    Fuzzy Glow
    Pale Ale / 5.6 ABV / 26 IBU

    For Fuzzy Glow, we brew the exact same recipe as our pale ale The Glow with a couple of small changes. We use a more expressive (than our house ale yeast) English ale yeast that increases the fruity aroma we already derived from Mosaic, Citra, Simcoe and Motueka hops. We also tone down the bitterness for a sweeter, smoother brew.

    Best Fiends
    Porter / 8% ABV / 50 IBU

    This is a big chewy Porter that focuses on quality malts. This luscious brew has the nose and flavor intensity of an imperial stout but comes in at a reasonable ABV. Best Fiends contains no adjuncts yet is packed with aromas of freshly baked chocolate croissant, graham cracker, cigar tobacco, high percentage cacao, and malted milk ball.

  • Less Than Zero
    Brut IPA / 6.8% ABV / 20 IBU

    Introducing a new subcategory of IPA that is sweeping the Bay Area. The “Brut IPA” is a highly drinkable IPA that strives for immense drinkability like a hop “champagne.” This beer is extremely dry and crisp finishing at -.4 Plato with a light hop flavor unlike West Coast and NE IPAs – but just as aromatic. Hops: Motueka, Simcoe, Centennial and Galaxy.

  • Maple Bourbon Barrel Evil Spread
    Imp. Stout / 15 ABV / 68 IBU

    Last year we brewed Evil Spread with our friend Jeppe of Evil Twin Brewing. We aged a portion of that beer in Blis Gourmet Maple Bourbon barrels for a year. We then conditioned Evil Spread on cacao nibs, toasted hazelnuts and vanilla bean. This is a decadent treat that makes more sense as a dessert than part of breakfast, like it’s hazelnut spread inspiration. Contains Nuts!

  • Orange Julian
    IPA / 7.7% ABV / 42 IBU

    A big old IPA brewed with oats and wheat and an abundance of hops as well as double dry hopped. The high ester producing yeast adds an intriguing pineapple and mango quality to an over the top hop expression from Simcoe, Mosaic, Citra and Nelson Sauvin hops. This IPA was originally brewed for Beachwood BBQ Seal Beach’s 10th anniversary.

  • Brett Illuminaetron
    American Belgo Ale / 7.2 ABV / 19 IBU

    Illuminaetron is an American-Belgo that we brewed a few months back. It was brewed with oats & wheat, hopped with Simcoe, Nelson & Cascade & fermented with a trio of Belgian & English yeasts. What you are drinking now is a single keg of that beer inoculated with a classic brettanomyces strain that adds a soft floral, earthy aromas as well as a hint of apricot & pineapple.

  • Dobis Plus
    IPA / 7.2 % ABV / 39 IBU

    This single hopped pale ale uses copious amounts of Citra hops to achieve a complex tasting experience. The Scottish Golden Promise malt presents a graham cracker like base for the Citra which infuses the brew with aromas of passionfruit, mango and peach and flavors of grapefruit rind and spice.

    New Beer Smell
    Pale Ale / 6.1% ABV / 39 IBU

    Juicy and Bright pale ale brewed with experimental hop HBC 344, Mosaic, Nelson, and Motueka. Easy to drink, refreshing and most importantly has that fresh new beer smell that we crave.

  • Brain Skillzzz
    Saison / 6.5 ABV / 18 IBU

    Collaboration with Highland Park Brewery & Automatic Brewing. At the very center of our brain lies the greatest concentration of synapses and receptors within the Skillzzz Lobe. Little is known about this area of high-functioning activity except that during brewing collaborations, neuroimaging scanners cease functioning from an overload of neural transmission.

  • Bourbon Barrel Vanilla Latte Vastness of Space
    Barrel-Aged Imperial Stout / 11.5% ABV / 45 IBU

    After aging in a Breckenridge Bourbon barrel for over a year, we conditioned our imperial stout The Vastness of Space on espresso beans from Sightglass coffee, whole vanilla beans and lactose sugar. The result is like whiskey infused hot cocao and mudslides. In other words, DAMN GOOD

  • growler
    Coffee & Cigarettes
    Smoked Coffee Porter / 7.8 % 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 nearly two pounds of Sightglass 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.

  • growler
    Babooshka Ya-Ya
    Baltic Porter / 7.9 ABV / 31 IBU

    Baltic Porters are ideal for winter months in the Bay Area. A little more generous on ABV, restrained body due to being lagered, pleasant but not overwhelming roast/hop character. We lagered this one for just over a month and used the legendary Augustiner Yeast. Notes of dark cocoa, earthy coffee, baked bread. Subtle acidity.

  • growler
    Legally Bitter
    American Bitter / 3.9% ABV / 28 IBU

    The verdict’s in, Cellarmaker loves bitters! We have no objection to making full flavored, low alcohol, crushable beers. We brew Legally Bitter with a significant portion of spicy rye plus English crystal malts which bring a nice nutty, toffee like character. We singularly hopped this ale with HBC 344, an experimental hop variety with citrus, floral and earthy notes.

  • Tim's Brown
    Brown Ale

    A hoppy brown ale very close to our heart. Tim has been brewing this beer since his early days as a homebrewer. It’s a recipe he has constantly adjusted in his efforts to make a deliciously floral, piney, somewhat hoppy, brown ale. This beer is loaded with flavors from the rich malts and a pleasantly firm but not overbearing bitterness. The end result is a damn tasty brown ale with a nice hop kick.

  • Daphne with Nelson
    Blonde Ale

    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. This time with Nelson Sauvin hops added.

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.
