SFC

IPA 6.9% ABV 50 IBU
Don’t give us no bammer dank, we don’t drink that stuff in the SFC. 3, 2, 1 coming in super hopped with Mosaic, Citra, Centennial & Sterling. Mosaic & Citra hops give tropical fruit aromas & flavors that we love. Centennial & Sterling come in as back up layering in that pine, spice & earth that a West Coast IPA needs. This beer represents for the West, specifically the city by the bay.

Mycrokosmos

BA Sour 6.4% ABV 1 IBU
This is a collaboration with our dearest friends, Tired Hands Brewing. A wild ale fermented in oak & aged in the same vessel for many moons. During its aging we added over 100lbs of foraged California golden chanterelles to two oak barrels. After aging we bottle conditioned the beer for your enjoyment. The result is potently sour with pungent aromas of apricot, lemon, healing shrub & earth. Bright acidity, sweet tarts, light oak tannin & a faint chanterelle shroominess. Weird but cool!

YOLO Once

IPA 6.6 ABV 45 IBU
They say you only YOLO once… right? We love the flavors & aromas that come from the hop varietals grown in New Zealand. We love them so much that we flew there & selected the lots of hops that we loved the most. A little cray cray but the FOMO was real. This beer features NZ Riwaka hops alongside healthy doses of American Simcoe, Mosaic & Citra. Notes of passionfruit, stonefruit, & subtle resin. Bright & unique!

Boulevardier Vastness

BA Imp Stout 11.5% ABV 45 IBU
Like the Manhattan Vastness of Space, Boulevardier Vastness of Space is our imperial stout aged in a Boulevardier cocktail barrel. We procured this barrel from High West who aged bourbon, sweet vermouth and amaro in this barrel and then sent it to us after emptying. This is a single barrel project aged for 12 months, this is the last keg of it.

Green Knuckle

Wet Hop Pale 5.6 % ABV 30 IBU
Most hops are kilned & dried & packed into nitrogen flushed bags for storage. Once a year some escape that harsh reality & come directly to us brewers with all their beautiful parts intact to make a fresh hop beer. Green Knuckle uses dried Citra & Motueka hops in the boil & then we packed it full with fresh Mosaic hops into the fermenter. PUNGENCY RATING 10/10!!

Terpene Station

Double IPA 8.8& ABV 70 IBU
What are terpenes? They are aromatic compounds found in hops and the cousin to the hop, marijuana. This beer is so pungent we just had to give it an evocative name. Hopped with Citra, Galaxy, Mosaic, Centennial & Nelson. The train has left the station & is on the way to Dank Town. All aboard!

685

Pale Ale 5.2% ABV 34 IBU
This is a smash (single malt and single hop) beer! HBC 685 is a brand new hop varietal from Select Botanicals in Washington State, this is the same group of folks who invented Citra &Mosaic hop varieties. This hop is not available to very many commercial breweries, just the little guys are trying it out. Flavors & aromas of stonefruit, blackberry, pine & watermelon rind.

Laces Out!

IPA 6.5% ABV 55 IBU
I'm in Psychoville & Finkle's the Mayor. LACES OUT is a west coast IPA to the max. We hit this one hard with Citra, Centennial, Amarillo & CTZ. This player has huge notes of pineapple, citrus & mango. That's why Roger Podacter is dead! He found Captain Winkie! Good night, everybody. You've been a wonderful audience, I'll be here all week. Be sure to tip your waitress.

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. CANS AVAILABLE.

Questionable Origins #8

Wet Hopped Pale 5.6 % ABV 30 IBU
The 2018 hop harvest has begun. This year we worked with Indie Hops out of Oregon to procure a new variety of hop called Strata. Unlike the hops we use for most of the year which have been dried & processed, these were sent to us “wet,” or straight off the trellis in the field. Less than 24 hours after harvest, these hops were shoved into a waiting pale ale. Huge notes of pineapple, pine & freshly mowed lawn.

Abel Tasman

Pilsner 5.1% ABV 37 IBU
Abel Tasman National Park is located at the northern most section of the southern island of New Zealand. During a recent trip to NZ, we were captivated by the park’s awe-inspiring beauty. While there, we spent crucial time selecting the best hops NZ has to offer. This 100% NZ hopped pilsner is the result of that time and inspiration. Hops: Wai-iti, Nelson, Riwaka, NZ Cascade, Motueka

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 3/14/18 for those who are taking note.

Daphne

Blonde
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

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.
