Fullers Brewery or 'Fuller Smith & Turner PLC' has been brewing beer on the historic Griffin Brewery site in Chiswick, West London since the seventeenth century. While they are known most widely for their 'London Pride' and other award-winning ales such as Chiswick Bitter, ESB and 1845, their Vintage Ale is a very special treat released annually at Christmastime. Beginning in 1997, Fullers has created a new recipe of Vintage Ale each year, picking the best ingredients at the time, to make a strong beer with a complex character. Every bottle of Vintage Ale is individually numbered, making our older Vintage Ales extremely rare and sought after. It can be enjoyed immediately, or Fuller's recommends laying the beer down to enjoy when it peaks in 3 to 4 years and consume at cellar temperature.
