Located in the heart of Downtown San Jose, Original Gravity offers 35 rotating taps of incredible craft beer, ciders and meads as well as a small but mighty bottle selection. We are constantly seeking out the best and brightest craft beer has to offer. Focusing our list loosely on 80% domestic and 20% imported craft, with attention to seasonal offerings as well. Local or abroad chances are you'll find it here.
Original Gravity prides itself on a welcoming environment for beer geeks to the craft curious alike. Order food and drinks at the bar, take a number, grab your beverage and a seat and we will find you with the grub.
Sun - Wed expect to find a seat, Thurs - Sat get pretty busy and our tables and our beer garden fill up fast. First come first serve, reservations for groups of 10 or more 24 hours in advance depending on availability.
We take craft beer very seriously but always aim to have a fun and informative conversation about it. We aim to share and teach without the snobbery, and find something new and exciting for you each and every time.

Alvarado Street Brewery has quickly risen to the upper echelon of the Northern California beer scene of craft drinkers and brewers alike for good reason; Their beers are exceptional.
Started in Monterey, CA by father and son John and J.C. Hill they quickly became known at their brew pub for their fantastic locally inspired fare and exquisite house brewed beers.
Already GABF Gold Medal winners in 2015, it became apparent very quickly that they would need more space and in just under two years of opening they have opened a taproom and brewing facility in nearby Salinas to meet demand and expand the brewing program.
We are proud to announce that we will be brewing a collaboration beer with Alvarado Street in honor of Original Gravity's 4 Year Anniversary to be released at this one of a kind Silicon Valley Beer Week event!
Expect an amazing pop up food menu and an absolutely stellar draft list for this very special occasion, hope to see you there!

Grand Rapid's Michigan' Founders Brewing Company was started in 1997 by two very passionate people in Mike Stevens & Dave Engbers. They have gone on in their nearly two decades of existence to become some of the most renowned breweries in the world making beer today.
From big bold and beautiful barrel aged offerings to some of the most well balanced, aromatic and flavor forward beers we have ever had the pleasure of trying, Founders is making truly exceptional beer.
You could imagine our excitement to learn they would finally be selling their liquid here in the Bay Area and Original Gravity couldn't be happier to host a Silicon Valley Beer Week event with them.
