About Our Craft
1947. Bold Year. Bold Beer.
1947. It’s not just a number—it was a year where the unthinkable and impossible became reality.
1947 symbolizes what this beer represents. A year in which the world witnessed some amazing accomplishments, and people dared to think differently:
India gained its independence after being ruled for 200 years
Cambridge University began to admit women as full time-students
The basic concept of cellular phones was created
Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier becoming the first African-American to play in Major League Baseball
Great Standalone Beer,
Pairs Extremely Well with Food
So what’s 1947 taste like?
Since 1947 represents a bold year, we couldn’t just have a beer that tasted ordinary. We handcrafted a light bodied lager with great rich character that is reflective of its name. The beer is flavorful on the front end and is specially brewed to have a smooth finish.
And we didn’t stop there. We also dared to think differently. We pushed beyond the limits of a great beer and wanted to create the perfect beer that would complement food with a little kick - because sometimes you need a little kick to accomplish great things! And our palettes were tired of the same old, tentative responses.
So take your pick—Indian, Asian, BBQ, Mexican fare. 1947 offers the perfect pairing for food with a little spice to it.
So much so that renowned celebrity chefs from around the country are using it in and with their recipes.
And judges with knowledgeable palettes have confirmed what a great standalone beer this is:
