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.

Revisited 07 – Bengal Lancer

 

For this revisited we head back to a beer we tackled in one of our early shows, Fuller’s Bengal Lancer IPA.

The first time round we struggled to identify some flavours, how will we get on this time?

It’s Beer O’clock. Revisited.

The Fifth Beer of Christmas

 

This beer has become something of a Christmas tradition for me, but then I guess that’s the idea of it. 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.

The UK Top 10 Ales

 

We have our first brewery to win 2 polls, running away with the votes on this one…

1. Marble Pint 3.9% ABV (bitter)
Former guest on the show and Manchester-based blogger Rowan Molyneux has this to say about the winning beer… Marble has been one of my favourite breweries since I started drinking beer, and when I moved to Manchester I was delighted to be able to drink in Marble’s own pubs. Zingy, pale and fresh, Pint is a stalwart of the Marble range. Full-bodied despite its low ABV, the grapefruit and lemon flavours sing from the glass and its clean, refreshing nature leads you towards ordering another, and another…. To drink this by anything less than, well, the pint, would be an injustice! For me, Pint is the perfect session beer.

Wallowing In a Month’s Worth of Ale – April 2014

April was always only going to be about one thing – Magic Rock’s ‘Un-Human Cannonball 2014’ release. But more about that later.

We started the month with a review of Brains Craft Brewery / The Beer Channel collaboration ‘Black Mountain’ which you can listen to here.

Episode 65 – Fuller’s Special

It’s the end of part 1 of Season 4, and what better way to mark the midpoint of a London-themed season than talk to the brewery that leads the London ale scene: Fuller’s of Chiswick.

The boys were lucky enough to get time with Fullers’ Director of Brewing, John Keeling, for a super-long interview and beer tasting. John covered everything from how he started, tips for home brewers, and the long history of the Fuller’s line.
