Saturday Social at Cleophus Quealy

Saturday Socials are our way of giving back to the community that so enthusiastically supports us. Every month, we join forces with a local non-profit organization for a month long campaign to raise both funds and awareness for their efforts to make the Bay Area a better place. For the month we feature a beer in honor of our partner, collect  donations and host an installation on the work and needs of our partner. We invite our friends, neighbors, and beer lovers from all around to join us in a month of having a great time for a great cause.


This October, Cleophus Quealy will be joining forces with Building Futures!

Building Futures, a nonprofit organization founded in 1988, is based in San Leandro with programs throughout Alameda County. Through their continuum of care, they provide resources, programs and services to help Alameda County residents build futures free from homelessness and family violence. Their residential programs include the San Leandro and Midway Shelters (55 beds); Sister Me Home domestic violence safe house (20 beds); and Bessie Coleman Court (52 units of permanent supportive housing). They also provide a 24-hour crisis line; and a domestic violence outreach program providing support groups in our community and at their sites, as well as individual support and resources. In addition, their Housing Resource Center and Oakland Family Front Door provide case management and housing assistance to help individuals and families avert homelessness or become quickly rehoused after becoming homeless.

Help us help Building Futures by dropping by in the tasting room any time this month and ordering Strawberry Creme, our blonde ale with strawberries and lactose, and a $1 of all pints sold goes directly to Building Futures. We also accept straight donations if you wish to provide more funding for their cause!

And don’t forget, our Saturday Social to celebrate Building Futures for all they do will be held on Saturday, October 12th, from 12pm to 6pm!



On October 12th from 12-6pm, Building Futures will join us in the tasting room for our Saturday Social event. You’re invited to come by and learn more about their efforts and ways to help, talk to our partners in person, and join us in celebrating their efforts.
