Bright Intentions

icon2 can icon2 bottle icon2 growler
IPA 6.8 % ABV 95 IBU
Maybe West Coast IPA hasn’t been forgotten about but it sure as hell has been watching the IPA Games from home. 2020 is the year of West Coast resurgence, as it gets off the couch and kicks hazy IPA square in its juicy face. Bright Intentions is layered with tasty and aromatic hop oils from Mosaic, Strata, HBC 630, Idaho 7 &  Simcoe. Heeeyawwww!

Radio Edit

icon2 can icon2 bottle icon2 growler
Pale Ale
Radio Edit is a hazy West Coast pale ale. The haze comes from protein and a high rate of dry hopping that leaves the beer opaque. The West Coast part means it's aggressive with crisp hop flavor, an assertive bitterness and a lingering grassy finish. Well hopped with Galaxy, Citra and Motueka the beer has aromas and flavors of lemon and orange peel, jasmine, melon and pine.

Tiny Dankster

icon2 can icon2 bottle icon2 growler
Pale Ale
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!

DDH Mo’ Nelson

icon2 can icon2 bottle icon2 growler
Mosaic and Nelson hops are two of our top faves. This beer is packed with fruit from these killer hops. Enjoy as they capoeira around your dome. Cantaloupe, Gooseberries, Blueberry and a slight touch of that dank diesel character that only our good friend Nelson can bring to the table. Now with double the dry-hop!!

Repeating Symbols

icon2 can icon2 bottle icon2 growler
West Coast Pale 5.2% ABV 22 IBU
Hopped highly with Galaxy and Riwaka, Repeating Symbols is super tropical with aromas of lychee, Sauvignon and Concord grape, mango, and a hint strawberry. We kept this beer slim and crushable so you can slam pint after pint of this hoppy elixir.


icon2 can icon2 bottle icon2 growler
Hazy West Coast IPA 6.8% ABV 52 IBU
If you believe in fairies, great adventures, & never growing up, this beer is for you. Bangerang is full of tropical bright flavors that will have your taste buds thinking happy thoughts & ready to fly. You can taste all the Neverland zests & tangs like watermelon, brine, berry, lime & spice. Motueka, Citra, Nelson, CTZ, Amarillo, Sterling + Rufio! Rufio! Ru-Fi-OOOOOOOOOOOOOh!

Lil’ Nelmo

icon2 can icon2 bottle icon2 growler
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.

Dank Of The West

icon2 can icon2 bottle icon2 growler
IPA 6.5% ABV 100 IBU
You know we love anything DANK, so when we tried this oily, tangy, ganja-smelling IPA, we had to label it with our first dank pun in years! Strata and Idaho 7 lead the way with bright tropical fruit and sour diesel spice with a touch of Centennial and Simcoe for undertones of citrusy terpenes.

Zero Complaints

icon2 can icon2 bottle icon2 growler
IPA 6.3% ABV 54 IBU
There's plenty to complain about in life, but beer should hardly ever be on that list. We've guaranteed your pleasure with this hazy IPA that features some of our favorite hops that always put us at ease. No need to protest the generous use of Citra, Nelson and Strata. Chill.

Present Tense

icon2 can icon2 bottle icon2 growler
IPA 6.2% ABV 51 IBU

Strata 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.

F.U.B.A.R. 2

icon2 can icon2 bottle icon2 growler
Smoothie Ale 5.1% ABV 8 IBU
Introducing the second beer in a series of heavily fruited SMOOTHIE ales. Fruited Up Beyond All Reason is brewed with a simply ridiculous amount of fruit and sweetened with loads of milk sugar. Strawberry, peach, apricot and passionfruit infuse this tart ale with incredible fruit character never before seen in a Cellarmaker beer! CONTAINS LACTOSE

Mt. Nelson

icon2 can icon2 bottle icon2 growler
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.

Green Park Lager

icon2 can icon2 bottle icon2 growler
Italian-style Pilsner 5% ABV 51 IBU

Highland Park Brewery, Green Cheek Beer Co. and Cellarmaker have combined their lager knowledge to create a dry, extremely pale but distinctly Californian pilsner. Hopped with German Perle in the kettle for a classic spicy base and then lightly dry hopped with American Sterling (an American take on Czech Saaz hops) for an aromatically fruity accent.

A Salute to Classic Beer Styles: Traditional Pastry Stout

icon2 can icon2 bottle icon2 growler
Traditional Pastry Stout 11.7% ABV 40 IBU
If it wasn’t for the Russian Empress Catherine the Great, the globe may have never known the pastry stout. Finding the base beer kinda meh, adoring sycophants of the crown would add exotic ingredients in an attempt to win the favor of their Queen. This particular combination of banana, coconut, marshmallow, cacao and vanilla was her personal favorite; she always rated it five stars. Collab with Green Cheek Beer Co. CONTAINS: EGGS, BANANA, COCONUT

Barrel-Aged Batch 1000

icon2 can icon2 bottle icon2 growler
Bourbon BA Barleywine 13.8% ABV 50 IBU
We brewed Batch 1000 in collaboration with Gabe Fletcher of Anchorage Brewing Company, a barleywine savant of sorts. Gabe helped us hit the ground running on a style that we had never brewed before. The entirety of this batch, save one small keg, went into bourbon barrels. This version was singularly aged in an Eagle Rare barrel for one year.

Well High!

Helles Lager 5.4% ABV 20 IBU

We get excited about classic beer styles, especially when it's a lager. Lagers like this helles take more time to make than most ales, but your patience is rewarded with a clean flavor and crisp finish. Helles is brewed with light malts and a kiss of German hops to create a smooth, nourishing beer with just enough hops to make it extremely refreshing.

Mild Smiles

icon2 can icon2 bottle icon2 growler
English Dark Mild 3.3% ABV 18 IBU
Milds are one of the original session beers, and this modernized offering clocks in at a whopping 3.3% abv! The malt bill of this beer is only Maris Otter and Black malt. Notes of rustic bread crust are balanced against Target, Perle, and HBC 344 hops. Finishing surprisingly dry, Mild Smiles is served nitrogenated for extra smooth optics and mouth coating satisfaction.

Lost Wisdom

icon2 can icon2 bottle icon2 growler
Solera Saison 6.0% ABV 15 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 #8

Ancient Idols

icon2 can icon2 bottle icon2 growler
Helles Lager 5.5% ABV 15 IBU
A far-out collab brewed with Asheville, NC’s Burial Beer Co. We loaded up a tank with locally grown whole cluster Vermentino grapes from Ryme Cellars in Sonoma County. A wonderful crossroads between wine & beer straddling a line that seems to shift back & forth between the two as you enjoy drinking it.

Wizard Hand Of Evil

icon2 can icon2 bottle icon2 growler
IPA 6.8% ABV 66 IBU
Wizard Hand of Evil is a sinisterly drinkable IPA with aromas of just ripened pineapple and Bartlett pears. A balanced malt profile and just enough bitterness on the back to make you go back for another sip. The all-seeing eye that sees! Hops: Mosaic, Nelson Sauvin & Idaho 7.

Tears In Rain

icon2 can icon2 bottle icon2 growler
Triple IPA 10 ABV 75 IBU
The team from Toppling Goliath came through during Beer Week & brewed a follow up to last year’s Anthropogenic Extinction IPA. This dank TIPA uses super sticky Strata, Idaho 7 and Simcoe to create layers upon layers of ridiculously intense tropical & citrusy hop!

Baby Blammo

icon2 can icon2 bottle icon2 growler
Coconut Stout
Coming in at a whopping 14.5%, this is BLAMMO! Aged on oak with over 8 lbs per barrel of coconut added. Rich with flavors of intense roasted malts, dark chocolate, subtle smoke and mouth-coating coconut oils. The finish is woody and earthy with hints of bitter raw cacao. It's better than bad it's good!

Mo’ Strata

icon2 can icon2 bottle icon2 growler
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!

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 2L stainless steel growlers with our logo 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.
