Brewed for 600 years Purmerend 1410 is een levend, niet gepasteuriseerd, bovengistend bier. 1410 onderscheidt zich door een zeer aangename balans tussen fruitigheid en hopbitterheid in combinatie met een bescheiden alcohol percentage. 1410 is een uniek en karaktervol speciaalbier voor Purmerend waarbij de aangename hopbitterheid garant staat voor doordrinkbaarheid gedurende alle 4 de seizoenen in het jubileumjaar 2010. 1410, het Purmerendse speciaalbier, heeft haar naam te danken aan de volgende historische beschrijving: In 1410 was Waterland in handen van Graaf Willem VI. Zijn schatbewaarder Willem Eggert moest er de orde herstellen en kreeg in 1410 de heerlijkheid Purmerend in leen. Binnen drie jaar bouwde hij slot Purmersteijn op een strategische plek, daar waar de weg tussen Amsterdam en Hoorn, de Where kruist. Willem Eggert overleed in 1417. Water, Pils-, Pale Ale-, Kristal-, Tarwe- en Zwarte mout, Havervlokken, Saaz-,Challenger- en East Kent Goldings hop en Gist.
