Fieldwork Brewing Company
“Bars and breweries could and should be their own categories at this point. East Bay has an incredible assortment of both — and distilleries — a combined top three can’t cut it. Additions: Cato’s Ale House, St. George Spirits, Fieldwork, Prizefighter.” — Nosh reader
The newest brewery and taproom to hit West Berkeley’s “Drinks District,” Fieldwork brewing is a totally chill, low-pretension spot to sip on some of the most well-crafted beers around. The taproom sits at Sixth and Harrison; indoor seats boast a prime view of brewing tanks but the outdoor tables are just as pleasant when the weather is warm. Leading the beer program is Alex Tweet, formerly of Modern Times Beer and Ballast Point Brewing, both in San Diego, and he is doing a stand-up job. We are fans of Fieldwork’s Fetch Pale Ale and Shoreline IPA, but wouldn’t say no to anything they’re pouring. Fieldwork Brewing is at 1160 Sixth St. (at Harrison Street), Berkeley. Wheelchair accessible. Connect with the brewery on Facebook and Twitter.
