Discover and Drink Craft Beer in the Jack London Squarqe District of Oakland

During this guided walking beer tour we'll say cheers to the newly founded Jack London Brewing District, the historic warehouse district and the heritage of Jack London Square. BUT this tour will end just in time for the annual tree lighting ceremony and festivities from 5-8pm! So wear your festive holiday sweater or Santa hat!

Visit two local craft beer establishments that provide a true taste of the neighborhood. All of your beer tastings and a pretzel necklace are included! Enjoy a variety of beer styles and take a behind-the-scenes brewery tour and learn how beer is made. It's the perfect day for anyone who loves craft beer, hanging out on the waterfront and the holiday season!

After making sure everyone has proper ID, you will learn about some of the people and events that helped establish this vibrant town. See why Jack London loved Oakland and why he chose to write and drink here in the saloons along the waterfront.

  • It's time for a delicious pint of a local craft beer in Oakland's first bar. Here you may enjoy each other's company, check out the history within its walls or sit outside and take in the scenery of the marina. Your guide is happy to share with you beer knowledge so you may know how it's brewed, and about the quality ingredients and craftsmanship that goes into every craft beer.
