Pre-Play Brews at Berkeley's Jupiter

Sunday night was our time to see Berkeley Rep's very popular play, "Chinglish" which for us Mandarin speakers is a special treat.

Our decision to have a pre-play brew at Jupiter was a good one, I knew it the minute I saw their guest brews menu:

After several minutes of deliberation I finally chose the Drake's Occu-Rye since it was a first for me, but also because I like everything I've ever had from Drake's and it fits with my recent attempts to broaden my horizons, so to speak. I was not disappointed; very tasty, with a good hint of rye in the finish and very dry. Here's how the brewmaster describes it:

"Drake’s Occu-Rye- 6.1%, 32 IBUs- a light amber rye ale redolent of spicy, herbaceous flavors and aromas with a light toasted malt character and a clean spicy rye finish."

 Kay had her usual favorite stout, Old Rasputin from North Coast.
