Presented by Drake's Brewing Company and Bike East Bay, Session Fest returns on Saturday, May 25th from 1-5pm to Oakland's Jack London Square! Join 30+ 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. All proceeds benefit the good folks of Bike East Bay in their local advocacy efforts to bring about better, safer biking for all.

Attendees will receive one signature tasting glass and ten tickets, each redeemable for (1) 5oz pour from any brewery of their choice. These are some of the best session beers California has to offer! Entry is FREE, so bring the whole crew to enjoy the sunshine, live music, delicious food, family-friendly games and prizes, a homebrewing demonstration by the Bay Area Mashers and FREE Bike Valet for anyone riding in.


Plan ahead and save money! Pre-sale tickets are $35 (pending availability, same package will be $40 at the door). A limited amount of Early Bird tickets are available for only $30! Will Call opens at 12:30pm, beer starts flowing right at 1pm. 

Session Fest is open to the public of all ages but you must be 21+ to purchase glass and beer tickets. Have your ID ready at the entry. Dogs on leashes allowed and welcome! Tag @drakesbeer and use #SessionBeerDog to show us how your pooch enjoys the day for your chance to become next year's mascot.
