Downtown Alameda Business Association invites you to an evening out where you can learn the subtleties of these hand-crafted spirits as you have fun strolling up and down Park St. “We are a grain-to-glass distillery,” says Earl Brown, co-founder, Wright & Brown Distilling Co. “ We make small batch whiskey and rum in Oakland and started production in 2015 as Oakland’s first distillery since before Prohibition!”
Wright & Brown Distilling Co. continues to participate in the stroll this year. “We are very excited to be participating in the Alameda Spirits Stroll again. It’s a great way to get out and meet local fans of Craft Spirits. We love building community around locally made spirits and the Spirits Stroll is just a great party!”
Plan your stroll – see who is hosting and pouring spirits.

About the Art Walk
On Friday, November 2nd from 6-9pm, Park Street will come alive with Radical Beauty Part 6 featuring art and music from all corners of the world…and the East Bay. Rhythmix Cultural Works, the California Arts Council, the City of Alameda and the Downtown Alameda Business Association partner to present the sixth Love Our Island Art Walk.
Swirling planets, a miniature Victorian building and looming charcoal figures will occupy vacant storefront windows while sounds of the Bay Area Music Project’s youth orchestra and choir fill the night air. Intentionally scheduled in tandem with Downtown Alameda’s Spirits Stroll, attendees wandering along upper Park Street to Lincoln Avenue will be enchanted by music from Appalachia to the Middle East, with Bluegrass, West Coast Americana plus Latin and Brazilian jazz.
Thank you SF on the Bay partners!
