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

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

Boast - Big Beach w/Oats

A coffee innovation from Boast Coffee, this blend has been cold brewed with flaked oats giving the coffee an even smoother taste with a distinct oat-like flavor.

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

Codename: VW

A classic German Helles Weizen-bock. VW is a deceptively dangerous beer which amps up the clove and banana flavors of a Hefeweizen along with a much higher ABV. As with most German styles of beer, the goal is to achieve balance so even with the increased flavors of clove and banana, there should be a minimal increase in sweetness so that the beer remains deceptively easy to drink.

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

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

Drunkle

Our hard root beer. It is blended with fresh-made non-alcoholic root beer to smooth out the flavors and make it deceptively drinkable.

More details

Frères Belge

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

From Prussia With Love

From Prussia With Love is our interpretation of an historical German Kottbusser style ale. Due to violating the German beer purity laws enacted in 1877, this ale ceased to be produced and was lost into history until only recently. Our version features large amounts of wheat and oat malt along with Mexican coffee blossom honey and a touch of molasses. It is light-bodied, and refreshing but with a unique, and complex flavor. The large additions of wheat and oats add a slight tartness and breakfast-like cereal flavor that combines nicely with the distinctive and earthy honey flavor from...

Hopothetical: Ales for ALS

More details

Hopothetical: Medusa

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

Pils for ALS

More details

Wicked Brick

Deep blood red with an intense aroma of American hops balances the sweet malt caramel notes. Enjoy the nearly 4lbs per barrel of American hops in this true West Coast hop bomb!

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:
    Dusseldorf Altbier
