1917 is living history in a bottle.
It is, quite simply, a beer created around a very special yeast – this yeast was last used commercially in St Petersburg in 1917, just before the Tzar was shot.
So fittingly, we approached local Guildford band Subsource – who are known for their revolutionary spirit – and together we brewed this beer – called 1917.
Subsource were so inspired by this, that they’ve also gone on to produce a track called 1917
It has a clean taste, some maltiness, and for a 7.4% beer it is smooth and goes down remarkably easily.
