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, December 8th from 12 - 6pm

On Saturday, December 8th we are turning 4! From 12-6pm, as part of our 4th Anniversary Celebration we are partnering with Building Futures to raise funds for their Winter Warming Shelters.

For 30 years, Building Futures has provided resources, programs, and services to help residents in San Leandro and throughout Alameda County build futures free from homelessness and family violence.

Winter Warming Shelters are a part of Building Futures ongoing commitment to serve the underserved and homeless community of Alameda County. This December, they will open their San Leandro Warming Shelter and a new Alameda Warming Shelter. Winter Warming Shelters are designed to be a safe respectful place for people without homes to escape cold and rainy weather. Both shelters serve women and men. The shelters will be open on nights when the weather is forecast to be 40 degrees or colder or rain is predicted. Guests are provided with dinner, a place to sleep, and breakfast. The shelters are set to open the first week of December to the first week in April.

Additionally, we will be hosting a donation barrel in our tasting room, through December.

Donation requests include:

Sleeping Bags

Socks (new)

Underwear (new)








Other Anniversary Party features include: The release of Fourth Majeure, a limited run, barrel-aged Quadrupel, live t-shirt silk screening by French Prints with anniversary design by artist Alexsandra Chelini, and sweet, vintage tunes spun by DJ Danny Santos.

Please join us in supporting this great ‘cause and help us celebrate 4 years of making, pouring and drinking great beer in San Leandro!

How it Works

We’re doing things a little different during our Anniversary Party Saturday Socials. Please keep in mind that this event is a benefit for Winter Warming Shelters so we've tailored the event to better support our non-profit partner.

  • For $25, you'll receive a Cleophus Quealy anniversary glass 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 or glass back to future Saturday Socials. Menagerie members, you can bring this year's or last year's glasses instead of purchasing glassware. Cleophus Quealy branded glassware MUST be used for the duration of the event.

  • Tokens for additional beers can be purchased at $6 each. (Menagerie discount will apply!)

  • Children, dogs, and well-behaved adults are all welcome!
