain and Eric Ripert will be in town that night for their "Good vs. Evil" tour; we're hoping our creative efforts will encourage them to stop by and have some beers with the gang - follow our Facebook page to learn more and get involved!

About us
San Jose Co-op Brewpub will be the first cooperative brewery in California. We are targeting 3,000 member-owners to help build and be part of this unique addition to the South Bay craft beer community. Our membership is increasing quickly at 130 members to date - now is the time to join and be part of something amazing!
The mission of the cooperative is for our members to:

*Collaboratively establish and manage a profitable brewpub
*Produce high-quality craft beers that can be paired with great, locally sourced food
*Foster a fun and enjoyable environment for owner-members, worker-members and the public
Company Overview
The Co-op Brewpub is currently made up of a small group of energetic and passionate individuals, from all walks of life, who have spent the last few months laying the ground work for the future brewpub.

We are looking for more members - homebrewers, craft beer enthusiasts, entrepreneurs, adventurists, SJ advocates, and creative people to help build the co-op from the ground up.

Members will help make major decisions in building the co-op; such as what beers to brew, what food to serve, location, and culture.

The dream of a cooperative brewpub is modeled after Black Star Co-op in Austin, Tx -

Summer Kraft Brew Beer Fest 2012

Next week Beer-fans can rejoice, the Summer KraftBrew Beer Fest is happening in Downtown San Jose! On Post St. you will be able to sample an insane number of craft beers while enjoying live music. This is the perfect location, which is a stones-throw away from Good Karma (phenomenal selection of craft beers), A Perfect Finish, San Jose's own Gordon Biersch, and Original Gravity Public House. That last one is my most highly anticipated new Downtown restaurant/bar this year and you will definitely have to check it out when it opens.

Also don't forget to have a look at the BetterBeerBlog for full coverage of Summer KraftBrew 2012.
