Pyramid pub at Oakland International needs a makeover; G-B is decent, but tiny

Found myself at Oakland International twice in the last week, once in the old terminal flying Jet Blue to Boston and this week in the newer, Terminal 2 flying Southwest to Philadelphia. Each terminal has a craft beer pub.

Terminal 1 has a Pyramid pub, Terminal 2 a new Gordon-Biersch. They’re both very small, put the Gordon-Biersch Pub, like everything in Terminal 2 is brighter and much more interesting. My only disappointment at G-B was they didn’t stock their new Dunkleweizen,which I truly love, or Blonde Bock, my other fav.

They’re both tiny. The Port of Oakland, the airport operator, needs to tour other airports. No comparison. The two Oakland pubs are tiny.

    I also killed some time at the GB pub at Oakland Intl, but I will never do it again, because everything they serve is ridiculously overpriced. And considering that GB Maerzen is one of my favorite American brews, I would say they must’ve gone out of their way to make sure everything was waaaaay too expensive… garlic fries were good tho…
