Westbrae Biergarten believes in giving back to its community which is why we support local businesses, schools, and other establishments

We believe that quality and accessible education is paramount for a healthy, happy and thriving community.  In an effort to support local public education, we have teamed up with one of Berkeley's best local microbreweries, Trumer Brauerei Berkeley, as well as their local East Bay distributor, Horizon Beverage.  


Together, we will donate $1.00 from the sale of every 1-Liter Stein of Trumer Pils to the Berkeley and Albany Public School systems.  All donated funds will be split evenly amongst Berkeley's Cooking & Gardening Program and the Albany Education Fund.  Thanks for your support!!

The Albany Education Foundation (AEF) is an independent community-based 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to maintaining the quality of Albany’s schools and making them even stronger. Our purpose is to provide additional resources for programs in Albany public schools. AEF funds grants for individual classroom teachers, specialists, whole schools, and district-wide programs.

Albany Education Foundation grants impact every student in the Albany Unified School District, and support every curriculum area from fine arts to physics.


The BUSD Gardening and Cooking Program (GCP) engages students in hands-on instruction with gardening and cooking lessons. The program is woven into academic life district-wide to ensure the academic, physical, emotional, and social development of all students in BUSD. The GCP supports BUSD’s 2020 vision to close the achievement gap with an interdisciplinary curriculum that connects the academic classroom to the school gardens to affect three main areas of student development from pre-kindergarten through graduation.
