What’s On Tap At Cellarmaker

    Hoppiness is Fleeting
    IPA / 6.8% ABV / 47 IBU

    This IPA has an expressive yeast and tons of hops. Meditate on the tropical fruit and dank combination. Conceptually we are hitting this beer hard with potent American hops in the boil: Simcoe, Citra, Centennial for their resinous qualities. Followed by a huge dry hop of fruity So. Hemisphere hops: Nelson, Galaxy and XJA436.

    Bucket Of Truth
    Pale Ale / 6 ABV / 35 IBU

    Look into the bucket of truch if you dare… You may not like what you see. This summertime crusher is hopped with Citra, Nelson, Galaxy and Simcoe. Exceedingly juicy with notes of pineapple, mandarin, mango, papaya, kiwi fruit and melon.

  • growler
    Little Lies
    English Bitter / 3.5 ABV / 27 IBU

    Brewed with 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. If I could turn the page In time then I’d rearrange, Just a day or two…Tell me Lies, tell me sweet little lies.

  • Crush Problems
    Blonde Ale / 4.9 ABV / 22 IBU

    Sometimes we use a more expressive yeast than our house ale yeast (which is neutral in its fermentation characteristics).  It lends a pineapple & peach candy aroma to the floral and citrus character from Enigma, Amarillo & South African XJA436 and Southern Passion hops. Don’t mind the name, you will have no problem crushing this beer!

  • Alien Life Form
    IPA / 6.8 ABV / 67 IBU

    This new IPA is totally out of this world! Our Alien Life Form is way more than you can see with your eyes. Hiding inside your glass is a massive amount of Galaxy and a cosmic dusting of Simcoe, Mosaic and Centennial. This exploration in flavor reminds us of a day trip to Melmac, a different world with a green sky, blue grass and a purple sun. This should quench your vast appetite for hop forward flavors… and beyond!

  • The Glow
    Pale Ale / 5.7 ABV / 36 IBU

    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!

  • Turok: Mosaic Hunter
    IPA / 6.5% ABV / 46 IBU

    Each year’s hop harvest is often thought of as a linear progression: present becomes the past all the while moving into the future. Unbeknownst to most of us, Turok: Mosaic Hunter, exists within a pseudo-Yakima; hop farms of the now and those that have yet to come, seeking out the best Mosaic for your IPA.

  • growler
    Little Feat
    Session Ale / 4.6 ABV / 19 IBU

    Sometimes simple is best. Little Feat has a malt bill  consisting of 2-row and white wheat. The intention is to create a hearty enough malt backbone for a well hopped fun little 4.6% beer. While low in bitterness, Little Feat is hopped generously with Amarillo, Centennial and a small bit of Sterling. The overall hop character is floral, with notes of citrus, faint lemon peel and some spice.

  • growler
    Helles
    Helles Lager / 5.5 ABV / 20 IBU

    We get excited about classic beer styles, especially when it’s a lager. Lagers like this helles take more time to make than most ales, but your patience is rewarded with a clean flavor and crisp finish. Helles is brewed with light malts and a kiss of German hops to create a smooth, nourishing beer with just enough hops to make it extremely refreshing.

  • Coffee & Cigarettes
    Smoked 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.

  • growler
    Sunbreak
    Saison / 6.2 ABV / 32 IBU

    This is not a sour beer, this is not a funky brettanomyces influenced ale. It’s a classically flavored modern saison fermented with the Sasion Dupont yeast. Brewed with wheat and Vienna malts and hopped with American Santiam and Vanguard, this is an easy drinking, nourishing warm weather ale.

  • growler
    Midnight Society
    Stout / 7 ABV / 50 IBU

    Submitted for your approval is the return of our 1st stout.  This ale is rich with chocolate & cherry like aromas & a touch of coffee from roasted & black barleys.  No adjuncts were added to this beer so all aromas are from malt, hops & yeast.

  • Nutty Buddies
    Strong Ale

    Collaboration with Jackie-O’s Pub and Brewery.  A malt forward beer brewed with Almonds and Maple Syrup.

  • Batch 1
    Porter

    Classic English Style Porter. Notes of roast, ever so subtle smoke, bittersweet chocolate, graham cracker and an earthy hop bite to finish it out.

  • Citrasaic
    Pale Ale

    Citrasaic is a new school West Coast Pale Ale.  Unfiltered, fermented with a California Ale Yeast and hopped with Citra, Mosaic and smaller amounts of Centennial and experimental hop HBC344.  Notes of honeydew melon, dark berries, clementines and grapefruit.  Absolutely destroyable at 5.6% so you can drink a few!

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.
