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

A Brief History of Hops (ALS)

A low IBU double-IPA dry-hopped with 4.5 lbs per barrel of the “Ales for ALS” hop blend dry and made with a full-bodied grain bill featuring Rahr 2-row malt along with a touch of Golden Promise and Munich malts.

More details

All Day All Bay

A collaboration with New World Ales (San Jose, CA), this saison was made with all local ingredients: malt from Admiral Maltings (Alameda, CA), yeast from GigaYeast (San Jose, CA) and hops/kumquats from New Word Ales. The result is a perfectly refreshing summertime beer!

More details

Boast Coffee - Peru

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

More details

Broken Bitter

A traditional English strong bitter with a simple malt bill of floor malted Golden Promise and a touch of Carastan then well-hopped with the English hop partnership of East Kent Goldings & Fuggles.

More details

Calmer Than You Are

An aggressively hopped pale ale with Centennial, Amarillo and Simcoe hops. This aggression will not stand, man.

More details

dAlt

Inspired by the classic altbiers of Düsseldorf's Altstadt (Old Town), Clandestine's dAlt 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

Et Nobis Brute

Another in our line of "brut" beers. As the name of the style suggests, this is an especially dry IPA made so by adding enzymes to increase fermentability. This beer is hopped with Citra, Mosaic and Azacca hops.

More details

Fifth Column

Our English-inspired brown ale has characteristics of English Porter with its brown malt toastiness but rather than finishing dry and roasty ends with a pleasing toffee sweetness.

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

Hopothetical: BRU-1

A SMaSH with the experimental BRU-1 hop. This hop contributes aromas of pineapple and stone fruit that are backed by a soft spice.

More details

Mango Lassi

This kettle sour takes its inspiration from the popular Indian drink. Made with lactose, mangoes and just a hint of black cardamom, it is both tart and refreshing!

More details

Passion Crime

A West Coast fruit IPA that features Citra and El Dorado hops along with a medley of some of our favorite fruit flavors. This fruit IPA contains Passionfruit, Guava, and Blood Orange which complements the hop character quite nicely!

More details

Pilsner Urkel

Czech Pilsners are fuller and more malty than their German cousins but still perfectly refreshing for summer! "Did I do that?"

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

WITSEC

A Belgian style wheat beer made in a traditional manner with raw wheat, chamomile and orange zest. Light, refreshing and great for a hot summer 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:
