I walked here in the pooring rain from the Downtown Berkeley BART station, only about six blocks away, walked into a crowded place and sat at the only seat at the bar, had two beers while visiting, their Stonehenge Stout and Titanium strong ale, both were okay but not great, the atmosphere was a bit weird with a very mixed crowd and did not seem like much of a beer establishment, even though it was one of the first brewpubs ever in California, there was also a lot of college kids eating lunch, place seemed a bit run down and was not the cleanest, beer selection was quite weak and I was not impressed with their house brews, only seemed to have about a dozen taps, service was pretty slow and was expected with the amount of people in there, but still it could have been a whole lot better, place was also on the more expensive side, I bet their Firkin Fest and Sour Night, and other events are lots of fun but this place by itself on just a normal day was quite disappointing, the food looked pretty good but I had eaten at Jupiter before walking over, which I ended up going back to after seeing this place, probably would not go back here unless there was some kind of festival that I was really interested in, might be worth checking out for its historical value alone though if you happen to be in the area

I have known about his place for years but had never been to it as it's a bit of a haul from my residence. After a bad experience at Barclay's, a beer bar across town from Triple Rock and much easier to get to for me, I decided to try it. I wish I had always come here. The extra travel time is well worth it. Food is very very good, tremendous burgers for one. Beer selection is small at times and there is no cask, but they do have the beer engines, just not working right now. The IPA is great and I like the Dragon's Milk which is a reddish ale. I expect all their beers to be solid. Very friendly employee's and we have been treated well all times. So long Barclay's, you have lost us forever. Going to keep coming here where we are not short poured and we are treated in a style befitting regulars that we are fast becoming here. Support this small brewery!
