Fuller’s

For our 2017 Summer Special, Steve visited Fuller’s Brewery and spent the morning with Head Brewer, Georgina Young.

In this special episode, George shares here brewing journey with us, some background to Fullers and we get to sample ‘Oliver’s Island’, ‘Seafarers’, ‘London Pride’, ‘London Pride Unfiltered’ and ‘India Pale Ale’.

Information on the Fuller’s public tours is available here.

 

This visit was arranged through the Fuller’s PR team and neither the tour or the beers cost us anything. This didn’t change our views on anything and we are grateful for the hospitality shown to us by both the PR team and George.

IMG_5277It’s the end of another season and we say goodbye with a beer that’s becoming our staple end of year finisher, the Fuller’s Vintage Ale (2014 edition).

Released in a box every November, the Fullers Vintage series has been going since 1997 and are produced using what Fuller’s consider to be the ‘best ingredients’ of the year. We were lucky enough this year to interview Fuller’s Director of Brewing John Keeling and that makes this year’s beer just that little bit more special for me.
