Kilning Me Softly
There are a few points in the processing of hops that their beautiful aromatics can be accidentally driven off or altered negatively. During kilning, the wet, freshly picked hops sit in a bed while hot air is pumped through them. A perfectly kilned hop will retain just the right amount of moisture as well as those juicy aromas. This beer contains 2018 Simcoe and Citra fresh out of the kiln!
First you climbed Mt. Nelson, then you tackled Double Mt. Nelson, now you are ready for the true challenge. Mt. Cook is the highest mountain in New Zealand. This IPA is dedicated to that giant beauty and made with the bounty of the hops grown on the Island. This beer is highly hopped with New Zealand Cascade, Nelson, Riwaka & Motueka. This delicious brew will get you to the highest peak and beyond.
Mixed Culture Saison
Collab w/ Automatic & Highland Park. This beer was partially open fermented in Highland Park’s plastic mashtun w/ saison yeast & cultures from Highland & CM & oak spirals from Automatic. After 24 hours of ambient air exposure the fermenting wort was pushed into a stainless to finish primary fermentation then aged in used red wine oak. 1st released 2/8/18. Vintage keg!
Turok: Mosaic Hunter
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 & those that have yet to come, seeking out the best Mosaic for your IPA.
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!
For this single hopped Double IPA we use one of our favorite hops, CITRA!!! This hop brings potent aroma and flavor, notably of pine sap, lychee, orange and pineapple. This is Citra monster features a significant portion of fresh 2018 Citra, personally selected by us up in Yakima Valley, Washington.
Look & Listen
Let’s sit crooked & talk straight, here’s the thing, Look & Listen is our new pale ale dedicated to one of our favorite podcasts. Simcoe, Comet & Mosaic hops will take you to a tropical forest that you are safe to visit. You can be crazy, just be light-hearted about it. Remember if you see something, say something. Stay sexy & drink more pale ale.
Imperial Coffee & Cigarettes
Imp. Smoked Porter
This is the bigger, badder version of Coffee and Cigarettes. We use over 4 lbs per barrel of 100% Sightglass Toketee coffee for an intense coffee kick alongside a light addition of German Beechwood Smoked Malt for a touch of smoke character.
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.

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.
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.
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 🙂
Look what the nurse brought you: your daily dose of pils! Here at Cellarmaker, all patients & customers are required to take their pils. No buts! Classic German Pilsner with 100% German pilsner malt & Hallertau Mittelfrüh and Hersbrucker hops for a bready, spicy flavor & crackery, floral aromas. 100% naturally carbonated for lively bubbles that release the aroma & add a refreshing bite.
IPA Brewed to support those impacted by the camp fire
A beer that almost makes no sense, almost. A Beer that uses 8 pounds per barrel of Citra hops in a single batch. Quadruple Dobis is that beer. Juicy with notes of lychee, mandarin orange and pineapple with just enough malt backbone to hold down the fort. 100% Citra hopped.
