Having left Minnesota, this has become my new favorite brewpub. The indoor seating is good but usually crowded downstairs. Upstairs it is usually pretty empty, though sometimes they require that you order food to eat upstairs. Almost invariably, though, friends and I end up eating on their large outdoor seating area. There are plenty of heaters for cold weather. There is a stage in the back of this area with a beautiful tree that adds to the ambiance. Their music is generally pretty good; this past fall I would go almost every Sunday for live bluegrass. Their own brews aren't spectacular (though I like their dry stout), but they usually have a great selection of guest brews. Also, they probably have the best food of any brewpub I have been to. Their standard pizzas are great, and they also have a daily special. They also have a really good warm brie and pesto appetizer. (882 characters)

Stopped in for dinner with a friend.
Huge beautiful multi-level patio out back. It's seat yourself, but after a few minutes of standing around we were able to find a seat. Comfy, communal, college vibe. Nice fountain and trellises.

Beer selection is great. I had the IPA and it was very good.

My pizza was solid.

Service was fine.

Definitely worth a stop if you're in the East Bay. Easy walk from BART. (407 characters)

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! (1,084 characters)

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. (344 characters)
