A pretty good brewpub. But since it is pretty close to Jupiter, I usually end up going there instead because I prefer the atmosphere and selection. All of Triple Rock's beers are pretty high gravity yet hide it well. There's a beer I think called Monkey Head Arboreal Ale, only served on Thursdays, that is around 9% so is popular for that reason (it might be really good too, but I haven't had it since usually the place is packed on Thursdays). Most of their beers I've had, though, aren't particularly amazing. Their scotch ale, the Tree Frog, is probably my favorite. Also, they usually only seem to have a few guest brews. Inside isn't bad; there are a couple of TVs, so it sometimes feels a little more like a sports bar than a pub, but they usually are muted. They have a nice patio upstairs, but there have been a number of times I've been there that it has been closed or reserved for some reason or another.

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.
