Type: Bar, Brew Pub
Opened in 1986, Triple Rock is the oldest brewpub in the US that's still in operation, with the same owners, no less. They brew more than 40 beers through the year, with 10-12 on tap at all times, including the favorite Red Rock Ale, a hoppy amber ale. The ambience is typical relaxed brewpub – historic building carefully restored (in fact, it won an award for outstanding restoration from the Berkeley Architectural Heritage Association), an eclectic selection of tunes on the jukebox, and a variety of hearty appetizers and burgers. Don't miss the rooftop sundeck – it's ideal for lazing away a summer afternoon.

Berkeley's Best Bars: "Diet be damned - don't pass up T-Rock's infamous nachos to go alongside that pint."
Best for Berkeley's Best Bars Because: Head Brewer Jeff Kimpe is what makes this place so special and well worth a visit.
