A Bottoms Up reader sent me a question (thanks Mark) about whether or not Drake’s Brewery in San Leandro (behind the WalMart) was planning to once more host the Friday open house and tastings from 4:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m. that they used to. I thought I’d share that information so everybody knows.
In case you didn’t know, several months ago Drake’s Brewery was purchased by Triple Rock, the Berkeley brewpub. I spoke to co-owner John Martin this morning and he told me they’ve been busy integrating the two businesses together and making beer. But they are planning on starting up the Friday tastings again shortly, hopefully as soon as the beginning of July. As soon as I hear they’re a go again, I’ll add them to the calendar so you know, too.
Also, if you tried to reach the Drake’s Brewery and heard a disconnect notice, here’s the new phone number: 510.568.BREW (2739).
