Past Masters 1966 Strong Ale, which is 7.3% ABV, has been recreated by Fuller’s master brewers to a recipe that dates back to the year of ‘flower power’, The Beatles and a certain successful football tournament.
“Strong Ale is a great and original style beer, which truly gives us a taste of the past, rekindling memories of when England lifted the World Cup at Wembley,” said Fuller’s head brewer, John Keeling. “We are so lucky to have all of these fantastic recipes written down by my brewing predecessors. Importantly, we recreate the ingredients and processes to follow the recipe as closely as possible. It really is a glimpse into our unique brewing history.”
The Fuller’s brewbooks have recorded each beer ever brewed in such meticulous detail, that the temperature was 56 degrees Farenheit at 6am on the day of the first Strong Ale brew, Monday 20 June 1966.
Past Masters Strong Ale is on limited release from Fuller’s Brewery Shop in Chiswick and from the Fuller’s online store at £4.50 per 500ml bottle.
