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, April 14th from 12 - 6pm

On Saturday, April 14th we're partnering with Project Open Hand. Every day, Project Open Hand volunteers prepare and deliver 2500 nutritious meals and 200 bags of healthy groceries to seniors in the community and neighbors battling serious illness. Their mission is to nourish and engage San Francisco and Alameda counties by providing meals with love, and help sustain their clients through the challenges of illness, isolation, or the health challenges of aging.

In addition to their work within the Bay Area, Project Open Hand is a founding partner of the Food Is Medicine Coalition. The FIMC unites other nonprofit, medically-tailored and nutrition services across the country to advance public policy supporting access to food and nutrition services for neighbors with severe or chronic illness. Together, organizations within the FIMC promote research on the impact of nutrition on health and cost of care, as well as sharing best practices for providing nutrition education and counseling.

In 2014, Project Open Hand began working with UCSF for an intensive nutrition study aimed at demonstrating the health benefits of providing medically-tailored nutrition to people living with critical illness. Alongside UCSF medical staff, Project Open Hand provides meals and nutritional counseling and education, and monitor physical and mental health, doctor and ER visits, and nutritional status. Together, the UCSF and Project Open Hand teams intend to show the positive impact that healthy, tailored meals have on health and well-being, which in turn reduces medical costs.

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!


Please email with any questions. Cheers!
