As previously reported on tablehopper, Sierra Nevada is joining the Bay Area microbrewing scene with its own taproom in West Berkeley. The new place, called the ~TORPEDO ROOM~, is now open, with 16 taps offering some of the brewing company’s harder-to-find offerings. Look for the Barrel-Aged Torpedo Extra IPA, which is aged in whiskey barrels with Citra hops, the Narwhal imperial stout, or one of the other ever-changing selections. The options are listed here, and they’ve got a spiffy machine filling growlers, so you can plot what you want to try out and take home. While there isn’t a full menu, you will find some snacks to go along with flights of beer. Hours are Tue-Thu 11am-7pm and Fri-Sat 11am-8pm. 2031 4th St. at Addison, 510-647-3439.
