Beyond Beer: Hand Crafted Comfort is on Tap @ Fieldwork Brewing Co

Fieldwork Brewing Company is a craft brewery with a focus on exceptional, honest beer-making. Fieldwork’s San Mateo Taproom is located within the Bay Meadows neighborhood. Visitors to the San Mateo Taproom can enjoy a family-friendly, community vibe in the outdoor beer garden featuring communal seating, adjacent fire-pits, and bocce! Fieldwork offers an ever-changing tap list of fresh releases to enjoy by sampler flight, beer by the glass, and fresh beer filled “to go” in growlers and Crowler cans.

Discover a few more lesser known features you’ll find at Fieldwork…

Wine on Tap: Bet you didn’t know…FWB has something special for wine lovers too. Fieldwork offers 3 wines from Donkey & Goat in Berkeley. On draft they have Sliced Bread White Blend and Zera Red Blend. They also offer Gadabout Chardonnay from the bottle.

Fire Pits: While the Mid-Peninsula has amazing weather year-round, FWB has planned for chilly evenings and winter gatherings. Fieldwork San Mateo features two lovely fire pits that folks can relax around while lounging in brand new Adirondack chairs.

Blanket Share: If the firepits alone don’t do the trick, wrap yourself up and enjoy your favorite brew. Guests are welcome to take home your own Fieldwork Brewing branded blankets for $30 each!  INSIDER TIP: They do have a few on hand that can be loaned out to residents as long as an ID is left behind the bar.

Dog Friendly: Well behaved dogs, adults and children are always welcome! So gather up your canine pals, find a shady spot and plan an afternoon at Fieldwork. FWB is the perfect place to mix with friends after Bay Meadows Run Club with Basecamp San Mateo, shopping Hillsdale or after a Saturday morning spent with neighbors at the local San Mateo Farmers Market.

To Go Brews: Fieldwork offers their beers ‘to go’ in growlers and crowlers, which are filled on site to be enjoyed off site. Why wait in line? Pre-order Crowlers now for adventures to go!
