Drake’s 27th

facebook_2016-07-22You guys remember that time we turned 25? Yea, awesome shindig. With all the construction and whatnot, we kinda had to skip right over 26 and since we were pretty sad about it, we’re making up for it this year. This is your invitation to attend our even-bigger-than-last-time-celebration-of-Drake’s 27th Anniversary Party on Friday, August 26th!

Our San Leandro brewery parking lot will be abuzz with a party of epic proportions. Get a first taste of this year’s “Aroma” brews, try some of the ORIGINAL Drake’s beers from 1989, witness firkin tappings galore and sample new beers we guarantee you’ve never see before. Don’t miss our Meet The Brewers booth with special timed tappings served up by our brewers featuring just about every rare barrel-aged and sour brew we can dust off from the cellar. Also, our Drake’s Alumni booth will be showcasing former Drake’s brewers including special release brews from Faction, Henhouse, Triple Rock and more! We’re firing up the Hop Volcanos, some might say just to prove that we actually use these vaporizers for hops…and only hops. Speaking of hops, hop on the free shuttle running from San Leandro BART we’ll make sure we get you home safely! Your ticket includes:

  • Unlimited Tasting of all Drake’s brews and Alumni Guest Brews
  • Music by The Sam Chase and Girl Six (Prince Tribute Band)
