OAKLAND, Calif. — Calling all Earth-loving beer geeks! Join the Organic Beer Revolution! On April 21st, Beer Revolution, Downtown Oakland’s most popular craft beer bar and bottle shop, invites you to celebrate organic beer and the brewers that make them! In honor of Earth Day, organic brewers from up and down the West Coast will be hosting their own “Organic Beer Revolution” at Beer Revolution, taking over its 40+ taps with a rebellious array of organic craft beer.
Same equipment, same process, same brewing talent required – the only thing that differentiates organic craft beer from its conventional counterparts is the earth-friendly agricultural practices used by organic farmers.
“Some people hold the misconception that organic craft beer is inferior to its conventional counterparts — which couldn’t be farther than the truth. Organic craft beer is just as delicious and innovative, if not more, as regular craft beer. My fellow organic brewers and I intend on proving this fact at the Organic Beer Revolution.” – Dan Del Grande, Bison Brewing.
The Organic Beer Revolution will start at noon on Saturday, April 21st, and last until every last drop of organic beer is consumed –or until last call– whichever comes first. The organic beer tap takeover will showcase a spectrum of beer styles from local Bay Area breweries, including Bison Brewing, Lucky Hand, Thirsty Bear, Mateveza, Santa Cruz Mountains Brewing and Uncommon Brewers — as well as a handful of organic beers from Northern California and Oregon breweries, including; Hopworks Urban Brewery, Butte Creek Brewing, Eel River Brewing, Commons Brewery and Fort George Brewery.
Several of the brewmasters will also be in the house, ready to answer any question, so come toast the men and women that continuously put quality of ingredients and the health of the planet before the bottom line. Mother Earth thanks you!

Angelo, it is really uncool to call all these breweries or their beers Organic. That designation means something. I am really surprised that the organic breweries participating are okay with how you folks are representing the conventional breweries along side them. I feel like it cheapens the designation and disrespects the effort the organic brewers go through to be able to call their beer organic. Please correct your post to reflect what is actually being celebrated. I am all for more breweries going organic but this is a miscatgorization.
Don’t worry – nobody is going to go to Oakland. Hell even the Athletic’s want out of there.
