We stopped at Jupiter on the way back from our trip to San Francisco. They had about 15-20 beers on tap, 9 of them being their own. I have to tell you, I really enjoyed my experience at Jupiter. The wait staff was very attentive at the late hour we were there and the beer was quite wonderful. They also carried some of the local beers in the area.

The bar/brewpub has two floors and a great outside patio that is perfect for big groups of people. We sat upstairs since it just happened to be raining outside.

I want to definitely hit up Jupiter again. It is actually one of my favorite stops, minus the Toronado in San Francisco which is pretty hard to beat.

Oh yeah, after tasting about 6 of their beers (which they were really good about) I ended up ordering about 3 Quasar Double IPA's that night...excellent beer and boy oh boy was I a happy camper leaving that night.

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.
