Brotzeit-Lokal celebrates the spirit of Bavarian biergartens with local, sustainable German food and craft beers. 375 40th street, Oakland. Ca. 94606
Brotzeit Lokal is a Bavarian-inspired restaurant and biergarten with a distinctively Oakland flare. We're located on the Oakland waterfront and feature locally-sourced, house-made menu items alongside a unique draft and bottled beer selection. Brotzeit Lokal was created and built by wife & husband team Krista and Tony Granieri.. Brotzeit Lokal was inspired by the couple's love for the inviting, relaxing and family friendly atmospheres of the beergardens in Germany. We took over the old "Oyster Reef" building in October of 2012. While it had certainly had it's hay-day, it had been a run-down night club in a dilapidated building for several years. It had become a haven for prostitution and drug dealing and was a source of blight and crime in the neighborhood. The previous owners had been evicted, so they stripped and trashed the place. At one point it had even been slated for demolition by The Port of Oakland. We leased the building, quit our jobs and spent 6 months full time working on building our restaurant. We are proud to be a true, Oakland local family business. Built from scratch with our life savings, our own "elbow grease" and with the help of all of our closest friends and family members. We extend the warmest "thank you" to everyone who worked way too hard for way too little in order to make our dream into a place that we can share with our neighbors, friends and families. An especially warm thanks to Robert Legere, who worked harder than anyone and never asked for anything (but cold beer) in return. Cheers!
Show us your WURST! We miss seeing you... send or post cool pics of yourselves enjoying our food while social distancing and we'll be sure to re-post the best and the "wurst" ones....

If you haven’t made your way down here in a while, you’d barely recognize the area.
Much of the old 9th Ave. Port of Oakland Terminal has been transformed into a beautiful open space park.
And our friends at Rocky’s Market will soon occupy a part of the reimagined port building. Super cool and super exciting!

Boasting a distinct Oakland flare, our waterfront neighbor, Brotzeit Lokal is located at 1000 Embarcadero – next to our Brooklyn Basin neighborhood and a short stroll from our doors. We were able to get the inside scoop on popular dishes and best seat in the house! Read the interview on the Orion blog.

We are truly sorry to hear this news. The Original Rosamunde next to Toronado was a big part of Brotzeit Lokal’s inspiration.
In part, because of Jeff’s (Smiley’s) vision, and because of Dave’s (Big Daddies) belief in supporting new business in the Lower haight, we at Brotzeit set out to produce the best Würst in the bay (Oakland)
Prost to Rosamunde!.
