Brewer's Reserve No. 1
A beer brewed with spirit
Over a late night dram one winter evening, Fuller’s Head Brewer, John Keeling, and a certain Master Distiller pondered a new concept in beer. A strong ale with the characteristics of a spirit. Some four years and several whisky casks later, Brewer’s Reserve No.1 was born.
Patience is a virtue
Aged in 30-year-old single malt casks for exactly 500 days, Brewer’s Reserve No.1 is a lesson in craftsmanship, innovation and patience. To experience it now might require a little patience on your part too; released as a limited edition, it’s no longer available to buy – but it may reappear at special Fuller's events in the future.
Complex and distinctive, this rich amber ale balances hoppy bitterness and tangy marmalade fruit. Brewed to 7.7% ABV, it’s infused with subtle whisky flavours and characteristics absorbed from the cask, with the palate rounded off by smoky vanilla notes.
