Gilman Brewing Company is another fantastic brewery in Northwest Berkeley and it is located a few blocks from Fieldwork Brewing Company so you can make a brewery hopping tour! Gilman is very dog-friendly and the staff is also friendly. They make a nice selection of beers that include double IPAs to a nectarine saison. Also, their taproom looks amazing.
Some of their amazing beers are the following:
- Champ Rochaux (6.0%) – Tart and fruity, but not sweet nectarine saison;
- Secret Bunch (6.4%) – Nitro brown ale with real bacon;
- Oil Pan (6%) – Dark stout with roasted malt and cocoa.
Gilman has no street parking, but you can find some in the residential areas. Also, there is usually a food truck in front in case you need to nibble on something.
