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!

Barrel Reserve Buzzerkeley Release w/ Calicraft

Thursday, November 13 2014 at 6:00pm

Come join us and Walnut Creek's finest, Calicraft Brewing Company for a night of variants of Buzzerkeley Sparkling Ale!

From Calicraft -

"Buzzerkeley is beer meets wine. Dorm room meets ivory tower. In the spirit of Berkeley, it’s in a whole new category. We call it Sparkling Ale. With a spicy-fruity nose that’s never in the air. California Starthistle honey gets almost completely fermented by Champagne yeast for an intriguing, dry finish. It’s our limit-pushing tribute to the clandestine beer-crafting that began in a UC Berkeley dorm room, and nearly got us kicked out."

Not only will we be pouring the classic Buzzerkeley, we will have TWO wine barrel aged versions! To further add to the list there will be a few specialty one off Calicraft beers on draft and cask, as well as other staples from their stellar liquid catalog.

We will be creating some delicious sweet and savory house made food pairings for the Buzzerkeley beers and also offering flights.

You can expect a brewery presence as well so come on out and enjoy an excellent evening with some of our favorite craft beer out there!

Pouring -

Buzzerkeley Barrel Reserve (Sauvignon Blanc)
Buzzerkeley Barrel Reserve (Zin Barrels w/ Zin Pomace)
Cask TBA
