Fieldworkd Brewing and Striking Distance Studios have announced a new partnership, bringing a special Callisto Protocol themed beer to players.
Few things go better with your gaming session, than a good adult beverage. This is especially true of horror games, where something might be required to take your anxiety down a notch or two. As such, it’s neat to see this new collaboration between Fieldwork Brewing Company and the developers behind The Callisto Protocol!
Today, they’ve announced the Outer Way Stout, a new beer launching alongside the game that also has a pretty neat story behind its inception:
A passion-fueled collaboration between two SF Bay Area businesses, Outer Way Stout brings together SDS’s master developers who are behind some of today’s most sought-after video games and brewmaster Alex Tweet at Fieldwork Brewing for a Midnight Stout that clocks in at 9% ABV. Shortly before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Striking Distance Studios opened its studio a mere stone’s throw from City Center Bishop Ranch (San Ramon, Calif.) where Fieldwork Brewing has had a taproom since 2018 (LINK). While the game was being designed over the past three years, key members of the development team would make the short walk across the road to Fieldwork to enjoy some craft beers and discuss the day’s progress on their then unannounced new game. Little did they realize the outing would become a ritual as they loved the dedication Fieldwork put forth in all of their unique beers.
Flash forward to the official launch of “The Callisto Protocol” and SDS and Fieldwork are thrilled to celebrate the craftsmanship between the two teams with the December 2 release of the limited-edition beer, Outer Way Stout. Outer Way Stout represents more than just a beer, it combines rebellion and fighting for what you believe in with the hard work it takes to develop something special for gamers and craft beer drinkers alike.
Outer Way Stout joins the resistance for an out-of-this-world journey of its own with 4-Packs of 16oz. cans available at all eight Fieldwork Brewing taprooms and beer gardens throughout Northern California and on fieldworkbrewing.com. Stop by a Fieldwork taproom and experience this next-level stout while supplies last.
Just…you know, try not to spill any when something jumps out at you.
