Re: “Landlord Of West Oakland Building Destroyed By Fire Was Working To Evict Tenants

What is going on in Oakland and can be done about it? Wasn't Ghost Ship enough of a warning?

What about the two dead? They appear to be very incidental to the story. Do we care who they are?

Re: “Corporate Beer Overlords AB InBev To Open Golden Road 'Craft' Beer Garden in North Oakland

I'm in conflict here. I see where some of the readers are concerned about a corporate entity coming in with their "craft" brewery, which it probably technically is since its brewed on-site with local labor.
On the other hand I'm a little uneasy about the financial influence they'll probably have over their competitors like Drakes and Temescal. But this could prove to be a good thing to make the market better as a whole - makes everybody work a bit harder to offer us a better product and good time?
I'm thinking there's another story here though. You'd have to wonder why a company that does $45 billion in sales annually, and employs 200,000 worldwide, would want to open a beer garden in Oakland.
I'm going to speculate that this is to seriously test the market for products that are popular with the public, a public that is very savvy when it comes to beer. After they're open, and you see, for instance, a cilantro infused beer on tap for a month and then it disappears, well AB Inbev is probably not going to start producing that anytime soon. Should we see a violet infused ale the next month and its wildly successful going forward, well, their market research was paid for by beer consumers in the greater Oakland area.

Excellent, timely reporting by EB Express. Horrifying situation pointing out desperate need for housing which is actually affordable---especially in no-longer-affordable west Oakland.

It says two people died in this fire. Can we acknowlege them?

Re: “Landlord Of West Oakland Building Destroyed By Fire Was Working To Evict Tenants

This is truly horrifying. This landlord was able to operate his campaign against tenants largely unchecked. Worse, it sounds like the situation in this building was well known to the City and could have been intervened upon before people died and were displaced. It's time to start addressing safety concerns for the wellbeing of tenants, and not just let them be used when landlords want to chase people out of buildings.

Re: “Corporate Beer Overlords AB InBev To Open Golden Road 'Craft' Beer Garden in North Oakland

isnt this great for craft beer entrepreneurs. More breweries being bought should provide more capital back to the investors and entrepreneurs which in circle can invest in other ventures. Dont see the big problem here

Re: “Fire Destroys West Oakland Apartment Building. Multiple Rescues Reported.

After I reported that the fire sprinklers in my unit were painted over by my landlord + a full dozen other building violations the city didn't fix and of the problems. They then assured me that Oakland's Building Department would begin doing preventative inspections to protect its citizens. Lets ask how many of those have been accomplished and to what end.

Re: “The Wolf in Oakland Modernizes a Cal-Cuisine Legend

Tommy: I found the patio to be quite loud, so you'd be better off requesting a table inside, perhaps further back away from the doorway (where there are sometimes groups of people waiting for a table).

Re: “The Wolf in Oakland Modernizes a Cal-Cuisine Legend

Thanks for another well-written review. Would it be possible to add a sentence describing the noise level? I frequently go to restaurants with my parents, who are a bit hard of hearing, and it can be difficult to find a spot where we can easily converse. Thanks.

Re: “Corporate Beer Overlords AB InBev To Open Golden Road 'Craft' Beer Garden in North Oakland

The problem here is that ABInBev buys up distributors in order to destroy the channel for independent craft brewers to get their beers distributed. This is completely unacceptable and any ABInBev owned and operated business should be boycotted.

Re: “Corporate Beer Overlords AB InBev To Open Golden Road 'Craft' Beer Garden in North Oakland

The concerns are legitimate.
The craft beer movement has been one of the most exciting pushes away from factory food back to local craftsmanship, community values and a resurgence of beer culture in this country lost since before prohibition. When the largest multinational beer corporation tries to pass as part of the authentic local brewing community, that is not just a cute marketing tactic, it is strikingly lopsided and cynical competition for the up and coming brewers rooted here. It's a tactical move to pull apart the famous cooperation among the independent brewers. Beer monopoly dressed up in a shipping container is not good for beer, not good for Oakland, not even good for Oakland business. Score one for Brazilian-Belgian multinational ABImbev, though. Here comes the fake authenticity blueprint ready for every cool town in first American then elsewhere.
