Cleophus Quealy is a small brewery crafting fine ales in the East Bay. We brew (and sometimes bottle) each small batch by hand, drawing inspiration from seasonal ingredients, favorite foods and drinks, or travels abroad. We strive to make the very best beers we can and to share our brews with friends, neighbors, and anyone passing through our industrial corner of San Leandro.
Our brewhouse is small, but mighty! Here we combine water, barley, and hops to hand-craft each small batch, seven barrels at a time.
At the heart of our brewery is our barrel program. We have more than 40 wine barrels that we use to age some of our rarest and best loved beers for anywhere from a few months to a few years.
Our Tasting Room
Our cozy tasting room is open Thursday through Sunday, and dogs, children, and well-behaved adults are all welcome. You’ll find eight frequently changing beers on tap, plus a few choice bottled favorites behind the counter. Our eclectic tap list offers something for everyone--hop heads, wine lovers, and casual beer drinkers alike can all find a new favorite brew.
You’ll find food trucks serving up a variety of delicious dishes every Friday and Saturday, plus live music every other Saturday. Check our calendar for details on what to expect in our tasting room!
