5 things to know about UoB

Family-Owned and Locally Operated. University of Beer (UOB) was founded by Nate at the young age of 24. Alongside his wife, Melissa, both actively participate in the business and are responsible for the creative décor. The couple is proud of UOB's independent growth without investors, which enables them to prioritize their team and guests. 

Seven Homegrown Locations. Since opening in Davis in 2012, UOB has expanded throughout the Greater Sacramento Area. We support our communities by sponsoring local events, hosting fundraisers for schools and sports teams, and contributing to noteworthy causes. 

Wide Variety of Rotating Beers. Our tap list is refreshed daily with high-quality, unique brews sourced from over 400 breweries, featuring both local and award-winning options. 

Chef-Inspired Cuisine. Nate, an accomplished Thai chef with a fine dining background, takes immense pride in our locally sourced, house-made dishes that offer a quality dining experience in a relaxed atmosphere. 

We Love Dogs and Sports! UOB's pup-friendly patios welcome dogs to join their owners, while our TVs always feature favorite sports channels and local team games. Join us for watch parties during big games to share the excitement. 

Our Story

About Us


We aim to build a great and enduring company—the kind our people are proud to work for, and our guests can’t stop talking about.


Keys To

Our Success

The restaurant industry is an honest one. Mishandle a guest’s food or drink, and they won’t be back. Success will only occur if we consistently provide legendary hospitality, the kind of unique and genuine sort of personal care and attention that our guests tell stories about.

To accomplish this goal, we orient ourselves toward the following three fundamentals:


Certified Staff

UoB bartenders are Cicerone Certified Beertenders, a credential which ensures that the team member serving your beer is fully trained on the fundamentals of beer styles and flavors, proper pouring technique, and how to care for our equipment to ensure our guests are enjoying their beer as it was intended to be served by the brewmaster who created it.

Our Core Values

Our core values embody our culture, spirit, and dedication to building a great and enduring company. They influence every decision we make and form the foundation of our measurement of success.


Excellence Is In The Details

Excellence occurs when we commit ourselves to doing ordinary things extraordinarily well.


There Is Always Room For Improvement

If we aim to create something great, we cannot stop at good enough.


Take Responsibility

Success and fulfillment only come after we decide to accept responsibility.


Complaints Are Opportunities In Disguise

If we truly resolve to create something wonderful, we must constantly seek negative feedback.


Learn Something New Every Day

Today’s thinking will not solve tomorrow’s challenges.


Leave Things Better Than You Found Them

We endeavor to add value in everything we do, rather than removing it.
