Fieldwork Brewing Co.: Eliza
Plenty of brewers boast that their beers go great with food. But at Fieldwork Brewing, the beer is the food. The Berkeley- based brewery is notorious for raiding fridges and pantries for inspiration, earning a reputation for churning out beers that are as head-scratchingly weird as they are fun to drink. Chocolate Milk brown ale tastes almost exactly like its namesake. There is a porter reminiscent of French toast, a cherry parfait–inspired sour, and a summery farmhouse ale infused with cucumbers and French sea salt. One of its most memorable, and delicious, concoctions is Eliza, a strong and silky milk stout that’s a twist on the hangover-busting New Orleans–style iced coffee. Organic cane and milk sugars balance out bitter chicory, and whole coffee beans deliver an enlivening jolt—so much so that you may be tempted to reach for it first thing in the morning.
