Of course the hopper loves a little good hop! Oakland has a new place for all things beer-related, with the brand-spankin’-new ~THE GOOD HOP~. It comes from owner Melissa Myers, who started working as a brewer 16 years ago. The concept is more taproom than bar, with 16 local beers on tap as well as hundreds (yep, hundreds) of bottled beers available to enjoy there or take home. Myers is excited to offer people the opportunity to learn more about beer and try lots of different kinds, some that can’t be found elsewhere. In the future, she also hopes to offer special events. Hours are Wed-Mon 3pm-10pm (closed Tuesdays). 2421 Telegraph Ave. at 24th St., 510-338-6598.
