Join us September 22, 2024

Beer City is returning to Alameda Point in Alameda, for another full day of running, beer tasting, games, live entertainment and fun! Whether you come for the morning run or the afternoon beer festival — or both! — Beer City has something to help you welcome Fall the Alameda Point way.

Beer City Festival

Starting at noon, Beer City Festival kicks into high gear. We welcome you to drink deeply from over 25 beverage companies which will be serving a selection of beer, kombucha, and hard tea. Come and learn more about some local brewers you may know like Almanac, Alameda Island, and Faction and discover some new ones like our Sonoma friends Cuver, Third Street Aleworks and Lagunitas or our San Jose All-Stars, S27, Strike, and Umunhum.

Beer City Festival includes unlimited beer tasting, games, and live entertainment. Beverages are served in 7oz Beer City Festival tasting glasses for you to take home.

For runners, Beer City Festival tickets are available at 30% off.

Alameda Pint 10k/5k

The day starts with Alameda Pint, which includes 10k, 5k distances, as well as our new Questicorn – a unicorn-themed treasure hunt. The post-race celebration goes until noon and offers you a selection of brews as part of your registration.  Also, there will be bubbly water and sodas, as well as snacks for everyone.

Every racer receives a finishing medal, shirt, a special Beer City tasting glass. Questicorn questers receive a finishers medal and can purchase shirts separately.

The Beer Trail

Starting in September, prime your pump for Beer City Alameda with  The Beer Trail, a treasure hunt that takes you to Brewers and Taprooms all month. 

With each visit, you collect Beer City tokens, and get to try some of the brews which will be at the event. We send you clues about the newest locations by text. Text BEERTRAIL to 510-800-7688 to see!
