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!
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 +
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
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.
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
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.
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.
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
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!
If you don’t know, “Mo” stands for Mosaic. The Mo’ beers are always a two-hop beer featuring Mosaic, one of our favorite and maybe the most versatile of IPA hops, with one other world class hop. The 2nd is Citra, a hop to which we dedicate much of our time searching for the fruitiest, most aromatic version from year to year. Passionfruit, tangerine & forest pine!
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
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!
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
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.
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 🙂
The latest in our Mo' IPA series, this time mixing Mosaic hops with newcomer Strata.
