Jupiter (Downtown Berkeley)

Jupiter serves their own craft brews plus a good selection of guest ales and beers, mostly from local brewers and 3 ciders from 35 taps including 4 nitros. They serve wood-fired pizzas and often have live music. They have a large outdoor beergarden with a wood burning “fire pit” on chilly evenings. This is a great stop before or after performances at the Berkeley Rep Theatre or the Berkeley Jazz School, and Jupiter also books good bands to play in their own beergarden area.

Extras: They are within walking distance of Triple Rock, the original brewpub by the same founders.

  1. […] Jupiter is the clear winner in that department, since directly to the photographer’s right when snapping this picture is found one of the entrances to the main Berkeley station, a simple staircase leading underground. […]

  2. T-Dawg Says:

    This place is literally 100ft (across the street) from the main Downtown Berkeley BART entrance. The house brews are alright, but the guest brews are what make this place stand out. I’m a hophead and I love that this place usually has 3-4 different IPAs and at least one IIPA.

  3. Jupiter and Triple Rock are both venues for SF BEER WEEK 2009. They are doing two barrel-aged festivals, a sour and another (bet on some whisky barrel effects!)

    You can find their events on the main http://sfbeerweek.org/ site, in the East Bay section.
