Sankofa Beer Company, is a Washington, DC based producer and distributor of premium craft beer, inspired by the founders' connection to West Africa. We are on a mission to expand the conventions of craft beer by creating a space where culture meets craft. SANKOFA (San-Koh-Fa) is a word from the Ashanti/Akan people in Ghana and translates to “Go back and get”. It is visually represented by a mythic bird with its head turned backwards with an egg in its beak, or as a stylized heart. Sankofa is a symbol for the understanding that in order to ensure a strong future you must return to collect and understand your past. This understanding resonates with us and has truly inspired us as we write the story for Sankofa Beer.
