The Fieldwork Crew

Saint Thomas
Saint Thomas - IPA 6.7% "Originally the second beer in our one-time-only appreciation-fueled "Saint Series," and after months of longing to drink it again, we gave in and promoted Saint Thomas to rotational status in our series of hazy IPAs. This single hop American IPA showcases Mosaic hops alongside our clean and grainy pilsner malt and copious amounts of wheat and oats. Living up to its name, Saint Thomas opens up with an aromatic barrage of freshly made tropical fruit salad, dousing the sinuses in a cavalcade of over-ripe melons and fresh squeezed fruit juice. Honeydew Melon, ripe citrus, fresh green grapes, and hints of pineapple juice dominate the palate. The grain bill provides a blank canvas, letting the hop character dance all over the palate, finishing with a clean and refreshing note of freshly cut ruby red grapefruit. We try our best not to admit that we have a favorite, but it is impossible to deny how much we adore this tropical fruit punch of a beer."
In Bloom
In Bloom - Double IPA 8.2% "With loud flavors of freshly zested lemons and juiced navel oranges, In Bloom Double IPA is a super-soaker filled with juice blasting your palate at will. Its hazy appearance foreshadows the juicy hop flavor approaching, eventually bogging down your senses with notes of meyer lemon juice, orange marmalade, and freshly peeled cuties. With a soft bitterness, a full body, hints of the stickiest of the ickiest, and a boat load of oats, In Bloom can be sessionably chewy while accentuating the battalion of hops coating your mouth. While you’re busy trying to sing along with the melody of hop aromas, please stay aware that you are drinking a fairly big beer and restraint is suggested. In Bloom Double IPA might drink like an acoustic ballad, but its flavor profile is more like smashing your guitar through stage monitors. Enjoyed best with good friends and Rock ‘n Roll."
Barrel Aged Eliza
Barrel Aged Eliza - New Orleans Iced Coffee Imperial Milk Stout 10.5% "Barrel Aged Eliza is the rum barrel aged version of our New Orleans Iced Coffee inspired Imperial Milk Stout. We took all of the ingredients you would find in a cup of iced coffee in New Orleans, added a complex and nutty single origin coffee from our favorite local roaster Catahoula Coffee Co., French Chicory, organic cane sugar, and then a hefty amount of milk sugar to give Eliza a thick and creamy texture in line with the drink that inspired it. Much like the ghost ship that inspired its name, our Eliza disappeared for quite some time. Lucky for us it was hiding in freshly imported rum barrels from the island of St. Croix. Upon its reappearing we blended Eliza to get a unique balance of roasty chicory, sweet rum, and oaky vanillin notes. The already massively bodied Imperial Milk Stout has just the right amount of fortitude to stand up to its time served in the barrels and the oak flavors it brought back with it, creating a one of a kind barrel aged experience."
Island Time
Island Time - Tropical Sour Ale 5.8% "Island Time Tropical Sour Ale looks exactly how it feels when you step off a plane in Hawaii and someone drapes a lei around your neck. The vibrant pink color screams for an umbrella to be dropped in the glass while your imagination takes your toes to a warm white sandy beach. The nose of this tiki inspired concoction is ripe with red papaya that kicks with an almost sweet smelling funkiness. As this tropical beer sets sail across your tastebuds, you'll be exposed to more fruit-fueled complexity than you could have imagined. Potent notes of papaya quickly dissipate and are overtaken by boisterous waves of pineapple and eventually finishing with ripe to perfection mango flavors; all with refreshing and underlying notes of key lime and hibiscus flowers. Crafted with the coast of Molokai on our mind; Island Time Tropical Sour Ale is incredibly tart and exceedingly juicy, taking your palate on vacation every time you grab a pint."
Pulp Free
Pulp Free - Westcoast IPA 6.9% "Pulp Free is not your typical Fieldwork IPA; originating from our first foray into the murk craze it never quite felt right in our dartboard of a beer lineup, and was thusly reinvented with added clarity and increased bitterness, resulting in the Westcoast version of its namesake PULP IPA. While PULP exemplifies what we want in a Northeast IPA, we figured Pulp Free could do just the same for us in the world of Westcoast. High bitterness, excessive dryness, and the same over-the-top dry-hopping of Citra hops deliver the expected Fieldwork flavor profile and explosive aroma in a San Diego package. The abundance of Citra hops create an aggressive aroma that smells like a drive through a citrus orchard in peak of season, with notes of fresh orange, yellow grapefruit, and juicy sweet mango trekking from the first sniff to the last sip. Pulp Free IPA delivers just what we miss about the Westcoast IPAs of yore; enamel peeling hop character with a sledgehammer of aroma, and every bit as dry as East County San Diego in drought season."
Library Release of Four Barrel Aged Sours
Limited Edition Barrel Aged Sours
Available to Enjoy In House or To-Go  
While Supplies Last

Beware the Savage Jaw - Sour Ale 8.5% "After feeding a hundred or so wine barrels fresh wort almost three years ago, then constantly feeding them with new yeast, new microbes, new starches, new sugars, and tons of fruit, we are excited to release our first barrel aged sour in 2 and a half years. Over that span of time the barrels picked up more acidity, more funk, more alcohol, and a lot of fruit. First up is "Beware the Savage Jaw," a Sour Ale with Black Currants and Limes that spent 2 years, 6 months, 23 days in oak barrels. It's sharp acidity is rounded out a bit by the overwhelming berry-like nature of the currants, and picks up a nice complexity of acid blending its naturally formed lactic acid with the citric acid from the limes."

More Idols Than Realities - Sour Ale 11.7% "Barrel aged sour ale with Apricots and Tangerines"

Dressing in Thoughts From The Skies - Sour Ale 12.32% "Next up in our voyage of oak fermented and aged sours is Dressing in Thoughts From the Skies; a sour ale that spent 2 years, 7 months, 25 days in oak barrels while constantly being fed carbohydrates like it was binging on Netflix. After its long tenure in oak with mangos, pineapples, and pomelos it finally tipped the scales at 12.32% ABV with a nicely balanced yet bitey acidity and an intoxicating topical juiciness. Subtle brett character lifts this Imperial-sized sour ale off the palate to keep it drinkable without needing to share with a friend, or your dog sitting next to you tired of listening to you clamor about how great Narcos is.

Wondrous Beings Chained to Life - Sour Ale 12.5% "Next coming out of our barrel aged sour program is Wondrous Beings Chained to Life, an imperial-sized Sour Ale that spent almost 2 and a half years aging in oak barrels, a portion of which with blackberries, raspberries, and boysenberries. With berries taking center stage of this fruity almost vinous super-sized Sour, there is balance attained from its mild brett-induced funk and just a pinch of oak tannins."

If you are visiting the taproom just to get Crowlers or growler fills, be sure to step to the right side of the bar and order from our #ForAdventuresTogo area. 

We all love to take tasty beer #ForAdventuresTogo, but how do we ensure that we are getting the highest quality from our growlers and Crowlers? We thought we'd jot down some general guidelines for proper care of your offsite vessels.

*Glass- Be sure your glass is clean and rinsed when you bring it in for filling. Don't use fat or oil based detergents, rinse well and air dry, extra points if you sanitize it too. When not in use, be sure to store your glass with the lid off. 

*Drink fresh- We suggest consuming both Crowlers and growlers within 3 to 4 days to avoid degrading quality (one week max) and be sure to store them cold the entire time.

*Cover up- If your growler has another logo on it, be sure to tape over it. Growlers must reflect properly what is currently inside them. 

*Remember- that growlers and Crowlers are pressurized containers and can explode if not handled correctly. Do not expose them to extreme temperatures, like putting them in the freezer or leaving them in a hot car for long periods of time.
