Holding the original Fuller’s tap handle from 20 years ago, Jeff Eagan, left, and his partner, Jeff Reich, stand in front of a vintage Fuller’s sign that has hung in the 74th St Ale House since opening day, April 4, 1991. To commemorate the 20th anniversary celebration of a Fuller’s landmark in America, Fuller’s Brewery sent a special case of Fuller’s Brewers Reserve No. 2, and a certificate personally signed by Fuller’s Chairman, Michael Turner.
Eagan enjoyed his first pint of Fuller’s ESB in 1982 in London at the beautiful Victorian pub called the Warrington. A year after he opened the 74th St. Ale House in 1992, Anthony Fuller, then brewery chairman, personally visited the pub.
“That same year I visited London and the Fullers Brewery, but Mr. Fuller was not in. He later sent me a personal letter regretting not having been there to show me around much as I had shown him around our pub. I have the letter framed and hanging at the alehouse,” said Eagan. “ Needless to say, we are loyal to the brand! In the 20 years the 74th. St. Ale House has operated, the Fullers tap handle has never changed. That cannot be said for any of the other 17 tap handles we represent.”
