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 student influence from nearby UC Berkeley, particularly on high octane “Monkeyhead” Thursdays.

There are several TVs that will show local sports.

In 2016, they re-modeled and expanded, opening a new spacious room and expanding the kitchen.Triple Rock Old InteriorTriple Rock New Interior

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