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

Boast Coffee - Peru

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

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

Choco-Conaught

This lager has a German base with German Pils malt plus caramel, chocolate, and dark roasted malts to round out the flavor. After fermentation, 3lbs per barrel of toasted coconut are added.

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

Dark Cipher

A dark version of a hefeweizen, this beer combines the maltiness of Munich malt with banana and clove notes coming from the yeast.

More details

Dark Tower

Our most recent collaboration is an apple-beer hybrid that we made with Serventi Ranch in Watsonville, CA. This beer takes its inspiration from the Stephen King book series of the same name. While this style doesn't officially exist, in the books, a graf is said to be dark in color, tart and refreshing with a deceptively high alcohol content. We think our Dark Tower fits the bill. To make this beer we used over 2000 pippin and red delicious apples!

More details

For Fawkes Sake

An English IPA refactored to current tastes, this IPA features use of only UK ingredients featuring Golden Promise and Maris Otter malt, and the surprising combo of Archer and Jester hops. This is a deliciously fruity IPA with these unique hops providing earthy, herbal notes of white sage, apricot, tobacco, and fine corinthian leather.

More details

Forty Hands

Forty Hands is celebration of all our youthful misadventures. While malt liquors have a dubious reputation, Forty Hands has been crafted for flavorful enjoyment rather than cheapness of ingredients. Forty Hands is well balanced lager, with a slight sweetness and a touch of hop bitterness.

More details

Great Pumpkin Porter

This brown porter ale features the additions of pumpkin, spices, and vanilla. You’ll find that these additional flavors complement yet don’t overwhelm the roasty and caramel notes found in our porter.

More details

HRE

HRE is one of our newest IPAs and is made with lots of Columbus, Amarillo, Eukanot, El Dorado and Galaxy hops.

More details

Ploughman's Porter

A porter brewed in the style of the London classic. Popular for it's dark color and strong flavors and aromas of coffee, chocolate and roasted malt. Just enough British hops are added to yield a subdued bitterness that balances the heavy malt body of this dark and characterful beer.

More details

SCIF

A session IPA that features Mosaic hops and is joined with Galaxy, El Dorado and Simcoe as flame-out and dry-hop additions. Regardless of your security clearance, you're sure to enjoy this beer!

More details

Triad

A small twist on a classic style, this Belgian Tripel has been lightly dry-hopped with 2018 Moutere hops.

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.

More details

What Does the Fawkes Say

A recreation of a historic English IPA. This amber colored, full-bodied, malt forward beer gets its spicy notes from tasty English hops. What Does the Fawkes Say? yum yum yumm yum-yum yum-yum yumm!

    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!
