Ben and Nick’s (Rockridge)
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
Walking from BART: Go south on College Avenue past Keith Avenue. Ben and Nick’s is within the first block, on your left.
