Lucky for us, Blackhawk native and owner of Fieldwork Brewing Company, Barry Braden, recently announced Fieldwork was expanding its San Ramon location to include increased indoor and outdoor seating, plus the brewery is now offering a full dining menu created by culinary director Jeffrey Amber.
If you were a fan of Chow in Lafayette and Danville and Forge Pizza, then you have already tried Chef Jeffrey Amber’s creations. Now he is sourcing exceptional organic ingredients from Bay Area farmers to serve seasonally-focused dishes and support the local sustainable agricultural ecosystem at Fieldwork.
The centerpiece of Fieldwork’s menu is Neapolitan-inspired pizza cooked with organic flour and fresh whole peeled organic tomatoes. Spring vegetables and artisanal meats shape the opening menu with 10 different pizza styles. Starters include many health-conscious options, and a children’s menu is available.
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. The Fieldwork Taproom and Beer Garden at City Center Bishop Ranch features upwards of 18 beers on the menu.
We visited on a beautiful Friday night and found it was the perfect way to kick off the weekend. The food was anything but local pub fare. The pizzas, appetizers and drinks were all gourmet and beyond exceeded our expectations. It’s obvious that everyone involved with Fieldwork has passion for what they do, and we feel so lucky this great spot is only a short drive away.
