About Buck Wild Brewing

Located in Oakland, CA, Buck Wild Brewing has the structural bones of a building originally constructed in 1946 but has been fully renovated and refurbished, opening its doors in November 2020 for its modern purpose as a brewery and taproom. It still retains an old-world charm, from its location in the Jack London Historic Warehouse District to the taproom’s exposed ceiling beams that give it an industrial touch. Soft modern furnishings give the taproom a cozy, inviting feel that is perfect for your wedding reception or any other private celebration such as baby/wedding showers, happy hours, birthday parties, business/club meetings and so much more. Seating can be set up for up to approximately 100 guests throughout the venue (not all in the same room and in various seating options) and an additional 70 guests can be accommodated in the outdoor patio area (weather-permitting; uncovered). Buck Wild Brewing can provide a number of services to help you celebrate in style. You can opt for a full buy-out of the building for your celebration, which includes access to the taproom, lounge, boardroom, and patio or for smaller gatherings, the lounge/boardroom or outside patio tables are perfect rental options. On-site catering is available from the brewery’s kitchen partner, Kitava. This culinary team can help you to design a menu that suits the tastes and vibe of your event. Event rentals like tables, chairs, flatware and glassware are also available for use. Celebrate your special event surrounded by contemporary cool at this unique and modern brewery.

Unique setting, cool vibe, great food and drinks - An Eventective User from Orinda, CA

This venue has such a cool but sophisticated vibe. I am not gluten free and I don’t really drink beer, but the food is so delicious and there are plenty of drink options!

Unique and well run - An Eventective User from Oakland, Ca

The location is clean and comfortables stylish. The food was delicious and ready right on time. The hosts were very friendly

Yoga at Buck Wild - An Eventective User from Oakland

Buck Wild hosted an amazing yoga event inside the brewery. The space is incredible. The yoga, music and ambience were the perfect mix. Following yoga, we were treated to a cold beer /refreshment of choice and the most delicious brunch in their lounge. I would absolutely recommend this event to any yogi and/or beer enthusiast alike.

Excellent Group Social Location - An Eventective User from Moraga, CA

I went to Buck Wild Brewing with a large group of friends and the brewery was able to easily accommodate our large party. They had quick service, the beer was really good and the food was gobbled up as well. Easy parking and we had zero issues coming from the Lamorinda area. Very close from the freeway and really friendly social atmosphere. I highly recommend the brewery for a night out with friends or any corporate social (they have a great space for really large groups as well). Cheers!

Beautiful venue for so many events! - An Eventective User from Lafayette

This place is beautifully design, very classy but not too frou frou. Super nice owners and top notch service.

Awesome space and food! - An Eventective User from Lafayette

What a gorgeous space! Super welcoming staff, too. The food is incredible! I'm quite picky and absolutely love every item on the menu. Hard to believe it's gluten free. While I'm not a beer drinker, my husband is -- and he's ultra selective here. Happy to say the beverages got a huge thumbs up. Highly recommend this unique brewery with great atmosphere.

Love this beer! - An Eventective User from Lafayette, A

We go sometimes as it's the only place to get gluten free beer. Don't be scared of the idea, the beer tastes like great beer, and they have all types of styles. Also a great location with a great layout.

Perfect spot to relax! - An Eventective User from Walnut Creek

Buck Wild is a great spot to indulge in a libation and to enjoy some food with friends and co-workers!

Beautiful space, delicious food, and even better beer- gluten not included - An Eventective User from Lafayette, CA

Have visited this local, family-owned and run brew pub since its opening a year ago. The owners passion and high standards comes through in every last detail. Super great space to spend an afternoon or evening with family and friends, kids included. Such a gem.

Yum - An Eventective User from Rowayton, CT

GF for 14 years, hands down the best GF’r there is… but I’d still be loving this tasty beer even if I weren’t. Wish I was drinking one right now.

A great night out! - An Eventective User from Oakland, CA

Three of us attended and tried twelve flights. What fun! From pale and dry to fruity and wet. The snacks from Kitava were a perfect complement. Nice ambience, friendly staff. Dazzlingly clean.

Client Executive - An Eventective User from Raleigh

The gluten free beer healthy eating concept is the awesome. The atmosphere is fun and inviting!

Visited Buck Wild while playing some beach ultimate in Alameda. Was a little sandy but no worries, great atmosphere, beer (of course) and good food. Plus all gluten free which works well for me. Thx BW!
