Berkeley's newest lounge bar is Beta Lounge on Durant between Shattuck and Fulton. The lounge serves draft beer (Lagunitas IPA, Pyramid Hefeweizen, Stella Artois, and Deschutes Mirror Pond Pale Ale) and wines (like organic Bonterra Merlot). Happy hour runs from 4 - 7 p.m. with $3 beers and $5 wines. The menu is nicely varied; we really liked the guacamole. Also, we enjoyed sitting on the red couch.
