What’s On Tap At Cellarmaker

Updated Daily. Available in:




Pines In Lines

Double IPA 8% ABV 99 IBU

We hopped this hazy DIPA to the MAXXXX with Galaxy, Nelson and the smallest pinch of Sabro and incorporated 25% oats to create a super chewy but not overly sweet beer. We think we did a good job increasing the body of this beer but not by just making it more sugary (a common technique these days). It’s got heft but balance between bitterness and sweetness with neither being over the top.

Structure Chill

Pale 5% ABV 45 IBU

Cellarmaker brewery employee James took some operating liberties with this beer to see how fast we could go from brew day to ice cold beer. In seven days this beer was cold, although it needed a few days cold to smooth out. Brewed with light colored malts and hopped with Nelson, Idaho 7 and Simcoe, this beer is crisp and light with hints of pineapple sorbet.


IPA 6.7% ABV 44 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, Sterling, Centennial and Galaxy. This is a dry and softly bittered IPA with pleasant aromas of pineapple, strawberry and orange.

Mo’ Simcoe

IPA 6.9 ABV 58 IBU
Another pairing with our cherished Mosaic hop. The Simcoe we selected earlier this year has a really cool apricot and blackberry character that accompanies Mosaic's melon and guava character really well. Mo’ Simcoe is tropical, dry and resinous but also has a hop sweetness that rounds it all out. West Coast for life!

Mt. Nelson

Pale Ale 5.7 ABV 36 IBU
Hopped with 100% Nelson Sauvin hops. As you contemplate the path to the top of Mt. Nelson think about the 2.5 lbs. per barrel of New Zealand Nelson Sauvin hops in this precarious pale ale. Ruminate on the diesely, tropical fruit and melon aromas. May we suggest a word of advice: it's not the summit of Mt. Nelson you need to worry about, rather, the way down to the bottom.

Permanent Daylight

IPA 6.8 ABV 56 IBU
Sticky and resinous; citrus and tropical fruit; Permanent Daylight delivers attractive hoppy flavors from some of our best hops. Nelson Sauvin, Citra and Centennial collaborate on bright aromas of Meyer lemon, pineapple and melon, followed by flavors of tangerine zest, white watermelon flesh and pine. A perfect example of what we call West Coast haze.

Present Tense

IPA 6.3% ABV 51 IBU
Strata (brand new hop variety developed at Oregon State) is loaded with hyper flavors. It only recently became available in commerical quantities and we’ve thoroughly enjoyed seeing how it plays w/ other hop varieties we know & love. This IPA pairs Strata with Galaxy, Mosaic and Simcoe, 3 terpene-intense varieties. Notes of red starburst, apricot, pomegranate and the finest OG Kush you’ve ever had.

Silver Hours

As Cellarmaker explores how fruity and juicy we can make an IPA, that is, go beyond IPA, we like to every once in a while take a step back and brew within the guidelines that got us here. For Silver Hours, we upped the malt a touch with some Vienna and Munich and hit the brew hard with Columbus hops for classic piney, dank flavors before adding Simcoe, Centennial and some Nelson.

Part Time Lover

Pale Ale 5.7% ABV 31 IBU
Call me up, ring once, hang up the phone. I'll go to Cellarmaker anyways with a growler on loan. We are strangers by day, lovers by night, can’t stop thinking about that hoppy bite. If I'm with friends & we should meet, don't care if any of us get a seat. Knowing it's so wrong, but feeling so right, buy some jerky & chips to go with my pint. Hops: Galaxy, Simcoe, Citra & HBC344

Curry Visions

Curry IPA 7.3 ABV 38 IBU
Developed and brewed in collaboration with Ruse Brewing from Portland west, this culinary IPA is loaded with the aromas and flavors of some of our favorite Panang Curries. Lemongrass, coriander, tumeric, cumin seed powder, cilantro and thai chilis were coupled with Simcoe, Motueka, Mosaic and Sabro in the boil. In the fermenter we added coconut and makrut lime leaves alongside a hefty dry hop of Cashmere, Sabro, Mosaic and Simcoe. Its all there, simmered down for you - the result is a delightfully balanced and quaffable IPA that would pair well with a bowl of rice.

Ft. Simcoe

IPA 6.3 ABV 51 IBU
In our neverending quest to wrap our heads around each of our favorite hop varieties, we have begun not only to do single hop beers with 1 example of that hop, but we are specifically using 3 selected lots of Simcoe pellets. This trifecta should offer the ultimate Simcoe experience.

Fake Gold

Blonde Ale 4.6% ABV 15 IBU
Fake Gold is made for tipping back that incredibly drinkable summer beer that at once refreshes and soothes the soul and thirst. Hopped minimally with spicy, citrusy hops too keep the flavor interesting but light and ephemeral.

Genuine Excitement

Dry-Hopped Lager 6.9% ABV 30 IBU
We are genuinely excited about this cold conditioned lager that was dry hopped with HBC 630, Idaho 7, Nelson, NZ Cascade, and Strata. Naturally carbonated, Genuine Excitement is a crisp alternative to those sticky IPAs, and features terpy notes of dried apricot and distant cannabis.

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. This 100% NZ hopped pilsner is the result of that time and inspiration. Hops: Wai-iti, Nelson, Riwaka, NZ Cascade, Motueka

Another Bad Omen

Porter 5.2% ABV 34 IBU

Unforeseen elements arrive and clash and another bad omen emerges. The writing was on the wall for us to once again brew this sessionable porter that is chewy and rich yet has a restrained ABV. Don’t be dissuaded by the color of this beer, it is good for cold or hot days alike!

Legally Bitter

English Bitter 4.1% ABV 25 IBU
The verdict’s in, Cellarmaker loves bitters! We have no objection to making full flavored, low alcohol, crushable beers. We brew Legally Bitter with a significant portion of spicy rye plus English crystal malts which bring a nice nutty, toffee like character. We singularly hopped this ale with HBC 344, an experimental hop variety with citrus, floral and earthy notes.

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.
