I literally walked out of the BART station and saw this across the street, I walked in and grabbed a seat at the bar and ordered a pizza as I was very hungry after a long morning, looked up at the board and saw a variety of guest brews and lots of house brews, I immediately ordered a Drake's Denogginizer, I ended up having their 18 Barrel IPA as well, then Quasar and a Moonlight Lunatic Lager when I went back, food was good and not that expensive at eight or nine dollars, their two IPAs I tried were pretty good as well, the place was really modern and close to the UC campus, nice garden in the back and located in a cool area, place was super clean, the upstairs section was neat and would be a fun place to go hang out with a group of friends, they had about two dozen taps total and they all seemed to be good choices, they had impressive guest taps from E.J. Phair, Moonlight, Deschutes, Speakeasy, and others, bartender was cool and kept asking me if I wanted to sample anything else, this is a place I look forward to going back to next time I am in the bay area, recommended

Second only to Triple Rock, Jupiter makes for a solid choice for grabbing some great beer and dinner whether you're with a large or small group of people. I haven't had many of their house brews, since it's hard to choose anything other than the Quasar DIPA and Red Spot. This place wins the contest for best-named barleywine, and last winter they made a really awesome barrel aged version of it! They have a great range of beers that will please hopheads and fans of tamer beers as well. Jupiter gets bonus points for keeping a solid selection of guest beers from local breweries like Drakes (try the denogginizer if you haven't), Moonlight, North Coast (Old Raspy), and even some stuff from Green Flash down in San Diego.

I recommend getting a table outside, as the beer garden is what gives Jupiter an edge over Triple Rock in terms of atmosphere. Live music & DJs pretty much every night, so that's nice. Pizzas are really good and they make vegan pizzas too! You can't go wrong with pizza & beer, and if that's what you're looking for in Berkeley then Jupiter's the place to go!

First off, this place is very easy to get to if you take BART. The station is right there. Nice interior with an old world prohibition type of feel at the bar. Outside in the back is very nice too. Beer is solid. Pizza is good. If you are visiting San Francisco and want to make a little East Bay trek, you can't really go wrong with this spot.
