This place is soooo great. Anytime I’m in the east bay I always try to make a trip here. I avoid oats as well as gluten and the brewer always lets me know what beers use oats and which do not. Their sour beers are my absolute favorite. Food is all gluten free too!

We love this place ! Great folks working there and amazing food! Delicious, fresh and flavorful! It’s contactless ordering. Open seating , inside and outside dining. Clean bathrooms! Friendly staff! Have a water station, and board games. Great selection of beer. The Brunch cider is yummy and my fav. The waiter told me they come out with new beers bi-weekly. Thank you guys for being all gluten free.💜

Pretty good beer with nice variety. Only thing I didn’t love was the contactless ordering. Something about being able to talk to someone about the beers is nice for someone from out of town. Overall, good spot for a GF pint.

Update: TLDR: I'm tired of begging my friends to eat food they don't like so that I can 'feel normal' by going to ANY restaurant eating food I don't even like.

They have gone downhill in the Kitava menu and prep technique. I go every week for pub quiz. The fish has been soggy, the plantains too green to eat, and the boring tacos fell apart. I tried contacting the Kitava chef's about low fat options, and they insist highly heated palm oil is a healthy fat. It's not - especially is heated up.

I'll be eating at home before pub quiz from now on. Still love the staff. Great pub quiz!

So nice to have a 100% safe spot. The bowls were a little light on the meat, so order double meat if that’s your thing.

A friend of mine told me about this place so I drove over to meet him for a beer and food, and oh my, I am smiling just thinking about it. Now I want to find out who they distribute their beers to so I can go to those bars. Super clean good looking place in a sweet part of town. Please open up in SF!! SF Sucks for GF!!! Anger!

What a find! Every beer brewed here is gluten free. This was my first time finding a gluten free Hazy IPA and a GF chocolate porter. Both were delicious. My husband who isn’t GF couldn’t tell the difference. They also have a dedicated GF restaurant on site too called Kitava that was wonderful too. The fish and chips and general Tso’s chicken were our favorite.

Finding this brewery after getting diagnosed with celiac disease has been huge! As a big beer drinker losing beer was more sad than losing pasta but this beer tastes great. It’s real beer not the other gluten free beers that don’t have even close to the same flavor. Great job I’m a big fan.

I tried most of the menu! Kitava never fails me. I tried the Brussels sprouts, the loaded fries, chicken nuggets, and fish and chips. I also tried every beer available plus the guest taps. The beers were phenomenal, you can tell how much time and effort goes into crafting the beers. This place made me forget (I never actually forget, don’t worry) that I have celiac disease. It was carefree, fun, and delicious with amazing service.

Amazing 100% gluten free brewery- the first in California. The beers are great!! Wouldn’t even know they are gluten free. And the food from Kitava is such an exciting addition to the East Bay. I’m already a regular.
