Original Gravity Public House

Located in the heart of Downtown San Jose, Original Gravity offers 35 rotating taps of incredible craft beer, ciders and meads as well as a small but mighty bottle selection. We are constantly seeking out the best and brightest craft beer has to offer. Focusing our list loosely on 80% domestic and 20% imported craft, with attention to seasonal offerings as well. Local or abroad chances are you'll find it here.

Original Gravity prides itself on a welcoming environment for beer geeks to the craft curious alike. Order food and drinks at the bar, take a number, grab your beverage and a seat and we will find you with the grub.

Sun - Wed expect to find a seat, Thurs - Sat get pretty busy and our tables and our beer garden fill up fast. First come first serve, reservations for groups of 10 or more 24 hours in advance depending on availability.

We take craft beer very seriously but always aim to have a fun and informative conversation about it. We aim to share and teach without the snobbery, and find something new and exciting for you each and every time.

Hope to see you soon, keep it OG!

Sarah & Sopheak's Children's Future Int'l Fundraiser!!!

Saturday, June 20 2015 at 12:00pm

We are hosting two of our absolute favorite people and former OG employees to raise funds for their latest amazing charitable adventure!

Sarah and Sopheak left a lasting impression and mark on Original Gravity during their tenure here and when they asked us to host a fundraiser for their latest endeavor, we simply could not say no.

Once you meet them, you will understand why.

Leaving sunny California for the higher altitude of the Rocky Mountains and incredible Denver beer scene, this outstanding couple have decided to combine their unique passions, fantastic talents and energy to head to Cambodia and help build a sustainable and much needed youth music program!

Join us on this very special Saturday afternoon and enjoy 3 stellar beers from Santa Clara Valley Brewing (some of the very first beer poured brewed at their new brewery!!!) as we donate a percentage of proceeds towards this amazing cause.

Spread the word and see the link below for more program information and other donation options if you cannot attend, but we certainly hope to see you there!

Mission Statement:

We strive to empower youth through music and art as a means to revitalize culture lost during war, build future generations of community leaders, and end the cycle of poverty in Cambodia.

Our website is cfimusic.org There is a donation button on the website as well as more information about the program and our blog. A more direct link to the donation page is crowdrise.com/cfimusic

Fieldwork Brewing Meet the Brewer / Pairing Menu

Thursday, June 25 2015 at 6:00pm

Join us as we welcome the most exciting new Bay Area brewery, Fieldwork and their Head Brewer Alex Tweet to Original Gravity!

Founded in 2014 and open since April of this year, Fieldwork was founded in Berkeley, CA with a focus on creating exceptionally unique and honest beer.

If the name Tweet looks familiar, he is former Specialty Brewer for Ballast Point (having won their home brewing competition and taking 2nd and 3rd as well, naturally they inquired about his services) and helped get Modern Times Beer off the ground (serving as head brewer from batch 12 until leaving to open Fieldwork).

Fieldwork's beers so far have ranged from far-too-easy-to-drink IPAs, Saisons and Table Beers to Chocolate Milk Brown Ales and Coffee Infused Imperial Milk Stouts. Needless to say, their range is extremely diverse.

We will also be featuring a very special pop up food menu created in house by our very own Casey and Mitchell McMinn incorporating Fieldwork beer into the food for the ultimate pairing experience.

Come down to taste through this new, incredible brewery's current lineup and meet the people behind this glorious addition to the Bay Area beer scene, fun times will be had by all, absolutely not to be missed!

- Beer & Food Lineup TBA -
