Triple Rock (Berkeley)

Triple Rock is a brew pub about three blocks north of downtown Berkeley BART on Shattuck. Triple Rock lays claim to being one of America’s first brewpubs, (opening just two years after Buffalo Bill’s in Hayward) due to the willingness of the City of Berkeley to permit this new kind of brewery business in 1985. They usually have about ten of their own award-winning beers on tap, casual pub food, and that classic pastime, shuffleboard. You may notice a little student influence from nearby UC Berkeley, particularly on “Monkeyhead” Thursdays.

Extras: when the weather’s good, go for the rooftop seating. Check their site for special event info, such as the beloved Firkin Fest. Another bonus: it’s close to Jupiter, another beer bar launched by the same founders.

  1. 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 Beer Week events on the main site, in the East Bay section. Wow.
