Fieldwork Brewing Company has had an almost meteoric rise since officially opening its Berkeley taproom in early 2015. The brewery was immediately loved by locals for the huge tap list and innovative beers, and soon founders Alex Tweet and Barry Braden opened a Napa taproom in Oxbow Market, then another in Sacramento, and two more in San Mateo and Monterey last summer. “Four taprooms in one year is a lot. We’re going to take a little bit of time and let everything settle in—work on our operations, make service the best it can be,” says Braden.

Producing more than 200 beers in just about every style—popular brews include the Chocolate Thunder God imperial milk stout and Destination Unknown double IPA—each location features constantly changing taps including stations to fill growlers and 32-ounce cans for day-drinking on the go. “The key is being able to give our guests something new and different all the time,” says Braden. “That’s what craft beer is all about.”
