How we celebrated 173 years of Fuller’s
More than 15,000 people got together at Fuller’s pubs across England to celebrate 173 years of craft brewing at Fuller’s. Here’s how it went…
Fuller’s celebrated 173 years of brewing history on Monday 19 November 2018, recognising the exact day that our founding fathers, John Bird Fuller, Henry Smith and John Turner came together as business partners to create Fuller, Smith and Turner – a day we certainly thought was worth celebrating!
So, in true Fuller’s style, we put our heads together to think about how we could commemorate such a milestone. The result? Fuller’s Get Together – a community get-together at our pubs to celebrate 173 years of local craft brewing with great company, entertainment, food, and, of course, plenty of great beer.
Celebrating 173 years of London brewing
More than 200 Fuller’s pubs across southern England took part in Fuller’s Get Together, each putting on their own special events including quizzes, comedy shows, open mic nights, meet the brewer mixers, tap takeovers and tastings, as well as raffles and charity fundraisers for our new charity partner, Special Olympics GB.
Team members from The Plough Inn in Ealing wear their Fuller's 173 years of craft t-shirts for the Get Together.

Party-goers were able to claim three pints of Fuller’s beer or cider for just £1.73 each, reflecting the 173 years that have passed since they made their partnership official.
