In 2020 Jessica Moncada-Konte and Kori Saika Chen, two lifelong Oakland residents and friends, opened Alkali Rye – Oakland’s Beverage Shop. Their goal is to provide Oakland with a warm and welcoming space that highlights underrepresented talent. The shop is built on the core values of empathy towards others and a passion for their craft. At Alkali you can find a range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages from wine, beer, coffee, tea, and more.
Bonus: You can also shop Alkali Rye’s collection of Jessica and Kori’s favorite drinkware.
