Hopped with 100% Nelson Sauvin hops. As you contemplate the path to the top of Mt. Nelson think about the 2.5 lbs. per barrel of New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops in this precarious pale ale. Ruminate on the diesely, tropical fruit and melon aromas. May we suggest a word of advice: it's not the summit of Mt. Nelson you need to worry about, rather, the way down to the bottom.
Strata (brand new hop variety developed at Oregon State) is loaded with hyper flavors. It only recently became available in commerical quantities and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed seeing how it plays w/ other hop varieties we know & love. This IPA pairs Strata with Galaxy, Mosaic and Simcoe, 3 terpene-intense varieties. Notes of red starburst, apricot, pomegranate and the finest OG Kush you’ve ever had.
Part Time Lover
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
In our neverending quest to wrap our heads around each of our favorite hop varieties, we have begun not only to do single hop beers with 1 example of that hop, but we are specifically using 3 selected lots of Simcoe pellets. This trifecta should offer the ultimate Simcoe experience.
We are genuinely excited about this cold conditioned lager that was dry hopped with HBC 630, Idaho 7, Nelson, NZ Cascade, and Strata. Naturally carbonated, Genuine Excitement is a crisp alternative to those sticky IPAs, and features terpy notes of dried apricot and distant cannabis.
Another Bad Omen
Unforeseen elements arrive and clash and another bad omen emerges. The writing was on the wall for us to once again brew this sessionable porter that is chewy and rich yet has a restrained ABV. Don’t be dissuaded by the color of this beer, it is good for cold or hot days alike!
The verdict’s in, Cellarmaker loves bitters! We have no objection to making full flavored, low alcohol, crushable beers. We brew Legally Bitter with a significant portion of spicy rye plus English crystal malts which bring a nice nutty, toffee like character. We singularly hopped this ale with HBC 344, an experimental hop variety with citrus, floral and earthy notes.
Timbo Pils – Highland Park
We took inspiration from both German Pilsners and West Coast IPAs for Timbo Pils. We used more German influenced hops in the kettle (Czech Saaz, Opal, and Saphir) which gives the beer a softer bitterness and a nice floral and earthy hop base. We then used Mosaic and Nelson for dry hopping to bring out the tropical west coast flavors of mango, riesling grapes, and passionfruit.
Afternoon Treat – Moksa
We teamed up with our homies from Alvarado St Brewing to give you a little Afternoon Treat. This beer was inspired by a sea salted caramel frappuccino. We don't know if that actually exists but it sounds delicious. We started this project by producing a caramel-forward Imperial Porter then treating it post fermentation with Sea Salt from Big Sur, Ugandan Vanilla Beans, and Espresso roasted by Mostra Coffee in San Diego. The caramel and sea salt are subtle with the freshly roasted coffee being the star of the show. The heavy does of vanilla beans brings all the other ingredients together while providing a nice creaminess to the beer.
Hotel Kiwifornia – Mission Trail
Based on our world famous Kiwifornia! A master blend of 100% fresh pressed and fermented California Kiwi blended with Asian Perry and Raspberries. Very Tart and fruit driven with perplexing complexity.
Nonna’s Blend #16 – Sante Adairius
A blend of barrel-aged saisons.
Juice Reviver – Great Notion
Juice Reviver is a barrel aged sour IPA refermented with lactobacillus and brettanomyces. We “revived” this aged IPA by blending in a fresh batch of 100% mosaic Juice JR. Bursting with juicy tropical fruit and citrus, this sour IPA is a unique hoppy experience.
