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

ALS: Stronger Things

A Triple IPA brewed with the 2019 ALS Hop Blend at 5lb/bbl of hops.

More details

BigNose Mybock

Clandestine's 'BigNose MyBock' is a well-hopped, strong golden lager that showcases the short list of German malts used to brew it. A clean, crisp lager despite it's alcohol content, BigNose is a tribute to the traditional beers of Bavaria. Despite the additional hops over a Bock, this is a malty draft that is never astringent.

More details

Boycott

The verb ‘boycott’ came from Charles Boycott, an English landlord so disagreeable and disliked that he was shunned by an entire village thus originating the term ‘to boycott’. Our Boycott Best Bitter, though, is much more agreeable. Boycott is made with Scottish Golden Promise malt, dark English crystal malt, with additions of UK Target, UK Goldings, UK Jester, and American Centennial hops.

More details

Brush Pass

A German rye beer made with a hefeweizen yeast to provide some banana and clove notes. A little spicy character from the rye malt is a nice finishing touch

More details

Ctrl-Alt-Del

Inspired by the classic altbiers of Düsseldorf's Altstadt (Old Town), Clandestine's Ctrl-Alt-Del is a cool fermented, amber ale brewed that has a great balance of malt and bitterness complimented with the characteristic spicy/floral Noble hops aroma.

More details

Dwarf Galaxy

This beer is dedicated to our many beer loving friends who clamor for flavorful but low ABV session beers. Dwarf Galaxy is such a beer and is modeled after our Milky Way Stout but with a hint of an English Dark Mild Ale. We find the lower ABV when done properly can enrich the chocolate, roasty, sweet flavors of a Milk Stout.

More details

Elsie's Marzen

This malty and smooth German lager was the creation of our good friend Scott Satterthwaite and won a gold medal at the 2017 National Homebrew Competition. Named after the brewer Scott's 107 year old grandmother. Elsie from Chelsea was famous for her fresh baked soft pretzels and this beer is a tribute to her. We are honored to collaborate with Scott to faithfully reproduce this gold medal winner for our Oktoberfest.

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

Hacktoberfest

Our German style festbier. This German light lager is a flavorful version of the beers served in the Munich Oktoberfest tents.

More details

Hokus Smokus

Inspired by the Polish Grodziskie smoked wheat ale. Grodziskie (also known by the German name Grätzer) is a historical blonde ale featuring large amounts of oak smoked wheat malt and low alcohol. Our version also features an addition of cherrywood smoked barley to complement the oak smoked wheat malt.

More details

Olallieberry Undercover

A kettle sour, Berliner-Weisse style ale made with 30lbs/BBL of 'Olallie' blackberry from Gizdich Ranch in Watsonville. This is a low in alcohol but extremely refreshing and enjoyable sour beer.

More details

Samba Juice

Collaboration with Strike Brewing Co in San Jose! This tropical kettle sour is inspired by the Catharina style kettle sours of Brazil. A wheat-heavy base is soured quickly before conditioning on pineapple and guava. Bright acidity blends with wonderful fruit character to create an incredibly refreshing brew.

More details

TCP/IPA

TCP/IP is the underlying network protocol of the Internet specifying how data should be packetized, addressed, routed, and other exciting stuff. With this year being the 50th anniversary of ARPANet, the first predecessor of the Internet, it seems a perfect time for us to introduce TCP/IPA! This juicy double IPA is full of TCP hops. Tomahawk, Citra and "Pals" (Centennial, Amarillo, Bravo, Strata, and Lotus).

More details

Tipsy Hipster

A hazy IPA brewed that prominently features Simcoe and Chinook hops plus a few other hops during the boil. Dry hops are then added both during and after fermentation to accentuate hop aroma. The malt base of American 2-row Barley malt, and sizable addition of flaked oats provides a smooth mouthfeel without getting in the way of the hops.

More details

TR4

TR4 is a German-style Leichtes Wizen which essentially means a light hefeweizen style ale that is still rich and flavorful like a traditional hefeweizen but at a lower alcohol level. This is a fantastic beer to defeat the summer heat!

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

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!
