“He was a wise man who invented beer.” — Plato

The highly anticipated grand opening of the craft beer taproom The Cooler will take place at 11 AM on Saturday, June 11. The taproom is located at 1517 E. 14th Street, between Baskin Robbins and Le Soleil in the heart of Downtown San Leandro. The Cooler offers a unique experience in San Leandro, catering to the exploding community of craft beer enthusiasts, and curating its selection from only local brewers.  In addition to 25 varieties
of craft beer across 40 taps, The Cooler will offer wine, an array of bottled craft beer, kombucha, and perhaps a few other surprises. While The Cooler will not serve food, customers are encouraged to bring in food from nearby restaurants.  The Cooler is also the first San Leandro business to install a receiver for the Downtown Wi-Fiber, providing free Wi-Fi and ample power outlets throughout.

The beer menu has been carefully crafted to provide an impressive lineup of options for every craft beer lover.  Expect this lineup to consist of beers from regional and independent craft brewers, of course including San Leandro’s own 21st Amendment, Cleophus Quealy, and Drake’s.

After its grand opening, the Cooler will be welcoming thirsty San Leandrans and visitors from 11 AM until 11 PM on Sundays through Thursdays, and from 11 AM until midnight on Fridays and Saturdays.

  5. Donna Chang says:

    Glad to hear they will be serving Kombucha (hopefully on tap). Looking forward to it.

    • The Cooler says:

      Hi Donna! Yes, our terrific kombucha is on tap and ready for you to come try! It’s currently a light, refreshing kombucha by Revive Kombucha in Sonoma County. See you soon!

      From their website:
      Back when Revive Kombucha started, we put a lot of time and hard work into building something new. Then someone gave us a family recipe for a restoring tonic. It was super refreshing and, well, revivifying. We loved it and used it as the inspiration for Ascend. It joins the smooth energy of white tea with cleansing Lysine, immune-boosting vitamin C and live kombucha cultures, brewed one fresh batch at a time.

    Woohoo!! San Leandro. Home of Drake’s, Cleophus Quealy, 21st Amendment, The Vine and now The Cooler, complete with super fast wifi. SF has gotten so ridiculous, all the cool kids are ending up here. Bring it!
