We conditioned a small portion of Welcomed Waves, our classic saison, with brettanomyces for an even more rustic brew. Originally fermented with a blend of yeasts, naturally carbonated & cold conditioned, this brew features old world hops & aged Styrian Golding to make a complex yet quaffable saison with added earthiness and dried fruit character from the brett aging.
This hazy West Coast pale ale is singularly hopped with an unknown hop blend that was processed in an experimental fashion by Freestyle Farms in New Zealand. Freestyle has not revealed the hops in the blend but says the processing hopefully results in "meaningfully higher levels of aroma-active thiols (tropical aromas) in the finished pellets.”
Farmer Direct: Pluot
BA Fruit Sour
Blended stainless fermented & oak aged mixed culture beers on top of super ripe Flavor Supreme Pluots from Kashiwase Farms in Winton, California. Further aged the beer in neutral red wine barrels until the fruit refermentation was complete & the flavors were smooth & complex. An amazing expression of the fruit’s aromatics & intense flavor.
This deeply hazy, light bodied beer has aromas of lemon and lime zest, pineapple, pear and pine. The flavor is pungently dank but equally soft and grainy with white bread notes from a small addition of Canadian wheat malt. It's a true easy drinker but doesn't lack in flavor one bit. Hops: New Zealand Motueka, and Australian Galaxy and Enigma.
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.
The very first Cellarmaker IPA! With Nelson Sauvin, Galaxy, Simcoe & Centennial hops. Aromas of mango & overripe passion fruit, lychee and rambutan, pine, & a slight diesel character from the Nelson Sauvin. The flavor is a burst of fruity resinous pine which transitions to an assertive bitterness supported by the peppery, oily rye. Slang some hops in yo’ face!
Good As Hell 2
This beer is brewed with light colored English pale malts and German wheat malt for a soft crackery, bready backbone supporting citrus & pine aromas from a judicious hopping of Centennial, Riwaka, Wai-iti, HBC 344 & Citra. We gave this beer a week’s extra cold time for incredible smoothness. At 4.8% ABV, this beer is meant for hours of gregarious drinking without losing your wits.
Pilsner is enjoying a recent resurgence in popularity. What is it about this style that excites a brewer's joie de vivre? Maybe the light malt flavors supporting enticingly spicy hop aromas (without getting in their way), and the mouth-watering pronounced hop flavor, all within a low-alcohol package that keeps you coherent. It's a style that invigorates, not incapacitates -- so drink up! Prost!
Strawberry Shorty is a tart wheat ale (aka session sour) utilizing certified organic strawberries grown by Rodriguez Brothers Ranch in Watsonville. This is second-use fruit, meaning we initially aged another beer on the fruit to extract most of the flavor, which then went into bottles. We brewed a simple Belgian wheat beer on top of the fruit and keg conditioned the batch for 8 weeks.
Coffee & Cigarettes
Smkd 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, we add two pounds of Sightglass Colombian Finca Alcatras coffee per barrel for an intense but refined coffee character.
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.
Spiced Coffee Porter
Inspired by Moroccan spiced coffee, Dark Senses is a rich and decadent porter layered with a fragrant blend of spices (Cardamom, cloves & star anise) dutch cocoa, and Four Barrel El Tablon espresso. The texture is perfectly silky, and the aromas and flavors contribute an intense complexity that evolves as the beer warms.
Board Of Crustees
We collaborated on a new Hazy IPA with our buds from the almost open Slice Beer Company which is going straight into aluminum jackets. We pooled our years of hop knowledge to make crushable juice for you. Expressive yeast and hop infused from top to bottom with Nelson and Strata! We know you’ll enjoy this beer from these two pizza focused, we mean hop focused breweries!
Dobis is our 100% Citra hopped pale ale that starts with lots of Scottish Golden Promise malt to create a graham cracker base. Then Citra brings forth lots of pineapple, mandarin, citrus, and mango. We love Citra, it is super juicy and flavorful. This is the first beer in a long line of brews that we make hopped only with it. Cheers to the OG Dobis!
Cellarmaker After Dark
Mosaic, Columbus, Summit and double dry hopped with Nelson, Motueka and Centennial. Big bright fruity aromas from the Southern Hemisphere hops with a pine and stonefruit focused flavor. Praise these hops, I saw the dank!
Drink more pale ale!
