Presented by Drake's Brewing Company and Bike East Bay, Session Fest returns on Saturday, July 23, 2022 from 1-5pm to Oakland's Snow Park (Lake Merritt)! Join local craft breweries as they share a wide range of thoughtfully crafted, full-flavored and super refreshing low-ABV brews, perfect for kicking back on a warm summer day. Enjoy live music and food trucks/food booths at our venue on the shore of beautiful Lake Merritt.

All proceeds benefit the good folks of Bike East Bay in their local advocacy efforts to bring about better, safer biking for all.

Ticketed attendees receive a signature 16 oz tasting glass and five or ten tickets, and tickets are redeemable from any brewery of their choice as follows:

1 ticket = half glass (8 oz) pour / 2 tickets = full glass (16 oz) pour

These are some of the best session beers California has to offer! Entry is FREE, so bring the whole crew to enjoy the sunshine.
