Triple Rock has a selection of easily 10+ beers of varied styles all brewed on site at Shattuck Avenue in Berkeley. The beers range from 4-6 dollars and mostly all come in a pint glass. For an experienced beer drinker, the beers here aren't going to blow you away, however, they are highly drinkable and decently priced. From the dozens of times I've been to Triple Rock, I would summarize my experiences by saying that you get decent microbrew beer that comes with a relaxed and intellectual atmosphere.

The food is moderately priced and can be described as above average bar food. I'd recommend eating at Triple Rock if you don't feel like walking around Berkeley to find something better.

One word of warning: Thursday nights is the "Monkeys Head" special and the place gets extremely packed with college kids trying to get hammered.

I visited Triple Rock in Berkeley yesterday and I like the place. It reminded me very much of the Big Time brewpub in Seattle -- then I learned that the two places are affiliated! Upon my visit, they had 13 house beers as well as 9 guest taps available. The beers I tried were really quite good; I'd definitely recommend checking out Triple Rock if you're in town. Service was decent enough; I also had lunch which was quite good.
