Barrel House

Located in the gritty environs of industrial San Leandro, at the West Gate Shopping Center, Drake’s Barrel House is our onsite brewery taproom and retail store. It's a no-frills, warehouse-style tasting room set amidst hundreds of wooden barrels and offers 24 different Drake’s beers on tap. Choose from our flagship core beers, nitro and cask selections, hard to find seasonals and specialties, and a variety of sour and barrel-aged beers. Taster flights, growler fills, six-packs, 22oz bombers and kegs are also available. Be sure to grab delicious tots, burgers and other bites from our Brew! Kitchen.
