Last Friday evening hundreds of people strolled downtown on a very warm evening during the Spirits Stroll and Love Our Island ArtWalk. All enjoyed premiums sips, delectable bites, live music, and art throughout the district. Thanks to all the sponsors, downtown businesses, and area distillers who participated. A big shout out to our partner Rhythmix Cultural Works. We’re planning our next Downtown Stroll in early March. Stay tuned!

Start your holiday celebration with the Downtown Alameda Spirits Stroll!
Handcrafted small-batch spirits and tasty bites await guests as they stroll through the historic district at the Downtown Alameda Spirits Stroll on Friday evening, November 2 from 6:00pm to 9:00pm.
Guests will have the opportunity to taste a variety of artisanal spirits from Bay Area distilleries paired with small bites at ten unique locations in Downtown Alameda. During the stroll, enjoy the sights and sounds of art installations and live music brought to you by Rhythmix Cultural Works and featuring a variety of local artists. Then complete the evening with a late-night meal or entertainment at one of the participating After-Stroll locations offering specials and discounts.
The “grain to glass” distilleries represented at the event come from different regions of the Bay Area including Hangar 1 from Alameda, Wright & Brown Distilling Co. from neighboring Oakland, and TreeCraft Distillery from Treasure Island. Other artisan distilleries are Seven Stills, Distillery No. 209, Raff Distillerie, Griffo Distillery, Spirit Works Distillery, and Alley 6 Craft Distillery. Each distillery will be providing a taste of a handcrafted small-batch Gin, Vodka, Whiskey or Rye.
Admission includes a collector’s glass, tastings and treats at ten unique pouring stations, and a commemorative guide. Tickets are on sale now for $40 each until October 25 and, if still available, increase to $50 after that date.
