Temple Israel of Alameda


Did you know most beer is kosher by default based on the ingredients? Yes, it’s true. The one catch is that not all breweries can have a rabbi regularly supervise the production for an official designation, but the majority of beers can be considered “kosher-style.” Therefore, here’s another excuse to drink beer! Let’s celebrate beer coming of age (just humor us) at a “Beer Mitzvah” on Sunday, April 28, from 1:00 – 5:00 pm, at Temple Israel in Alameda, CA.


Breweries scheduled to participate are:

Alameda Island Brewing
Ale Industries
Crooked City Cider
Oakland United
Original Pattern
Shadow Puppet
South City Cider
2 Towns Cider

Your eyes are not deceiving you; this is an incredible line-up and we at Temple Israel feel VERY fortunate. Your entry donation enables you to unlimited pours to taste some incredible beer that is kosher-style or kashrut, as well as two very popular, locally crafted hard ciders.  Attendees also get to vote for their favorite beer at the event in a contest to determine “The Chosen One.” Don’t miss out!

Jewish music, food, activities and a bake sale will be on hand. Come hang out at this truly unique event and tell us you want this type of festival every year.

Your donation helps support Temple Israel’s school and programs as it begins to celebrate its 100th anniversary in 2020. Yes, a Jewish synagogue has been in Alameda since 1920; come check it out!

You do not need to be Jewish to attend. =)

Mazel Tov to these breweries!
