1917 Imperial Pilsner


Yeast Story

A little rebellion is a good thing

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, which you can download for free, using a QR code on the label

In any case, after all that, you might also be wondering what it tastes like? It has a clean taste, some maltiness, and for a 7.4% beer it is smooth and goes down remarkably easily.

Don't be scared by the high abv, this doesn't taste like a 7.4% beer but a Pilsner with plenty of flavour. A favourite amongst my workmates.
