Tis the Season to drink hoppy. A new IPA is what you need to feel jolly this time of year. Hazy & fresh with expressive yeast this is the beverage to lift the fog. Loaded up with Centennial & experimental hop HBC 630 aromas of tropical fruit & citrus fill the air. Follow one down in merry measure with a crowler to take home to treasure.
Introducing the first 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. Raspberry, blackberry, tart cherry, guava and passionfruit infuse this tart ale with incredible fruit character never before seen in a Cellarmaker beer! Contains: Lactose
Two of the hardest hitting hops bring the FIRE in this incredibly fruity IPA. Strata, a limey citrus and tangy weed like hop teams up perfectly with Galaxy, easily the most vibrant of hops, which seems soaked in pineapple/orange/guava juice. We kept this beer hazy and soft for the most juicy experience we can give you.
Conjoined Triangles of Success
DDH Triple IPA
As if brewing beer wasn’t cool enough Cellarmaker and buds Other Half and Monkish were asked to brew a 4-way collaborative beer with & for the amazing crew of HBO’s Silicon Valley. Presenting “Conjoined Triangles of Success,” a hazy Triple IPA brewed in San Francisco, Los Angeles & New York City in celebration of the series finale of Silicon Valley. For those who haven’t seen the show, Conjoined Triangles of Success is a reference to the satirical business ideal of compromise between Engineering, Manufacturing, Sales & Growth. Our version is A DDH Triple IPA brewed with rolled oats to create a viscous body & chewy mouthfeel. Hopped with Nelson Sauvin from New Zealand, Galaxy from Australia, Mosaic from Washington State & Idaho 7 hops. Notes of unripe pineapple, peach Haribos, sauvignon blanc grapes & freshly cut pine. 10% ABV
Big Ole’ IPA
A chewy monster of a Hazy IPA loaded with hops throughout the brewing process for deep saturation of flavor. Aromas of passionfruit, pineapple & lime. Flavors of piña colada, blood orange & pine sap! The beer calls for quite the recipe. We have a heavy hand of Mosaic, a good amount of Simcoe, a bunch of Citra, a bushel of Galaxy, a pinch of Simcoe, a dash of Motueka & a sprinkle of Sabro.
A soft and juicy Mosaic single hop pale ale that uses two awesome lots of 2018 crop year Mosaic. We ferment with an expressive yeast to add even more tropical fruit character to a hop profile already loaded with passionfruit, melon and pot club. Drink more pale ale and frolic about like lil' Momo.
Now with even more rice! We upped the amount of rice, lowered the abv, and added more late kettle hop additions to make Rice Dream even crispier and more crushable. Rice Dream #2 was fermented low-and-slow, naturally carbonated, and cold conditioned. The result is a sud suckers’ dream of a pale and balanced beer.
English Dark Mild
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.
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!
Board Of Crustees
This is a rebrew of the Hazy IPA collab with our buds from the just opened Slice Beer Company. We pooled our years of hop knowledge to make crushable juice for you. Expressive yeast and hop infused from top to bottom with Nelson and Strata! We know you’ll enjoy this beer from these two pizza focused, we mean hop focused breweries!
Cellarmaker After Dark
A highly drinkable dark lager with enticing aromas of bitter chocolate, third wave coffee and toasted almonds. The flavor follows with dusty cocoa, burnt sugar, dried fig and sassafras. Fermented cool and then conditioned cold for many weeks! This is what we drink after work.
We conditioned a small portion of Welcomed Waves, our classic saison, with brettanomyces for an even more rustic brew. Originally fermented with a blend of yeasts, naturally carbonated & cold conditioned, this brew features old world hops & aged Styrian Golding to make a complex yet quaffable saison with added earthiness and dried fruit character from the brett aging.
Aromas of lemon and lime, orange candy, and geranium blossom come together with the crackery malt forming something reminiscent of a certain children's fruit cereal. The flavor is clean and balanced with juicy hops and bready malt and a lingering grassy bitterness.
Pilsner is enjoying a recent resurgence in popularity. What is it about this style that excites a brewer's joie de vivre? Maybe the light malt flavors supporting enticingly spicy hop aromas (without getting in their way), and the mouth-watering pronounced hop flavor, all within a low-alcohol package that keeps you coherent. It's a style that invigorates, not incapacitates -- so drink up! Prost!
Coffee Sessions: Ritual
Our Coffee Sessions beers are vessels for featuring the outstanding local coffees of the Bay Area. Our latest “session” was done with Ritual Coffee. We used Costa Rican Cerro Buena Vista, described as having fruit punch, chocolate & brown butter notes. The base beer is moderate in ABV, mellow in roast and sweetened with milk sugar to help highlight the potent coffee aromas & flavors. CONTAINS LACTOSE
Orange Whipped Dream
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.
Why is there a question mark where International Bitterness Units (IBU) is? Because we have no idea how to measure the bitterness of this beer. We added hops into the wort post boil after lowering the temperature below the point where isomerization (the creation of bitter compounds from Alpha acids) happens. The result, a beer with very little bitterness that comes only from other bitter elements of the hops. We hope you enjoy this 100% Australian Enigma hopped lightly bittered blonde!
Wild Gooseberry Chase
We love New Zealand Nelson Sauvin. It is by far our favorite hop. No other hop has such a wide range of aromas and flavors so it’s perfect for a single hop beer like this. We used four different lots of Nelson (different acres and blends) in this beer that we hand selected while in NZ from a singular farm to show off Nelson’s best qualities.
I got a fever and the only prescription is more cowbell and more Riwaka. This fresh track is a dynamite pale ale that will have you exploring the space. Made with 100 percent New Zealand Riwaka hops this pale ale has all the tropical notes to give you a smash hit.
Spiced Amber Lager
Amber lager spiced with ginger, star anise, clove and nutmeg.
