The beer of British summer

The beer of British summer time, Fuller’s Summer Ale is the only way to celebrate hazy, lazy days in the sun. It’s light, smooth and effortlessly drinkable at just 3.9% ABV. Best served chilled, it’s a beer to tempt even the most loyal of lager fans. Summer Ale is brewed with the Czech Saaz hop variety – a common ingredient of the world’s finest pilseners.

Raise a glass

International hop varieties are often associated with new-wave craft brewers - but we’ve been using Czech hops in our Summer Ale ever since it was first brewed in the 1990s
