Fuller's Chiswick Bitter receives award from Castle Rock Brewery

Fuller, Smith & Turner P.L.C., the London brewer and premium pub company, is delighted to announce the success of its beer Chiswick Bitter in the 2014-2015 Beer of the Year awards from Nottingham’s Castle Rock brewery.

Chiswick Bitter was awarded the runner up prize for beer of the year in a competition that has been running for 16 years. The event this year was hosted by the brewery’s chairman Geoff Newton in the Canalhouse, Nottingham. Chiswick Bitter achieved its award through pub customers voting for their favourite guest beers throughout the year, which in Newton’s words “shows how interest in, and knowledge of, cask ales flourishes”.

Ian Bray, Managing director of Fuller’s Beer Company said “It is a real joy to see our products receiving success and recognition in different parts of the country. This is testament to everyone’s passion and hard work at Fuller’s”.
