What’s On Tap At Cellarmaker

Updated Daily. Available in:




Thrash Lizard

IPA 6.6% ABV 43 IBU
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

Oatland Haze

Oat Cream DIPA 8.4% ABV 99 IBU
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 6.3% ABV 25 IBU
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

Pale Ale 5.7% ABV 39 IBU
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!

Galaxy Blaster

IPA 6.8 % ABV 48 IBU
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.

Ras Trent

Pale Ale 5.1% ABV 35 IBU
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

Hop Killah

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.

Crush Hour

Small Pale Ale 4.8% ABV 40 IBU

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!

Insanity Lager

Czech-Style Amber Lager 5.3% ABV 25 IBU
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.


IPA 6.4% ABV 55 IBU
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.

Wheat-end Warrior

Pale Wheat 5.8% ABV 22 IBU
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 4.8% ABV 40 IBU

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

IPA 6.8% ABV 41 IBU
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.

Taco Hands

IPA 7.0% ABV 50 IBU
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

IPA 6.8% ABV 45 IBU
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.

Tiny Dankster

Pale Ale 5.7% ABV 38 IBU
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

Porter 5.3% ABV 35 IBU
Get ready for this new Porter!

Hop Slangin’

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!

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.
