Ben and Nick’s (Rockridge)

A cheerful little bar and grill, with a small but great craft brew list, wine and soju cocktails, plus burgers and assorted pub food.

They are owned by the owners of Cato’s, but do not seem to have a website. Their pleasant bartender told us, “I don’t think we do. If you don’t find one, then we don’t.” So call them for beers on tap.

Extras: Ben and Nick’s is within one measly block from the station! Only Jupiter (in Berkeley) is closer to a BART exit.  It’s easy to stroll north about four blocks to Barclay’s for many more excellent taps and a different dinner menu, making Rockridge an excellent craft beer barhopping stop.

5612 College Avenue, Oakland (510) 923-0327

about a quarter mileWalking from BART: Go south on College Avenue past Keith Avenue. Ben and Nick’s is within the first block, on your left.

    Indeed it is. Nice little Pliny the Elder dessert, eh? Anything like it in Las Cruces? If so, we may visit sooner rather than later.

    They have a full bar, not soju. They may serve soju, but they have a full bar. The nachos are great.
