Fuller's 1845 Celebration Ale is an English Strong Ale with a real story to it. Although brewing dates back to 1654 at Griffin Brewery, situated on the banks of the River Thames, the partnership of Fuller, Smith And Turner was formed in 1845. In 1995, to commemorate the 150th anniversary of that landmark in brewing history, Fuller's commissioned a special, celebratory ale. 1845 was the result.
A more auspicious beginning the brew could not have had; with the inaugural beer's hops added to the copper by none other than HRH Prince of Wales, during a royal visit to Fuller's! The beer is a highly acclaimed Strong Ale and the winner of numerous awards, such as the CAMRA Champion Bottle Conditioned Beer of Britain (1998-1999 and 2002) and the British Bottle Institute's award for the Best Dressed Bottle (1996). Most recently, Fuller's 1845 has won a Silver medal at the 2003 CAMRA Great British Beer Festival, in the bottle-conditioned beer category.
Pours deep amber-brown with a medium-sized, beige-coloured head. Great head retention and lacing on the glass. Floral hop aromas dominate, along with coffee and caramel tones present. On the palate, a sweet malty start soon moves to caramel and chocolate. A lovely dry hoppy taste finishes and lingers, along with hints of coffee and spices. Brilliantly smooth and full in mouthfeel.

Avec Les Bon Voeux - a 9.5% ABV super-saison in the top 99.4% of saisons according to ratebeer.com. This beer originated in 1970, when Dupont began brewing a special beer as a new years present for their most loyal customers (the name literally translates to "with the best wishes of the brewery Dupont"). The demand for the beer was so large as to necessitate a reservations list - some customers placing their orders months before the new year! Thankfully the beer is now brewed year round, albeit in limited quantities. Having sampled a few of these since their arrival, we can tell you that with each mouthful we fall more in love with this beer.
