Fuller’s Earns “Five-Star” Rating In The World Beer Championships

Fuller’s Brewery, brewing beer since 1630, is the oldest brewery in London and has won more than 20 awards from Campaign for Real Ale, approximately twice as many as any other brewery in the U.K. Now, Fuller’s continues to take the U.S. by storm, with Fuller’s ESB and Fuller’s London Pride as the only two brands awarded Platinum in this year’s Word Beer Championships.

The World Beer Championships (www.tastings.com), founded in 1994, is America’s oldest international beer competition and is open to all commercially produced beers from around the world, regardless of US distribution. It is a medal-based competition that awards its medals based on the proprietary blind tasting methodology developed by the Beverage Testing Institute (BTI) and five bands of ratings, similar to a five-star hotel rating system, on a 100-point quality rating scale.

The World Beer Championships is an intense competition for beer with thousands of entries and Fuller’s is celebrating not just one, but two, and the only two Platinum awards in this year’s competition.

Fuller’s is honored to have received these awards and is proud that Fuller’s Ales are many times the benchmark for the craft beers brewed in the United States today. There are two main contributors to the unique flavor of Fuller’s beers – Fuller’s exclusive yeast and the two main raw materials Fuller’s Brewery buys: hops and malt. The hops and malts used in each of Fuller’s Ales are of the highest quality.
