The Fuller’s Brewery has been established more than 350 years ago. It is located in Chiswick, in west London.
In 1829, as the owners were in financial trouble, they asked for the help of a new investor, John Fuller. The partnership appeared to be arduous without the help of a master brewer and in 1845, John Bird Fuller, John Fuller’s son, associated with Henry Smith and Master Brewer John Butler to form Fuller Smith & Turner, the company which is still in place today.
Throughout the years, the company established its reputation as a great brewery and pub manager. Indeed, this is the only British brewery awarded the “Champion Beer of Britain” title for three beers: London Pride, ESB and Chiswick Bitter.
In 2005, the brewery owned more than 360 pubs in total.
