AUGUST FIRST FRIDAY AT DRAKE'S!
Drake's opens it doors (and parking lot) again for our first Friday of the month event. Food, music .... and beer! Join us! Starting at 4 pm we will have eight of our regular brews pouring, plus some great specials. It'll be Hops, hops, and more hops! Bass Akwards IPA, Aroma Prieta IPA. All pre-the Bistro's IPA Fest (maybe the Hopocalypse too!) Try'em before the Fest!
$5 Donation at the gate. 21 and over please. (Children, with their parents of course, are OK to enter.) $15 for a Drake's logo tasting glass and 3 tokens for full pours. More tokens can be purchased separately.
For Drake's Fridays, the brewery crew likes to have food available to the public that goes great with beer. This month, we'll have those awesome duo you see outside your favorite watering-hole at 2 am. Serving up great street food will be the ... TACO GUYS! The boys will be serving up delicious gourmet tacos, and at a great price. Check them out at http://www.facebook.com/pages/THE-TACO-GUYS/257824054004
Tours will be available by the brewers. Some tables & chairs will be provided, but as always feel free to bring your own seating if you'd like, tailgater-style!
A BENEFIT FOR THE SAN LEANDRO EDUCATIONAL FOUNDATION:
This event is a fundraiser is for the San Leandro Educational Foundation (SLED). Your $5 donation at the gate, plus the net proceeds of the beer sales, will go to supporting the programs of this great local fundraising arm for the San Leandro Schools. SLED volunteers will be working the gate, patrolling the parking lot and generally helping out. Drake's is proud to be working with non-profits and local community to raise money for great causes!
