Saturday Social at Cleophus Quealy

Saturday Socials are our way of giving back to the community that so enthusiastically supports us. On the second Saturday of every month, we join forces with a local non-profit organization to raise both funds and awareness for their efforts to make the Bay Area a better place. We invite our friends, neighbors, and beer lovers from all around to join us in having a great time for a great cause. 

SATURDAY, JULY 14TH from 12 - 6pm

Join us Saturday, July 14th from 12pm to 6pm as we partner with the Center for Urban Education about Sustainable Agriculture (CUESA). For the past 25 years, CUESA has been dedicated to cultivating a sustainable food system through their educational programs and farmers markets, including the Jack London Square Farmers Market in Oakland, plus the Ferry Plaza Farmers Market and Mission Community Market in San Francisco.

CUESA will set up a planting station so children (and adults) can decorate pots and bring home spearmint plants for a small additional donation. We’ll also host a pie baking contest for all you home gourmands--we encourage you to stop by the Jack London Farmer’s Market before July 14th to pick up some fresh, locally-grown fruits. Bring your pie to the brewery between 12pm and 2pm, and our expert panel of judges will declare a winner at 3pm.

We’ve also brewed a super limited beer for the occasion: Fermento Mora. This golden ale was barrel-aged with blackberries from Medina Berry Farms plus lavender and mint for a lightly tart and super refreshing brew that highlights the delicious fruit grown on this Watsonville farm.

There are only 10 cases of this brew available, and 50% of the proceeds from each bottle sold will go to CUESA.

Through free cooking demonstrations, youth programs, and more, CUESA’s educational initiatives support local farmers, grow healthy communities, and inspire all ages to participate in a healthy food system. CUESA’s free youth education programs, including Schoolyard to Market and Foodwise Kids, serve 3,000 Bay Area elementary and high school students each year, and aim to empower the next generation of healthy eaters.


How it Works


We do things a little different during Saturday Socials. Please keep in mind that this event is a benefit for local non-profit organizations, so we've tailored the event to better support our non-profit partner. 

  • For $20, you'll receive a Cleophus Quealy mason jar plus two tokens for full beers at the bar, and make a donation to our non-profit partner. You're welcome and encouraged to bring your CQ mason jar back to future Saturday Socials. Menagerie members, you can bring this year's or last year's glasses instead of purchasing a mason jar. Cleophus Quealy branded glassware MUST be used for the duration of the event.
  • Tokens for additional beers can be purchased at $5 each. (Menagerie discount will apply!)
  • Children, dogs, and well-behaved adults are all welcome!
