Welcome to Clandestine Brewing!

Some time ago, a plot was hatched among a few accomplished homebrewers, could it be possible to turn a passion into a business? After visiting a few nanobreweries for inspiration, we began working on plans for Clandestine Brewing. Now, the secret is out...

Our Beers

Full Beer List

Achtung

Beginning with water carefully built to replicate the high mineral content of Dortmund, only German malts are used to produce a strong lager with malty flavor and a full-bodied mouthfeel that is balanced with the addition of German Spalter hops. At 9.7% ABV, this is our imperial version of the style.

More details

Be A Big Knurd

This West Coast IPA packs a restrained bitterness with a punch of tropical fruit hop flavors and aromas of newer IPAs. Featuring Mosaic hops plus a few select others - this adds layers of mango, passion fruit, and piney dankness with a crisp clean finish.

More details

Bigfoot's Delight

This is a collaboration with a couple outstanding brewers in the homebrewing community. It was a blast to collaborate with Beast Bay Brewers (Sean & Indy) to rebrew their Best Of Show winning Hefeweizen from the Santa Clara County Fair Homebrew Competition. You and apparently Bigfoot will love the banana esters created by the German Hefeweizen yeast!

More details

Boast Coffee - Peru

Cold-brewed coffee from San Jose's own Boast Coffee Co.

More details

Bocklash

A very traditional amber Bavarian bock lager. Higher ABV than most German lagers, this beer is deeply rich and malty with some caramel, bread, and toast notes from the German malts. Hops are not a major presence in the flavor but give a little balance to the beer.

More details

Cream Soda

More details

Frères Belges

A classic Belgian-inspired Blond Ale featuring a malt bill of Pilsner, Wheat, and Aromatic malts. This malt bill combined with a flavorful Belgian yeast strain produces a slightly hazy, light gold ale that is malt forward, dry-finishing with a subtle spiciness.

More details

Hazy Ruminations

A New England style lactose IPA made with Mosaic and El Dorado hops. The combination of lactose and a generous amount of flaked oats provides a full body to this beer that compliments the hops quite nicely.

More details

KölschTonic

Ginger, turmeric, sarsaparilla, and nettle have been used traditionally for generations as a tonic to reduce inflammation in your body but this spicy combination was so yummy we decided to add it to our Kolsch. Enjoy!

More details

Milky Way Stout

This milk stout really emphasize the flavors of caramel, chocolate and cream. Starting with a fairly standard stout mash bill, we amp up the caramel and toffee flavors, by boiling a portion of the first runnings from the Mash Tun to a thick, sugary syrup- almost a beer caramel! Combined with the Lactose added later in the brewing process, this is one big, highly flavorful beer- but without a high alcohol punch.

More details

Tripel Agent

More details

Turncoat

At the brewery we go back and forth between craving the newer hazy NE IPAs and our favorite west coast IPAs. It could be said that Turncoat is a _traitor_ to the _Haze Craze_, but it actually blends the styles a little. Turncoat has a light malt bill and includes oat malt and flaked oats. It is moderately bitter and has been amply dry-hopped.

More details

Undercover

This is our kettle sour, Berliner-Weisse style ale made with fresh wet hops and infused with a heaping amount of raspberries from Gizdich Ranch in Watsonville. This is low in alcohol but extremely refreshing and enjoyable sour beer.

More details

V

A Vienna (amber) lager inspired by the our love of a couple Mexican amber lagers. Vienna lagers all but disappeared from their European origins being replaced by the more popular lighter colored lagers (Pilsners) or richer lagers (Maerzen, Dunkel). However, the Vienna lager tradition lives on in Mexico to this day.

    About Us

    We are passionate about brewing and united in our quest to produce beer of the highest quality. Meet the team...

    Adrian & Christine

    Growing up in Colorado, Adrian was surrounded by great craft breweries like Avery, Odell's and Left Hand. After a few misadventures with homebrewing in college and moving to California he took the hobby more seriously. Christine has seen this hobby grow to a garage-consuming obsession and now business. Somehow, she continues to put up with it.

    Favorite non-IPA style:
    Belgian Trippel

    Rob

    Rob considers himself a total beer nerd. He loves experimenting with different styles, ingredients and techniques as part of the brewing process.

    Favorite non-IPA style:
    Saison

    Colin & Liz

    A software engineer by day, Colin discovered what would come to be known as craft beer while in college and began homebrewing at about the same time. He returned to homebrewing several years ago, after a hiatus that included training for a number of endurance sports for charity, and enjoys a lot of the DIY aspect of the hobby -- both in making the actual beer, as well as the piecing together equipment. When not working or planning more brewing projects, he can often be found training for his next endurance race. Liz discovered brewing right before meeting Colin and continues to love to learn all that she can about styles and techniques.

    Favorite non-IPA style:
    Colin - Dortmunder Export
    Liz - Belgian Quad

    dWiGhT

    dWiGhT Mulcahy makes a living as a Senior Software Developer in the heart of Silicon Valley during the day but lives a dual life as an avid homebrewer during his free time. He has amassed over 200 ribbons with over a dozen BestOfShows in California and Texas winning multiple awards at National events. The winner of several ProAm events, he has brewed on several "big-boy" systems hoping one day to fulfill his dream of shoveling out grain from the mash tun for a living. Born in Texas but raised in Germany he calls himself a Native German Texan and loves his bier! Prost!

    Favorite non-IPA style:
