First Friday

NEXT FIRST FRIDAY

Bring your friends and family to Drake's Barrel House on November 2nd, starting at 4pm, to celebrate Garfield Elementary School and Alameda County Community Food Bank! We're hosting a block party of epic proportions to support their mission to build caring, responsible citizens, and to work together to create a positive place, full of hope and opportunity, for every child. Proceeds from beer sales and ALL donations at the door will go to Garfield Elementary and ACCFB.

GENERAL INFO:

  • $5 per person voluntary donation, to the non-profit organization we are supporting, at the gate. (Children with their parents free)
  • $18 for a Drake’s tasting glass and 3 tokens for 3 full pours. Additional tokens can be purchased separately ($4 each, with net proceeds going to the non-profit).
  • Feel free to bring in your own previously-purchased Drake’s glassware to use. Other glassware not accepted.
  • Great food from local food trucks (or our fundraiser group) available for purchase. From BBQ to Korean to Paella, there’s something different (and delicious) every month.
  • Please park in the main West Gate Center lot, in front of Walmart & Sports Authority, and walk back to the brewery. First Friday takes up the front parking area of our Barrel House taproom.
  • 32+ taps flowing, pouring year-round beers, seasonals, specials, firkins, and anything else we’re brewing up that month.
  • 21 and over please, except children under 16 with their parents, but please, leave your pets at home.
  • Please do respect our neighbors and their customers in the West Gate Center.
  • Feel free to bring your own lawn chairs or other seating to make yourself comfortable (tail-gater style!).
  • The Barrel House is open for normal service from 11:30am-2pm on First Fridays.
