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

Agent Provocator

Doppelbock is usually released according to the Lenten calendar as it was traditionally drank by monks during their period of fasting. It is a rich, bready, and full flavored dark beer with a strong alcohol punch and focus on malt complexity.

More details

ConeBreaker

ConeBreaker was conceived back in the days when IPA meant West Coast IPA; a beer with a dry balance and pleasing bitterness. No hazy, no fruit, no experimental hopping, just unadulterated hops. It was designed with the best base grain, Maris Otter, and a "who's who" list of hops (Columbus/Amarillo/Simcoe) added at all the right points in the brewing process. Sit back and enjoy an IPA the way the brewers of yesteryear love IPAs.

More details

C-Rations

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

More details

Dead Drop

A traditional Munich-style Dunkel, this dark lager is smooth and malty with an easy to drink bitterness.

More details

Fire & Fury

This is a monster of a brown ale features equal portions of malted barley and rye malt as the base grains, and then adds in a large portion of cherrywood smoked barley malt. Even more complexity is added to the beer with additions of a number of caramel and dark malts. To complement all this fury, there is some tongue tingling fire provided by Guajillo and Chile de Arbol chili peppers. This beer is available in extremely limited supplies, on tap ONLY.

More details

Haze-C-Rations

A NE IPA version of our perennial "C-Rations" made with all 'C' hops: Columbus, Centennial and Citra

More details

Hopothetical: 6297

Part of the Hopsteiner breeding program, this hop was bred from a Japanese variety. 6297 has an interesting aroma profile of tangerine, vanilla and tropical fruits. Oh, and then, watch out because the black licorice finish of 6297 may surprise you. BTW, after we brewed this beer, this hop has now earned a name "Lotus"!

More details

Hopothetical: 7270

Hopsteiner experimental hop 7270 is a high alpha acid hop that provides a very dank aroma and complex spicy, citrus, and resinous flavors.

More details

ICA

We call this beer an India Cream Ale (ICA) because it is a hybrid IPA and Cream Ale. A cream ale is an extremely light-bodied blond ale usually made with an addition of an adjunct such as maize. In this case, we used a healthy amount of organic corn malt plus Simcoe, Chinook, El Dorado, and Vic Secret hops.

More details

Incognito

This kettle sour was generously hopped with Mosaic, Simcoe and Galaxy. These fruit-forward hops combine nicely with the underlying tartness to yield a unique taste experience! Don't shy away from trying this one.

More details

Original Hipster

For our anniversary, we decided to go back a few years to a more old school Hipster formulation. Original Hipster has a more aggressive bitterness charge like during the days before we knew NE IPA's would become a thing. Original Hipster is still cool though with Columbus, Chinook, Simcoe, El Dorado, and Galaxy hops.

More details

Roger St. Brut

This beer was the creation of Roger St. Denis for the Headquarters Homebrew Club Experimental Hops Contest using Hopsteiner Experimental hop 6300. We found that the brut IPA style lets this unique hop shine. Look for a bit of dill and tropical fruit in the aroma with a pronounced and lingering coconut flavor. All from this one hop!

More details

Stratasphere

Strata is a relatively new proprietary hop varietal developed by Oregon State University and Indie Hops. Strata has been described as "passion fruit meets pot" and it is definitely one of the more danker hops we've brewed with. Our Stratasphere Pale Ale is generously hopped with Strata and also Summit and Chinook for a taste that is, well, out of this world.

More details

Triad

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

    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!
