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

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

Coffee Milky Way Stout

A coffee-infused version of our Milky Way Stout using beans from Boast Coffee here in San Jose.

More details

C-Rations

An IPA brewed in the West Coast style with all 'C' hops: Columbus, Centennial and Citra.

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

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

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

People Power

A Classic American Pilsner is a uniquely American style that evolved from European Pilsners by adding adjuncts. Our malt bill for this uses 20% corn and the beer has been hopped with traditional noble hops. This beer was made for the ACLU's "People Power Beer" movement -- 10% of the proceeds from this beer will be donated to the ACLU.

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

Too Many Secrets

A session oat pale ale that features Citra hops. Don’t worry though - this beer is still accessible even if hoppy beers are not to your taste. Oats play a serious role in the flavor of this delicate ale with the additions of oat malt, golden naked oats (dehusked caramelized oats), and oat flakes. With low to moderate bitterness, the oats provide a berry like flavor to compliment the tropical fruit and citrus of the Citra hops.

More details

ZiggyBarley

A session barley wine?! Wat. Made from the second runnings of a barleywine that will be available in the winter. Complex yet infinitely drinkable, ZiggyBarley is a beer that does not want to be classified.

    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!
