Более 400 лет тому назад в западном предместье Лондона, начала свою работу пивоварня Griffin (Гриффин-от англ. Грифон-бдительный страж).
Долгие годы пивоварня “Гриффин” была неким компактным семейным предприятием с устоявшейся клиентурой, и хозяев это вполне устраивало, но в начале XIX века пивоварне был необходим инвестиционный партнер, коим стал Джон Фуллер.
В 1845 году пивоварня была переименована в пивоварню “Гриффин Бруэри Фуллерс”, как следствие нового партнерского союза - Fuller, Smith & Turner. С тех пор, компания начала активно развиваться, завод расширился, а дела пошли настолько успешно, что в 1909 году была куплена компания Beehive Brewery (Бихайв Бруэри) и принадлежащие ей 34 паба.
Сегодня пивоварня “Fuller's” это независимая процветающая компания и единственная пивоварня Лондона, во владении которой более 360 пабов и почти два десятка гостиниц.
“Fuller's” - является тем самым местом, где традиции и бесценное наследие встречаются с современным оборудованием и инновациями. Так рождаются знаменитые сорта из Лондона.
Ни одна английская пивоварня не может похвастаться такими достижениями как пивоварня “Fuller's”, которая по праву является абсолютным лидером по завоеванным британским и международным наградам, подтверждающих исключительной качество и английские традиции.
