Founded in 1989, Drake's is one of the nation's earliest urban craft breweries. Drake's is located in the heart of the industrial maze of San Leandro - brewing out of a former Dodge Motor Car assembly plant.
They have some of the most unique brews in the Bay Area and are most well known for their Drake's IPA, Drakonic Imperial Stout, Denogginzer Imperial IPA, and 1500 Pale Ale. They recently opened a new tap room and often have food trucks by their brewery.
