On Tuesday, January 26, Comal will welcome brewmaster John Gillooly and owner John Martin of Drake’s Brewing to feature a selection of small batch beers paired with dishes by Comal’s executive chef Matt Gandin. Drake’s Brewing Co. is an urban craft brewery located in San Leandro, Calif. that has been dedicated to making the highest-quality, hand-crafted ales and lagers since 1989. Drake’s Brewing has become known for consistently producing a wide variety of craft beers from classics like IPA and Amber to innovative creations such as Hopocalypse Imperial IPA and a growing collection of artisan barrel-aged and sour beers. As one of the original craft breweries in the Bay Area, Drake’s has been at the forefront of the craft movement working to educate the community about what it means to brew and enjoy quality, full-flavored beers. In addition to Drake’s, John Martin owns legendary brewpubs Triple Rock and Jupiter, both Downtown Berkeley neighbors of Comal. Like previous special events, the SF Beer Week Dinner with Drake’s Brewing will be held in Abajo, Comal’s private dining room.
