Moon Sisters

BA Fruited Sour 6.3% ABV 10 IBU
Every summer the Moon Sisters gather in a secret location to sing, dance and forage blackberries. This barrel aged ale is the result of their devotion. It is as aborigine and cerise as the sky on the minutes when the moon again take domination over the sun. Aged for many moons in wine barrels on foraged and farm grown blackberries

4:1 Nectarine

BA Fruited Sour 6.5% ABV 5 IBU
This is the same base beer as the 4:1 Peach but with Ruby Grand Nectarines again from Frog Hollow Farms in Brentwood. We took a trip out to that farm to select specific varieties of Peach and Nectarine to make sure we were using the juiciest, most aromatic fruit in California. We think you can taste it!

Moonage Daydream

Pale Ale 5.9% ABV 35 IBU
We love Australian Galaxy hops & have been really happy with their quality lately. That’s why we decided to brew our original 100% Galaxy beer, Moonage Daydream. This pale ale is super crushable with a light, crackery malt character & pungent mango and pine aromas from the hops. This one will make you freak out! Drink more pale ale!

Double Dry-Hopped Dobis +

IPA 6.9% ABV 40 IBU
Dobis + is the IPA in our all-Citra-hopped beer series. This beer strives for the drinkability of the pale ale version with the flavor and aromatic impact of the double IPA. This time around we double dry-hopped Dobis + for even more passionfruit, lychee, mandarin orange, melon and pine.

Hot & Lazy

Pale Ale 4.8% ABV 31 IBU
Our hot and lazy brewer James designed this low alcohol, light and crisp beer so that fellow hot and lazy people like him have something to drink and cool off with. Wheat, pilsner and rye malts support a delicate hopping of Nelson and Idaho7 with a kiss of Citra. It’s perfect for the Indian Summer and the northeast winds.

Monster Manual

Brown Ale 6.9% ABV 34 IBU
We brewed our interpretation of a classic English brown ale. This beer is loaded with specialty malts such as dark Munich, light and medium caramel malts for deep, rich flavor, wheat and oats for supportive body and a touch of black malt for color and roast. We then lightly dry hopped with Goldings for that unmistakable English aroma.

Wizard Hand Of Evil

IPA 6.7% ABV 44 IBU
Wizard Hand Of Evil Is A Sinisterly Drinkable IPA With Aromas Of Just Ripened Pineapple And Bartlett Pears. A Balanced Malt Profile And Just Enough Bitterness On The Back To Make You Go Back For Another Sip. The All-Seeing Eye That Sees! Hops: Mosaic, Nelson Sauvin & Idaho 7.

Distorter

Brown Porter 6.5% ABV 45 IBU
This brown porter exemplifies the quaffable style and its nuanced structure. Neither too roasty, too chocolatey, too sweet, too bitter, Distorter presents varied deep malt flavors in harmony with a medium dose of hops. No adjuncts such as coffee or vanilla have been added; indeed it is the antithesis of a “pastry porter.” Enjoy its restraint and subtlety.

Simcoe Sessions

Pale Ale 6.1% ABV 37 IBU
Hop sourcing is not as straight forward as it might seem; especially for a brewery as small as Cellarmaker. Everyone loves Simcoe hops, but Simcoe isn't Simcoe, isn't Simcoe. There are many different farms & there can be variation (farm to farm & year to year). This batch of Simcoe Sessions employs a single lot of 2017 Simcoe from Washington.

Highway To the Danker Zone

DIPA 8.4% ABV 96 IBU
This Nelson forward DIPA features 3 hops selected by us for their outstanding aroma. Simcoe & Citra make up about 50% of the hop bill leaving plenty of room for the Nelson to be the showcase. Our recent trip to New Zealand awarded us with some of the best Nelson we have seen in years. Pineapple, grape, guava & diesel dank!

Plastic Weather

IPA 7% ABV 55 IBU
Our newest IPA is a combines New Zealand Riwaka and Nelson as well as American Citra. This stuff smells like straight up POG and looks like it too! We kept this one extra hazy for maximum juiciness, and it shows. It is super soft and round with tropical fruit flavors. The finish is piney spice and orange zest. Super yummy stuff and a great addition to our IPA lineup.

Pastry Program #1

Dessert Stout 13.1% ABV 40 IBU
You could argue that we have brewed huge adjunct stouts before, but never to this  ridiculous level. After brewing one of the strongest stouts we have ever made, we conditioned the beer on pounds and pounds of Cru Chocolate cacao nibs as well as Dandelion Chocolate cacao nibs, multiple pounds of Madagascar and Tongan vanilla beans and a touch of Sightglass coffee. This is a mocha milkshake in your glass!

Daphne

Blonde 5.4 ABV 16 IBU
Aromas of lemon and lime, orange candy, and geranium blossom come together with the crackery malt forming something reminiscent of a certain children's fruit cereal. The flavor is clean and balanced with juicy hops and bready malt and a lingering grassy bitterness. Hops: Amarillo, Centennial and NZ Motueka

Coffee & Cigarettes

Smoked Coffee Porter 7.7% ABV 45 IBU
A lightly smoked coffee porter made with a touch of German beechwood smoked malt as well as high quality English malts to create a chocolaty, roasty, base beer. Then, add two pounds of Sightglass Papa New Guinea Amuliba Estate, Jiwaka & Toketee Blend coffee per barrel for an intense but refined coffee character.

Lost Wisdom

Solera Saison 6% ABV 7 IBU
A singular fermenter in our brewery has been dedicated to a continuous fermentation by yeast and bacteria for over a year. This saison is the product of that fermentation. After 6 weeks in the stainless steel, the beer is keg conditioned for many months to allow the yeast to express itself. This is batch date 6/14/18 for those who are taking note.  Bottles still available 🙂

DDH Bucket of Truth

Look into the Bucket of Double Dry-Hopped Truth!

Galaxy Blaster

A surprising fact: we’ve never brewed a single hop Australian Galaxy IPA. When we realized this, because of our continually rotating menu, we were able to get one right on the schedule! Galaxy, with it’s crazy tropical aroma that’s laced with zesty tangerine and ginger spice, is one of those hops that doesn’t require other hops with it to make a beer pop. Fermented with an expressive yeast!

Cloudy with a Chance of Dobis

The Dobis family is dedicated to brews made with 100 % Citra. Our tap list, like this Bay Area weather is changing all the time. However, we love Citra so much, there is usually a chance of Dobis. This Dobis has an expressive yeast to soften & add even more tropical fruity flavors to your experience. We enjoy the aromas of passionfruit, mango & pineapple.

5 Year Pale Ale

New Pale Ale for our 5 year anniversary. Lets Party!

Dank Williams

Mosaic, Columbus, Summit and double dry hopped with Nelson, Motueka and Centennial. Big bright fruity aromas from the Southern Hemisphere hops with a pine and stonefruit focused flavor. Praise these hops, I saw the dank!

Meet Me at the Kriek

Balaton and sweet cherries from Michigan were added to a tank with three different oak aged beers of varying levels of acidity and funkiness. Refermentation continued for a couple of months and then we racked the beer off the cherries and bottled. Cherry, wood and spice aromas lead into stone fruit juiciness with a light carbonation that allows the cinnamon like spice and gummy bear like fruitiness to settle and reside on the pallet.  

Strawberry Oblivion

For a day and a half, we hand chopped and puréed 800 lbs of organic Albion strawberries from Watsonville California and then added them to a blend of 3 different oak-aged beers of varying levels of acidity and funkiness. No need to search for the Strawberry in this as an incredibly juicy aroma fills the air right after popping the bottle. Side note: these are the same strawberries that we used for a second refermentation for Strawberry Shorty, our tart strawberry wheat ale 🙂

DDH Turok Juice

Double Dry Hopped for your pleasure!

DDH Tiny Dankster

Hopped with generous additions of Nelson Sauvin, Mosaic & Citra this is one of our juiciest and favorite pale ales. It is a mini version of our double IPA Original Dankster. Notes of pineapple, kiwi, gooseberry, diesel, citrus and tropical fruits. Hold Me Closer Tiny Dankster!

Mo’ Strata

IPA
The latest in our Mo' IPA series, this time mixing Mosaic hops with newcomer Strata.

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 amber colored 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.
