Strong beers with complex characters

We have a Collectors Pack of Vintage Ale from the Fullers Griffin brewery to give away this week. Three bottles of their much sought after Vintage Ale – this year’s limited edition plus a bottle of the 2022 and a bottle of the 2021.

The Vintage ales are designed as strong beers with complex characters, using the best ingredients available at the time.

This year’s brew ‘combines the best of traditional tastes with new hop varieties to deliver this year’s own distinct character. Pale Ale malt is at the heart for delicate sweetness, combined with DRC®, a Double Roasted Crystal malt, to provide deeper toffee and raisin tones’.

It highlights modern English hops, using Opus, Archer, and CF185 ‘to provide peach accents and a pronounced citrus note, underpinned by the zesty marmalade character of our famous Fuller’s yeast’.

To be in with a chance of winning the collection, which retails at £32, just answer this question:

The Griffin brewery has been creating a new Vintage Ale recipe every year for a number of years now. In which year did they start producing their annual Vintage Ale?

Send us your answer to with ‘Vintage ale competition’ in the subject box. We will select a random winner from the correct answers to reach us by midnight on Wednesday 8 November. The winner will need to go and pick up their prize from the Griffin brewery shop at 160 Chiswick Ln S, W4 2QB.
