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, October 13th from 12 - 6pm

On Saturday, October 13th from 12-6pm we’re partnering with Building Futures. 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.

October is Domestic Violence Awareness month, and we’ll spend the month highlighting and supporting Building Futures’ domestic violence services. During our Saturday Social on the 13th, you’re invited to add to the What is Love? Healthy Relationships collage wall, and snap a selfie in the Love is Respect photo booth.

We’re also releasing a super special barrel-aged beer brewed by the women of Cleophus Quealy.

Domestic violence is the primary cause of homelessness for women and children in Alameda County. Building Futures recognized the need for domestic violence programs to complement their emergency and housing services, and in the mid 90s expanded to include critical shelter and support services.

Today, Building Futures operates two shelters, a domestic violence safe house, and permanent supportive housing. They provide a 24-hour crisis line, and a domestic violence outreach program that provides support in the community, at Building Futures’ sites, and on an individual basis. Through these services, Building Futures provides options and resources for women seeking alternatives to dangerous relationships and living situations.


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!
