'The Callisto Protocol' Partners With Fieldwork Brewing Company To Make A Limited-Edition Collaboration Beer

The Callisto Protocol is a brand new story-driven, single-player game from the minds behind the Dead Space franchise.

The Callisto Protocol is a next-generation take on survival horror that fuses brutal combat with a deeply human story in a terrifying sci-fi world.

In this narrative-driven, third-person survival horror game set 300 years in the future, the player will take on the role of Jacob Lee – a victim of fate thrown into Black Iron Prison, a maximum-security penitentiary located on Jupiter's moon, Callisto. When inmates begin to transform into monstrous creatures, the prison is thrown into chaos. To survive, Jacob must battle his way to safety to escape Black Iron Prison, while uncovering the dark and disturbing secrets buried beneath the surface of Callisto. Using a unique blend of shooting and close-quarters combat, Jacob will need to adapt his tactics to combat the rapidly evolving creatures while scavenging to unlock new weapons, gear, and abilities to outrun the growing threat and escape the horrors of Jupiter's Dead Moon.

The Callisto Protocol challenges players to master a thrilling blend of hand-to-hand and ranged combat, including a unique gravity weapon once used by Black Iron guards to control the prison population. Players will be forced to get up close and personal with their grotesque opponents, hacking off limbs, blasting off legs, and getting creative with whatever is at their disposal to survive each life-or-death encounter.

One of the most hostile, isolated environments in the universe, Callisto looms large over Jacob’s desperate struggle to survive. Players must not only contend with the horrors of Black Iron Prison, but also the centuries-old secrets that plague Jupiter’s long-dead moon, both above and below the surface.

Fieldwork Brewing Company and Striking Distance Studios announce the release of a new collaboration beer, Outer Way Stout.

Helmed by Glen Schofield (acclaimed game developer for "Dead Space" and "Call of Duty"), Striking Distance Studios' latest The Callisto Protocol game sets a new bar for next-generation horror in the interactive entertainment space. 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

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. 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 StoutOuter 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.

Stop by a Fieldwork taproom and experience this next-level stout while supplies last.

The Callisto Protocol aims to put the horror back in survival horror and is now available for PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S and PC.
