Fieldwork Brewing Company is the newest entry amongst the expanding ranks of local beer makers in the Berkeley area. On 6th street near Gilman, the brewery is a large open warehouse filled with stainless steel tanks, shiny aluminum kegs of various sizes and plenty of brewing paraphernalia. A tasting room with german beer garden tables at one end represents the public side of the business. Five beers are currently on tap with more on the way. No plans to feature guest taps, but the growler program of reusable bottles (qt. or 1/2 gal. sizes) filled with their beers makes this a good location for take-home beer in addition to being a nice place to sit and drink while inhaling the grainy aromas of the brewery in action. The beers are well wade and tasty, with plans to change offerings on a regular basis. There is food in the form of meat and/or vegetable pasties which I will try next time. The staff at Fieldwork are friendly and enthusiastic. This looks to be a new and welcome destination for my local beer appetite.
