Fieldwork Brewing Company has announced that it will be expanding its space located in San Ramon's City Center Bishop Ranch, growing its taproom during a time when many businesses have been forced to reduce operations or close down altogether due to the coronavirus pandemic.
The Fieldwork Taproom and Beer Garden at City Center Bishop Ranch will add an additional 900 square feet of increased taproom space to the location, which once complete will feature a 3,300-square-foot indoor taproom and 2,700-square-foot outdoor beer garden, company officials said.
"We are excited to expand our indoor space at City Center Bishop Ranch to add 40 additional seats and a kitchen so we can offer our patrons high-quality foods from our culinary director Jeffrey Amber's new menu. City Center will be the latest Fieldwork location to feature our full menu, and we’re thrilled to be able to provide great menu items along with our fresh, locally brewed beer," said Barry Braden, co-founder and owner of Fieldwork Brewing Company.
Fieldwork has brewed more than 500 types of beer since opening its West Berkeley location in February 2015, with an acclaimed brewing team led by head brewer and co-founder Alex Tweet. Today the team focuses on innovation for its ever-evolving roster, which beer lovers can enjoy at the City Center location.
"Walking into Fieldwork Brewing locations is never the same experience twice with their ambitious brewing program featuring signature IPAs, Double IPAs, lagers, pale ales, sours, stouts, etc. Bay Area regulars and out of town visitors can always rely on enjoying an onslaught of beer varieties with the tasting menu in constant rotation. Some beers reappear and others never repeat," City Center staff said.
The Fieldwork Taproom and Beer Garden at City Center Bishop Ranch will have a varying selection of more than 18 beers on the menu.
The City Center location will also feature Fieldwork's food program by Amber including pizzas, salads and small bites.
"Fieldwork has quickly become a popular place for the community to meet and spend time. Everyone knows how good their beer is and we are excited that this expansion will allow them to introduce their food menu at City Center, which is equally fantastic," said Alexander Mehran, Jr., president and CEO of Sunset Development Company, owner and operator of City Center Bishop Ranch.
Fieldwork Brewing, which remains open during its expansion, is expected to unveil the finished product this spring.
