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.
