Drake's BrewingWhen does a “First Fridaynot happen on the first Friday of a month? For SLDA member brewery Drake’s, it happens in July. Why is this happening,  you ask? The first Friday in July is the long-celebrated and widely-recognized Fourth of July: fireworks, parades, cook-outs, and more. Says Drake’s:

“To avoid conflicting with the everyone’s patriotic fireworks and BBQ plans this Independence Day, Drake’s is moving its July First Friday benefiting the Boys & Girls Club of San Leandro, to the 2nd Friday of the month, July 11th. Drake’s Barrel House, however, will be open on the 4th of July to satisfy holiday beer needs with kegs, bottles, and growlers to go.”

That’s right, Drake’s First Friday will be held (with appropriate pouring, tasting, and educational community support) on the Second Friday, 11th July 2014. Will you join us there?
