Our Vintage Ales are crafted to be enjoyed on the day they’re released, but because of the yeast that we include in the bottle, it will continue to condition well beyond its official ‘best before’ date. This second fermentation results in a more complex character and a flavour profile that will change over time.
Every bottle of Vintage Ale is individually numbered, representing its part in the limited run in which we brew these beers. Many of our older Vintage Ales are extremely rare, but still much sought after as they represent the pinnacle of Fuller’s brewing in that year.
The price of our Vintage Ales will increase over time as the number of remaining bottles reduces, so the price you see today may be higher tomorrow
