Drake’s First Friday (San Leandro)

Every first Friday of the month through November 16th.
Bring your friends and family to Drake’s Brewing every First Friday of the month to celebrate and support local schools and charities in our community. It’s our 14th year of fundraising and we’re keeping with tradition, while mixing up the format. No need to bring a glass or purchase tokens. Drake’s Barrel House will be operating business as usual with extra excitement! Between 5-9PM every First Friday, join us for a community block party, with beer, food, games, and music.
Support our local beneficiaries by purchasing a growler or crowler during the event, or ANYTIME during their selected month, and part of your purchase will go directly to the non-profit. Purchases made during the First Friday event count more towards each group’s goal. So be sure to support them with a purchase during the event, and continue your support with additional purchases all month long.
Representatives from each beneficiary will be onsite during First Friday events to tell you more about their organization and how you can help them grow. Be a team player and come drink for a good cause!
