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.
