Stopped here on a Saturday afternoon to sample some brews.
Place is kind of a pain to find, tucked behind a Wal-Mart, Drakes Barrel House is in a warehouse with a bar, fridge with bottles, some indoor seating and outdoor seating. It was a great day, so we sat outside on some chairs under an umbrella.
Quality is very good. I sampled three beers and they were all well above average, and a couple I thought were excellent. (Expecially the Alpha Session)
Service was great, the lady working the bar offered free samples of beers I asked about, and was friendly to talk to.
Selection is excellent. They had at least 20 taps with a great variety of beers, some sesssionable, strong, barrel aged, Belgian styles, etc... something for everyone here.
They only have beer, (except for a few snacks, like nuts, jerky, chips) but they encourage you to bring your own food.
Prices were average for the area.
All in all, a great spot. Very happy that we stopped here, and I would love to make it back some day.

Great place to visit. Awesome selection of beers to sample, more than I can sample in one visit. Nice to see a brewery with a variety of year round beers along with plenty of seasonal/rare beers to sample. Would love to visit again if ever in the area. Highly recommended for the average craft beer drinker to the beer drinker looking for something special.

Drake's has a tap-room located at their brewery in San Leandro. It's in a very hidden location, make sure that you read the directions on their website before trying to find it. It's behind a shopping center off of 880. The tap-room is located inside and they also have a large outdoor patio. Great selection, typically around 15-20 beers on-tap. Prices are $5-6 for a pint of their regular rotation and seasonals. They don't have food but they sometimes get food trucks, check their website for a schedule. A great spot to enjoy the great beer from Drake's.
