Who Are we?
A pint-sized brewery and taproom in Albany, CA crafting small batch beers. Ocean View was the original name of Albany, CA from 1908-1909 after the city became independent from Berkeley. The name refers to the entire West Berkeley/Albany region and the brewery is named to reflect the rich history of the area. The beers reflect traditional styles and some new styles with a twist.
We are family-owned, by Scott and Vonnie Davidson. You will often find us there with our two boys and our dogs! We work hard to bring you engaging experiences and great beers. Vonnie and her mom, Carrie, recently opened Kitchenette, the small kitchen portion of the property. Now, you can enjoy panini, bagels, coffee, smoothies, salads, and more with your beverage.
We are BIG on supporting other small businesses and our community. Visit a craft vendor fair, listen to local musicians, shop our merchandise -which is printed around the corner, hats just north!
