1837 is a great beer brewed in honor of heroes who died for their homeland and for freedom.
The 1837 is brewed in memory of our heroes who died for the motherland and freedom during the Patriots War. On December 14 of 1837, Jean-Olivier Chénier, one of the leaders of the rebellion, alongside 60 of his comrades, fell on the battlefield at the battle of Saint-Eustache against the British troops.
One year after these events, two patriots are executed at the Pied-du-Courrant Prison. In January and February of 1839, ten of their companions will suffer the same fate.

Like good wine, Unibroue’s fine beers have flavors that develop with age. Over time they become smoother, sometimes revealing notes of honey and candied fruit and developing a more assertive and lasting flavor. This phenomenon is known as “maderization” and is similar to the aging process of dessert wines like port.
Oxygen is the mortal enemy of beer because oxidation creates a stale, flat flavor. The yeast added to the bottle of Unibroue products triggers natural fermentation, consuming excess oxygen and preventing the beer’s CO2 from oxidizing. This enhances the beer’s aging potential. The high alcohol content of certain Unibroue products also lends itself well to aging by acting as a natural preservative.
