Drake's Sold to Triple Rock

San Leandro's Drake's Brewing Co. was sold to Berkeley's Triple Rock Brewery on Monday, October 6, 2008, according to published reports.

Roger Lind started Drakes as Lind Brewing in San Leandro in 1989. The Rogers Co. has operated the company since it purchased it in 1999 until its sale to Triple Rock.

In the past few years, Drakes has held a "Beer Festival and Washoes Tournament" that raised funds for Jefferson and Roosevelt Elementary Schools in San Leandro.

Triple Rock proprietor John Martin says that Drake's won't change with the change in ownership. Drake's Brewery is located at 1933 Davis St., Suite 177, in San Leandro.
