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, June 9th from 12 - 6pm

On Saturday, June 9th from 12pm to 6pm, we’re working with the Alameda County Community Food Bank to raise funds and awareness for their ongoing efforts to help fight hunger throughout the East Bay. 

DJ Danny Santos will be spinning his vintage vinyl collection from 2pm to 5pm, and Canasta Kitchen will be serving up tasty tacos, flautas, and more. 

Food banks get a lot of attention around Thanksgiving and Christmas, but with the number of parents who rely on free or reduced price lunches provided by schools, the summer months are actually busiest for Alameda County Community Food Bank. Any financial or food donations during June's Saturday Social will go to help families provide healthy meals through the summer and beyond. 

We will also be accepting food donations from June 7th through July 1st. Bring your food donations to the tasting room and receive a discount on your tab. 

The most needed food items include: Canned tuna, canned chicken, natural peanut butter, nuts and beans, brown rice, quinoa, canned soup (low sodium), whole grain cereal, oatmeal (please, no glass containers)


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!
