What we're about

(UPDATE: Since most of our members have been fully vaccinated, and local restrictions on social gatherings at the venues we typically use for our events are being relaxed, we are once again OPEN to new members at this time. We appreciate an attitude of respect for your Organizer(s) and fellow members, and are happy to finally be able to resume a regular schedule of (bi)weekly sessions to play. However, please read the Liability Disclaimer below before joining the group or attending any event. Be healthy, stay well, and PEG ON!)

Let's get together and play cribbage! Cribbage is a classic card game for 2 or more players. Meetups are fun and social, and twice a year we plan a tournament with a buy-in and prizes. We are now celebrating 5 years since our "Organizer Emeritus" Jodi started this "beer-and-cribbage thing" in Oakland!

Organizer Terry, with input from group members, plans gatherings every other week on Sunday afternoons (weekly from June to August), and we are open to holding summer weeknight sessions when we can enjoy the lengthier daylight. We rotate gatherings among breweries, brewpubs, restaurants, and taprooms in the East Bay, concentrated mostly in the Oakland/Berkeley/Alameda area. Favorite craft beer locations such as Jupiter, Mad Oak, and Temescal Brewing have outdoor seating and picnic-style tables that are perfect during the spring and summer, while other places like Alameda Island Brewing Company, Cornerstone Craft Beer, and The Fourth Bore offer cozy comfort indoors during the fall and winter months.

All members are welcome to suggest additional venues, days, and times. With a little notice, the group can gather 6-10 players. We provide all the necessary equipment (boards, pegs, and cards), so all you have to do is bring yourself, invite a friend, and have a good time pegging along with us. New players are welcome, so if you're ready to learn the best two-handed card game ever invented, we're ready to help you shuffle, cut, deal, discard, peg, and count your way into a lifetime of fun. Happy Pegging!
