An ambassador for craft beer in Berkeley, Calif., Fieldwork Brewing Co. is aiming to expand its Napa Valley location with a new outdoor beer garden and increased indoor taproom capacity at the Oxbow Public Market Annex (1046 McKinstry Street, Napa) in spring 2021. Fieldwork Brewing opened its taproom at Oxbow Public Market in 2016, which will remain open until the grand opening of its new locale.
At the adjacent Annex, Fieldwork will build out its indoor footprint to 1,450 sq ft with an additional 900 sq ft outside for the European-style beer garden. The new Fieldwork Taproom and Beer Garden at Oxbow Public Market Annex overlooks the Napa River and Oxbow Commons green space and is located next to The Fatted Calf and Model Bakery.
“We are excited to have this expanded indoor/outdoor space to present a Fieldwork environment that is more akin to our other larger Bay Area locations,” said Barry Braden, CEO and cofounder of Fieldwork Brewing. “Our goal is always to provide the best hospitality, a casual environment, and seasonal beers — as fresh as possible and directly from the source.”
Steve Carlin, founder and managing partner of Oxbow Public Market stated, “Barry and Alex always produce a terrific product and fun atmosphere. We expect their new space to be lively, comfortable and a major part of Oxbow Public Market for years to come.”
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 outdoor landscapes with an array of idiosyncratic beers. The esteemed brewing team led by Head Brewer and Cofounder Alex Tweet focuses on innovation for its ever-evolving roster of highly aromatic and well-balanced beers. Based on seasonality and consistent quality, Fieldwork forges its own path brewing beers they simply love to drink.
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. The Fieldwork Taproom and Beer Garden at Oxbow Public Market Annex will feature upwards of 18 beers on the menu and will present live music and other A&E programming.
