Fieldwork Brewing at City Center remains open until their Grand Opening set for spring 2021.
“We are excited to expand our indoor space at City Center Bishop Ranch to add 40 additional seats and a kitchen so we can offer our patrons high-quality foods from our Culinary Director Jeffrey Amber’s new menu. City Center will be the latest Fieldwork location to feature our full menu, and we’re thrilled to be able to provide great menu items along with our fresh, locally brewed beer,” says Barry Braden, Co-Founder and Owner of Fieldwork Brewing Company.
“Fieldwork has quickly become a popular place for the community to meet and spend time. Everyone knows how good their beer is and we are excited that this expansion will allow them to introduce their food menu at City Center, which is equally fantastic,” says Alexander Mehran, Jr., President and Chief Executive Officer of Sunset Development Company, Owner and Operator of City Center Bishop Ranch.
Lauded as a “Rising Star Chef” by San Francisco Chronicle, Chef Jeffrey Amber (Culinary Director, Fieldwork Brewing Company) leads Fieldwork Brewing’s food program following his pioneering work as Executive Chef at Bi-Rite, Culinary Director at MIXT, Executive Chef at Chow, among other restaurant ventures. For the Fieldwork Taproom and Beer Garden menu at City Center Bishop Ranch, Amber sources exceptional organic ingredients from Bay Area farmers to serve seasonally-focused dishes and support the local sustainable agricultural ecosystem.
The centerpiece of Fieldwork’s 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.). 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.
