Jupiter has a staple of about 10 house beers which are locally brewed. Besides their Quasar Double IPA, the house beers are low alcohol % and meant to accompany their food, which is mostly pizza. Jupiter also has a guest tap list which is usually a great selection of top notch california microbrews. Jupiter is two stories and has an outdoor area which has live bands a few nights a week, which is usually a great atmosphere. Everything is priced decently and the pizza is good restaurant quality pizza for the price. The best thing about Jupiter is the guest tap list which often brings me by for a beer or two when I find myself out and about enjoying Berkeley night life.

This place is constantly over crowded with nowhere to sit or even stand. I wish they had a hostess so this wasn't an issue. Otherwise, if you find yourself there when you can snag a seat, it has a great vibe and is a very unique setting. Service hasn't been great, but the beer selection is solid and they have a long and good food menu.

Easy access from the downtown Berkeley BART station. Great vibe with the old feel to the place. The server was great, the food great, and the beer good!

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.
