An ambassador for craft beer in Berkeley, Calif., Fieldwork Brewing Co. recently expanded to seven locations throughout northern California with a new taproom officially now open for business at Town Center Corte Madera in Marin County. Fieldwork’s latest outpost opens following the brewery’s recent announcement of its Sacramento taproom tripling in size to nearly 5,000 sq ft in spring 2020. The Fieldwork Taproom at Town Center Corte Madera features a 2,400-sq-ft indoor taproom and outdoor seating.
The grand opening of the Corte Madera locale took place on Saturday, Feb. 8. Brewing well over 500 unique beers since opening its West Berkeley brewery in February 2015, Fieldwork brews with as much a sense of purpose as a sense of place as they honor northern California’s magnificent outdoor landscapes with an array of idiosyncratic beers in constant rotation on the tasting menu. The brewing team focuses on innovation for its roster of signature IPAs, double IPAs, lagers, pale ales, sours, stouts and onward.
Fun fact: All seven Fieldwork taprooms are within a 200-mile radius of its West Berkeley brewery to ensure only the freshest beer is served to its customers while being conscious of its carbon footprint.
The Fieldwork Taproom at Town Center Corte Madera also debuts a new food program developed by San Francisco chef Jeffrey Amber, culinary director at Fieldwork Brewing. Lauded as a Rising Star Chef by the San Francisco Chronicle, Amber joins the Fieldwork Brewing team after his work as executive chef at Bi-Rite, culinary director at MIXT, executive chef at Chow, among leading other restaurant ventures. For the Fieldwork Taproom menu at Town Center Corte Madera, Amber sources organic ingredients from Bay Area farmers to serve seasonally-focused dishes and support the local sustainable agricultural ecosystem.
The centerpiece of Fieldwork’s food menu is Neapolitan-inspired pizza cooked with organic flour from Central Milling (Logan, Utah) and fresh whole peeled organic tomatoes sourced from Rob DiNapoli (Los Gatos, Calif.). Winter vegetables and artisanal meats shape the opening menu with eight different pizza styles. Starters include many health-conscious options, and a children’s menu is available as well as dessert.
“We are excited to open the Fieldwork Taproom at Town Center Corte Madera and bring our fresh, locally brewed beer to Marin County. We’ve always wanted to offer high-quality foods and the Town Center locale is a great environment for us to introduce Jeffrey Amber’s menu. It will be a fantastic destination, and we are pleased to be joining so many complementary merchants,” said Barry Braden, cofounder and owner of Fieldwork Brewing.
