Meetings & Groups
Oakland’s brewers are rooted in the spirit of the city’s earliest manufacturers, but this new breed of makers is developing flavor and style combinations that are making them stand out in the increasingly crowded world of American craft beer. The Oakland Ale Trail, developed by Visit Oakland in collaboration with a variety of partners from Oakland’s craft beer industry, celebrates the strength of the Oakland’s craft beer community.
Grab your passport and go! Visit all of Oakland's brewery taprooms and earn a free Oakland Ale Trail branded growler! More of a wine drinker? Not a problem. Just head over to our Oakland Urban Wine Trail page to learn about ways to explore our wineries.
