Cellarmaker Brewing Company is happy to announce the return of Taco Hands IPA. We originally brewed this beer back in November with two of the coolest people in the world – Jean and Julie from Tired Hands Brewing Company in Ardmore, Pennsylvania. Not only do we consider the beers coming out of Tired Hands to be incredibly well-crafted and delicious, but their constant quest for weird (with a purpose) beers is very inspirational to us as brewers and we were very stoked to brew with them.
There is no better time to celebrate a Taco Spiced IPA than Cinco de Mayo. Therefore, both of our establishments, neither of which is normally open on a Monday, will indeed, be open on Monday, May 5th. A celebration of tacos, beer, Taco IPA, and weird beer in general. Please join us on May 5th. We will be open from 3-11pm – there will be tacos available for purchase!
This batch was brewed with our good friends from the Nopalito Restaurants in San Francisco. The only place you will find Taco Hands IPA on draft in San Francisco other than Cellarmaker’s tasting room is at either of the Nopalito locations.
For those who may have not tried this beer last time.. Taco Hands is an IPA coming in around 6.6% ABV and 52 ITUs (International Taco Units). It is hopped with generous amounts of Citra and Motueka and has tortilla shells and chips added during the mash. The rest of the ingredients are added towards the end of the boil (lime zest, lime juice, cumin, coriander, black pepper, sea salt, pasilla chiles, and cilantro.) We hope you enjoy this savory, hoppy, citrusy treat.
The tasting room will be closed a little earlier than normal at 9pm on Friday, May 2nd and all day on Saturday, May 3rd so that Cellarmaker staff can attend the World Famous Boonville Beer Festival in Anderson Valley.
