A nice counterpart to our usual Cellarmaker hoppy profile, Thrash Lizard relies on spicy and herbal citrus hop flavors and aromas with much less of the tropical fruit that one usual sees. An addition of unmalted wheat and English Golden Promise barley malt add some extra heft which plays against the crisp hop profile. HOPS: Centennial, Nelson & Galaxy
Oat Cream DIPA
Our first Oat Cream Double IPA brewed with a significant portion of oats and creamy milk sugar. Hopped with Citra, Motueka, Nelson and a touch of Galaxy, fermented with an expressive yeast for over the top tropical aromas of pineapple and mango plus some coconut all enhanced by the sweetness from the lactose. CONTAINS LACTOSE
DH Fruited Sour
This is the second installment in our one fruit/one hop mixed culture series. We brewed a barrel aged sour ale with a heavy hand of Simcoe, an already melon forward hop. We then conditioned it on California grown Ambrosia melon from Country Rhodes Family Farm for a crazy, over the top Jolly Rancher like melon aroma and flavor. Super juicy and intriguing!
New Beer Smell
A West Coast pale ale brewed with experimental hop HBC 344, Mosaic, Nelson and Motueka. Easy to drink, refreshing and most importantly has that fresh new beer smell we all crave. You like that aroma? Then it is all yours! Drive this one right off the lot!
6.8 % ABV
Galaxy, with its crazy tropical aroma that’s laced with zesty tangerine and ginger spice, is one of those hops that doesn’t require other hops with it to make a beer pop. We originally brewed this beer with an expressive yeast that covered up some of the wild aromas of the hop, so we decided to brew this batch with a neutral yeast to let the Galaxy speak.
JAAAAHHHHHH!!!!! This is batch 420! Instead of being completely predictable and making a huge hop bomb that no bald head would ever enjoy, we brewed a super sessionable pale ale that’s perfect for killing the thirst after a long shift at Cold Stone Creamery. So have a pint; maybe fill your growler so you can enjoy it at home while watching Cool Runnings. Hops: Citra, Galaxy, XJA436
187 on a mother #%$*#&* HOP! Hop Killah is a deceivingly potent but super smooth IPA and hopped with Citra, Simcoe and Centennial. It has a great floral character with a little black pepper spice and tropical fruit. The flavor is of resinous pine, dried fruits, and a nutty malt character from the Maris Otter. Come on in and kill a few pints.
Small Pale Ale
Loaded with galaxy and strata hops, Crush Hour is that perfectly balanced small IPA you can’t get enough of...served up in a manageable package! A balanced maltbill of wheat and pils keeps this beer silked out despite its rather responsible 4.8% ABV. Crush on!
Czech-Style Amber Lager
If you like a beer with a tasty balance between spicy hops & bready malts, this is the beer for you. We brewed Insanity Lager with biscuity & nutty Maris Otter and Munich malts juxtaposed against lemony & earthy Liberty & Tradition hops. Fermented & lagered for six weeks with a Czech yeast for extra complexity & richness.
A single hop IPA exploration of a hop we don’t use much here at Cellarmaker. Amarillo is one of those hops that is hard to pin down. We haven’t seen much of high quality until recently; so we are excited to bring you an Amarillo extravaganza! Orange and lemon zest aromas and a distinct piney bite that Amarillo delivers better than any other.
50% malted wheat in the mash makes this pale tart and round in body. The acidity amplifies tropical fruit aromas of mango and passionfruit as well as navel orange and lemon. The tartness caries through to the flavor which transitions into a dry bitterness from the hops (Motueka, Idaho7, Wai-iti, Centennial and Simcoe).
Hip Hip, Beret!
French Country Ale
Hip Hip Beret has a distinct resemblance to a beer from the north of France which we enjoy very much. Brewed with wheat, oats, Munich and pilsner malts, hopped singularly with pithy English Bramling Cross and fermented with a unique strain of yeast that gives off hints of enticing spice. A complex yet easy drinker with a hoppy bite.
Simcoe Galaxy was one of our first dozen IPAs or so. We love this beer, but unfortunately Cellarmaker hasn't been happy with the quality of Australian Galaxy hops for 2 years, so we never rebrewed it... until now! This is a highly aromatic brew with melon, stone and tropical fruit aromas. The flavor is smooth and mellow making this a highly crushable beverage.
A bi-coastal collaboration between us and Tired Hands Brewing Co. This "strange & beautiful" beer is inspired by the post taco eating phenomenon when you incessantly scrub your hands yet they maintain that strong taco aroma. Brewed with tortilla chips in the mash, flaked maize, cumin, coriander, S&P, pasilla chiles, cilantro, lime, Citra & Motueka.
Smell the Colors
This ale is highly hopped with Simcoe and Citra and lesser amounts of Amarillo, and utilizes a good percentage of wheat malt. The colors will jump from your glass.This is new age hazy West Coast IPA with big notes of pineapple, orange, and stonefruit. Dry but silky, this is a joy to drink.
Hopped with generous additions of Nelson Sauvin, Mosaic & Citra this is one of our juiciest and favorite pale ales. It is a mini version of our double IPA Original Dankster. Notes of pineapple, kiwi, gooseberry, diesel, citrus and tropical fruits. Hold Me Closer Tiny Dankster!
Another Bad Omen
Get ready for this new Porter!
The very first Cellarmaker IPA! With Nelson Sauvin, Galaxy, Simcoe, and a touch of Columbus hops. Aromas of mango and overripe passion fruit, lychee and rambutan, pine, and 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!
