California Love

Blonde Ale 5.4% ABV 22 IBU
We added Australian Enigma hops into the wort post boil after lowering the temperature below the point where isomerization (the creation of bitter compounds from Alpha acids) happens. The result, a beer with very little bitterness & all love. This beer is part of a donation effort, $3 from every pint & $2 from every crowler or growler sold will go to our brothers & sisters affected by the fires.

Permanent Daylight

IPA 7.2% ABV 35 IBU
Sticky and resinous; citrus and tropical fruit; Permanent Daylight delivers attractive hoppy flavors from some of our best hops. Nelson Sauvin, Citra and Centennial collaborate on bright aromas of Meyer lemon, pineapple and melon, followed by flavors of tangerine zest, white watermelon flesh and pine. A perfect example of what we call West Coast haze.

Mo’ Nelson

IPA 6.9% ABV 58 IBU
Mosaic and Nelson hops are two of our top faves. This beer is packed with fruit from these killer hops. Enjoy as they capoeira around your dome. Cantaloupe, Gooseberries, Blueberry and a slight touch of that dank diesel character that only our good friend Nelson can bring to the table.

Citrasaic

Pale Ale 5.8% ABV 33 IBU
Citrasaic is a new school West Coast Pale Ale. Unfiltered, fermented with a California Ale Yeast and hopped with generous doses of Citra, Mosaic and smaller amounts of Centennial and experimental hop HBC344. Notes of honeydew melon, dark berries, clementines and grapefruit. Absolutely destroyable at 5.8% so you can drink a few!

Murker’s Comp

DIPA 8.5% ABV 72 IBU
Mashed with a healthy dose of oat perfect for supporting bright papaya, tangerine, weedy dank aromas & flavors from Mosaic, Galaxy, Nelson, Strata & Citra. We added hops at many different times & temperatures, beyond what we typically do for most hoppy beers, in order to create a complete hop experience. Fermented with our house English ale yeast blend.

Double Beat

IPA 6.8% ABV 61 IBU
Certain IPA profiles come and go, but this classic West Coast IPA is inspired by ales that were brewed a decade or more ago and still carry on to today. Hopped with 100% of the, in our opinion, best Centennial in the world, mashed with pale, wheat and Munich malts and fermented with our house ale strain, Double Beat presents a bright aroma of lemon, melon and douglas fir and flavors of lime pith, candied orange and freshly baked bread.

Verve & Impulse

Pale Ale 5.6% ABV 28 IBU
This super crushable (drinkable) ale was brewed with really light pilsner and 2-row malts and hopped with citrusy hops for maximum drinkability. Nelson, Citra and Idaho7 present hints on lime, pear and melon followed by a crisp crackery malt flavor and spice, pithy hops. This is a beer meant for long term session drinking where your palate can easily become fatigued if the beer is too aggressive.

98.6 Degrees

IPA 6.1% ABV 39 IBU
Before almost disappearing into obscurity, Kveik yeasts were cultured from a few farmhouse breweries in Norway. These yeast ferment at nearly 100 degrees, yet remain clean & citrusy. We fermented this IPA at body temp & dry hopped there too with Mosaic, Citra & Simcoe. This beer is beautifully aromatic from amazing extraction of hop oils at the warm temperature.

Meet Me at the Kriek

BA Sour with Cherries 6.8% ABV 19 IBU
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.  

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.

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.

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 🙂

Greene Technology

IPA
We threw many of the pineapple and orange forward hop varieties together in excess. The result is quite pleasing. Hopped with Nelson, Citra, Southern Passion and XJA436. Resinous and moderately dank with big notes of mandarin orange, papaya and guava. Unique, tropical, pungent. The Tairy Greene Machine depends on it.

The Glow

Pale Ale
Motueka and Citra hops provide a Satsuma zest nose with pleasantly bitter tropical tang and candy apricot on a familiar costal New Zealand hop flavor undertone. We had to sprinkle The Glow with a little Simcoe and Mosaic for some of that west coast darkness that we love. It's got that Cellarmaker glow!

Imperial Coffee & Cigarettes

Imp. Smoked Porter
This is the bigger, badder version of Coffee and Cigarettes. We use over 4 lbs per barrel of Sightglass coffee for an intense coffee kick alongside a light addition of German Beechwood Smoked Malt for a touch of smoke character.

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.
