Fieldwork Brewing Company, an envoy for craft beer and acclaimed by Men’s Journal as having one of the ’50 Best Beers in America’ (Oct 2018), expands its Northern California footprint to six locations with the opening of their new taproom and beer garden at City Center Bishop Ranch in San Ramon.
Brewing well over 400 unique beers since opening its West Berkeley brewery in February 2015, Fieldwork focuses on innovation for its ever-evolving roster of highly aromatic and well-balanced beers. Based on seasonality and consistent quality, Fieldwork forges its own path brewing beers they simply love to drink.
Walking into the West Berkeley Fieldwork Brewing is always a reliable welcoming and fun atmosphere
for visitors and Bay Area regulars. “I think what originally drew me into Fieldwork was their wide variety of North East style IPAs,” comments local fan Jamie Waldear. “They offer five to six rotating IPAs that they constantly alter to form new varieties of those beers. I think their end goal is to create beer with a fruit flavor, yet does not contain any fruit. We like to go to the West Berkeley place because it has a very laid back style and is pretty rustic and quaint. They have a variety of games that make it more fun to stay here and drink beer. Plus it is really convenient to get here for everyone and kick back after work.”
Fieldwork’s latest local outpost follows the brewery’s recent openings of European-style beer gardens in
San Mateo and Monterey. The new San Ramon location hails a 2,400 square foot indoor taproom and a 2,700 square foot outdoor beer garden.
The new Fieldwork Taproom and Beer Garden opened in the tri-valley area with upwards of 16 beers on the menu including a handful of library releases that will be exclusively available at the San Ramon location. The interior of the taproom features redwood for the bar and wall paneling that’s reclaimed from the roof of San Francisco’s Pier 31. The family and dog friendly beer garden includes two custom designed fire pits, natural gas heaters, and guests are welcome to bring in food from any of the fine restaurants at City Center.

“I grew up in the valley, says Barry Braden, co-founder and owner of Fieldwork Brewing Company, “and we have been searching for the ideal place to expand our presence in the East Bay. City Center is that place. It will be a fantastic destination and we are pleased to be joining so many complementary merchants.”
