Enjoy the Clear Skies while they last. This clear but juicy IPA is on the menu in Berkeley, San Mateo, San Ramon, Napa, and Sacramento today with kegs headed to Monterey soon. "Clear Skies was one of our first clear-but-juicy takes on IPA we ever brewed; bridging sub-styles with uncharacteristically low bitterness, a semi-heavy and sticky body, a huge tropical aroma, and a fairly clear appearance. The complex hop aroma is a balancing act between farm-fresh fruits like honeydew melon and ruby red grapefruit, blended with tropical guava and a resinous pine character that sticks to the palate. Its British base malt contributes a clean doughy character that subtly travels along the flavor profile start to finish, and its light carbonation keeps it stuck to your palate like its creamy cousins in the Northeast." #fieldworkbrewing #eastbaybeer #craftbeer #ipa #clearipa #clearskiesipa

Just a glimpse is all you need to tell there's a kettle sour on tap. Vanillaberry rejoins the menu today at each of our taprooms. Come in for a pint or grab some beer to go and stay dry from the rain. "A tart kettle soured ale with loads of blackberries, raspberries and vanilla to taste just like a fruit parfait meets homemade pie." #fieldworkbrewing #eastbaybeer #craftbeer #vanillaberry #kettlesourale #sourale

Come join the fun this Saturday with a new Double IPA, Simcokomo, making its debut. On tap for your drinking pleasure in Berkeley, San Mateo, San Ramon, Sacramento, and Napa with kegs headed to Monterey soon. "Simcoe and Motueka hops take this Double IPA where we want to go with a huge citrusy blast we haven't experienced since we were kids drinking 5 ALIVE straight from the carton. This pillowy bodied DIPA with a delicately malted backbone drips notes of passionfruit, lime zest, lemon candies, tangerines, and smaller hints of that classic Simcoe grapefruit. This is a flavor that just works; whether that's in this juicy Double IPA, a bitter westcoast, or splashing against ice in a cocktail shaker on a beach in Jamaica." #fieldworkbrewing #eastbaybeer #craftbeer #simcokomo #doubleipa

The outdoors are calling. Outdoor Hoppy Pilsner is back and on tap in Berkeley with kegs headed to our other taprooms soon. Stock your coolers for you adventures to go. You can pre-order crowlers and have them ready for easy pickup at any if our locations. Check out fieldworkbrewing.com/pre-order. "Outdoor was designed with two things in mind, to be a refreshing and excessively crushable Pilsner to be enjoyed in the outdoors; as well as having assertive aromas of fresh cut grass and freshly trimmed buds. Up front this Pilsner delivers a classic and crisp aroma that quickly transitions into a well manicured hop aroma that is equal parts grassy and floral as they are dank and sticky. Restrained on bitterness with a lightly grainy and cracker-like malt profile, Outdoor's hop character is complimentary without being brash or overwhelming as beers containing the moniker of "hoppy." Easy drinking while remaining a labyrinth of flavor, Outdoor Pilsner works as hard as possible at being a pick-up truck full of classic Pilsner character perfectly balanced alongside new school American hops; creating our Fieldwork take on our favorite historical style."

It's been two and a half years since we released Bad Conduct, which makes this batch extra exciting for us since now we got to blend together three different years of its base beer for its 10 day nap on a bed of toasted cocoa nibs before heading off to cans next week. Stay tuned for release details #fieldworkbrewing #eastbaybeer #craftbeer #badconduct #chocolatemapleimperialbrown #brownale #someothergoodiestoo

The King presides. King Citra is on tap today at each of our taprooms. Enjoy a pint in house or stock up for the game tonight and the week ahead. "The clock strikes noon as King Citra awakens in his parents' basement with only one thing on his mind, battle. He straps on his cardboard chainmail, arms himself with his pool-noodle broadsword, grabs his brown bag lunch, and heads to Ohlone Park to continue with his campaign. With a towering aroma of mom's fresh squeezed orange juice and tangerines freshly picked from the backyard, no one will be competing with the king today. A thick and full mouthfeel creates an Orange Whip-like profile that sticks to the palate with a refreshingly dessert-esque fervor, slowly giving way to a soft bite of carbonation. As the sun sets across the horizon King Citra fires thunderbolt after thunderbolt at every taste receptor till they are overwhelmed and he struts away, crown atop his head, still reigning supreme over his Empire of Double IPA." #bayareabeer #craftbeer #eastbaybeer #fieldworkbrewing #norcalbeer #kingcitra #doubleipa #hops #citra

Dreaming of lazy days ahead. New Dreams is our latest IPA featuring Galaxy and Mosaic hops. On tap today in each of our taprooms to sip, linger, and enjoy. "It wasn't long ago that us brewers would dream of getting to sign contracts for hops that in today's climate are already considered passé; and in less time than it took Walter White to break bad, we're flying from Washington to Tasmania to select some of the raddest hops we never thought possible in Galaxy and Mosaic. As the old guard falls this new wave of hops crashes on the shore and leaves behind its flag stuck in the sandy beach with empty pints scattered and still wreaking of their tropical notes of pineapple, papaya, passionfruit, blueberry, white wine, honeydew melon, and the slightest hint of the devil's lettuce. With the subtlety of a keytar in the string section of the Sydney Opera House New Dreams is all about the hops; a nice but simple malt profile stays out of the way of these juggernauts of the hop world and leaves a full mouthfeel with very little sweetness so you get all the juice without the syrup." #bayareabeer #craftbeer #eastbaybeer #fieldworkbrewing #norcalbeer #newdreamsipa #ipa #hops #galaxyhops #mosaic

Pullin up this weekend is Hazy Train IPA. Back on tap and ready to roll in Berkeley, San Mateo, San Ramon and Napa with kegs headed to our other taprooms soon. "All aboard!!!!! I...I...I...IPA it is a changin’, haze is the new black, henceforth Hazy Train will be crowned the Prince of Dankness. Pale in color with a blizzard of haze, there is no apology for its appearance. Fresh juice notes jump out of the glass and jump on your palate like they're taking stage at Wembly, followed by sticky dank hop and bright citrus aromas. Flavor is weighed down heavily with fresh cut start fruit, honeydew melon, grapefruit, and a zip lock freezer bag of the highest grade weed your roadies could score. The slightly velvety mouthfeel makes all those flavors merge and play together like a supergroup without it ever getting too bitter and going off the rails. Feel free to crush your pint of Hazy Train with reckless abandon and revel in its juicy nature and hop character that is cranked up to 11; just do yourself a favor and don't pee on the Alamo." #bayareabeer #craftbeer #eastbaybeer #fieldworkbrewing #norcalbeer #hazytrainipa #ipa

Happy Mother's Day to all of the mothers out there and especially to our mom's. Come celebrate with us today. Mom deserves a beer or two! Cheers! #bayareabeer #craftbeer #fieldworkbrewing #eastbaybeer #mothersdaybeer

Anyone feeling nostalgic and ready for a trip down memory lane? We got something clear, bitter, and resinous that just might hit the spot for you. Shindo Westcoast IPA is on tap today in Berkeley, San Mateo, and San Ramon with kegs headed to our other taprooms soon. "The link between your sense of smell and memory is a truly remarkable bond that cannot be understated. Shindo personifies just that in a way few of our beers can. IPA is as unrecognizable today as the original cast from All That; so we decided to do a hop-fueled 10 year challenge. Brew up an IPA that would bring us back to 2009; a time when Taylor Swift was a country artist, Twitter wasn't an app for delivering presidential tirades, the TV gods blessed us with the perfect that is RuPaul's Drag Race, and IPA's were equal parts bitter, resinous, and clear. Just put your nose up to a glass of Shindo and revel in its delicious obscurity and let it take you back to the simpler times of beer; when citrus and pine reigned supreme and classic styles were just called "beer." #bayareabeer #craftbeer #fieldworkbrewing #eastbaybeer #shindoipa #westcoastipa #ipa

PSA: We are excited to have the City of Berkeley begin construction of a sidewalk on Harrison Street between Fifth and Sixth Street. When completed, the sidewalk will increase public safety and accessibility on our block. Additional bike racks will be installed and a loading zone will be marked which will make it easier for drop off and pickup at the Taproom. The project will take five to six weeks to complete, so we appreciate your patience with the dust and smaller number of available parking spaces in the neighborhood during this time. In addition to making the block safer we are also excited to be able to increase our outdoor patio area once the sidewalk is complete. Please email [email protected] if you have any questions or concerns. #gilmandistrict #berkeley

We'll be canning up our second release of Mallow Gold Marshmallow IPA on Thursday 5/9. Stay tuned for the Online Pre-Sale announcement. "Mallow Gold is what you get when you merge 5 pounds per barrel of marshmallows alongside 5 pounds per barrel of Citra hops. What comes out is a massively aromatic IPA with huge notes of fresh orange zest and sweet marmalade that nonsensically work in perfect harmony with the powdery soft and moderately sweet confections. Since the marshmallows are boiled instead of toasted over a fire we used a deliciously kilned base malt that perfectly mimics the roasty toasty blistered flesh of marshmallows resting above a bonfire. Vanilla beans simply help in bridging the flavor of malt and oats to marshmallow and hops to create this bizarre synergy or flavors. Mallow Gold takes the flavor combination of orange and cream to version 2.0, with no fruit, just the best Citra hops we could find and the maximum weight of marshmallows we were allowed to buy from our online restaurant supply company"

Celebrating some of our favorite hops we've created New Dreams IPA with Galaxy and Mosaic. Available this Thursday in Special Release 16oz Cans. Keep an eye out for the Online Pre-Sale announcement. "It wasn't long ago that us brewers would dream of getting to sign contracts for hops that in today's climate are already considered passé; and in less time than it took Walter White to break bad, we're flying from Washington to Tasmania to select some of the raddest hops we never thought possible in Galaxy and Mosaic.

Introducing a new creation, Danger Cake, a Barrel Aged Imperial Milk Stout available for Online Pre-sale this Thursday in Special Release 16oz cans! Keep an eye out for the Pre-Sale announcement tomorrow.

“Danger Cake is a blend of Imperial Milk Stouts that have been aged in Widow Jane Bourbon barrels and then blended with a slew of ingredients from our pantry till it melds like the perfect cake, balanced with spice and flavor without being too sweet or stodgy. Loads of coconut, peanuts, cocoa nibs, and nutmeg get toasted by hand and added to the beer alongside Madagascar vanilla beans and local honey till all flavors become one single harmonious batter. The heart of this cake is its fresh and spicy nutmeg, not the boldest flavor, but certainly the central flavor which everything else builds around. Playing of of the earthy nutmeg is hand toasted Georgia peanuts that not only contribute a thin spritz of oil that attacks the head of the beer, but adds a fresh peanut character nothing else we have tried can provide and pairs perfectly with the toasted coconut and chocolate. To get all of these flavors to play nicely with these amazing bourbon barrels we aged Danger Cake on thick and juicy Madagascar bourbon vanilla beans to bridge the flavors of this confectionary influenced beer with the oaky vanillin notes of the barrels. While all these flavors are pinging off your palate like a box full of hornets and the spiciness and nuttiness is in its post sip dissipation, a hint of that honey sticks to your lips with just the slightest sweetness." #bayareabeer #craftbeer #fieldworkbrewing #eastbaybeer #adventurestogo #preorder #imperialstout #barrelagedbeer #dangercake #quadcanrelease #mallowgold #newdreams #kingcitra
