Brewer's Reserve No.1
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.
The perfect flavour combo for duck
A rich, amber coloured beer with orange and peppery aromas. Fruity flavours with orange coming to the fore and also caramel, toffee, vanilla and a touch of whisky. The orange notes make it good accompaniment to duck and will complement the flavour of the meat perfectly.

A journey of discovery
Brewer’s Reserve No.4 starts its story across the Channel, in the Bas region of France. It’s there that one of the finest, rarest Armagnacs, Comte de Lauvia, is made – and it’s there we travelled to bring the old Armagnac casks back to Griffin Brewery.
