Located in a massive industrial mall, this place has over 20 taps. Custom flights available, priced according to what you get - so it can get very pricy if you pick lots of barrel aged stuff. The BA stuff occupies about 5-6 of the taps. They have a good truck upfront and a couple of vegetarian/vegan options. Interior is a warehouse / old-style pub feel. Service is decent, though the lines can be long. Worth a stop - very convenient stop before or after Oakland airport.

Have been here several times over the years and I thought I had already rated them, but no. Easy to find, off the 880, behind Walmart. Stopped by on the way back from a camping trip, Lagunitas was a zoo scene, had stopped at Moylan’s on the way up, so we figured the food looked good and the beer is always good (plus I’m a San Leandro native). Parked our truck an trailer over by Walmart and headed over with our big dog and found a table. The table service was already over so I headed in to get a couple of beers before ordering, Robustito and a special IPA, Triplicity. There was a duo playing music on the patio and a fairly good size crowd. One of the servers came over and we ended up getting our food through him, talking about beer, and he dropped off a couple of the sours they had on tap to try (Grandpapa Roy’s Peche and Too Many Candles). Food came, prepared out of a cool retro trailer parked out back, and was good, so i’d say overall, this place always delivers. I was impressed by their sours, looking forward to more. I did pick up a bottle to take, Papa’ Roy’s Peche. Corked sour 500ml for 18.99. Price seemed a little steep for a 500, but have not seen it anywhere else.

I like Drake’s beer, and when they have events here it’s awesome. However, when there aren’t food trucks and stuff, the food selection is nil. The place is usually pretty busy and there’s not a ton of seating, but there is some outside seating if the weather is nice. Some bottles to buy, growler fills, and decent prices occasionally.

(Visited 08/2014): Drake’s is located off the Nimitz Freeway on Davis Street, basically hidden behind a Walmart. Parking is available in any of the lots in the complex, as well as in a garage.

Once you do find it though it is easy to spot, being a large blue warehouse with a large logo sign and fermenters outside. The barrel room was closed during my visit for First Friday, so they had pouring stations and the garage doors open to serve beers. There was a cool festival atmosphere as a result, but I wasn’t really able to see anything other than the outside.

As for the selection, there were about 12 beers available for the event, including First Friday (which was sold out), Aroma Flora, Aroma Coma, 1500, Pork Pie Rye, Discovery Vienna Lager, Blonde, Hefe, Porter, Omega and Double IPA. All the beers I tried via the token system in use that day were good.

Service during the Friday late afternoon event was good at the pouring stations.

I did not have food on my visit, although there was a food truck there for the event.

All in all I was happy to stumble on a visit during First Friday and would like to visit again on a normal day to check out the rest of the operation. Regardless I had a good time.

A nice tasting room in the barrel room. Tables spread out throughout the room, also a patio. The prices (tasters) are on the high side but well worth it. Drakes makes some solid beers.

Stopped by for a few beers on my way through, tucked behind some big box stores. Great layout, nice outdoor seating area, big warehouse style tasting room with plenty of seating and nice bar area. Service was good, staff seemed to know about all the beers. The selection when I showed up was fantastic, BA Drakonic, 2 different aroma beers (one with NZ hops) and lots of other great offerings. Value was pretty good until you hit the top tier, $4 for a small sample, but oh well. Overall a great place, will come back for sure.

mrhoppy  (226) Santa Clara, California | July 28, 2013
Came here and sampled a bunch of beers. After sampling I went and asked the girl pouring beers she could give me a half pour of two barrel beers in one glass. She said no like the beers could not be tampered with. I said why not aren’t barrel beers usually blended anyway? She still said no. So I ordered one of the beers I wanted. Several minutes later she came over and apologized and said they could accommodate my request. What’s the big deal if I want to make a screwball concoction. I thought it tasted great! Cool place with great beer.
