One of the oldest brewpubs in the nation. Triple Rock has a nice vibe with assorted tables, a smalli-ish bar and a great outdoor patio on the roof. The patio is a hidden gem. Lots of wood on the walls, floor, bar, etc. Somewhat of an older building.

The beer is generally very good. IPAX is pretty much always on, a great IPA. Their standard rotation of house beers is solid, very well made. One thing that stands out about Triple Rock is that they are always making new beers. I've had over 60 of their beers over the years and I'm sure there are a number that I've never tried. They do a great job with their hoppier offerings and have been doing a single hop series over the past year that has been nice to try. They have also been barrel aging various beers at the Drake's facility over the last year or so and those are generally very good and a treat to try.

They really do change it up a lot with regards to new brews on tap. Kudos to Rodger Davis for this.

Triple Rock also puts on some pretty good yearly events, such as their Firkin Festival in April and their sour and barrel aged event in February

The food was good. One thing that is nice about Triple Rock is that they have multiple options for vegans. The vegetarian chili is usually pretty good but the recipe is always for changing for this item.

Service is good. Generally pretty prompt and the bartenders know their beer.

Definitely stop at Triple Rock if you are in Berkeley or the east bay. Just two blocks from the downtown Berkeley BART station.
