What’s On Tap At Cellarmaker

Updated Daily. Available in:




Technicolor Visions: Strawberry

Milkshake IPA 6.6% ABV 50 IBU
This is our take on a "west coast" milkshake IPA. Loaded with Albion strawberries in the whirlpool & fermenter, this aromatic IPA was dry hopped with berry-forward hops Nelson, Strata &Idaho 7. A measured lactose addition keeps it smooth & balanced, but not overly sweet & cloying. The finish has a nice stickiness, which is reminiscent of strawberry seeds & leaves. A great summer sipper. CONTAINS LACTOSE

Abel Tasman

Pilsner 5.2% ABV 32 IBU

Abel Tasman National Park is located at the northern most section of the southern island of New Zealand. During a recent trip to NZ, we were captivated by the park’s awe-inspiring beauty. While there, we spent crucial time selecting the best hops NZ has to offer. Enjoy a crisp pils with hopped with the world’s finest Nelson, Motueka, Riwaka, NZ Cascade and Wai-iti.


IPA 6.7% ABV 55 IBU

Sabro is a new hop out of the Hop Breeding Company that is catching many brewers’ attentions. This could be the most aromatic hop ever bred with far out aromas of kalamansi sweet lime and piña colada. We hopped this IPA mostly with Sabro and a smaller proportion of Citra and El Dorado.

Chronic the Juicehog

DIPA 8.2% ABV 56 IBU
Chronic finds himself in a new adventure, this time navigating twists and turns of the beer trading world. Cellarmaker and Brooklyn based Other Half Brewing come together to collaborate on this Double Dry Hopped Hazy DIPA hopped intensely with Nelson, Citra, Strata, Mosaic, Motueka and Sabro. Sounds like Chronic might have to lose a few rings to carry some aluminum juicy tubes.

Latte & Cigarettes

Smoked Coffee Porter 7.3% ABV 45 IBU

This Coffee and Cigarettes variant comes straight out of the La Marzocco espresso machine. Okay, that’s not true, but we were inspired by the steamed milk espresso drink. We added creamy and sweet lactose sugar along with Sightglass Banner Dark roast coffee for a more luscious and decadent take on our popular smoked coffee porter.CONTAINS LACTOSE.

Lil’ Nelmo

Pale Ale 5.9% ABV 40 IBU

It’s difficult to imagine a better combination of two hops than Nelson and Mosaic. We already know Mosaic plays well with so many other hops but when you infuse a beer with Mosaic’s tropical dankness and Nelson’s totally different tropical dankness you create an intense array of indica dominant headiness. Squeeze that all into a crushable pale ale and you may have what we consider a perfect beer without the couch lock.

Get Schwifty

IPA 6.7% ABV 55 IBU

After consulting with the one and only lyrical wordsmith genius that is Mr. Bulldobs, we decided that nothing says "schwifty" like a face ripping IPA. Brewed with four distinct hops, Strata, Riwaka, Galaxy and Simcoe. Get Schwifty is a juicy fruit bomb with notes of pineapple, mango, Grenache blanc juice and apricot.


Hoppy Blonde 5.8% ABV 15 IBU
Extensions could be a modern classic piece for violin, clarinet and theremin by Gyögy Ligeti; or a reference to fake hair. It is definitely the name of this beer which we brewed with our first assistant brewer Wade (of Wadecats fame) and Batson River Brewing in Maine. We used Maine grown Cascade hops as well as Riwaka and Nelson for a floral, spicy blonde ale.

Coupe de Ville

IPA 6.6% ABV 52 IBU
Brewed with California grown Feldblume Malt and Malted Oats from Admiral Maltings in Alameda, Coupe de Ville IPA was firmly kettle and dry hopped with Comet, Nelson Sauvin, and Simcoe. This IPA features a soft mouthfeel and dry finish, with aromas of green lemonpeel, soft evergreen, and a touch of wafting diesel.

Flocc Top

Hefeweizen 6.0% ABV 25 IBU
This wheat-laden Hefeweizen was fermented cool and dry hopped with two select lots of Australian Galaxy to complement the natural banana esters from the yeast. The result is a super refreshing, silky soft, summer crusher that reminds us of strawberry banana daiquiris and tiny umbrellas.

4:1 Nectarine

Barrel Aged Sour 6.5% ABV 15 IBU
4 pounds per gallon of Le Grand nectarines from Sunnyland Orchards were added to a French-style country ale, inoculated with our house culture and aged in oak for 6 months. The result is an incredibly aromatic brew that inspires vivid thoughts of rows of trees weighed down by ripening stone fruit. Restrained acidity, hints of oak and a touch of earthy hops add layers of nuance to what is a potently fruity beer.

Son of a Son of a Pale Ale

Barrel-Aged Sour Ale 6.2% ABV 30 IBU
A simple experiment of aging an easy drinking pale ale in oak with one of our house cultures of brettanomyces and bacteria. The piney, dank and tropical hops have been enhanced by the biotransformative powers of the yeast, accentuated by the lactic acid produced by the bacteria.

Little Dipster

Munich-Style Helles 5.5% ABV 18 IBU
Beer shouldn’t always have to blow your mind with far out flavors & unique aromas. Helles is the perfect style for no thinking, just drinking. Step mashed for max authenticity with 100% German pilsner malt, a kiss of German Mittelfrüh hops for balance but a focus on clean malt flavor & crushability. Brewed in collab with Resident Culture Brewing of North Carolina.

Farmer Direct: Flavor Supreme Pluot

BA Sour with Fruit 6.2% ABV 27 IBU
We blended stainless fermented and oak aged mixed culture beers on top of super ripe and red juice dripping Flavor Supreme Pluots from Kashiwase Farms in Winton, California. We then further aged the beer in neutral red wine barrels until the fruit refermentation was complete and the flavors were smooth and complex. This is an amazing expression of the fruit’s aromatics and intense juicy flavor. Closing your eyes you can almost taste the skin and flesh. The beer finishes with notes of earthy hops and a clean acidity.

Bourbon Bbl Imperial Coffee & Cigarettes

BA Imperial Porter 13.7% ABV 45 IBU
After 14 months in Willet Bourbon barrels, Imperial Coffee and Cigarettes, our strong smoked coffee porter, has been transformed. Even more silky, enlivened with rich tannins and hints of bourbon, layered with notes of vanilla and bold Sightglass dark roast coffee, this is a beer meant to be sipped and studied. Allow the glass to warm for several minutes to allow all of the elements to show themselves.

Lost Wisdom

Solera Saison
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.

Buck O’ Five

For this 4th of July Weekend, we have a new IPA! Made with Citra, Simcoe, Galaxy, Mosaic, and Enigma. Let's all celebrate safely and toast to the people who sacrificed for us to have these privileges. Freeedom isn't free! No, there's a hefty frickin' fee. And if you don't throw in your buck o' five, who will?

Party God

Brewed with Pale, Pilsner & Spelt malts and hopped with Nelson, HBC 344, XJA463 & Centennial . Due to the two experimental hops, Nelson & Centennial, this beer has familiar elements & new. Over the top melon, perfumy floral & herbaceous qualities from the XJA & Centennial, plus lemon, eucalyptus & grape from the 344 & Nelson.

Yolo Once!

They say you only Yolo we threw a bunch of rare New Zealand Riwaka hops alongside healthy doses of American Simcoe, Mosaic, Citra and Columbus. Notes of passionfruit, stonefruit, and subtle resin. Bright and unique.

Seven Wonders

Pale Ale
Cellarmaker selected their seven favorite hops and used them strategically to maximize their best qualities. Come experience the rainbow's edge of Citra, Mosaic, Sterling, Nelson, Southern Passion, Simcoe and Motueka!

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 amber colored 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.
