    Fear of FOMO
    Pale Ale / 5.6 ABV / 26 IBU

    We’ve brought back a really cool ingredient. JW Lees Yeast (origins tracing back almost 200 years) that was brought to us by Paul Jones of Cloudwater Brewing in Manchester, England. He obtained it direct from JW Lees. Hopped with High Oil Cascades in the boil and dry hopped with Simcoe, Citra, Mosaic and Centennial. Notes of Mango, Peach and Honeydew Melon.

    Part-Time Lover
    Pale Ale / 5.7% ABV / 33 IBU

    Call me up, ring once, hang up the phone. I’ll go to Cellarmaker anyways with a growler on loan. We are strangers by day, lovers by night, can’t stop thinking about that hoppy bite. If I’m with friends & we should meet, don’t care if any of us get a seat. Knowing it’s so wrong, but feeling so right, buy some jerky & chips to go with my pint. Hops: Galaxy, Simcoe, Citra & HBC344.

    Permanent Daylight
    IPA / 7.3% ABV / 48 IBU

    This staff favorite is hopped with Nelson Sauvin, Citra and Centennial hops. Pineapple is what comes to mind immediately for us. Alongside notes of mango and papaya paired with a piney dankness to balance all the fruit. Who needs daylight saving time when you can have permanent daylight?

    Little Lies
    English Bitter / 3.9% ABV / 24 IBU

    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.30% Spelt, 100% European hops and an English Ale Yeast. This bad boy is spicy with hints of orange marmalade, with a rich biscuity and nutty like malt character with a hint of burnt sugar from English Maris Otter and caramel malts. High flavor for such a low alcohol by volume!

    Smell The Colors
    Wheat IPA / 6.6% ABV / 40 IBU

    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 hazy West Coast IPA with big notes of pineapple, orange, and stonefruit. Dry but silky, this is a joy to drink.

  • growler
    Pale Ale / 5.8% ABV / 31 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.

  • Mo' Simcoe
    IPA / 6.9% ABV / 58 IBU

    Another pairing with our cherished Mosaic hop. The Simcoe we selected earlier this year has a really cool apricot character that accompanies Mosaic’s melon character really well. Tropical, dry and juicy.

  • Party Drank
    Double IPA / 8.9% ABV / 66 IBU

    Everybody loves a party and nothing makes a party better than some dope drank! For our Fourth Anniversary celebration we’ve brewed a super juicy double IPA. Over the top hopping with Mosaic, Galaxy and Citra plus fermentation with a blend of expressive yeasts creates a beer redolent of Mai Tais and spiked fruit juice!

  • growler
    Daphne with Nelson
    Blonde Ale / 5.1% ABV / 17 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. This time we added Nelson Sauvin hops for extra lime and some winter melon aromas.

    Tim's Brown
    Brown Ale / 6.5 % ABV / 21 IBU

    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.

  • growler
    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.

  • 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!

  • 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

  • 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.

  • Andrew Schwartzbier
    Black Lager

    A crisp easy drinking Black Lager made in collaboration with Modern Times Brewing.

  • Wizard Hand of Evil

    New IPA hopped with Mosaic, Nelson Sauvin, and Idaho 7 (our first time using this hop!)

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.
