(Berkeley, CA) – As part of Downtown Berkeley’s “Winter Magic” seasonal programming, the Downtown Berkeley Association is excited to announce the launch of the Downtown Berkeley Brunch Walking Food Tour. The DBA has partnered with Bay Area food tour pioneers Edible Excursions to develop a delicious and informative walking food tour sampling the incredible diversity of the exciting Downtown Berkeley food scene.

Knowledgeable Bay Area epicurean concierges - many of them chefs and food writers; all of them knowledgeable locals - will guide weekly tours through Downtown Berkeley that stop at some of the most popular East Bay brunch restaurants. Food-loving guests will sample half a dozen generous dishes and drinks that tell the story of the local food scene. They’ll also have unique behind-the-scenes access to local chefs and restaurateurs who will talk about the award-winning East Bay culinary scene with a Berkeley perspective.

A sample line-up of participating Downtown Berkeley eateries will include:

More award-winning restaurants may also play in, including Comal, Butcher’s Son, Revival, Great China, Ipukku, Ippudo, and Arinell’s.

Public tours launch weekly on Sundays March 25th, 2018. Tickets are available at

“We are so excited to finalize this amazing tour and to offer it to people looking for a fun and delicious way to sample some of the best food in Berkeley,” says Lisa Rogovin, Founder and CEO of Edible Excursions.

According to John Caner, CEO, DBA, “Lisa and Edible Excursions have been amazing partners on this project and have expertly crafted a unique and authentic way for people to check out the diverse Downtown Berkeley food scene!”

The Downtown Berkeley Association is an independent nonprofit organization, funded by Downtown property owners, and focused on creating a welcoming, vibrant and prosperous City Center.

Locally-owned, woman-owned walking food tour company Edible Excursions is thrilled to introduce its newest culinary experience: the Temescal Beers and Bites walking (and drinking) food tour, the company’s first to focus on craft beer. The tour has been curated and will be led by Paul Bosky, a Temescal resident and longtime homebrewing enthusiast.
Guests will sample two to three fresh beers tastes at four stops, and have the option to buy additional Pilsners, Saisons, Kolsches, Dubbels, and IPAs as they roam. Food tastes may include beer-friendly charcuterie, pizza, gourmet popcorn, garlic “bombs”, and an inspired craft root beer float. Stops are subject to change, but may include Rose’s Taproom, a shiny new taproom gem in the heart of the district, Hogs Apothecary, a neighborhood pub and taproom sporting at least 33 California craft beers and a snout-to-tail approach to food, Temescal Brewing, the first commercial microbrewery in the neighborhood, Arthur Mac’s Tap and Snack, an outdoor beer garden and eatery footsteps from MacArthur BART, and Lanesplitter Pizza, a classic spot for craft beer and food.

Public tours launch August 2017 on Sunday afternoons, 1pm-4:30pm. The tour will travel along Telegraph avenue between 51st Street and 40th Street, and along 40th Street between MLK Blvd. and Broadway. $110 per person covers all drinks, food, and taxes.
