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'll 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. 

On Saturday, May 13 we're partnering with Walk Oakland Bike Oakland (WOBO) for a day of cycling-centric celebrations. The WOBO team aims to make the East Bay a safe and comfortable place for cyclists and pedestrians, working with community and city leadership to improve conditions for those traversing the Bay Area by foot and by bike. 

 

Festivities will begin with a ride lead by the WOBO team from downtown Oakland to our tasting room (time and starting location TBA). This ride is open to all cyclists, and will take riders through the scenic network of bike paths connecting Oakland and San Leandro. 

This event is one part of WOBO's local efforts during National Bike Month, a nationwide campaign to promote the benefits of cycling, including the annual Bike to Work Day on Thursday, May 11. Bay Area residents are encouraged to try the "no pollute commute" and enjoy "Energizer Stations" positioned around the Bay Area stocked with drinks and snacks, offering cyclists a chance to rest, chat with veteran bike commuters, and pick up canvas bags filled with treats and information.

Those unable to attend the ride are still encouraged to join us at the tasting room! The WOBO team will be around to talk about the future of cycling in the Bay, and we'll be accepting donations to help fund WOBO's continuing efforts for bike-friendly actions. 

Canasta Kitchen will be serving up their full menu of tasty Mexican food, and we'll have our freshest spring brews on tap for all you thirsty riders. We also challenge you to help break in our fancy new cornhole boards, or engage in a little friendly competition with our collection of board and card games. 

 

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. A portion of all mason jar and token sales will also be donated to the featured non-profit organization.
  • Tokens for additional beers can be purchased at $5 each. (Menagerie discount will apply!)
  • Children, dogs, and well-behaved adults are all welcome!
