Buffalo Bill's Brewery

Hayward, CA

Brews: TBA

 

Drake's Brewing

San Leandro, CA

Drake's Brewing is passionate about brewing with integrity and bringing people together over great beer. With the gritty, artisan spirit that embodies the aast bay community they call home, Drake’s has been honing the perfect union of hops and grain since 1989.

Fort Point Beer Co.

San Francisco, CA

Fort Point Beer Company is a New American brewery - the product of a thriving American craft beer culture, shaped by deeply San Franciscan values: quality craftsmanship and a spirit of innovation. They create balanced, thoughtful beers that reference traditional styles but are by no means bound to them. For them, brewing is the confluence of creative expression and refined technique. They want their beers to tell a story, inspire an idea, and be thoroughly enjoyable.

Brews: Kolsch Style Ale + Animal tropical IPA

Palmia

San francisco, CA

Palmia is not just a summer brew. It’s a light beer made by people who understand that having a good time isn’t seasonal and, most importantly, should never be bland. Palmia enters the market poised to take you in flip flops or high heels to the center of the party…because it’s all about attitude!

Brews: Palmia

 

Strike Brewing

San Jose, CA

Strike Brewing Company opened its doors at our South 10th Street location in San José in July of 2014. Their goal was to bring beer that was high quality, consistent, and innovative to a deserving San José which at that time was underrepresented in the greater craft beer community. Since their inception, they have won numerous awards and local and national competitions, collaborated with breweries and community groups, and established themselves as a local hangout with an extensive taplist.

2017 People's Choice Best Brew

 

After beer tasting at the Burger & Brew fest, attendees were invited to vote for their favorite brew.

The 2017 Winner?

Oakland United Beerwork's belgian dubbel with coffee

This rich and malty ale is an interesting variation of a classic Belgian Dubbel. Brewed with RoastCo Coffee from West Oakland, we added their cold-brewed Ethiopian Guji after the fermentation process to enrich this ale with its fig and blueberry notes. Perfectly complementing the dried fruit characteristics from the malt, the coffee flavor is subtle at the finish.
