Beer flights take place at Extreme Pizza in Alamo every Sunday–Wednesday in June and July. There are two seatings each day, one at 5 p.m. and one at 7 p.m. Up to five parties of two–four people will be accommodated at each seating, so be sure to call Extreme Pizza in advance to reserve your spot. After the flight, each pair will receive a souvenir stainless stee growler, which can be taken to the Schubros Brewery Taproom in San Ramon and filled for an additional $10.
While most 21-year-olds are content to just sit in a bar and drink beer, Mike Johannsen was a bit more active about his newly legal status. As soon as he came of age, he started brewing in his dorm room at CalPoly San Luis Obispo. Over the years, he has explored almost every angle of the business, from equipment maintenance to cellaring, packaging, and quality assurance. In 2013, he founded Schubros Brewery alongside Ian Schuster, a London Business School grad and craft beer aficionado.
In the short time that Schubros has been operational, they have already done a lot to distinguish themselves from other breweries. For starters, all their brews are organic: varietals include Diablo Sunrise, a chocolate-orange imperial stout, and 680 IPA, a mahogany ale with notes of caramel and toffee. Schubros also gives 1% of their profits to various local organizations. Customers can go online to vote on where the money should go each quarter; options include environmental groups, school districts, and fire departments.
