Lost and Found puts an emphasis on the “garden” in “beer garden.” Ex-inmates from the owner’s gardening program at San Quentin plant vegetables in the Oakland plot, including tomatoes, potatoes, kale and legumes. The massive outdoor space has plenty of games and enough real estate for each group to have their own space. There’s no liquor, but the beer (like the food) shows an emphasis on supporting a local community—they fry their own chips with tortillas from across the street. That’s really what this place is about: a fun, safe, communal, family environment. Special events include a record swap and a bazaar with jewelry, art and clothing vendors.
