What’s On Tap At Cellarmaker

growler-icon= available for growler fills

  • Manhattan Vastness Of Space
    BA Imp Stout / 11.5 ABV / 45 IBU

    14 months ago we were fortunate to procure these High West Whiskey Barrels that further aged the same rye whiskey in addition to vermouth & bitters to form a barrel aged Manhattan cocktail. We filled these barrels with our traditional imperial stout. The result is a layered stout with aromas/flavors of wood & rye spice, currant & chocolate & a touch of herbal bitters & vermouth.

    Silver Hours
    IPA / 6.8% ABV / 70 IBU

    As Cellarmaker explores how fruity and juicy we can make an IPA, that is, go beyond IPA, we like to every once in a while take a step back and brew within the guidelines that got us here. For Silver Hours, we upped the malt a touch with some Vienna and Munich and hit the brew hard with Columbus hops for classic piney, dank flavors before adding Simcoe, Centennial and some Nelson.

    ALS In Chains II
    Pale Ale / 5.9% ABV / 33 IBU

    Every year Ales for ALS invites a few of America’s finest brewers to put together a blend of hops. Boxes of the blend are sent to participating breweries across the US who then use the hops in a beer whose proceeds go to ALS research and awareness. This pale ale is hopped heavily with that hop blend.

    Otto's Jacket
    IPA / 6.8 ABV / 76 IBU

    One of our favorite IPAs returns… Otto is a pungent West Coast IPA with flavors of intense citrus, resin, papaya and tropical fruits, oh my! This Beer is super hopped with Citra, Columbus, Centennial and Denali.  It reminds us of something… It smells like Otto’s Jacket!

  • Dobis
    Pale Ale / 5.7 ABV / 36 IBU

    100% Citra hopped with lots of Scottish Golden Promise malt to create a graham cracker base on top of lots of pineapple, mandarin, citrus, and mango from the Citra hops. Super juicy.

    White Limozeen
    Blonde Ale / 5.6 ABV / ? IBU

    Why is there a question mark where International Bitterness Units (IBU) is? Because we have no idea how to measure the bitterness of this beer. We added hops into the wort post boil after lowering the temperature below the point where isomerization happens. The result, a beer with very little bitterness that comes only from other bitter elements of the hops. 100% Australian Enigma

  • growler
    Mt. Nelson
    Pale Ale / 5.5 ABV / 36 IBU

    Hopped with 100% Nelson Sauvin hops. As you contemplate the path to the top of Mt. Nelson think about the 2.5 lbs. per barrel of New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops in this precarious pale ale. Ruminate on the diesely, tropical fruit and melon aromas. May we suggest a word of advice: it’s not the summit of Mt. Nelson you need to worry about, rather, the way down to the bottom.

    Batch 1
    Porter / 5.1 ABV / 35 IBU

    This was the first style that we ever brewed, hence the name.  Notes of roast, ever so subtle smoke, bittersweet chocolate, graham cracker & an earthy hop bite to finish it out. When you think of a porter you don’t always think easy drinkin’ and crisp but that is what this beer is like. Thank you & cheers to the OGs that remember the 1st batch 1.

  • growler
    Nutty Buddies
    Strong Ale / 9.1% ABV / 38 IBU

    Nutty buddies is a collaboration strong ale that we made with our friends from Jackie-O’s Pub & Brewery out of Athens, Ohio. This beer is made with house roasted almonds (thank you your oven Viva La Tarte) and Vermont Maple Syrup. Think: almond citrus spice cake. CONTAINS NUTS!

  • growler
    Little Lies
    English Bitter / 3.5 ABV / 27 IBU

    Brewed with 30% Spelt and 100% East Kent Golding Hops and an English Ale Yeast. This bad boy is earthy, biscuity, slightly acidic with subtle notes of lemon. If I could turn the page In time then I’d rearrange, Just a day or two…Tell me Lies, tell me sweet little lies.

  • growler
    Helles
    Helles Lager / 5.5 ABV / 20 IBU

    Lagers like this helles take more time to make than most ales, but your patience is rewarded with a clean flavor and crisp finish. Helles is brewed with light malts and a kiss of German hops to create a smooth, nourishing beer with just enough hops to make it extremely refreshing.

  • Smell The Colors
    IPA

    This ale is highly hopped with Simcoe and Citra and lesser amounts of Amarillo, and utilizes a good percentage of wheat malt. The colors will jump from your glass. This is new age West Coast IPA with big notes of pineapple, orange, and stonefruit.

  • Hop Making Sense
    Pale Ale

    Hopped with Nelson, Mosaic, Amarillo, Comet and Simcoe to create a pungent, but bright aroma and flavor in one of our favorite pale ales.

Friendly Reminder: We Are A 21+ Establishment

It is our goal to keep your taste buds intrigued by constantly producing different flavors

Cellarmaker Brewing Company

We are a San Francisco brewery producing small batches of experimental beers. It is our goal to keep your taste buds intrigued by constantly producing different flavors. To us, making the same 3-4 beers all the time would be boring in many ways. We hope you feel the same way and will make it out to our tasting room to sample our brews.  You just might find some of our beer out in the wild too (we’re on tap in about 25 Bay Area accounts, it is our intention to keep distribution local for many reasons).  Our limited output and choice to abandon the common concept of a set production schedule (and flagship beers) will allow us to constantly experiment with different hops, grains, barrels, and yeasts.

Since hoppy beers are the go-to for most people (us included), we generally have 3-5 hop-driven beers on tap in the tasting room most of the time.  We strive to make juicy + aromatic hoppy beers, not bitter.  Aside from the hoppy beers, we try to have a well balanced taplist; a little bit of something for everyone.  Expect to see a few dark and roasty options, something bright and effervescent, something Belgian inspired and something on the lighter side. The taplist on this page is up to date 99% of the time.

At the tasting room you will find our beers available in 5oz tasters, half pints, pints, as well as 1 Liter and 64oz growlers to go.  We sell glass growlers of the 1L and 64oz size with our logo for $8. We also sell stainless steel growlers with our logo, 1L for $20 and 2L for $25. We will fill 750ml, 32oz, 1L, 64oz and 2L growlers that have zero logos showing or have the logos properly covered. For more details on our growler policy (we try to be as liberal as legally possible with growlers) check out our growlers page. It should answer all of your questions.
