The Rake at Admiral Maltings

Admiral Maltings' brand new pub in Alameda overlooking the floor malting facility. 20+ beers made with Admiral's malt on tap, plus, rustic pub fare.

The Rake at Admiral Maltings

We discovered what Rammstein’s been singing about this entire time. Du Hast is a one heck-of-a Munich dunkel! The 5%abv lager from Burning Beard Brewing has a nice hoppy start, and uses our Admiral Pils, Red 7, and Admiral’s Hearth malts to achieve tasty notes of roasted toffee with a malty finish. Drop by to try one, you'll be singing its praises as well!


[03/24/19]   Don't be a couch potato, get off your rump, head to The Rake, and have us pour you one. Berryessa Brewing co's Couch Potato is a 7%abv IPA made from purple potatoes, Idaho 7 hops, and Admiral Pils malt. This spud’s for you!


We do flights! This is the perfect way to pick your adventure while visiting us. Stick to rare beers, focus on one type of malt, select beers with funny names - it’s all up to you!

Rare beer alert!
Our friends Cellador Ales, down south, sent us their Famille, one of the first beers ever with a name Chris, our French bartender can pronounce.

A saison brewed with our own Admiral Maltings Pilsner malt and fermented in oak barrels with their house mixed cultures . Now on tap! #TheRakePub

We're known for truly special, hard to find beers, but don't forget our food menu too! From sandwiches and salads, to cured meats, cheeses, and patés, all are geared to pair well with beer.

Just like our malt, we go the extra mile to source locally and sustainably as much as we can. Visit our site to view the current menu and taplist: #TheRakePub

A smooth, sessionable Irish Stout is just the ticket to take you into the weekend.

Now on tap: Freewheel Brewing Company’s full-bodied Way Out Stout (4.6% abv) bursts with roasted aromas and bittersweet flavors of coffee and chocolate and ends with a dry finish. Brewed with our Maiden Voyage and Kilnsmith II malts! #TheRakePub

We are excited to have the Bennett Sac Style back on tap.
Our friends at Alaro Craft Brewery used our Maiden Voyage malt and Azacca, Simcoe, Mt Hood and Simcoe hops to create an incredibly well balanced American Pale Ale. Come and enjoy it while it lasts. #TheRakePub

The Rake at Admiral Maltings

Our cooler is always filled with kegs of super special and super rare beers, but thanks to Beer Week last month and all of our close friends who dropped by to show us what they're doing with #AdmiralMaltings malts, our it's now filled to the brim!

Come soon and come often to taste them all before each keg runs dry. We've presently got collabs by Admiral Maltings/ ThirstyBear Organic Brewery and Berryessa Brewing co/ Cellarmaker Brewing Company, alongside Rabbit Eyes Farmhouse Ale by Smog City Brewing(never found in the Bay), Song In Your Heart English Style Mild by Discretion Brewing, and over the next couple of months will tap additional beers by Pizza Port Brewing Co., Standard Deviant Brewing, , and Temescal Brewing to name just a few. Do yourself the favor and stop by. #TheRakePub

How about Something English?

This 4.8% highly sessionable and balanced English Bitter from Armistice Brewing Company threads the needle between biscuity malts and earthy hops, thanks to our Feldblume and Admiral's Hearth, and earthy East Kent Golding hops.

It's a good 'ol fashioned traditional beer made with excellent ingredients. #TheRakePub

The Rake at Admiral Maltings

Get a jump on beer week (2/1 - 2/10) by hanging out at #TheRakePub, where malt is the new hops. Our passion isn't just beer, but the role malt plays in the process, so consider us your experts on the heart and soul of beer: malt. Experts who want to pass that knowledge along to the beer enthusiasts of the amazing beer community we have here in The Bay Area. #TheRakePub

An important public service announcement: The time has come for you to stop and take a moment to plan out your San Francisco Beer Week, the epic celebration of Bay Area beer culture that is hurtling toward us with comet-like velocity.

For Admiral Maltings, this 11th SF Beer Week picks up right where we left off last year, with another dizzying and humbling array of Beer Week collaborations made with our malt and an even bigger slate of events designed to showcase malt’s foundational role in beer. If you make even half of these events the foundation of your Beer Week, you, too, will come away with a deep appreciation for malt as the soul of beer and the way the return to brewing with local grains makes our craft beer culture even better. It’s truly the next chapter in the good beer movement of the past four decades!

We'll be talking more about them leading up to Beer Week but we'll see you at these events!

Opening Gala – 2/1 @ Pier 35

SF Beer Week Collaboration Beer Showcase – all week at The Rake

Understanding Malt – 2/2 @ 18 Reasons (1:30pm)

Beer is Agriculture: A Grain to Glass Tour, Tasting and Discussion – 2/9 @ Admiral and Almanac (1:30pm)

Admiral Maltings Showcase Series – 2/2-2/10 around the Bay

The Sebastopol-based Woodfour Brewing Co. used our Gallagher’s Best and Admiral’s Hearth in Frosty’s Lament Winter Belgian Dubbel (7.4% abv) to come up with a nice and strong, malty, Belgian-style Dubbel to stave away the winter chill.

It’s rich and complex with excellent harmony between malt and yeast-derived flavors and aromas. You'll definitely want to check this one out before it's gone. #TheRakePub

As a proud sponsor of the 11th (!) beer week, Admiral Maltings has a flight of events in the works and you can expect some special can’t-miss beer week action with #TheRakePub too!

All of our beers are special, but make a point to stop by during beer week, Feb. 2-10, as we’re going to have some extra, extra special beers on tap. More details forthcoming, so watch this space! #TheRakePub

New Beer On Tap!

We've never had a beer from South Lake Tahoe’s South Lake Brewing Company at The Rake, and we're stoked that time has finally come. Young Punks is their ode to the British classic: E.S.B (extra special bitter).

They used our Maiden Voyage and Kilnsmith I malts to lend this beer a base of rustic bread spread with honey and English sweets. Hopped exclusively with East Kent Golding hops adds additional notes of marmalade, floral, and earthy herbs to this crusher of an ale (5.6% abv). #TheRakePub

The Rake at Admiral Maltings

With playoff football in full swing, make a point to catch the games at #TheRakePub, where we have a tap list as exciting as the action on the field.

Our range of 20 #craftbeers on tap, and 2 in cask, are small-batch offerings and special collaborations in a wide range of styles. Even some that aren't common in the US. Your team may not win, but your taste buds will!

The special craft-collabs keep landing here at #TheRakePub!

Following the characteristics of its inspiration, the French 75 cocktail made with gin, lemon juice, champagne, and sugar, "French 99" is a Brut-style French Saison with French oak and lemon. Brewed at San Diego’s South Park Brewing in collaboration with Arne Johnson and Marin Brewing Company, this light and refreshing 6.2% abv beer is brewed with Admiral Maltings Admiral Pilsner and Feldblume malts. À votre santé!

Faultline Brewing Company has been holding down the fort in Sunnyvale since the early days of the #craftbeer movement way back in 1994.

For his first Admiral-based beer, Brewmaster Peter Catizone opted for an English-inspired pale ale, not unlike the kind of beers that started to change the way the #BayArea thought about beer back in the late 80's and early 90's. It’s a 5.2% lesson in balance, built around #AdmiralMaltings Maiden Voyage and Kilnsmith I #craftmalt, with a subtle charge of American hops (Centennial and Amarillo). This one’s tasty, and it won't last long, so let's see you soon! #TheRakePub #MaltMatters

You'll always have a seat waiting for you at The Rake Pub!

Come down and drink with us in 2019! #AskForAdmiral #AdmiralMaltings

The Bay Area's best new places to drink

Thank you San Francisco Chronicle!

2018, the year in drinking and #TheRakePub made the prestigious list. Who's coming to see us in the new year? Another year, another new set of reasons to drink. Luckily, the Bay Area’s talented crop of bartenders, wine directors and beer nerds never seems to sleep, and 2018 turned out a fantastic new crop of places to dine, hang out and discover great beer, wine and cocktails. While some of our favorite 2...

Admiral Maltings was founded on the desire to provide local, sustainably grown #craftmalt alternatives to the industrialized malt produced to the demands and standards of the big-beer industry.

#TheRakePub is the place that showcases the fruits of all of that labor as our tap list reflects the diverse spectrum of #craftbeer that local brewers have made with #AdmiralMaltings malt. Make a point to come in soon to taste them for yourself, we’ve got a special experience that #beerlovers are sure to enjoy!

You can view our present tap list here:
#MaltMatters #NoMaltNoBeer

In before the new year, now on tap!

Woods Bar & Brewery’s La Morena is a slightly roastier-than-usual, English-style brown ale (5.2% abv), with notes of toast and caramel. It’s a beer that’s all about its malt profile and, after several years of being built around an heirloom English variety, Woods just switch the foundation of this beer to our Gallagher’s Best malt, something we were incredibly honored to learn. Come join us for a taste!
