    Meet California’s Most Exciting Thought-Leaders

    Beer expert/overlord William Brand reports that after less than a year of business, The Trappist will be expanding on its tiny Old Oakland storefront: "Chuck Stilphen, who co-founded this very authentic, Belgian-style pub with Aaron Porter, says they've leased the adjacent 1,000 square feet of the turn-of-the-century building they occupy at 460 8th St. Plans are to create a bottle shop at the rear selling mostly Belgian beer and American craft beer. The front will be a pub, specializing in craft beer." The expansion will also allow a small kitchen, so there'll be a food menu too. [WOT, photo]
