Truth Hurts

IPA 6.8% ABV 51 IBU
DNA test is in, it turns out this is 100% an IPA. Hopped with Strata, Galaxy & Simcoe, we kept this beer dry but built up the body at the same time with brewery calisthenics. It is great all the time, not just when it has to be from aromas of papaya & lime that lead into fluffy flavors of Meyer lemon, pomelo flesh & whole wheat sourdough. No need for something more exciting here.

Alien LifeForm

IPA 6.8% ABV 62 IBU
This new IPA is totally out of this world! Hiding inside your glass is a massive amount of Galaxy & a cosmic dusting of Simcoe, Mosaic & Centennial. This exploration in flavor reminds us of a day trip to Melmac, a different world with a green sky, blue grass & a purple sun. This should quench your vast appetite for hop forward flavors… and beyond!

Dobis

Pale Ale 5.7% ABV 36 IBU
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!

Professor Pastry

Pastry Stout 12.5% ABV 50 IBU
Pastry Stout 101 is taught by Kyle of Horus Aged Ales, a dynamic artist/mad scientist type of person, who came to Cellarmaker to brew this collaboration. We learned a lot from Kyle about making these decadent beers that are so thick you almost have to chew them. Kyle, also known as Professor Pastry, helped us brew this robust chocolatey stout to which we added organic graham cracker, organic marshmallow creme and Tahitian vanilla bean. We think we got an A.

Coffee & Cigarettes

Smoked Coffee Porter 7.3% ABV 45 IBU
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. This time we added Mostra Fortissimo espresso beans--a blend of Brazil, Guatemala, Indonesia Sumatra, and Ethiopia Yirgacheffe--to add complex layers of nutty chocolate and rich earthiness.

Orange Whipped Dream

Milkshake IPA 6.6 % ABV 40 IBU
This creamy treat is really cool! Utilizing the unfermentable sweetness of lactose, savory organic Madagascar vanilla and California orange zest we layer in these fun flavors onto the base of a hazy, soft IPA. The result is a kinda sweet, kinda tart, citrusy beer dripping with fruit from hops and orange and a cocoa butter chewiness accentuated by the smooth vanilla. Close your eyes and experience the Whipped Dream.

Zest Side Story

Blonde Ale 6.1% ABV 18 IBU
A dry & crushable blonde ale that achieves a harmonious balance between the elements of pilsner & wheat malts, citrus forward hops, an aromatic yeast and a touch of lemon zest. This is a perfect beer to drink in the resurgence of the hot weather! You have the magic!

Admiration

IPA 7.3% ABV 51 IBU
We originally brewed Admiration with a couple of breweries in mind combining what we believed were the best flavors from the best IPAs in the world. It is hopped with Nelson, Citra, Centennial and Galaxy.

Mirth Mobile

Double IPA 9.5% ABV 87 IBU
Is this the real life? Is this just fantasy? Caught in a landslide, no escape from reality. Open your eyes, look up to the skies and see... This new DIPA will happily rock you into the new year. Hopped with New Zealand Cascade, Simcoe, Nelson & Strata you can party on Wayne. The only thing missing here are the red vines.

Trimming Trees

Mixed Culture Ale 6.7% ABV 30 IBU
Two of our best buds, Highland Park Brewery (LA) and Green Cheek Beer Co (Orange), collaborated on this mixed-culture ale with us. We added douglas fir branches to the kettle for a gin botanical like spice quality. We then aged the beer in French oak for many moons with each brewery’s house culture. Celebrate the holidays with friends.

Bourbon Best Fiends

BA Porter 9.8% ABV 50 IBU
We aged our strong porter, Best Fiends, in Willet Bourbon barrels for ten months. The beer exits the barrel transformed with richer dark chocolate notes, hints of tobacco and fruit leather as well as woody barrel notes that lend a hint of vanilla. The booze is well integrated, not overpowering what is on the smaller end of the dark beers we would ever put in a spirit barrel.

Sonic Nurse

Pilsner 4.2% ABV 44 IBU
Look what the nurse brought you: your daily dose of pils! Here at Cellarmaker, all patients & customers are required to take their pils. No buts! Classic German Pilsner with 100% German pilsner malt & Hallertau Mittelfrüh and Hersbrucker hops for a bready, spicy flavor & crackery, floral aromas. 100% naturally carbonated for lively bubbles that release the aroma & add a refreshing bite.

Monster Manual

Brown Ale 6.9% ABV 34 IBU
We brewed our interpretation of a classic English brown ale. This beer is loaded with specialty malts such as dark Munich, light and medium caramel malts for deep, rich flavor, wheat and oats for supportive body and a touch of black malt for color and roast. We then lightly dry hopped with Goldings for that unmistakable English aroma.

Distorter

Brown Porter 6.5% ABV 45 IBU
This brown porter exemplifies the quaffable style and its nuanced structure. Neither too roasty, too chocolatey, too sweet, too bitter, Distorter presents varied deep malt flavors in harmony with a medium dose of hops. No adjuncts such as coffee or vanilla have been added; indeed it is the antithesis of a “pastry porter.” Enjoy its restraint and subtlety.

Lost Wisdom

Solera Saison 6% ABV 7 IBU
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. This is batch date 6/14/18 for those who are taking note.  Bottles still available 🙂

Simcoe Sessions

Single Hop Pale Ale 6.2% ABV 37 IBU
Hop sourcing is not as straight forward as it might seem; especially for a brewery as small as Cellarmaker. Everyone loves Simcoe hops, but Simcoe isn't Simcoe, isn't Simcoe. There are many different farms & there can be variation (farm to farm & year to year). After some trial & error, we have assembled worthwhile techniques to brewing with the best Simcoe out there. We believe the effort comes through in the flavor.

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!

Turok Juice

IPA 7.3% ABV 30 IBU
We applied our expressive yeast blend to our tried and true “Turok: Mosaic Hunter“ recipe. Hopped with 3 different lots of incredible, specially selected Mosaic hops this beer is truly dynamic and shows off one of our favorite varieties. Notes of stonefruit, melon, and resin with an incredibly pungent aroma!

YOLO Once

IPA 7% ABV 45 IBU
They say you only Yolo once...so 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.

Mo’ Strata

IPA 54 IBU
New comer Strata hops are showcased here alongside some good ol’ Mosaic. Strata is really cool. It’s a very weedy hop. Yes, that weed. It reeks of pineapple, lemon & Bonnaroo. We think the guava, tangerine & pine elements of the Mosaic team up perfectly to make this focussed, dank and fruity IPA. This is a West Coast IPA, so that means it’s clear, crisp & resinous. Drink up!

Staff Slam

IPA
Staff Slam is a hoppy, hazy IPA we brewed for the Monk’s Kettle anniversary. SF craft beer drinkers have been fortunate to walk into this modest Mission establishment for high quality food & a world class beer list for 11 years now. Hopped with a blend of Simcoe Centennial, Citra & Mosaic. Expect bright citrus & tropical fruit aromas & a smooth body & finish.

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.
