Golden West Tour

Visit Breweries in Oakland and Berkeley

Oakland was at one time one of the largest beer brewing cities in the country until Prohibition ended the city’s golden glow.  But thanks to several microbrewers it is buzzing again. For the last few years Oakland and Berkeley have emerged as a craft beer goldmine and the location of some of the best microbreweries, brewpubs and beer bars in the Golden State.  

This tour showcases classic beer styles, hidden gems in the local craft beer scene and good times to be had by all.

Cost: $89.00 per person
