First Friday


We like to mark each First Fridays with a party to support our local community. With year round and specialty beers on tap, music on the speakers and great food from a local food truck, the night takes on the vibe of a fantastic monthly block party with all our friends and neighbors. All are welcome to come and mingle outside and enjoy this San Leandro tradition.

Next First Friday

This month, January 6th at 4pm, we’ll be teaming up with San Leandro Family Service Counseling & Resource Center provides affordable high quality, professional counseling services for individuals and families. Your entire donation at the door, and a portion of beer sales all go to supporting San Leandro Family Service Counseling & Resource Center mission.
