As Cornellians, we seek to bond with each other in good times and tough times. Unfortunately, with the outbreak of COVID-19, especially in the Bay Area, in-person group gatherings have not yet re-started.
However, Cornell NorCal continues to present a robust calendar of virtual events on a monthly basis. Additionally, we are cross-posting highlighted events from other Cornell clubs on our page below.
Please check back in here, find us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/CornellNorCal/), or sign up for our newsletter to get regular updates on upcoming events.

    Private Tour & Exclusive 45-min Open Tasting.

Be the very first to taste Anchor's 2016 Christmas Ale!

Anchor is releasing 2016's Christmas Ale at the beginning of November and we will be the first to taste it.

The Christmas Ale recipe is different every year—as is the tree on the label—but it is always a winter-warming celebration of joy and the newness of life. We only have 30 tickets available, so make sure you are one of the first to sign up.

The evening will start with a Private behind the scenes tour of the world famous Anchor Brewing Company followed by exclusive first-look tasting session. Try any and all of Anchor's 10-12 beers on tap including Christmas Ale, other seasonals, and of course America’s First Craft Beer - Anchor Steam®.

Join Cornell Alumni for this private tour of the brew house, fermentation process, bottling operations and more followed by beer tasting and happy hour at one of the oldest breweries in the country.

Children are welcome on the tour, but you must be 21 to taste beer afterwards.
