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

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’. However, our Boycott Best Bitter is much 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

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

Dark Tower

This 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

Double Standard

Double Standard has loads of Cascade, Centennial, Amarillo, and Simcoe hops but this beer is not just about the hops. Double Standard has a nice balance of high ABV, malty sweetness, and a pleasing bitter hop finish. And there's one more thing, we have added Pomelo zest. Pomelo is the largest member of the citrus family and has a highly aromatic peel that suggests grapefruit and guava.

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

Smokescreen

Baltic porters are high alcohol, robust porters that originated in the Baltic states. However, unlike their English...fermentation to give the a crisp, clean flavor. Our twist on this style incorporates smoked German malt. Don't get distracted by this Smokescreen!

More details

Strong Arm

A light, crisp and aromatic ale with a strong punch of alcohol. This beer has a dry finish yet retains the esters of your favorite monk’s treat.

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

These Boots Are...

The Pink Boots Society is a professional organization for female brewers. Each year, in collaboration with Yakima Chief Hops, breweries are provided with a special hop blend to celebrate female brewers across the country. Our beer this year is a West-Coast style, double IPA that was generously double-dry hopped with the Pink Boots blend. This beer was created and brewed on International Women’s Day exclusively by two Pink Boots members at the brewery. A portion of the sale of this beer will go back to the Pink Boots Society to continue fostering women in brewing.

More details

Tripel Agent

A classic Belgian tripel: deceptively potent, with a deep golden color and soft, enticing drinkability.

More details

Undercover

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

    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!
