961 Beer began during the dark days of the July 2006 siege on Lebanon. Tired of the lack of quality beer in Lebanon, Mazen Hajjar and his friends started to brew beer in his very own kitchen.
When 961 Beer officially began brewing, it was one of the smallest breweries in the world, and the only microbrewery in the Middle East (and still are).
Imperial Stout – Based on a sweet stout
Discreet, delicate coffee aroma blended with roasted dark malts, slightly sweet taste with a medium body and well-balanced bitterness
Red Ale – Somewhere between an English Amber and American Red Ale
Densely malty and reddish in color. Smooth, round and full-bodied with an intensely fruit, aromatic flavor, and slightly bitter finish
Lager – An old German style of Lager common in the pre-prohibition era, a take on Munich Helles
Malty, yet clean and balanced with mild hops, florals, and grapefruit
Witbier – An interpretation of the Belgian Witbier, perfect for those who prefer a light and fresh beer
Light acidity and low bitterness with orange peel and coriander seed, slightly bready taste
Porter – Brewed using dark roasted malts, hopped with traditional English varities – Traditional English beer
Coffee, chocolate, and nut aromas with a malty, caramel taste
Lebanese Pale Ale – A marriage of Western brewing tradition, Eastern complexity, and Lebanese Renaissance – loosely based on an English IPA
Herbs, spice, thyme, and citrus combine with malts, caramel, and slight bitterness
