Oakland United Beerworks and other small local craft brewers work together to promote the Craft Beer Industry through collaborations on production, sharing of knowledge and a spirit of community. The Jack London Brewing District was forged by a common sense of community by the 4 breweries in the District:  Federation, Independent, Original Pattern and Oakland United Beerworks.  The Oakland Beer Drinkers Association includes other brewmasters in the Greater Bay Area and works to unite beer drinkers and the breweries they love.

#nofilterbananasplitbock

NOT AVAILABLE

Brewed in collaboration with Arne Johnson of Marin Brewing Co., this is what happens when a couple of old school brewers get drunk in Denver and plan a collaboration.  After tasting a few dozen beers at the Great American Beer Festival, what started out being a classic German Weizenbock became a Banana Split inspired brew.
First off, we agreed that beer is our favorite dessert, and neither of us like sweet beer much.  So it ain’t sweet, it tastes like beer, and the flavor additions are subtle!  German Weizen Yeast gives us banana esters.  Chocolate wheat malt and TCHO cacao nibs give us chocolate flavors.  Add a little caramel malt, vanilla extract and cherry juice and whaddaya got?  #nofilterbananasplitbock #oldgermanbrewersrollingoverintheirgraves #reinheinsgawhat?
